Around the world in 51 blogs - the biggest edition ever 

That time of the week, again... Well, it's a lie - the round-up usually comes out on Sunday, but I've been pretty lazy about blogging today (I tip my proverbial hat to bloggers who can write several posts a day, rain, hail or storm - my blogligation hasn't progressed that far yet). By the way - as always - don't be shy if you have a post of your own that you think deserves a wider attention; just drop me an email and I'll see what I can do.
