Hot and Heavenly July!

For us in the northern hemisphere July and August represent the dog days of summer where it’s often high temperatures and high humidity, depending on where you live.  If you’re lucky enough to have a swimming pool, it’s heavenly to cool off by taking a quick dive in the pool, getting in some aerobic exercise, or splashing around with the kiddies or grands.  Don’t forget the sunscreen!

This month we have a “cool” lineup of guests for your summertime “refreshment,” so sit back, grab your favorite beverage from one of the cabana boys and see what we have in store for you this month.
