Welcome to this week’s TCC Field Intelligence Report, v.9.1, your source for the Good, True, Beautiful, and sometimes Weird. Slightly amusing, even. No politics, no bad news, no Comey memos, no Romphims. Just ten articles and posts to enlighten and entertain, to inform and inspire.
Kick back, grab your tea or coffee (or adult beverage – it’s after 5:00 PM somewhere!), and see what you might have missed the past week or so. And share with your friends! They need good news too!
