Here now, the blog posts I enjoyed most this week:

Ken Levine shares why clip shows — an episode of a TV series that features clips from past seasons — are such a pain in the neck for writers. Read Clip shows

Across Germany you’ll find butcher shops called Metzgerei, Schlachterei,
or Fleischerei, the last of those being fairly unique to Berlin. The wonderful Berlin Typography blog shares delightful Fleischerei signs from across that city. Read Fleischereien in Berlin

SilverFox tells the story, and shares photos, of the stunning post office in beautiful downtown Burbank, CA. Read Burbank Main Post Office

We still speak of actors and actresses, although the use of actress appears to be fading. But when it comes to nurses, when one is a man we feel compelled to always say male nurse. Why is that? Niall O’Donnell considers gendered titles in language. Read What’s the Word for a Male Nurse?

Taking photos of places I find along the side of the road as I do, the meditation Eric Swanger wrote about being a man with a camera in a remote place you don’t belong really connected with me. Read Unsailed and Shoreless

    I have say that I am starting to look forward to Saturday and a new “Recommended Reading” post. They are almost always stories I find entertaining, and a good change from the usual web dreck that one finds everywhere on the WWW. Thanks Jim.

    You know I have several cameras that look just like that Soligor TM only they are called Miranda TM. No surprise since Allied Impex owned both Miranda and Soligor. You were close with Miranda but this Soligor is a M42 mount and it is based on the Sensomat RE which I also have.

      Aha, I didn’t know they were owned by the same company! That explains it.
