Flying Time

A third of the year has passed, officially, today. I'm always amazed at the speed with which time flies.

Speaking of time flying, yesterday my wife and I celebrated our 40th anniversary. My life has been built largely around this woman who completes me, and it has been a wonderful and wondrous journey we have shared together.

I hope you are enjoying your weekend and that you enjoy the tips in this week's newsletter.
