We are still waiting for summer to begin in Central Ontario!  64F at the moment, was 55 overnight.  Booooooo!

Well, fever reports something wrong, so be wise...get it checked out. 

A bad mess in Ukraine, for sure.  It's not alone, several messes on the go.  :-(

Comment by goldie080 on July 30, 2014 at 1:54am

July 29-2014. Hi Lynne, just noticed your message. Have been somewhat occupied in countering all the Putin propaganda about Ukraine; so many hackers 'paid by the Kremlin' to spread disinformation, I couldn't resist answering them back. Health has been so-so, seem to have a recurring fever so need to get checked soon. Summer is slipping away, isn't it!
