Bemus Point, New York

Tonight I head to Lake Chautauqua, a fabulous resort lake in western New York. I've spent time there for 26 straight summers, and this year I plan to do plenty of fishing, reading, boating and hanging with my family, which convenes there every year. We're expecting relatives from three countries, two continents and a host of states.

After that, I'll be heading to Saybrook, Ohio, to chill with my parents and sister, who'll be holed up in a small cottage on Lake Erie.

I'll be out of the office this week, but my awesome co-workers will be updating my blog daily with new songs and funny videos -- or else! See you when I get back.
