The Actuator – April 15th

I hope everyone was able to enjoy this past holiday weekend. We had decent enough weather here, allowing us to set up an egg hunt for the kids on Sunday afternoon. I also kept our annual tradition of burning the Christmas tree on Easter. In related news, the fire circle is officially open for the season.

As always, here's a bunch of links I hope you find useful. Enjoy!
