Haveil Havalim #172: The Old Fogey Edition

It's been about a year and a half since I last hosted Haveil Havalim, and when I looked through the bloggers who sent in their posts, I noticed that there were a number of blogs I had not heard of before. Actually, it seems that alot of the blogs I am more familiar with don't seem to appear on HH anymore and as I looked through my blogroll, it seems that the reason is that they are not blogging anymore or just not regularly.

Be that as it may, alongside the whippersnappers who sent in their posts, I've added a heaping helping of "my crowd" as well.
