Good morning from Maine where we’re having another overcast morning. For the last month we’ve been stuck in a pattern of having rain for at least part of every day. Fortunately, there have been enough breaks to get outside to ride my bike alone and with my kids. We’re hoping that happens again today and tomorrow. I hope that wherever you are, you get to do something fun this weekend too. 

This week I worked on developing materials for a new online course, 25 Search Strategies You Need to Know. The course begins July 1st. Learn more about it right here
