These are really the dog days of summer. It seems as if half of our staff and ¾ of our clients are on vacation. We always forecast a low July, and we were able to meet that. Or even end up lower that forecast! Man oh man.

I recently finished the book Theft by Peter Carey. It is set in Australia and New York City. It is a novel about the art community. What is good, how do agents and galleries work, who is hot, who is not. What gets stolen and why. Oh, it is also a love story. I have read several of Carey’s other books and was fond of them. Well, all except for Oscar and Lucinda. I could not abide that one.

If you like wine, here is a great v-blog worth spending some time with. Very fun.
