I never hid inside during the winter, I hiked and skied. I told him at least I had the option of adding clothing if I was cold in the winter, but the authorities would let me take only so much off if I was hot! Stay cool however you can.
Thanks CG. We're hoping the maintenance guy makes it by today. In the mean time, cold shower this morning and off to work a little early. Hubby is thinking about driving around with the cat with him through the hottest part of today since the car ac works just fine. It's either that or keeping them both dowsed in water all day. I'm so grateful he thinks of the cat and doesn't just leave for the day. So glad he works as hard to keep our furry family member cool as he does himself.

I suspect that someone at Staples fired up the computer when it came into the store, to make sure it works properly. And, then they played some Xbox game and signed in.

Anyone know how to sign out of Xbox games in Win 8?
Have you tried to go into the Control Panel and remove any game programs?

But there has to be a way to log out. What if I want to let someone else play some stupid game on my computer? Shouldn't they be able to log in as themself?

That is quite nice, not everyone thinks of their pets at home all day. Mine have an A/C all day, even if humans are not home.

Cats evolved in the desert. How much do they really mind heat? Okay, humid heat seems to bother them. Mine is stretched out on the floor. If he wanted to, he could go in the bedroom which has AC.

Both of mine are in the room with the AC. I know it's hot because they don't migrate into the bedroom with me at night, they stay with the AC. If they wanted to be hot, I wouldn't be able to get them off of me.

Apparently, Beagle evolved in the desert too. She finds the hottest sunbeam whereever it is and sleeps in it.

Spike leaves the AC on low and the ceiling fan running in the bedroom. He also leaves a bowl of ice cubes for Teddy. By the time he is looking for a drink, there is enough water melted from the cubes. Then when they come here at night, I turn the fan directly on Teddy.
