Dragons, Heat, Etc.

Be sure and read today's post over at Hoppa the Geek. It has interesting information about how mapmakers used dragons as symbols and the various interpretations and meanings. Great post. Of course many of you know Hoppa as Laxen Firethrow in the realm of the three continents.

After a night of ups and downs, a queasy stomach seems to be subsiding. Now it's time to work on another set of computers that belong to another Guild Wars player, the Red Dragon aka Dragor Rogue. Also hope to spend some time creating a new workstation for the beach house, probably tomorrow evening. Have two in the making.

Everyone please heed the local warnings about heat. Several people have died due to extreme hot weather and it's just not worth taking a chance with your life to conserve electricity. Be sure and drink enough non-alcoholic beverages in order to fight dehydration. If you have to go outside, try to schedule it as early morning as possible.

Ramblings over. Now I must go against my own advice and jump in my truck with a non-functioning air conditioner and drive to Tupelo. You can bet it will be a quick trip with all windows open! Later.
