Friday finds: Week 8 – 2019

Here are the usual list of websites I have visited this week

The great thing about writing a blog just for fun is that I can write when I feel like it at let it be when I don’t. I must admit that this week I have not written much. I have spent some time answering emails from readers. Remember, I intend to answer each and every one of those who write to me, even if I am not able to help. If you have tried to contact me and not got a response, send me another mail and give me a kick in the butt.

So, on to the list…..
