98 Degrees in the shade, to hot in the shade

This has nothing to do with making glyphs, but it might make making glyphs easier.

Make simple sugar for your ice tea/coffee and lemonade. One cup of sugar in a bowl add one cup of boiling water and stir with a spoon. The sugar desolves making simple surup. Simple surup desolves in your ice tea/coffee and lemonade, unlike raw sugar which goes to the bottom of your glass like a lump.

Lemons and Limes can be a pain to juice. Microwave them for 15 to 20 seconds then cut then into wedges, not across, you get more juice.

…summertime and the glyphs are easy…

Dan, I taught that trick to the guy at the local Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf the other day! BTW, I was in Fresno recently: 117 degrees.

Nothing but high 90's here in Philly every day...I stay in my A/C'ed apartment as much as possible. I had to walk 20 blocks this morning to get supplies for my portfolio, that was horrible.

I like hydrglyphics it sounds like science. Makes me think of the cowardly lion in the Wisard of OZ after he got his courage from the "wizard". Hrant, I told someone about simple sugar recently and he was scared to make it. I guess it takes all types to make a cake. Also keep passing the word, nothing is worse than a clump of sugar at the bottom of your ice tea.

I wish I could do it at Starbucks. That raw sugar piling up at the bottom of my iced latte gets to the nitty-gritty. The double zapper of caffeine and cold sweet fluid refreshment.

Caffeine yuck! I drink mostly tea and it has phytochemicals that counteract the caffeine effect. I like not having twiching hands and surges and crashes (energy levels) caused by caffeine. I guess this is more hydrglyphics

Hrant, you know how hot it is out here. Remember one year when it got to 123. We had 28 people die LAST MONTH due to heat related deaths.

Why do I live here? -- ohh yeah, winters by the pool. :)

> I wish I could do it at Starbucks.

Just ask for a small cup of hot water. They don't need to know. Don't confuse them more than they already are. I've noticed they have trouble with "What kind of tea do you have?" One time I had to repeat that question so many times, the guy in line behind me broke down and yelled out the question for me.

Kyle, I miss Arizona - haven't been in over 10 years.
