It appears Fall is around the corner with the temperatures starting to decline, Eat Sheep out in the wild, and the leaves beginning to turning colors any day now. I wanted to take a day to remember the Summer projects, hot days, arms sticking to my desk and some great posts here on Blender Cookie.
Below is some education which was rocking over the summer just in case you missed them!
