The Week in Review

Good evening and Happy New Year from Maine. I’m celebrating the New Year by taking some cold medicine and going to bed early. I took some time off this week and immediately caught a miserable. cold. So miserable that I didn’t even go skiing after we had a massive 22″ snowfall on Thursday night. Hopefully, you have had a better holiday vacation week than I did.
