Northern California, in the Sierra Foothills. Average daytime high in the summer is ~95. We usually get around 15 100+ days each summer but looks like
we are currently in the middle of a 10 day stretch above 100.
Still can't complain, in Phoenix they have something like 4 months of consecutive days above 100.
Let us celebrate the longest day of the year. I wish you all well.
A fire was lit in many traditions to drive out evil and prolong the light.
In the southern hemisphere, where Kaelci and Timely reign it is the shortest day.
Cheers to all and to a grand turning point.

I have listened to this tune as a means of encouragement for two decades. The tide turns twice a day. Perhaps we should ride it.

I believe we do here in The Shed. We share joy and pain, laughter and tears, we are the tide perhaps?
Hello everyone. I'm really not much in the mood to talk as I'm tired and achy all over. I think the achy is due to the change of weather caused by
tropical storm Cindy.
The results are in from my cardiologist today.
In 2001 I was sick with the onset of pneumonia and the feeling like I was having a heart attack. The hospital could not prove that I had a heart
attack. Today my cardiologist said that I had a massive heart attack sometime in the past so the one in 2001 must have been it.
After testing due to my most recent heart attack this year I have found out that the aorta going into my heart is leaking. To be safe more testing
needs to be done. Of course, now I wait for my insurance to ok this. This will involve wearing some sort of heart monitor vest for a couple of days
and a heart catheter test. The results of this will determine if I am in the need of heart surgery.
It's things like this that make me wish that I had someone close to me to be there with me and understand what is going on. Now that I know I have a
leaky aorta that is going to bug me by just knowing that there is a problem.
Oh Blue, I hope you don't worry yourself sick like I do. I know it's scary and stressful, but we'll be here for you Hun! I keep forgetting I have an
enlarged heart and always have one test or another up ahead for one thing or another. Thank God we all have each other here. Hugs!
Will you sit by me a while and share the pages of your life unfolding? Will you be my joy and sorrow, my hope and inspiration? Could you
let the rest of the world go for just a little while, take my hand and journey forth to worlds unknown? Will we run with the wolves and fly with the
dragons? Will we sit in meadows sweet and listen to the songs of birds and watch as the fairies dance wild and free?
