Each month, I find many more things than I can use, so have decided to start publishing some of those that were not used for the newsletter on this blog most Fridays.

I do not go into much depth about each one, I just put them out there for you. Check them out for yourself and let me know what you think.

Temporary Suspension of Interesting Internet Finds

This post is the last for 2015, as I have family commitments that will not give me time to compile more during the next couple of weeks.

Regular Friday posts will resume January 8, 2016.
