  1. Thanks, John! Seems like I might be getting to the bottom of what’s been depleting my energy of late (even as it gets to the bottom of my savings). This manages, I believe, to be the most populated list so far…the first of 2016 will tend to be a bit thinner.

    • I noticed when I was copying’n’pasting that there’s a couple of classic-type movie blogs that I habituate that don’t feature. I’ll try to remember next week, when hopefully things will be a bit less hectic, to go through with a bit more rigor and pass along any that I think might interest you.
