I am still in the process of rebuilding my blogroll. It appears TPTB do not like all of the open communication between us. Possibly why many of our blogrolls were wiped. Open enrollment is on! Post a link to your blog in any comments section for me to check out. If I like the stuff you post I will add you to the blogroll.

Enjoy the day my friends!
