I just received the eGrad newsletter, which began with this message from the dean of the graduate division:

Summer is the blessing of academic life. Those of you who soldiered in the regular workforce before returning to scholarly endeavor understand that well. Most of you will not spend the summer in travel or play. You will be working--in the library, lab, or perhaps at a café or in an office. But the rhythm will be different from the rest of the year. And there will be weekends, at least, in the sun. Enjoy the blessings of summer, and of course, wear sunscreen.

How very true.
