Weekly Linkroll

It’s been a heck of a week here in New England. I teared up a little listening the Red Sox game yesterday when Neil Diamond made an impromptu appearance to sing along with himself in the seventh inning. A little odd, since the two Neils weren’t always in synch, but quite touching.

One good thing, though? The Winter of the Novel is finished! I handed off a printed manuscript to my alpha this week. Now, on to the next story.

Time for some links. I decided that all the links this week are going to be positive in some way. I think we all need that. (back to my usual cranky self next time)

Weekend Linkroll

As promised, here are this week’s links brought to you live from snowy southern Vermont, although not as snowy as more southern reaches of New England. Wishing everyone snowed in or without power quick and efficient snowplowing and utility repair. Ready for the ice tomorrow? Ick.

Mobile Telephone Telepathy Test
Rupert Sheldrake is looking for volunteers for his telepathy experiments. Yes, telepathy. There is a surprising amount of evidence for the existence of ESP, but you won’t hear that from the debunkers. And, really, if your “experts” on this subject are known anti-feminists Michael Schermer and Richard Dawkins, you might want to be a little more, you know, skeptical.
