Are you familiar with this…?

It’s hard to believe November is already upon us. Autumn is harvest time in Italy — when sun-soaked grapes are picked at the vineyards. In the Italian countryside, you’ll see farmers gathering olives to make extra virgin oil. And, in Italy’s historic towns, the tourist crowds have begun to thin.

Maybe this isn’t the greatest story ever, but I am starting this week’s newsletter with a verse from the bible. WAIT! BEFORE YOU CLOSE THIS EMAIL…I realize that the LAST thing anyone wants to hear is a lecture on politics or religion during their hectic business day. Let me assure you, THIS is not about religion. And I… Read More »
