Weekend Open Thread and Links

Hi! Thank you so much for the letters you’ve sent in response to my post yesterday, and for your donations to the DW drive for Black Voters Matter. There’s still time to contribute if you’d like to and haven’t yet. I’ll be making the donation, which my ad network will match, on Monday so you have until 5 EST Monday to PayPal a donation to me to include at We’re up to $400 and I’d love to make it an even $500 (for a total of $1000, when matched).

This weekend is Father’s Day, so I hope all you dads, including my husband and my own father, have a great day and feel the love. We’re headed to Drew’s brother’s place for the weekend – our first time away from Brooklyn in months – and the kids are super excited to spend time with their cousins (and their dog!).

Today is Juneteenth, the day we celebrate the end of slavery in the U.S. Here’s more about that, as well as some other links that might interest you:
