TPA Roundup With Link To Spring Breaker Jobsanger And An Oyster Shooters Picture

Here is the weekly Texas Progressive Alliance round-up. In addition to all these great bloggers, let me also add to a link to the great Amarillo blogger and TPA member Jobsanger. Ted, who writes Jobsanger, is not on the round-up this week because he was booking his spring break tickets.

Here is the link to Jobsanger. Ted’s blog is celebrating three years of operation and you should visit him and see what he has to say. 

Ted is a little older than many of the other spring breakers so he still thinks that Fort Lauderdale is the place to be. But look at the picture of Fort Lauderdale beach below. Not many people there.  Ted will have to drink his oyster shooters all by himself.

Below is a picture of some oyster shooters. Looks icky but Ted loves them.  

Here is the weekly round-up
