FRIDAY AT LAST! As a point of housekeeping, because Canada celebrates Thanksgiving on Monday (happy Thanksgiving, Canadians!) and many of us in the United States have Monday off for Columbus Day, Monday probably will be a light posting day unless a crazy amount of wacky stuff happens over the weekend that demands satisfaction. We’ll definitely be back, extra strength, on Tuesday. Happy weekend, everyone!
