Smorgasbord Weekly Round Up – Elephants and Whales, Blogging Watering Hole, Music and Funnies

Welcome to the weekly round up and a huge thank you for your visits. For many the weather is dire at the moment and I hope that you get some respite from the cold in North America soon and if you live in Southern Africa that your drought breaks in the near future.

The world in general is in back biting mode with political in-fighting and cabinet re-shuffles. Health services are in crisis due to poor managment and the current flu season and the headlines are their usual doom and gloom. As you look at the headlines it is clear that the only way to get your 15 minutes of fame is to do something anti-social.

Thankfully here in blog world there are plenty of writers who share the other side of humanity which is positive, socially minded, caring and honest.

Thank you to those who have contributed this week and I am so grateful for the time and effort that goes into providing posts, sharing on social media and responding to comments.

We begin a new music series next week The William Price King Music Column… and the artist kicking off the new year is Bono.. more about that on Wednesday.

In the meantime… here are the posts from this week.

Writer in Residence Paul Andruss

This week Paul explores the near miss for the elephant who almost became a whale in terms of evolution.

As the flu reaches epidemic levels in France and has created hotspots in the UK and Ireland it is important to take responsibility for preventing infecting others and also taking measures to protect yourself.
