COVER STORY: Summer Fridays: Getting the weekend off to a flying start | Watch Video
Two years ago, about 20 percent of companies offered their staff Summer Fridays, where employees would work a little later on Monday through Thursday before taking a three-day weekend. Now, more than 40 percent of companies offer this summer perk. And it's not just out of the goodness of their hearts - companies find that the gift of time and an improved work/life balance builds loyalty and makes employees more committed to their organization.

SUNDAY GETAWAY: Out of the ashes: Dick Cavett on rebuilding his Montauk mansion | Watch Video
The historic oceanfront getaway in Montauk, Long Island, was one of the Hamptons' "Seven Sisters," a group of country homes designed back in the 1880s by none other than architect Stanford White. Purchased in the 1960s by comedy writer and talk show host Dick Cavett, the house had a sparkling history, until 1997, when it was destroyed by a fire. Like a phoenix, the house has arisen again, completely rebuilt by Cavett. And now his treasure is for sale. Lee Cowan reports.

A TASTE OF SUMMER:
 Everything's coming up rosé | Watch Video
Hard to believe that not long ago rosé wine had a reputation as lightweight as its color. Yet the wine has a surprisingly rich history as the favorite of kings, tsars and popes.

Mo Rocca checks out the pink stuff at the nation's only vineyard dedicated exclusively to rosé; talks with Katherine Cole, author of "Rosé All Day: The Essential Guide to Your New Favorite Wine"; and meets the founders of White Girl Rosé and its sister wine, Babe, which comes in a can.

SUMMER HEAT:
The art of Japanese fans (Video)
On a sweltering summer afternoon, Japanese beat the heat the way their ancestors have done for centuries: head for the waterfront for some cooling breezes, put on a casual yukata kimono, and pack their hand fans. While flat, round fans, or uchiwa, originated in China, Japanese are credited with inventing folding fans over 1,000 years ago. Known here as ogi, folding fans come in a staggering variety of sizes, uses and styles, making for a cool fashion statement. Lucy Craft reports.
