I swear I looked at the calendar today and could not believe it is already the 25th of July. While we are still in the midst of summer, in a blink of an eye, August will be behind us, and we'll be heading smack dab into the beginning of fall.  No more messing around, this is the only Summer '14 we will ever have.  Time to enjoy, time to feed the soul, time to nourish the body with gifts from Mother Nature.  It is time to relax.
