It’s Sunday and many of us are still sweltering. Hmm. I wonder if a piece of baloney would fry on the neighbor’s hood. Most of the sane people are in the house where the AC is cranked up (The motor. The temperature is cranked down.) and the computer is nearby. We have a number of destinations planned that will not necessarily keep you cool, but rather take your mind off the heat.
