This has been a busy summer in The Scholarly Kitchen, despite, or perhaps because of, all the ongoing disruption to our daily lives and work schedules. We usually take a week off around the beginning of July, but it’s taken us until now to catch up with so much that’s happening. I want to urge each of you to spend some time outside (in a safe, mask-wearing, and socially-distanced manner) and enjoy the weather while you can before we face a winter where such easy escape from the monotony of isolation and likely lockdowns must be endured. To put you in the mood, a chestnut from a long time ago that remains as gorgeous as the day it was written, Chad & Jeremy’s “A Summer Song” (live, or at least lip-synched, on American Bandstand no less).
See you in a week or so.
