Here is a weekly round-up of some of my favorite posts:

BIRTHDAY WISH
Happy Birthday to JLP's Dad

Forget the billboards, cards and balloons. Blogs can deliver great birthday wishes.

RENT CHECK

Check out the new apartment from Through a Glass Darkly, which is tastefully furnished and significantly cheaper than the couple's last apartment. I think they spotted it on Craigs List

The photos are great. I love the cat! cool apartment

Yay! Our new apartment is great. We moved close enough to Georgia Tech for my husband (a Ph.D. student) to walk to school, so we'll be saving even more money when we sell my car (losing my payment), get rid of my car insurance, and no longer pay Dan's parking permit.

Hey Sally:

That's so cool about your husband walking to school.

Walking is my favorite form of transportaion.
