Doug announced some days back that he is guest-blogging over at tacitus. We were also invited to blog at a new outfit, Living in Europe. Since we're pressed for time at the moment, we'll probably start out by recycling posts from here over there but eventually we might just post about topics which don't quite fit here but would there (like, politics in Europe, etc.). In the course of this, I'm also updating our blog roll. [I was tempted to throw out everybody who is not linking back to us -- but alas, we're just a small blog and can't really afford vengenance. ;-)]. So, I've added Living in Europe, of course. It's a group blog, currently in Beta test mode, about -- the name says it all -- living in Europe. Check it out, you'll get a very good impression how diverse and wonderful this continent is. (Says the proud European.) Then, I started reading a German blog, Ostblog. If you understand German, it's an interesting blog about the former DDR and today East Germany. Very interesting and educating. I have thrown out the link to Instapundit. I linked to him because everybody does which is a bad reason to link to someone to begin with. I also do so not agree with his political views that I can't actually justify a link. (Why didn't I do this earlier? Oh, I'm a mother -- short memory deficiency, lack of time, short attention span, the works... ) Happy reading, everyone.
