Hooray, it’s summertime! According to tradition, Memorial
Day, in addition to honoring those who have died in the service of our country,
informally marks the first day of summer. Etiquette guides of old
suggest that white shoes may only be worn between Memorial Day and Labor Day…

As we gather together to remember those we know who have
served, it sure can get hot and sticky. In Portland, except for a token spring
day or two, nice weather rarely arrives until July 5th. But in other parts of the
country, summer weather started months ago.
Time to consider a ceiling fan. No, not one of the dusty

contemplate luxuries… like ceiling fans.
Until next time!
