Welcome to the March 26, 2009 edition of the Carnival of Cities, aka The Kidney Stone Edition (which explains why it didn’t go up yesterday as originally scheduled.  Ow.)

It’s fun to host the carnival, but the weekly frequency is becoming a burden, so I’m shifting to bi-weekly Wednesdays after this edition.  We’ll host next on the Family Travel Logue on April 8.

I welcome guest hosts at any time – it’s good for links, community and keeping the Carnival fresh. If you’re interested, please email me at sheila “at” sheilascarborough “dot” com.
