Holy moly!
I keep the house at 78 in the day and 75 during the night, and we sleep with goose down comforters. I have also banned fans.
My husband sweats all day long tho, but men have no say

If Shrek gets cold, he just puts more clothes on. We are both from cold weather states and the heat is tough on us.

78 when we aren't home, 74 in the evening and 71 to sleep, I'd keep it colder but my other half would freeze to death. When I was single, you could have left the fridge door open and the food would have stayed fresh, lol!

One thing about cold vs. heat, for cold you can always heap on more clothing; for heat once you've taken everything off you've reached a limit where you can't get any cooler.

That is exactly how I feel Greg!

Another reason to the list of many as to why I hate Summer

You can only get so naked. And the police look down on it too, I hear.
