Friday the 13th falls on a Friday this month, so it behooves us to beware lest we be befuddled. If you don’t know Pogo, my first recommendation to you is to read the Wiki on Pogo and then read some of the strips. You’re welcome.
I can’t remember if I recommended this guy before, but I’m recommending him now: Nick Piche. Besides being a fan of the Oxford comma (a comma after EVERY “and” and “or” in a series), he writes killer fiction.
If you’re seriously locavore and have the room for some structures (and your neighborhood codes allow it), have a look at Suburban Hobby Farmer by Bill Brikiatis. Lots of good stuff there!
Our #4 daughter showed me this video and I have to share it:
It snowed here overnight, so I went looking for programs to make my own snowflakes. Here’s a fun one. Or, if you’re old-skool, you can cut some out of paper with Martha Stewart. With Martha Stewart’s instructions, I mean. You wouldn’t actually use Martha Stewart in place of scissors. If she were that sharp, she wouldn’t have done time, am I right? (Sorry, Martha! I love ya, gal!)
WRITING PROMPT: If you love cold weather, write a character who hates it. If you hate it, write a character who loves it.

Pogo was SO terrific! It could veer from gentle sweetness to the sharpest satire. Brilliant work, day after day. 🙂
