This Caught My Eye

 Happy Saturday. It's Derby Day--have a mint julep on my behalf. I hope you bet on the winner. Don't ask me who I am betting on. I have a track record of picking the LAST horse.

In the meantime, here's a Saturday round-up, a few posts--some from Blogathoners, others not-- and articles that stuck with me this week:

Will Your Blog be Obsolete? Our blogs aren't exactly collected letters, are they? Who will remember what we wrote? Who will be able to even READ what we wrote?

Social Media Wills? Are you KIDDING me? I have enough to worry about.

The Scale of Things. Whoa.

Women Afraid Of Math? We don't think so.

Annie C. Logue ALWAYS makes me smarter.

Wow. Even 6-year-old boys get the (bad) media message.

And since I am now a jogger, this from two minutes ago:
Joggers Live Longer

Thank you for reminding me of the Derby. I knew I bought bourbon for a reason.

Thank you very much for the mention of my blog. And speaking of mint juleps- I spent a very busy day traveling today, and I wish I could just settle down with a mint julep now!

Sheila, Glad I could help out. My bourbon was GREAT.

Bookworm, my pleasure. And a mint julep was a very nice way to end the day.

Interesting though if my blog will be obsolete. Absolutely, is my thought and probably sooner than later. Since my blog chronicles my running, I want to get a book made of the blog. When my blog is obsolete I'll then have a printed copy.
