Here it is, another hot summer, at least in Las Vegas!! We are already seeing 100+ degree temperatures in mid-June, and it only looks to get hotter. I was lucky enough to be able to spend the entire month of March on vacation in England and Wales, driving all over and visiting many of the medieval churches and cathedrals that have been of interest to me since childhood. I thought that, since summer is vacation time for many of us, that I would list a number of vacation websites for those of you still looking for interesting and exciting places to visit on your vacation. Have fun, and don't get sunburned! (Websites listed were active and working as of 6/20/2002.)
