It’s the end of another week and I’m still waiting for summer to arrive. That’s right, it’s 58F and raining so I’m indoors working on my blog instead of outside playing in the garden.

Russian Spies were caught this week and this didn’t tip off Allissa at Writing a Blue Streak that I wanted to steal her best ideas. But I felt so guilty for trying to spy on her that I’m going to tell you to go read her post. You gotta steal from the best, ya know. How to keep in touch with your clients and a bonus safety tip. Plus I asked for the article, so I can’t hog all the goodness for myself.
