Have you ever heard the phrase, the dog days of summer?  Well, we are right in the thick of it as this year it started July 3rd and ends August 11th.  These punishingly hot summer days get their name from ancient times about the brightest star in the sky—not from dogs’ tendency to laze around in the heat.

Sirius, the brightest star in the constellation Canis Major, means “big dog” in Latin and is said to represent one of Orion’s hunting dogs. Sighting Sirius, look low to the southeast in the dawn. As August rolls on it rises successively higher each morning.  Ancient Greeks & Romans believed this shining star contributed to the sun’s heat, thus referring to this extremely hot period. 

Stupid Roman’s….everyone knows it’s when they test the Death Ray.

Honestly we have had a great summer!  The heat has been tolerable even though it has gotten pretty warm some days.  Matter of fact, it was so hot the other day I saw a dog who wouldn’t chase the cars passing by.  He sat on the curb and took down license plate numbers. ~Rodney Dangerfield.

Now, let’s go out today carrying God’s grace in our hearts and give some respect to our fellow humans.
