Best of our TU Independent Bloggers, February 9, 2017: Ten for Thursday

Good morning all.  Hopefully you didn’t wake up to the “oh crap I gotta find the shovel and dig out that igloo where I parked my car last night” feeling.

Well, if you’re going to go out and shovel today … at least do it with the knowledge that you’ve read a great blog post today, and that’s the most important thing.

And here’s several great blog posts by the Times Union’s independent and community blogging crew – the ones who write because their ideas need to be heard and shared.

So what are you waiting for?  Get some coffee and enjoy.

This week’s group of great reading includes:

  1. Fran Rossi Szpylczyn’s “There Will Be Bread” blog, “Mensch making.(Read this first.)
  2. Susanne Marie Poulette’s blog, “Why we shouldn’t ‘get over it,’ and twelve actions we can take.
  3. Lale Davidson’s “Out of the Ordinary” blog, “Boycotts and bans.
  4. David Kalish’s “The Ruminator” blog, “World celebrates its survival after President Trump’s first three weeks in office.
  5. Alicia Abdul in the books blog, “We’re all animals.
  6. Lawrence White’s “Field of View” blog, “The Temple of Trump.”
  7. Anne Carey Tobin, M.D. in the Holistic Health blog, “Change is scary.
  8. Rob Hoffman in the “Hoffman Files” blog, “Go ahead, you can judge an album by its cover.
  9. Brad Shear in the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society blog, “Pet Loss.
  10. Sonja Stark’s “PilotGirl” blog, “Cold weather cures for cabin fever.

Everybody have a great day today, enjoy these and other Times Union community and independent blogs, and after you’ve finished digging your car out of the snow… bring your shovel over to my place, there’s three or four igloos on my street and I can’t figure out which igloo belongs to my car. 😀
