Soul Food is Back

[googled image: I AM DYING FOR THE OCEAN!!!! This is Nags Head, N.C.]

Some time ago, when probably I was bored & fussy or something like that, I got on my blog, then got to fiddling & rearranging & updating & deleting and just generally fooling around with my layout and lists. In the process, I deleted all my Soul Food blog links. This morning, I FINALLY got around to putting that list back in order, with some fun new additions! Whew. I'm okay at work because I have them all saved into a favorites list -- never got around to doing that at home so had to scrounge to find them the entire time my list was down.

I think I've gotten around to -- uh -- at least DEALING with the fact that the heat is here, the heat is ON, the heat will follow me everywhere now until -- oh, at least early October ... so I've decided to come out of my cocoon, get over my intense SULK [& accompanying bad attitude], and resume reading these lovely blogs.

Note: This just came up on the MSN home page: "Grab a towel. Desert city is America's sweatiest - Phoenix tops annual list of 100 drippingly hot cities. It may be "dry heat" out there, but Phoenix leads a list of America's sweatiest cities, according to an annual ranking from deodorant maker Old Spice. The desert city's average high temperature was 95.1 degrees in June, July and August 2007, the company said. As a result, the average Phoenix resident pumped out 26.4 ounces of sweat per hour. That's the equivalent of more than two cans of soda. Do you live in a sweaty city? Check the list. Here are the top 20 cities (MSN's article listed the top 100):
1. Phoenix, Ariz.
2. Las Vegas, Nev.
3. Tallahassee, Fla.
4. Tucson, Ariz.
5. Memphis, Tenn.
6. Miami, Fla.
7. Houston, Texas
8. Tampa, Fla.
9. Baton Rouge, La.
10. Fort Myers, Fla.
11. Huntsville, Ala.
12. New Orleans, La.
13. Birmingham, Ala.
14. Jacksonville, Fla.
15. West Palm Beach, Fla.
16. Montgomery, Ala.
17. Orlando, Fla.
18. Dallas, Texas
19. Little Rock, Ark.
20. Corpus Christi, Texas

[I feel somehow vindicated for being crabby about the heat!]
