I'd also like to thank these other folks for bidding on this week's rental:
Advertising for Success, whose CyberCelt has been a renter here previously for another of her blogs.
Full Metal Photographer, who has been seeing some fungi lately.
About Simple Ways, authored by Winsome Gunning, who has also been a renter here before, for one of her other blogs.
Butch of 123beta let us know about Talk Like a Pirate Day.
Bernie Planck devoted space at Planck's Constant to the well-formed buttocks of Islamic extremists.
