Weekend Reading – Where is the sun edition

It has been stormy here in Vancouver the last few weeks. We encountered 3 major storms and as a result, faced a lot of rains and powerful gusts of wind. But when everything cleared, we saw fabulous sunsets and beautiful double rainbows. Looks like we will see more rains next week. Since I’m going on a business trip to San Francisco/San Jose for a few days, hopefully I will get a few days of sun next week.

Have you entered the Victory Lap Retirement book contest for your chance to win a copy of the book?
