If you don't subscribe to anything else, you must subscribe to Barb Cooper's blog. She will make you laugh, cry, side with her, think about things you wouldn't dream about thinking and much, much more.
The one entry that really got me was "Socks and Life Lessons".
I don't have time to read books (stories) unless they are about knitting, however ~ I have time for her writings. I wish I could write like her so I could really say something that would perk your interest so you WOULD subscribe. She's fantastic.
Oh, did I mention she also knits?
