The Week at a Glance (3-15-2010)

Anything going on this week?

So I thought I might try and do a little synopsis of some stuff that is coming up this week, so that you could just take a peek and see if anything catches your eye.  I’ll see if I can keep this going every week.  If you have stuff that is going on, send it my way, and I’ll include it in the post.
