Happy Monday! And hello again Cube Farm: Please be pleasant this week; I promise I will try to stay calm and blog on.

I hope you enjoyed the weekend. Fall turned up nicely in
Virginia (hooray that Mr.
Weatherman was wrong about the rain!) and Oktoberfest started worldwide. For
those who celebrated: cheers! And for those who still want to: you have until
Oct. 7 before this festival ends! If you’d rather celebrate in the most
authentic way, grab a plane ticket and a friend, and head out to the birthplace
of Oktoberfest: Munich, Germany. You’ve
already missed the traditional tapping of the keg by the mayor to open
Oktoberfest, but you still have time to get into the festivities. If you go, expect
a carnival atmosphere with lots of beer, food, music, and dancing! (Share your
stories if you have been!)

And if you want something to celebrate today: it's Cherries Jubilee Day! If you can’t get your hands on some cherries jubilee ice cream, try making an adult version of the real stuff:
- can of cherry pie filling
- cognac (or brandy)
- vanilla ice cream
Mmm, that’s a great way to start a Monday!
