I love autumn! The past 2 days have actually been chilly enough for me to 1) have a nice cup of tea in the morning instead of an iced coffee (apparently iced coffee all the time is a very New England thing), 2) put on warm, fuzzy socks and 3) wear a jacket on my way to work.

Speaking of different areas, I've been noticing some interesting visits to my blog lately. I had my first and only visitor from the Isle of Man today. I would love to hear from anyone who visits. Please feel free to comment or send me a message. I'm always interested to read how people got here.
