The dog days are upon us, and soon it will be time for back-to-school shopping. But there is still time for a few more weekends of summer fun. For starters how about learning about the history of the very first airplane flight, which took place right here in Connecticut (no matter what North Carolina says). For more down-to-earth fun, learn about the role pirates played in Colonial trade. And after you've worked up an appetite, refuel with pizza, porchetta, sausages, pastries, and gelato at the 50th Annual Italian Festival. As always, in the event of rain, be sure to check that your intended activity is still on before jumping into the car.
