Which way is the wind blowing???

Mostly from the south with tons of moisture to add to the 90+ temps.....

Oh well, La in the summer.

Water should always be taken with other nutients, like dinner and supper.

Things melt in the heat. Health, Ice Cream, plastics, plastique??

It's amazing that people so soon forget the basics of life. The human body, while capable of surviving extensive changes in temperature and humidity, it is not meant to be exposed to those changes every day. And believe me, the older you get, the more you feel it.

You can beat the heat that is now, but will you beat the heat that is to come??

Hot Hot Hot

No, I don't mean disco (nor would I ever mean disco a' la 70's)

Heat indicies are a fallacy much the dame as chill factor. there is only one dividing line. 60 degrees. below that it goes from cool to cold to ouch above it goes from ok to warm to hot to ouch also. If you get confused with it, stick your hand outside and feel the air. (If it comes back in wet that means it is raining, or as often happend here and in FLA a cloud has crash landed)

This kind of weather is the kind that makes people repeat themselves a lot also. So take care if you needs go to the outdoors. Drink plenty of fluids. (not beer or whiskey or anything else with alcohol as a major ingredient) Most carbonated drinks should be limited as well as who needs any extra gas. I think most nutritionist (not on UF's Payrole) would agree that plain old H2O is the best (though I can't really recommend the water from most city systems that have been "made safe to drink" with the addition of clorine")

In La. today it is HOT HOT HOT!!!!!!!!

Friday, whats a friday

Here we go again. I have to work Sat nite/Sun am and next weekend I may be looking at the same. Good thing I get the OT for it. Anywho we had a couple of deaths in the house yesterday. A pleco suicided and Pancho simply expired. Green snakes are hard to feed. Fed both to the cats. Life goes on.

More to come.....................................

Can't Touch That

At least that is what I've been told. I thought summer was full time below Orlando. With an occasional freeze (temp actually dips below 60)....

In La. on the 4th of July the temp this afternoon varied from 70ish to sauna in about 30 minutes. Not a good hair day for sure, but who really cares. We had about 90 people over for lunch and there weren't many leftovers.. Sorry e' touffee' couldn't even lick the pot.. Nothing left in the way of potato salad or bannana pudding. Accourding to Courtney (she's new to this game anyway) you have to load up first time through the line because seconds can get scarce quick.. And you exit the building via the dessert table. {I thought every one knew that??}

Sounds like the fireworks are done and the bugs are splatting againt the window so ya'll have a happy 5th tomorrow and don't forget to check under the bed.

No telling what you'll find there.....................
