As spring slowly approaches and you spend less time sitting at your computer browsing internet oddities in favor of the outdoors, don't slack on sending in links! Findings, pictures, blogs and whatnot can all be directed to: FlossyLinks@gmail.com, or find me on twitter (FlossyAlli). Have a great week!
