I guess I don't have to tell you that it's stinkin' hot here in Houston. Some mornings I wake up and see the windows covered in steam, giving any good Turkish bath house a run for it's money. So, it's not surprising to me that I find myself craving anything cold or refreshing to cool down my internal temperature, which seems to hover around, oh, I don't know, the heat index of the Mojave desert!
