    Baby bathtime: Wherein 'adorbs' doesn't even come close

    Compassion trumps fluff plus GRAND Social No. 117 link party

    Compassion trumps fluff

    I originally planned to kick off today's post with some happy,fluffy stuff. For instance, pointing out that my return to publishing a Saturday Movie Review was quite well received, so much so that even Oprah read my thoughts on THE HUNDRED-FOOT JOURNEY... and tweeted to me after reading.
