Welcome to another edition of the TD:D Blog Carnival!

Update from last Blog Carnival: I got my two article submitted and they are under review!  Also, just got another round of snow today.  I wish it was an April Fool’s joke, but alas, there were at least two inches outside this morning.  I’m hoping for a sunny weekend!

Enjoy this week’s posts and make sure to check back soon for another edition.
