As before, we have broken down the blog into three departments. One we call “Bits and Pieces of an Ordinary Life. Another, “Begged and Borrowed”, includes items lifted from outside sources that we feel would be worth passing on. We call the third “Etc. Etc. Etc.” for just what that expression implies.
Each article for this week is located in a drop down menu in the bar above the main photo. Just hover over the category with your mouse and select the entry you wish to read. You may also access the individual articles by selecting “open” at the end of each preview below.
“BITS AND PIECES OF AN ORDINARY LIFE”
To do justice to this blog’s ‘Bits and Pieces’ submission, and out of consideration for our readers’ time and energy, we have broken down ‘WhizBang Summer’ into four chapters. We must bow to the reality that in this world of high-tech information delivery, a reader’s attention span is often measured in seconds.

“BEGGED AND BORROWED”
Every day we come across something in the media, on the internet or in other peoples’ blogs that we find interesting or important enough to share with others. It’s sorta like sharing something one has run across in a newspaper or magazine without the postage.

“ETC, ETC, ETC”
Etc. Etc. Etc. could be just about anything else we would enjoy sharing with our Blog family.
