Five Star Friday's Edition #71

Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it; boldness has genius, power and magic in it.

   — Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


Is it just me, or does it seem like the further we get into autumn, the closer these Fridays seem to be getting to each other? We are on a speed train to winter people! No matter. As long as you people are filling up the weeks with all this excellent weblog reading, it is time well spent.

Remember to leave your mark in the comments on the following posts to let the authors know that you came, read, and enjoyed their work. Comments are love!

Also, LEAVE A URL TO ONE OF YOUR OWN ENTRIES IN THE COMMENTS SECTION HERE. I know it looks like I'm yelling, but really I'm just emphasizing. I like brazen self-promotion. Plus, are 25 blog entries enough to tide us over the weekend? I don't think so. So, pick a post and share it!

Happy Friday!
