Stuff-n-Things Thursday is here a day early, and although there are a few things I had to show you this week they are on hold until next week due to SOPA. As I 'live' online these days I feel that I have a bit of a responsibility to at least tip my hat to the worldwide internet protest happening right now.

Things and stuff and more things…Saturday
Things and stuff and more things Thursday is being brought to you this week by Saturday. Thursday was busy with Stove-top Mac-n-Cheese. It happens.
