Hi there,
 It’s August and Summer is winding down, you need to be outside the casa, while the summer sun beams from high in the sky for longer days and warmer nights.

Do Not miss out on Participation in some great Summer Events. Here’s a list of some of the fun, wacky, or offbeat, holidays and themes for the month of August. Recognizing ‘theme’ days is a simple way to bring fun and interest into your Life. Some folks create habits, rituals and traditions to help strengthen their cultural lifestyle. If Nothing Else, it will give You some great Conversation Starters.
After Perusing the August Calendar. Check out Current or Pass Blogs pages by navigating the tabs at the top of each page.  The Blog designs are for You, find items that light up your Perspective, or as I was told by Terry “It’s the pictures, I go through the site to enjoy of the pictures.” Whatever the reason go for it.

This August, slowdown and ponder the words of Kent Nerburn when he said: “Remember to be gentle with yourself and others. We are all children of chance and none can say why some fields will blossom while others lay brown beneath the August sun.”
