Every Friday I point you towards some recommended reading around the blogosphere:

1. Where would we all be without The Onion? Here’s a marvellous send-up of anti-Obama fervor entitled 1 in 5 Americans Believe Obama is a Cactus.

2. And speaking of polls, I really enjoyed Clever Title TK’s twin lists of 10 of her Favorite Things along with 10 things she doesn’t like so much. (Totally down with you on the lemon desserts, sister. In fact, I think we should extend it to all fruit-based desserts.)

3. Madam Mayo linked to this incredible video of what San Francisco looked like in 1905 right before the earthquake. Wow!

4. In honor of the Jewish holiday, Sukkot, check out the 12 winners in the 2010 Sukkah City contest in New York City. Absolutely mind-blowingly amazing.

5. One of my first big breaks as a blogger was when I was featured on Barbara Swafford’s Blogging Without A Blog in her blog registry. Barbara brought me many new readers and since then has served as a constant and useful blogging tutor. If you’re new to blogging – or want to tool up on what’s going on in the trade – Barbara is a great teacher.

Have a great weekend!

    Thanks for the Friday Pix. I loved the Onion piece on Obama – 1 in 5 believe Obama is a cactus. Too funny!

    Love the ’05 SF video. Not crazy about the cheesy soundtrack, but the visual itself was sort of hypnotic.

    Thank you to the shout out to Barbara…it was truly a fun day around the blog world seeing everyone’s kind words about her “boosts up” in the blogging world…
    Now I need to click into you other suggestions!

    Leave the chocolate behind, give me a fine fruit dessert any day: crisps, cobblers, pies.

    Thanks for the reading – excellent as always. Loved Jen Mendelsohn’s blog, I’m with her on all the likes, but I’m a lemon lover…sorry!

    I can not eat chocolate and love fruit desserts…we just picked our Liberty apple tree and 2 pies are in the freezer, applesauce is ready for breakfast and tonight apple crisp…yum yum

    You may have to duke it out with a few others…
    I love lemon too…oh oh – I think I feel a polarity coming on!
