Yesterday I declared I was on strike until the heat lifted, well things are getting better. The oppressive heat is actually dissipating and it looks like we are coming out the other side of this thing. So instead of striking today I’m taking a little virtual vacation, to Hawaii. Sometimes I feel like I am the only person who hasn’t been to Hawaii…everyone I know has been and comes back with reports of spectacular foliage, amazing flowers and towering palms. My friend Andrea was there earlier this month and took some fabulous pictures - enjoy!
