I am moving some of the items at the sidebar on the right to this post, to get rid of some of the clutter at the sidebar.
In a few days, this post will be buried, but a link at the sidebar will capture it. The dates may refer to the initial blog entry; the date the deal was announced; the date the deal was closed; all dates are approximate and somewhat arbitrary in some cases. Everything prior to 2015 was previously linked at the sidebar at the right. Current year deals are at the sidebar. Miscellaneous current year deals not at the sidebar may be captured below.
