This is a curated list of articles, seeds, photo/video posts and comments for the past
weekcouple months. The series will combine the use of Newsvine's "thumbs up" as well as the minds of the Newsvine team and suggestions via email or support. As always, meta articles about the proper use of the site will be ignored for this feature.
It's time to catch up. This one will be long, but because Sally is back, I'm not completely overwhelmed. We both should be more proactive in our moderation, rather than purely reactive.

Gussie Fink-Nottle on "Five Reasons I Like Newsvine"
I've enjoyed being a very small part of NV over the years, I have been in dark places and it took this place full of words to let me find my voice again.
It has been a tonic, a cameltoe for my soul as it were,and as I don't let people get close to me often, (they usually make me regret it) I've loved a lot of people here, mostly women (most of my friends are women as I love pussy and unjustifiable behavior) but some fellas have been screamingly funny and have shown a rare insight, I love those too, not, you understand in a "Hey, let's get healthy together and take a refreshing sulfur bath with each other" love you, but more of a "Damn fella that's on the nosey" kinda way and I'm sure if some of you knew how much I loved you, you'd get the courts involved.
Sometimes, complete strangers will treat you as their own and people you know will someday treat you as strangers, but on the whole I feel the friends I have here have treated me fine and dandy, sometimes more so than the "fleshys" I see everyday.
My contributions here have been dwindling of late, my light is flickering and its getting tougher to drag up the energy but it's hard to let go of the things that make us feel safe...even if they aren't real, so I will comment when I can, it may not be every week but rest assured I will be reading. Lately people have been telling me to count my blessings, I just hope the Liquor Mart likes dimes and nickels.
