I feel like the summer is flying by! How can it be the second half of the month of July? Isn’t it still June? What is happening? Please tell me that I’m not the only one feeling this way. Anyway, let’s take a look at Duran history during this week. Did it capture the summer feel or not?

Once upon a time, there were two Duran Duran fans. One named Amanda, the other named Rhonda. Over many vodka tonics, they would laugh about the idea of one day writing a book about their fan experiences. While that manuscript is still being composed...Rhonda thought they should write a blog. (What was she THINKING?!) Lo and behold: The Daily Duranie was born.
