It's a beautiful day in this neighborhood, a beautiful day for a neighbor; would you be mine, could you be mine. - Mr. Rogers

This being our July issue, a few summer activities are starting to pop into my brain. Foremost among them would be the time honored summer activity of the neighborhood barbeque. So, why not invite some neighbors over and grill up some burgers and dogs. And if you need an extra for volleyball just drop me a line. I like my burgers medium-well, and I'll make my wife bring some chips and guacamole. Party on Garth.
