We’re experiencing a glorious August these days in northern California, and although the days aren’t quite as long as they were earlier in the summer, we want them to last as long as possible. Although some blogs are on vacation, there’s still plenty of great writing to choose from if you want to keep your head in the game, or if you just need a diversion before heading back to the beach. Enjoy.
