The Week in Review - Autumn Is Near

Good morning from Woodstock, Maine where this week we went from blazing heat and high humidity to crisp, cool fall weather. For so many reasons this is my favorite time of the year. Not the least of which is that I love walking in the woods with my dogs and seeing the bright colors of the changing leaves. In fact, that's what we're going to do as soon as I complete writing the list of this week's most popular posts. As always, I hope you have a great weekend and take some time to get outside away from a computer.
