Around the world in 39 blogs 

It's that time of the week to check what some blogospheric friends of Chrenk and others have been up to recently. The journey will be shorter than usual, as I'm sick this weekend. By the way, if you have a good post you'd like to share, please let me know in time for the next round-up.
