After a really, really long hiatus Linked Up is back with an assortment of stories. As a means of introduction here is a little insight into how this process works. Every time I see a story that I think should be included in an edition of Linked Up, I add it to my bookmarks. When circumstances prevent a new edition of Linked Up for many months, the stories become a little less timely. Even so, good stories deserved to be shared so if some of these stories seem a little old, you now know why. Hope you enjoy all of these stories while you take a break from digging out of the snow.
