Weekends are special at This Just In...

We are always gathering in new readers (Thank you!) so I want to provide some details about popular weekend features on This Just In…

It all begins on Friday night, around sunset with our weekly Goodnight musical entry. Following a long, tough, hard week, we like to smooth our way into Saturday and Sunday with lighter music to enjoy, as well as interesting background and bio material about the performers and their work. You, of course, can read/listen whenever you choose. The best way to take in the Friday night blog is on Friday night, when skies are dark, the perfect time to unwind before calling it an evening.

When you wake up Saturday, check out a week’s worth of the best political cartoons.

That’s followed by The Barking Lot, collaboration between my wife and me that began when Jennifer, who loves dogs more than me, suggested I do a blog about dogs. I replied she should do it because of her passion. We decided to do it together. It’s quite a combo every week: a dog-walking weather forecast, my wife’s dog blog, dogs in the news, dog photo of the week, and dog video of the week.

Week-ends is our weekly week in review highlighted by our HEROES and VILLAINS and much more.

On Sunday, it’s Photos of the Week that I started after I posted a series of pictures about the Midwest floods of June 2008, my most popular blog ever.

Recommended Reading: Columns and pieces I found interesting the past week. On occasion, I even toss in one written by a liberal.

Sunday night, Culinary no-no. The first installment came on Father’s Day in 2007 about a friendly disagreement I had with Jennifer about brats. It was meant to be like a summer network TV show that would be a fill-in that disappeared in the fall. But to my complete surprise, the concept took off.

Weekends are prime time for everyone. And the time goes much too fast. I appreciate you spending some of it here.
