Another beautiful Sunday with a hint of cold but at least the sun is out (for now), so don’t stay indoors, you’re not that old! A little bit of fun is all you need: some laughter, music and theater will keep you warm indeed! Kick back and give this a read… maybe we’ll give you a reason to get out, enjoy life and give that fresh air outside a little breathe. (Yes, we’re in a poetic mood this morning – but promise no more rhymes after this!)
