Blame Seth D.
Gotta love the singers, eh? Big Bird and Kenickie, together at last.

I plan to do another Mother's Day picture post like last year -- pictures of moms who read LOTD, or moms of moms who read LOTD. Pics can be with kids, without kids, however you like.
If you'd like to be included, send me a pic and tell me how you want it labeled in the post (some use real names, others prefer online pseudonyms).
If you were in last year's post and want to reappear, you don't have to do anything: I'm reposting those pics. But, if you want to be removed or want to replace your photo, let me know.
A special report from Travel & Leisure magazine (full article here). Don't shoot the messenger. I'm just posting what they wrote.
We asked — and America has spoken.
In 2008, TravelAndLeisure.com and CNN Headline News polled travelers and residents on what they like (and don't like) about 25 top urban destinations in the U.S. Turns out that people have some pretty strong feelings about New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Miami, and other hot spots — we received nearly 60,000 responses.
