The aggressive, outrageous, infuriating (and ingenious) rise of BrewDog | Jon Henley "The long read: Once known more for its stunts than its beers, the ‘punk’ Scottish brewer is now the UK’s fastest-growing drinks company.

A 224 word palindrome: "Dammit I’m Mad" by Demetri Martin Dammit I’m mad. Evil is a deed as I live. God, am I reviled? I rise, my bed on a sun, I melt. To be not one man emanating is sad. I piss. Alas, it is so late. Who stops to help? Man, it is hot. I’m in it. I tell. I am not a devil. I level “Mad Dog”. Ah, say burning is, as a deified gulp, In my halo of a mired rum tin. I erase many men. Oh, to be man, a sin. Is evil in a clam? In a trap? No. It is open. On it I was stuck. Rats peed on hope. Elsewhere dips a web. Be still if I fill its ebb. Ew, a spider… eh? We sleep. Oh no! Deep, stark cuts saw it in one position. Part animal, can I live? Sin is a name. Both, one… my names are in it. Murder? I’m a fool. A hymn I plug, deified as a sign in ruby ash, A Goddam level I lived at. On mail let it in. I’m it. Oh, sit in ample hot spots. Oh wet! A loss it is alas (sip). I’d assign it a name. Name not one bottle minus an ode by me: “Sir, I deliver. I’m a dog” Evil is a deed as I live. Dammit I’m mad.

9 Learnings from 9 Years of Brain Pickings "Reflections on the rewards of seeking out what magnifies your spirit." (by Maria Popova) https://www.brainpickings.org/2015/10/23/nine-years-of-brain-pickings/
Be generous. Be generous with your time and your resources and with giving credit and, especially, with your words. It’s so much easier to be a critic than a celebrator. Always remember there is a human being on the other end of every exchange and behind every cultural artifact being critiqued. To understand and be understood, those are among life’s greatest gifts, and every interaction is an opportunity to exchange them.· SonofGroucho
Any bloggers here? Thinking of blogging again and looking at Wordpress.org. Looks quite complex.
I've been horribly lax, but I run WordPress on both of my sites. I haven't used Wordpress.org, but I think their set of JetPack tools looks pretty powerful for being free.· Jenny H.
Thanks for all the input. I'll need to research things a bit further. Found this useful: http://www.dearblogger.org/blogger-or-wordpress-better· SonofGroucho
