A Compilation of Posts from May and June

I try to do this bi-monthly roundup around the first of the month but this one was delayed by my Alaskan expedition. Susanne Skinner and I covered a wide variety of topics over the last two months. I received a lot of feedback on the posts I wrote about my home town from the members of a Facebook group called Grew Up in Somerset. I hope some of those folks have stayed with me to read about other subjects.

The posts are sorted by category but many of them cross category boundaries so check them all out. If you missed any of our musings, here’s a collection of posts from the past two months organized by topic. The Next Phase blog is about things that interest us—and we’re interested in a lot of things—so pour a glass of wine, kick back and catch up with any of the posts you may have missed.

As always, thank you for reading The Next Phase.  I particularly appreciate your comments so don’t forget to add your own. Many people respond on Facebook, which is great but it’s easier for others to follow the comment trail is you use the blog’s comment section.

Happy reading!
