Pasadena Intelligence Officer, it does look like you were working on your day off! Or, at least blogging.

To be able to smile and do splits like that....Wow.

Mike: Yep, I worked on Thursday from about 2 to 9. Got a lot done in total peace and quiet!

Margaret: Wow is right. I can't do that anymore (as if I ever could).

Petrea: I linked the Black History Parade item to the news release with all the details.

Karin: La Pintoresca is a lovely little library with plenty of great programs to boot. All of our branches are standouts!

Pas Adjacent: I add sites to my blogroll as I discover them. If you or anybody is aware of local blogs that I'm missing, please let me know.
