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.

I think that ilovefreesoftware has found a great free image site. I like that attribution is already applied to the photo.
