    It's getting hotter in the armpit of the world!

    Today’s temperature in Beeffalo is expected to reach 100 degrees. It’s now at 97. Look at this! I’m giving you a boring weather report from a boring city that no one really gives a rat’s ace about to begin with!
    If I had it my way I would pack and never come back. Which reminds me ---
    Pressed Rat And Warthog
    By Ginger Baker and Mike Taylor
    Pressed rat and warthog have closed down their shop.
    They didn't want to; 'twas all they had got.
    Selling atonal apples, amplified heat,
    And pressed rat's collection of dog legs and feet.
    Sadly they left, telling no one goodbye.
    Pressed rat wore red jodhpurs, warthog a striped tie.
    Between them, they carried a three-legged sack,
    Went straight round the corner and never came back.
    Pressed rat and warthog have closed down their shop.
    The bad captain madman had told them to stop
    Selling atonal apples, amplified heat,
    And pressed rat's collection of dog legs and feet.
    The bad captain madman had ordered their fate.
    He laughed and stomped off with a nautical gate.
    The gate turned into a deroga tree
    And his pegleg got woodworm and broke into three.
    Pressed rat and warthog have closed down their shop.
    They didn't want to; 'twas all they had got.
    Selling atonal apples, amplified heat,
    And pressed rat's collection of dog legs and feet.

    Jeez Styxx...that's WINTER temps down here!

    Are we wollin'? A one, a two, a free, a four...
    A mother was washing her baby one night,
    The youngest of ten and a delicate mite.
    The mother was poor and the baby was thin,
    'Twas naught but an skelingtin covered with skin.
    The mother turned 'round for a soap off the rack.
    She was only a moment but when she turned back
    Her baby had gone, and in anguish she cried,
    "Oh, where 'as my baby gone?" The angels replied:
    Oh, your baby has gone down the plug 'ole.
    Oh, your baby has gone down the plug.
    The poor little thing was so skinny and thin,
    He should 'ave been washed in a jug, in a jug.
    Your baby is perfectly happy;
    He won't need a bath anymore.
    He's a-muckin' about with the angels above,
    Not lost but gone before.
    Thankyou,
    Do you wanna do it again?

    Styxx, I don't want to hear it! Armpit of the world?

    DON'T YOU KNOW HOW IMPORTANT BUFFALO, NY IS TO WORLD PEACE AND SECURITY?

    It's our first line of defense against attack from the fearsome Canadians! If it wasn't for Buffalo, the US would be flooded with Anne Murray clones, French-speaking Quebecois and - Canada Dry Ginger Ale...

    Which reminds me, I had an uncle who saw an ad that said, "Drink Canada Dry." So he went up there and tried...

    Ha Ha Ha!!!!!!!!! Drink Canada Dry! Ha!
    I think the heat got to me for the first time this summer. Not used to 98 + and the classroom has no air circulation.
    Hemingway, I toured Canada for two and a half years with a theatrical/orchestral/progressive rock group in the seventies. Went many places, met plenty faces and had one heck of a time in most. Never made anything to speak of or to retire from but had quite an experience. Yup, Canada ... nice country and lots of beautiful French Canadian goilssk! Uk kuk kuk kuk! I yams what I yams!

    Ahh Styxx -- better not retire to Arizona. We jkust finished a spate (almost six weeks) of time where even eveining and night temperatures did not drop below 104 as an average---- Days at my home have been running about 114 in the shade -- so do not touch that steering wheel when you get in the car.


    Phoenix has had 29 directly heat related deaths -- and US HUD refuses to let any money go for air conditioning for the poor in public housing -- although in your neighborhood the poor are subsidized for heat in the winter.


    So "hot" music down here is a little slower moving this time of year -- unless you are walking barefoot.
