Newsbits: Jump to These for Infotainment

(1/15/2016)

Expensive to recover a sunken snowmobile.

One of my New Year's resolutions for this site is to reprise the semi-regular sharing of interesting news links that come across my desk via the inter-webz.

Some are informative, some are wonky, some are entertaining.

Infowonkiness? Enterformative? Wonkytainment!

Thinking about producing a slick edit of a crazy waterskip? Consider THE COST OF SLED RESCUE in case of failure.

Whew! Just in the nick of time: a crucial snowmobile trail reroute to prevent BLOWING THE LID OFF OF A MASSIVE LANDFILL!
