Gawd, here in Orange County it's roasting. Yesterday a high of 81; probably the same today.
The AC is cranked, and I ain't talking about Cosgrove.

For the Bay Area forecast; here's Dan Silver. . .

forgot, he doesn't go out in the daylight.

Well, I *don't* have AC, but I've been dealing with the heat by massaging special acupressure points, eating coriander and mint and cucumbers, and lukewarm chamomile tea, and practicing these yoga breathing exercises that are supposed to cool you down (stick out your tongue, roll it, breath in through your mouth and out through your nose...or grit your teeth and breath in and out through your mouth). A year ago a friend suggested wearing white and silver and walking in moonlight after a cool sandalwood bath. I may take her up on that... I guess I am a bit of a hippie!

I've heard good things about aloe juice but haven't tried it yet...

Anyway, now that I'm going to be a teacher I get to be one of those really annoying people that leaves every summer. Mwahaha.
