gmtPlus9

3 Apr

A few years ago one of my favorite proto-weblogs was gmtPlus9 (internet archive).  I mentioned it to Claire a couple of days ago and wondered what had become of it.  Amazingly she happened to see it on the blogroll of art for housewives the day after, at it's new home.   I love it when that happens!
