I feel sad that we live in such a racially divided society. Fox appear to be nothing more than a type of upgraded version of the new K.K.K. I have not heard any of those on fox mention something in the way of a retraction. Shirley Sherrod father was killed by the K.K.K. Fox racial controversy only add to her pain, this I am sure. I have watched Fox for the last time. One would think Obama administration and the NAACP would have known the reputation of Fox by now. Fox is owned by Rupert Murdoch from Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. That country never had a history book until fifty years ago, What were they going to write about, Crime. Those Australia running the county after banishment from England were all forgers . "Well Look At It This Way" They could read.


when the car is sitting in the sun either it be the mall,beach or driveway .roll all the windows down let the brezze purge the heat gain from the sun for a couple of blocks...then roll the windows up then turn the AC on.MAX cool setting is no outside air which is always colder air then switch it to regular circulation on the dash.


I put a box fan on the basement stairs and draw the cool air upstairs.


Hey guys...the key to staying cool on these hot days is to keep yourself hydrated all day ..this way you cook off your core..limit activities and just don't think how hot it is...MIND OVER MATTER....


I have a lot of trees around my home. I keep the blinds drawn for a good part of the day especially if I'm not home. I do leave the house closed up for a good part of the day if it's hot and/or humid. The house stays pretty cool until later in the day.
