    If We Were Having Coffee, I would tell you… 4th of July Holiday was The Hottest

    Good grief! I have longed for summer to start for the past six months but all that heat at once was not on my agenda. We have no Air Conditioning in our home due to the cost of the added electricity on the bill. The fans did run all week long, and they didn’t seem to help much with the high humidity.

    If we were having Coffee, I’d tell you…life is on the move.

    Ventura Inferno

    https://nyti.ms/2kNvTPZ California winds are at it again only this year, with all that rain they received the vegetation took off resembling the wildfire that is now devouring the state. Residents are forced to flee a fire that is burning out of control while Firefighters battle the blaze that won’t go out anytime soon. The fire has claimed several racehorses and over 4 thousand acres of land in a short amount of time. People are being told to “get out” leave before the blaze reaches their neighborhood.
