Not much for me to say this week except I think we are about to set the record for the hottest June in history and how about that USA soccer victory this week?
I have continued to be busy with my work projects. I have had some time to get to a few Phillies games this week – now 8-5 on the season.
Also was able to catch Phish and some James Taylor.
Enjoy your weekend - Mark
