Another week, another round-up…
This is going to show you just how uncool I was as a kid (I was a kid! Blame my parents!), but when I wake up to a gorgeous Sunday, the old Daniel Boone song “Beautiful Sunday” invariably pops into my head. I find myself humming and bopping along to it (“hey, hey, hey, it’s a beautiful day”).
And then we have Monday.
On to today’s roundup… and today we’re talking Facebook. Not because it drives Howie Goldfarb crazy, but because hate it, like it, love it, want more of it … or not, you gotta get your head around it.
