The summer of 2012 has been one to remember. Since Memorial Day most weekends have been dry with beautiful sun, blue sky and white clouds. Hiking, bicycling, fishing, beach & lake days and golf are all activities one can enjoy in New England. Nice weather allows us to participate in these activities. For us Red Sox baseball fans, the nice weather has not helped our beloved team on the diamond. As Red Sox fans know, there are good years and bad years. The latest trade was quite a blockbuster. Since it is late August, now we can focus on cheering for our New England Patriots.
