The Weekly Wrap at The Polar Zone, July 19, 2013 (Hungarian/U.S. News and Event.)
At the Zone (Blogger Office): It’s that time of the year again where I take my two-week vacation (15th-29th approx.) to recharge and relax a bit. In anticipation I’m trying to schedule as many posts as I can ahead of time, to cover my absence. Yes even us aspiring bloggers/writers have summer plans. Sadly this planning does not cover the “A Hungary Memoir,” which I do not write very much in advance so I can respond to comments, revise, etc.. Sorry! 😦
On a different note: I have added quite a few new links to the “Hungarian Links Page” They include more genealogy resources and various library and state archives; along with some maps.
Finally…..Please keep the Asiana Flight passengers in your thoughts, as they recover from the recent tragedies of the past week!!
