Even after the week just past, I enjoy this new ritual--cup of tea, and the Weekend Round-up. Great job as usual!

Elusive D, thanks for the comment. I'm glad you like this little feature. I'll monitor my traffic closely. The first few installments haven't been well read. But I'll keep an eye on it. Hopefully traffic will pick up on this particular story type.

Yep. It's more than a rehash of my own stories. It's all the news that I found worthy of reading or viewing during the past week.
