If you haven't tired yet of learning about our cruise travels last month, I'd like to tell you about our castle tour. Unlike the Americas, Europe has a long history of kings and queens. For more than a thousand years, Europe was ruled by monarchs and feudal lords. Castle building was a huge part of the lives of the citizenry and there are countless examples of castles from every period in European history.

As you may know from my last blog post, we just returned from a cruise up the Atlantic Coast of Europe. I wanted to tell you about a place that really surprised us in Spain. On the northern coast of Spain is a city called Bilbao. It has industrial origins and a port on the Atlantic and one can see where it was an exciting seaport for hundreds of years.

In August we were fortunate enough to be able to travel to Europe on a cruise. Our cruise started in Lisbon, went north from there and made a half dozen stops in Spain, France and England. It was a part of the world I had never seen, but had read about.

As you know, a fair amount of my friends are in to scrapbooking. I am constantly amazed at how creative they can be with paper, scissors and a printer. I wish that I had the creative genes that they have; I would struggle less on holidays!

Because this is a calendar blog, I thought it would be helpful to point out a few things from time to time that might come in handy. This post is about 16 month calendars.

There is a special category on our site that I would like to draw your attention to. I may be jumping the gun on this one, but there are dozens of advent calendars that you might want to take a look at.

Today is Labor Day which means a day off for most, the last day before school starts for some, and the closing bookend to the summer season for the rest of us. There is a finality about the day...because what comes next is the whirlwind time of year. School, holidays, leaves falling, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's; it seems to build in intensity each day like a snowball rolling down a hill.
