Things have been a bit lax around here at PPP as we're all on holidays and spending time with family and friends. I just noticed that there wasn't any FTB put up until just now, so I've piled together a few links. It's not your usual big breakfast of links, but it's not quite lunch, and you get a slice of cantaloupe at the end. Still, a good meal.

If you've got any more links, feel free to throw them in the comments.
