Looks like there's a lot of helpful blogs this week that I need to check out. I am so behind in movies - I haven't seen any of those!

Ooh, ouch. Terminator was next on my list to go see.

Thanks for all the great links. You're like a scout leading the way.

There were a lot of things I left out, too! I love finding all these little tidbits throughout the week.

And I don't want to scare anyone from seeing Terminator, but I am such a HUGE fan of the first three movies, to the point I could recite the original, the fourth just really seemed so lacking. Great action, no feeling - I did not connect with the characters and there were some inconsistencies.

Thank for including my guest blog spot on Marv Wilson's blog in your always pithy carnival of great tips, Diane. I hope others consider the frugal tradeshow route for their book launches.

Best,
Carolyn
