Today is all about the clouds before the rain after a few days of warm fall weather. A rainy Saturday is actually not too bad this weekend, though, as I have a manuscript to review. Plus the college and pro footballers are at it and Formula 1 and the NASCAR are racing at night! Everything is lining up to spend a weekend in my comfy chair with a cup of coffee and something intriguing on my laptop screen.
