Happy summer to those of us here in the northern hemisphere, as today is the
solstice. So today I am officially Summertime Blue. Likewise, happy winter to all of you below the equator. It's been
seasonally warm around here lately, but we were quite lucky in avoiding the
nasty heat wave that recently covered a lot of the country. Here's hoping we can
avoid too many of those so we can enjoy the warm weather rather than dread it.
