Leftovers - Your Best Blog Value!

As you can tell from the title [and our illustration], this is a posting of several small matters. Individually, you'd feel cheated; together, a potpourri of mediocrity! (By the bye, if you do a "Google Images" search of "leftovers", there are 240 thousand images to choose from! It seems more than any person could ever need, but who knows?)
- First of all, an update on Meagan, who was the subject of I wish I could say the news was more spectacular, some kind of rapid recovery, or something like that. No, the victories are small and slow. The best news of all is that she's continuing to recover. Thank you again for your prayers. Please continue to speak to whatever Higher Power you subscribe to...
- Map Widget Update: remember Well, I check on it periodically and, while North America is still home to a majority of our readers [or at least those who click through, picking up EntreCards], per capita, I seem to be drawing a crowd in Oceania! Oz and NZ rock!
- Today [depending, as always, where you stand vis a vie the International Date Line] is St. Patrick's Day. In honor of this fact, the "Video Of The Week" [below, in the right-hand column] is of course der Bingle (Surprise fact: the lyricist of "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling" [and more than a few other "Irish" songs] was Buffalo, NY native Chauncey Olcott, who produced several "Irish"-themed shows for Broadway in the late-19Th - early-20Th century). Enjoy, but please drink responsibly!
