Like the day tripper of musical fame, I’m taking the easy way out on this week’s Friday Five. How so? By offering up five recent, more-than-decent blog posts, each about five things. Which means that this week you’re actually getting 25 things for the price of five. That’s better than your average Friday Five, which is always a great deal for the money. So, enjoy, and you’re welcome. Happy reading, and happy weekend.
