How you mean? There were so many I couldn't count and they don't have a total for all from today and how many there will be tomorrow. I bet there were well over 2 thousand walkers/runners today. There will be many more tomorrow, seems alot of folks have showed up from around the country as part of their training for the Boston marathon.

I met lots of people from all over, today was the day for mostly amateurs (like me) to run, not the serious marathoners. I personally treated about 175 people, we didn't need any EMT's today.

I was just trying for a laugh:

"I had a 12 pack-size cooler today that was filled with ice and bandanas, traded them out for people. Worked great."

I'll remember next time to quote. I thought I was posting right after you, but that turned out not to be the case, also my post ended up at the top of the next page. Glad you got a laugh, that was my intention.

I live in NY now, but I'm from the Central Valley in California, and I will not fire up the oven in the summer. We have A/C, but I just won't heat up the house. We have huge BBQ, a smoker, and we just got a smallish gas grill at Big Lots. I also have been known to carry the crockpot out to the front porch. And we eat salads and cold soup. Gazpacho, anyone?

I do roast my tomatoes for my canned sauce, so I fire the oven up in the early morning for that. Seems to be better than simmering in a big pot for hours to thicken. Other than that, no oven and no long simmering soups or stews. Those wait til winter.

gazpacho? by all means - it's what's for breakfast today, with refills throughout the day no doubt. but i'll use my oven all summer long for the b-day cake, sure, but also for any major food craving that comes along--peach or blueberry cobbler, pork roast, pizza, roast potatoes, brownies, etc. i will plan these baking whims for early in the morning, but i'm not waiting til october for a favorite meatloaf or soup. when it comes to food, gratification comes sooner rather than later for me - almost every time.... i stopped apologizing for being a "foodie" a long time ago.

My oven isn't what heats things up, it's new (2 years) and apparently well insulated. It's making stock or soup that really heats things up.

Early morning works for me. If I don't get started early, I wait for the next day. It really isn't worth heating up my place, not to mention the additional humidity.

selling air conditioners would be a profitable business right about now--fans and swimming pools too. the temperature has been hovering at about 100 deg. every day for a week or more here--hi at up to 110. not hearing much from our canadian, s.a. and english friends lately, you lucky dogs....:)
