It’s the Weekend!

It's Hurricane Irene...stock up on cookies!

There’s only two weekends left this summer season, so you’re not gonna let a little hurricane keep you from going out and having fun, are you? Get out there and soak up some weekend summer fun even if you have to slip on the hip boots. But first, we’d like to send out a great big thank-you to everyone who dropped by this week to add encouragement, support and, yes, criticism, too. And thanks for helping to spread the word about
