One morning last week it began drizzling at about 5 a.m.  It put me into a swoon.

Whilst you are playing with your Magic Bullet this weekend, ha ha, here’s a great addition to this week’s post on “The Body is not an Apology”  which resonated with so many Campers.  Thanks to Maia D. for sharing this commercial by Ogilvy.
