It is 6:40 a.m. and I am sitting here shivering with the window open and my nose running. No wonder, it is 61F. outside and the breeze is blowing right in on me. I can either close the window or get out the shawl again. Doesn't Mother Nature know it is August? I went for the shawl.

50F here. Yesterday at the fruit stand they told me it was a bad year for zucchini because of the cold nights. It felt like August a month ago and now it feels like September.

I have to admit, I am not heartbroken at all over the loss of the zucchini crop this year or any other year.

The Today show has been running a tease for a segment on lab grown meat.

I don't think I will ever be ready for ground meat that has been produced in a test tube.

Maybe it's time to start rereading those dusty vegetarian cookbooks!

Many people consider church events to be community events.

Unless people are posting these notices on your door, they're not ramming anything down your throat. The notices are obviously not intended for you personally. As Pac noted, though, your sig contradicts your complaint.

Our high this year has only been 94, we usually have a long spell where it is near or over 100 for quite a while. We've seen mostly 80's this summer and I'm not complaining!

Yes, bakechef, it's been an enjoyable July/August so far.
Maybe we are going through a global cooling spell

We're experiencing the same type of weather. It definitely felt like a fall day yesterday. I don't miss the humidity (and heat), but the garden sure isn't producing like it normally would be at this time. We've also had rain more days than not. Hard to believe we were in a level 2 drought at this time last year.

Our weather has been cooler than normal here too, I'm not complaining.

I placed an online order with Eddie Bauer for a couple pairs of jeans this morning (buy one, get 2nd 50% off), and shortly after, got the mail, which included an EB catalog offering free shipping, and an EB Friends reward certificate for $5. I called customer service, and they went ahead and applied the free shipping and certificate to my order! I love good customer service!
