Mike's Blog Round Up
Happy New Year from Mike's Blog Round Up!
January 1, 2017

Happy New Year, Crooks and Liars! We've gone from Festivus, Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanza all the way to welcoming Baby New Year 2017 - what a week! We've said goodby to iconic performers and role models, and we've seen the perfidy of Trump up close (and always personal). I want to conclude this week with posts from some of the other chaps and chapettes who often sit in the morning round-up chair as a fitting way to kick-off Mike's Blog Round-Up for 2017.

Infidel 753 makes some predictions, well, probabilities for 2017.

Stinque reminds us that comedy is hard.

Bluegal gives us the last Professional Left Podcast of 2016 (and it's a good one!)

Bonus Track: Because sometimes we need to feed our souls, Garden Collage tells us the story behind Andy Warhol's Flowers.

Thank-you, Crooks and Liars, for letting me be a part of your day. It is a true honor.
