Thanks Michele!

I’d like to say thank you to Michele Agnew for making me her site of the day on Wednesday. It generated a lot of traffic and I went to visit all the people that stopped by and found some great blogs and websites.

For those of you that have not visited Michele’s website, I highly recommend you do so. It is highly unique and a lot of fun. She posts games on a daily basis that provide people the opportunity to meet other people out in the blog world.

I also want to thank all the visitors for their kind comments. All in all it was a lot of fun.

And now on to other news.

What is the oddest book title you’ve ever come across? Bookseller.com is holding a poll on oddest title. The site has a list of six odd titles to choose from. Check it out here.

British insurance companies seem to have a lot of claims involving animals and food. Forex, British motorists made claims last year for everything from a frozen squirrel crashing through a car windshield to a cow jumping on a quad bike. Read more here.

For those of you looking to waste a little time today, why don’t you go and Dodge The Dot?

Have a great weekend everyone!

Those dreaded frozen squirrels are a nuisance... worse yet are the igneous beavers in Manitoba. Those can wreak havoc on your vehicle as well. I used half the washer fluid trying to put it out.

Nice to see you again Nienke.

"Ancient Starch Research?" would that be about the contents of my pantry's potato drawer?

Melissa Marsh said...

That whole dodging the dart thing could drive a person nuts!

Mark said...

Oddest title?

Hands down it was "Die Shmurz". A book so obscure I can't even Google it up.

Dot dodging. What will they think of next?

I'm such a doofus. I played the dot game and when it went black, I continued to stop so I could try and read the message. Until I realized it basically said to keep playing...great game!

Hi Nienke. I discovered your site through Michele's, and am so glad I did.

Looks like I've got lots of reading to do in the days to come: your site is a welcome respite for those who write, and for those who aspire to write.

All the best.
