Did you know that August is the busiest month for travel and tourism? Makes sense to me because that's when we often will take our vacation. After summer sports, and before school starts again. This year we had to forego vacation as we have teenagers with jobs and it was too hard to coordinate everyone's schedules.
Summer television used to be reruns as most Americans spent more time outdoors during the summer. New programming was added to summer television in 1991 with 90210. Is this yet another indication that we have become less active as a whole?
You've heard that the first day of summer is often referred to as the Summer Solstice. But did you know that the word solstice comes from the two Latin words sol and sistere.

Here's a blurb:
When an unhappy youth leaves him damaged,
will Teddy Mckee be able to find love?
“Teddy Passmore McKee was born in Cork, Ireland, with a limp and a chip on his shoulder that threw his balance off all the more.” When he falls in love with the dark haired beauty born of an Irish father and a Spanish mother, will Gabrielle Quinn be able to restore his balance? And what about the charming Sean Hennessey? When Gabby catches his eye, too, will Teddy’s playboy best friend cause his own damage?
Fourteen years later, will Teddy and Gabrielle’s son be able to overcome the damage done to him in his childhood?
“Even through bloodshot eyes he could see she was different.” But can Michael leave behind the bottle, and his womanizing ways, to win over the lovely Tess Flanagan? Tess has sustained some damage of her own. Can she and Michael overcome the terrors of the past and learn how to love each other?
And if they do, will they be able to elude those after them who want to create their own damage?
On the run after an altercation leaves their boss in a pool of blood, will Michael and Tess be able to stay one step ahead of their pursuers? Or is it simply too late to correct the damage that has been done?
