Crown Gems: Links and Ketchup

It has been almost two weeks since my Crown Gems post and I have accumulated a lot of links that I have been meaning to pass along during that time.  The purpose of this edition of Crown Gems is to clear the slate, so here are the links and nothing but the links.  I threw ketchup in the title both as a play on “catch up” and because I had some delicious chicken sausage and mixed vegetables for dinner tonight.  Hey, in my world it works on multiple levels.

To start off the links with a bang, check out this brilliant work of art crafted over at Royals Review
