  • Ken Follett’s blog is a interesting mixture of work and philosophy, along with some deep musings about life. A interesting guy, a interesting read.
  • Joseph Hillenmeyer is writing a really fine blog about life, work, sites, plants, and observations about the profession we both share. The difference is his perspective is from the rolling hills of Louisville, KY. It’s nice work and worth a read.
  • Andrée-Anne Dupuis-Bourret is a Canadian who writes a blog in French called Le territoire des sens, The blogs only drawback is it’s in French. Me . . . I go looking for images and links to interesting sites. Her one blurb in English:  . . . I question the brief and complex relations between the human body and it’s immediate space . . .  It’s a interesting blog.
  • A blog called the Sippican Cottage is one of those blogs you read because, well . . . he’s a damn interesting writer. G can twist a phrase, un-dangle a participle(I still don’t know what a dangling participle is), and muse with the best of them.
