Greetings Manic Fans. Les here with the invaluable assistance of the OBotW Committee to bring you the Outstanding Blog of the Week for May 7-May 13. Some of you might’ve noticed that we’re falling behind on these....some of it’s technical...My computer is going through a freeze phase that’s lost this draft 3 times and I’ve had to start over....and over....and the other one is my time has been taxed by my real life job that’s decided to stop giving me 2 shifts a week and up it to 6....good for money...not so good on finishing computer projects on time, but I digress......
As always, you all did exceptional work and selecting winners was hard as hell....many Honorable mentions to list here.
