"The time has come," the Walrus said,
To talk of many things:
Of shoes -- and ships -- and sealing wax --
Of cabbages and kings --
And why the sea is boiling hot --
And whether pigs have wings."
-Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking Glass

A few weeks ago, Eric Turner, of Secondhand Thoughts, did me the very great honor of recognizing my blog as one of his Wednesday Websites. I apologize for not responding earlier; the idea that people read and appreciate my writing is very empowering.
Eric is a "40 year old retired soldier, full-time student, future history teacher, father of four, and husband of one" - obviously a very busy man, yet he makes the time to recognize the efforts of fellow bloggers. He also encourages his subscribers to visit and comment on the Wednesday Websites, a generous gesture and one that models good cyber manners.
So I'm happy to return the favor: please visit Secondhand Thoughts and give Eric a listen. He is a thoughtful and articulate man and deserving of your attention.
*How could I have forgotten to mention the fact that Eric uses Dewey numbers on his blog!
