“The time will come when Winter will ask you what you were doing all Summer.”
I took the extra hour I had today and made a list of a few key things I want to accomplish before the end of the year. Many of these I can use your help or feedback on, please feel free to contact me.

Warning Dates in Calendar Are Closer Than They Appear
There are slightly less than eight weeks left in 2010–given that Thanksgiving and Christmas take place in two of them it’s more like six work weeks–so it’s time for a kick finish if you need to catch up.
