Five for Friday

Here are some good links to share from recent cruising amongst my RSS Reader.

By the way, if you don't have an RSS Reader, I would consider getting one. If you have a Google account, the Google Reader is waiting for you. If you don't have a Google account, you might consider Bloglines. Both are free services. Both provide similar functionality. I did use Bloglines for years before converting to the Google Reader to take more advantage of the inter-operation available with all of Googles' applications and tools.
