And finally the weekend is here! Oh, yes. I don’t usually work on Friday except for off-site clients. So my weekend begins in 45 minutes. What are my plans for this illustrious Labor Day? NO LABOR.

The cows here aren’t mad, I hope. And who knows? We won’t for about 40 years, so why not eat up. Here’s some fairly rare meat I had for lunch the other day. It was delightful. More to come…
