Weekend Mouse Twitchers

What has my reading eye been accosted by this weekend?

As usual, links do NOT equal endorsements or even views. 

Many

of my post links are from the USA. I find they are better at informing
me on so many subjects and are regularly ahead of the curve when it
comes to the particular topic of discussion.They frequently address a
subject that is highly relevant to the UK but has yet to be broached in
any meaningful form on this side of the Atlantic. The depth of the
articles
are also highly commendable.
