We're glad to be heading back to the ranch after 12 days on the road. The Seattle office has been great, as usual, but there's no place like home!

In addition to a 7-hour travel odyssey, here's what we've got on tap this week:

Carolyn is writing about live entertainment options and business support organizations for the Carrboro Resource & Visitors' Guide. I'm working on a short piece about buying local and another on co-working/coop office space.

Steve is crafting another blog post for the National Journal and working on his monthly op-ed for the Carrboro Citizen.

I've got two articles underway for Hanley Wood. For Architect, I'm looking for great architectural projects (since 2007) in Waterbury, CT., including stimulus-related projects. I'm also seeking developers who're doing projects using the "community beyond housing" concept for a Developer article. PR people: Hit me up!

I'm wrapping up two pieces for the International Cinematographers Guild: a feature on "Blind Side" and a production diary for "The September Issue".

I'm researching. three careers articles for Monster.com. PR folks: if you've got an expert on interviewing, or an HR manager at a medium-to-large company, contact me!

Gotta run. Have a great week!
