You're the Best Around!

Nothing's gonna ever keep you down!

Probably not the best way to start the 2nd edition of The Best of the 'Betes Blogs but I am big fan of 80's movie references. And they really don't get much better than The Karate Kid.

In case you don't know what The Best of the 'Betes Blogs is all about, it is a project that Sara and I put together to try and highlight blog posts we might all be missing. The DOC has grown so much that often great posts get overlooked and this way, we hope that we can help get more great posts read, introduce us all to new bloggers, and bring the community even closer together. So without further ado, here are the winners of The Best of the July 'Betes Blogs.
