Dog Day Afternoons

WikiPedia defines:   
Dog Days” (Latin: diēs caniculārēs) are the hottest, most sultry days of summer. In the northern hemisphere, they usually fall between early July and early September. In the southern hemisphere they are usually between January and early March. The actual dates vary greatly from region to region, depending on latitude and climate. Dog Days can also define a time period or event that is very hot or stagnant, or marked by dull lack of progress. 
And that’s exactly what its like around here

    Kinda goes to show you how worthless WikiPedia can be sometimes… That term is actually derived from the fact that Sirius, the dog star was the dominant star in the sky over Greece hundreds of years ago. Thus, the ancient Greeks referred to summer as the 'dog days'.

  2. Now those two gorgeous pups have the right idea!
