Last day before the heat breaks. Our little home weather station, which is basically an indoor/outdoor thermometer with a couple extra whistles and bells, recorded highs of 90+ four days in a row. We aren't official weather watchers but we were still hot like hades around our little patch of paradise.

I hate anything over 70F...the only thing I dislike weather-wise other than hot temps is wind...

Sounds lovely James

When I was in Nottingham a few years back, it was the end of Winter, so still very cold, sounds like a warm Summer's day there for you today

I'm with you PF, 70 is just about my limit. The higher the temperature rises the hotter my temper gets. Our first home didn't have central air, not even a window unit. We dealt with it since we had a fully wooded back yard on the west side of the house. Second home actually came with A/C since the main heat was a heat pump with a back-up gas furnace - the best of both worlds for OH. When we moved to MA both real estate agents (ours plus the builder's) tried to tell us we didn't need central air. We didn't care, we told them WE needed it to avoid a murder. Turns out those of us on the street that added central air have been the envy of those who did it the usual way up here (hot water baseboard heat).

Temps are finally cooling off, already down to 65. Still humid and weather is moving in overnight so we'll stay closed up till tomorrow. After that it should be glorious with highs in the low 70s and lows into the 40s! Perfect!

I used to love the hot summer weather. Out in it all day. Now I can't breath in it. Specially if it is hazy. I now understand what they meant for the elderly to stay inside when the weather was not the best quality. When I first moved here I used to sit on the patio all day. Too hot now. So I stay inside.

One of the benefts of the AC is that I can cook and bake and just turn the AC up a notch or two.

82 degrees already this morning. Very pretty blue sky, and breezy. Not bad at all! I need to hurry and do the rest of my plantings before it is way hot!

He also suggested I do the same for the battery on my scooter. I tried that also. It took two days for that to recharge. I do have to admit though, as far as the scooter goes, it does go much faster now and doesn't run down as quickly. But I am not telling him. His head is big enough as it is.

I have the cell phone cord right next to my bed. Every night I plug the phone in and also my scooter. That is the advice I got from the company guy that brought it to me. Plug it in every night. Learning new habits in this world of technology is very wearing on me.
It all depends on the type of battery Addie. The older cell phones had batteries with memory. The newer ones tend to have batteries that don't have that problem. It usually tells you in the instructions if you should fully discharge the battery or not before recharging.

Well, as it always says, "When all else fails, read the instruction." Time to get the book out and read it. I need to stop pretending I know everything already. I don't need to read no stinking instructions.
