Whoops! I just caught an error I made in a quote I posted. It says, "That's what you heard, not what you said."

What I meant to say is, "That's what you heard, not what I said." Now it makes sense.

I've never had steak and eggs for breakfast and I've lived here for 17 years. Several of my friends are vegan. My current breakfast consists of a mix of blueberries, guava, nonfat organic vanilla yogurt, flax seed, coconut flour, rice bran and.... well, that's probably making "steak and eggs" sound pretty good to you by comparison, so, what about the heat?

I'm glad it's horrifically hot in Texas for 4-5 months a year. It helps keep the state from growing at the rate that destroyed southern California. But... alas, the heat still isn't preventing millions from moving here. 60% of the new condos in downtown Austin are being purchased by Californians!

And another thing about the heat, it's not as bad here as it is in many other parts of the country. In fact, places like Minneapolis and Baltimore have had more intense heat this year than we've had in central Texas. Just depends on the year. The entire eastern half of the USA has intense summers, with the exceptions of the U.P. of MI, the northern Appalachians, the Adirondacks, and northern Maine.

I personally call that hot
I'm talking about 100 degrees at night time.

Coastal Maine isn't too warm, either- I about froze my hiney off last night here in Mid-Coast/Downeasy Maine- I had to pull out the heavy pj's and the very heavy winter blankets.. and I was still chilled.

That's hard to believe. Where in Texas do you live?

It definitely happens frequently throughout the summer months. I live in Central Texas 65 miles south of Fort Worth. One can check backlogs of weather data from previous years and see that it's so.

Exactly. I use to live in CenTex and it never got that hot at night. Nights are actually pretty muggy during the summer and cold during the winter.

But have you ever been mugged in either city? Do the local police have your mug shot on file? Do you have pugs with mullets (AKA "mugs")?
