103 degrees in Portland today! Record heat for this date & by the end of the week- a record for consecutive days over 90 degrees. The dogs don't like it, the garden doesn't like it, & it is making me really grouchy (but then, I am very much in touch with my inner grouch). How do you beat the heat? For me, a little mid-70s Funk. Funk makes me feel not quite so grouchy.. because Funk makes it more than OK to be too hot. Here is the English, American & Czech members of HEATWAVE doing Too Hot To Handle from 1976, my first summer in NYC.
