Nah, old age! I'm almost 66. Many of my joints hurt from time to time. When the shoulders hurt, I get up and let gravity take the pain away, then I can get more sleep.

We're in the third heat wave of this summer. "So far this summer there have been record-setting high temperatures across Ontario, Quebec and the Atlantic provinces coupled with some of the lowest rainfall on record."

It rained yesterday 4.6 mm - that's .18 inches.

One of our national news report tonight stated that 65% of the country is in drought conditions. The worst since 1955. I hope everyone gets a good five inches of drenching rain.

What's it like on the big rivers in the US? The Saint Lawrence River is low enough that the ships are being told to "light load".

I really don't know. But, AFAIK, the part of the river that the Belugas live in is the estuary, so they probably eat mostly salt water fish.
