Just put more moss on your back it will keep the sun out....

Oh boy, grass is going NUTS!!! And yes, I do have a little redness to me from sailing the other day. Had some factor 100 sunblock on and still got a little burned. I try to stay out of the sun as much as possible because of previous sun damage.

Yes I saw that footage he got pretty lucky on that one. They probably will find him.

I bet your grass is growing fast right now ours sure is. Sounds like you might get a sun tan  this year with all the sunshine you are getting.

Don't know if y'all saw this wreck on a California freeway the other day. One lucky biker!!! The cops are still looking for him.

Yup, there have been some drownings but surprisingly not during the last couple days. Saturday it was in the low 90's. Thankfully these heat blasts are few and far between here. Last year we got roasted!

Wow. Dave you guys must be melting up there with those temps. and with all the snow you got this year the rivers and creeks must be flowing fast right now. We are having a lot of drownings this year we also have a lot of cold fast moving water and people are not paying attention to how cold and fast the water is moving.

Yeah Shannon, it was 98 at my house yesterday. Even cold beer made me sick! Supposed to be in the mid 70's today. Much better!
