Whether you mark Memorial Day weekend as the official beginning of summer (beaches open!) or whether you chastely wait until June 29 (pools open!), now is the time to get your seasonal affairs in order. What's your song of the summer? Drink of the summer? What is to be made of concerning forecasts of a "barefoot-boy summer"?
