Many thanks for the recommendation, LD. I always enjoy your posts as well.
Lorne, you're welcome. I have learned a lot from your blog and Mound's blog.
I endorse you selections and would perhaps add Northern Reflections (http://nor-re.blogspot.ca/). At this point we are all struggling to remain sane and reasonable under pressure from the manure that is piling up around us!
I really like your blog LD. Democracy Under Fire is also an excellent blog.
Rural and Pamela, thank you for your comments. The blogs you suggest do sound great and worth checking out and I do recommend them to readers of my blog.
