Summer Solstice !

Today we reach peak daytime sunlight, the summer solstice!  As the light lasts longer and day adventures are in order, chances are you'll be biking or driving with the windows down to catch a nice summer breeze.  Chuck on our first play-list and listen to songs that frequent the speakers in the diner.  FYI, the lead off song was written and sung by one of our neighbors and everyday coffee regulars.
