Another hot day, 103 forecast, so I have thought of things to do inside besides working on my large paintings. Been having a bit of fun decorating an old purse of mine. Eddie fans should get it. Any thoughts on what other Eddie tidbits to paint on the little purse? Have been following the Tour de France on Versus and today the British Open has started. Tiger not starting off well but never, ever, count him out. Read this article in the local paper today. It lets us know how dangerous this unrelenting heat can be.
"Man dies from heat, EMS says
A man died Wednesday of apparent heat-related causes after emergency crews found him unconscious in a car.
About 4:30 p.m., a man was reported as being unresponsive inside a car in South Austin, Austin-Travis County Emergency Medical Services officials said. Medics found the man in cardiac arrest and performed CPR, but he died at a hospital about 5:40 p.m., EMS officials said. They did not release the man's name or age.
The man's body temperature was 108 degrees when he died, officials said.
"The individual appears to have spent long hours over several days working outdoors without proper hydration," EMS Assistant Director Frank Urias said."

AP Summary) – Mississippi's still king of cellulite, but an ominous tide is rolling toward the Medicare doctors in neighboring Alabama: obese baby boomers. It's time for the nation's annual obesity rankings and, outside of fairly lean Colorado, there's little good news. Obesity rates among adults rose in 23 states over the past year and didn't decline anywhere, says a new report.
And while the nation has long been bracing for a surge in Medicare as the boomers start turning 65, the new report makes clear that fat, not just age, will fuel much of those bills. In every state, the rate of obesity is higher among 55- to 64-year-olds—the oldest boomers—than among today's 65-and-beyond. That translates into a coming jump of obese Medicare patients that ranges from 5.2% in New York to 16.3% in Alabama, the report concluded. http://www.usatoday.com/news/health/2009-07-01-most-obese-state_N.htm
