Five Star Friday's Edition #59

I have no fancy quotations about writing with which to start off this week's Five Star Friday roundup of good weblog posts, just a note of appreciation.

I don't know if it's the nice weather or my becoming a more positive person or the lack of oxygen to my brain following my workout with a Jillian Michaels DVD, but spending this morning reading through all of this week's submissions just made me feel so pleased. To everyone who takes the time to write excellent weblog content and everyone who takes the time to let us all know about it, THANK YOU.

Now go read these posts, comment to let the authors know they rock, and then take your weekend by storm!
