     It's Bloody hot and what to do?!? The sun's beating down on us and the air and the trapped moisture and heat are all bearing down on us and stifling our bodies, souls and spirits to the point that we are almost panicked and frenetic in our darting eyes and heads hanging low as we scan our horizons for any chances of escape and relief from all this. it's not a pretty sight.
     I WROTE THE Above paragraph on July 6th, 2010, can you believe it?!? It is getting a bit hot and a bit muggy, certainly warm now, all exciting with yesterday's 4th of July events over now, and the fireworks did happen, and we did see them from the comfort of home on our t.v., and that was just fine!
