Welcome to the “almost” final week of September!

John Wilson scores some big time points for his blitz of sunshine and temps in the  mid 20′s right into the weekend… summer returns for this first week of fall.  Love it. It’s been a big week for Waterloo’s BlackBerry – the Passport and its hip-to-be squareness has been rolled out. Oktoberfest is really just some
