It is bloody hot out !

with the temps well over the 90's for the next solid week please check in on your elderly neighbors , if any one needs a loner fan I have 2 extra ones for the heat wave if you know some one in dire need and can not afford one !
they are not perfect but they work great.....

Bump - thanks HAZMAT. Great post. KEEP HYDRATED TOO!

Don't forget your pets too - lots of water, keep the AC on if possible and at night keep them inside with the AC on, and a loud TV when the fireworks start. DON'T LET THEM OUT BECAUSE THEY MAY NOT COME HOME IF THEY GET SPOOKED!

I heard the forcast this morning on KYW, and for the next, like five days, the lowest temp was 95. I think they actually said it might be 101 on Saturday. God bless those poor folks who lost their electricty in the storm the other night.

when we where kids we would sleep outside on really hot nights !
and that was right here in the neighborhood we would throw a bunch of blankets and pillows on the sidewalk and bring the tv out on the steps and watch the ball games...
also can remember putting ice in a bowl in front of a fan and wetting a towel to hang on the fan with that and the ice ya had home made a/c for about 20 minutes lol..

Interstate's "Iced Tea" is nothing but danger in a carton. I'll be down for the count shortly. Enjoy yourselves.

Neatly chiseled, well groomed, drop dead handsome face.

Was there last night. Service sucked. Door open, flies, air conditioning ineffective, and poor service. Food was okay, but it suffered from the service. (Entree's served at different times, empty wine glasses when meal served, 15 minute wait after meal came to get wine...etc.) I'll blame it on the heat.
