Haveil Havalim #106- Terrible Twos Edition

I am pleased to present the 106th edition of Haveil Havalim. It is filled with all sorts of cool news and information you might need to know about. For example even if you missed the original Link To Jack Day you can still participate by promoting this edition of Haveil Havalim on your blog.

The last several editions have had various themes to them, quite clever if you ask me. They set a high standard for the rest of us to follow. Unfortunately I just can't come up with anything exceptionally clever. So I am going to the default theme called the Terrible Twos.

If you can bear with me a moment longer I'll provide more details. The Terrible Two edition was inspired by watching my daughter organize her toys. Things are kind of here and there, but don't argue with me because I will scream "I do it myself" at you. And with that we are off.
BTW, as the host I can share all sorts of stuff. If you missed the tales of Jack and Jameel's great adventures you can check them out by reading one of the following:
