How do I know it's summer? I hear bees and see flowers blooming; I'm working out because that beach vacation is looming. I watch baby birds as they learn to fly; I welcome new beginnings into my life. And yes, I write terrible jingles that barely rhyme.

The party parade of 2008 seems to have a much mellower mood than recent years, most likely due to the trying times we're facing.
