Weekly Twitter Round Up

Another drama filled week in the Twitterverse that started with news of the killing of Osama Bin Laden Sunday, followed by a heated federal election here in Canada Monday, and then all of the ensuing discourse as a result of both events. Thankfully Mother's Day arrived just in time to lighten the mood. I hope you were all able to honour the special mothers in your lives and get a chance to connect in some way today. I am fortunate to have an amazing and very adventurous Mom who is currently completing an extended vacation with my Dad in the Eastern United States--Happy Mother's Day Mom! I also have several wonderful friends who make the job look easy. You know who you are and I salute you! As for me, I was delighted that the two fur babies in my life somehow figured out how to purchase my favourite chocolates as a Mother's Day surprise. Needless to say I was very touched. And so, as this lovely day comes to an end, check out some of my favourites from the past seven days:
