I was stung on my head four times by wasps they are building a hive; on the net it said toothpaste was very good for it but we only had toothpaste with bits in I think it might be baking soda or something like that - so my hair got all funny sort of dried out sticky and it hurts like mad. I phoned our housing association to report the nest that they are busy building by the front door ,no one came to help us, and they are going at it like wildfire. It actually looks quite good but I seriously don't want to get stung again. I have put up a big notice saying Angry wasps leave alone but it wou;d ne nice if our housing association actually came up with a plan .

I'm going out to fight the elements today, I shall return.

Take it easy, see you soon.


Not going out there; nothing is growing this time of year.

MissKathleen Level 9 July 26, 2018

Oh yes I remember it's too hot to grow anything down there right now.

@Sheannutt it is too hot for humans down here right now.

@MissKathleen oh yes I remember those hot days down there, stay indoors and stay cool.

@Sheannutt I’m heading for a day in San Diego tomorrow.

@MissKathleen that sounds great, have a safe trip and take some more wonderful photos.

@Sheannutt I’m meeting a friend, her SIL, and niece & nephews for a long lunch at Bistro du Marché, so probably won’t have a lot of photo ops.

@MissKathleen sounds great go and enjoy.


These humid places will kill you if you're not careful.

freeofgod Level 8 July 25, 2018

Yes it can


Good info!

HippieChick58 Level 9 July 25, 2018

You're welcome I thought it would be something that everybody should know.


Indeed! I have projects I want to throw myself info all weekend, but this current heat is making me really have to pace myself. Water water water, and shade whenever possible.

Please do pace yourself, I used to do all my stuff early in the morning when it was cooler.

@Sheannutt early morning is what I am doing. Done by 8:30 or so, and it is already scorching hot by then. Evening, even in shade, it has been too hot

@MikeInBatonRouge yes Baton Rouge is pretty warm this time of year because of the humidity.


Been there more than once. Took a dive from the heat a few weeks back. Got to know when to stop people!

I bet that was no fun for you I've been there.


We're a temperate 98 today (so far) ... it almost feels cool compared to the previous two weeks.

Lauren Level 7 July 25, 2018

We are supposed to get up 102 today but do not think we'll make it it's still real Smokey out there.

@Sheannutt Wow! It's so draining, isn't it? We hit 110 one day last week and I don't understand why businesses and schools don't give days off for it like they do for snow.

@Lauren I used to live in Northeast Texas and I know how hot it can get especially with the humidity.

@Sheannutt Oh, wow, may I ask where you were? And did you like it?

@Lauren a town called Marshall, it was okay, my two kids were born there. We were there from 1976 to 1985.


Currently on the verandah, re-hydrating with a nice Pinot Grigio.... I guess fence posts are designed to STAY in the ground

bigpawbullets Level 8 July 25, 2018

Nice to know that you're rehydrating.
