Drop It Like It’s Hot

Thanks everyone for another great week of conversation.    We seem to have an uptick in trolls this week.  I can tell you that I had to ban more than the usual amount.  It must mean that the conversations here are challenging to some.

In honour of Canada Day and Independence Day we will be doing a show on patriotism on Sunday at 8pm est.  Our guest will be Matt of the award winning Bastard Logic.  You can access the show through Blogtalk Radio

imageBelow you will find links to some great posts I came across this week.  Please show these bloggers some love and check them out.  When you are through don’t forget to drop it like it’s hot and leave your link behind in the comment section.
