Never Thirst!

July 10, 1913. Do you know the significance of that date? On that day was recorded the highest temperature ever observed not just in the continental United States, but in the world. On that day in Death Valley, California, the temperature reached 134 degrees. More than likely you will not have to endure summer temperatures…

Are You Sorry?

Your perfect golf outing is ruined when you receive a $200 ticket for going 65 mph in a 45 mph zone. What most closely describes your emotions?
