Blawg Review and other Carnival Rides

The first Pediatric Grand Rounds is up at Unintelligent Design.

I've not been linking to Blawg Review lately. Where is my loyalty? Sorry, Ed.

Last week, Prof. Maule of Mauled Again wrote a right-on description of The Mommy Blawg. Having hosted a Blawg Review, I know how hard it is to sift through all the entries, view all the blawgs, and make quick sense of them. Good job.

Blawg Review #54, on Brandy Karl's bk!, introduces my Placenta piece with this quote from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland:
Soon her eye fell on a little glass box that was lying under the table: she opened it, and found in it a very small cake, on which the words "EAT ME" were beautifully marked in currants. "Well, I'll eat it," said Alice, "and if it makes me grow larger, I can reach the key; and if it makes me grow smaller, I can creep under the door: so either way I'll get into the garden, and I don't care which happens!"
She writes, "More than you ever wanted to know about placentas and related curiosities from the Mommy Blawger, who explores the topic in near-excruciating (only so because of the topic) detail." You think that's excruciating? Just wait until my piece on umbillical cords. That will be excruciating.
