Hot…Hazy…Humid

Feel-like temperatures closer to 100 degrees during the afternoon

 

Keeping you and your family safe during this mini-heat wave

Stay Hydrated…

Experts suggest that we drink half of your body weight (in ounces) of water!

 

Take lots of breaks if you must work outside

Better yet, work early and late when the sun is Not so extreme

 

Wear Sunscreen

Apply sunscreen 15 to 30 minutes BEFORE you go outside.

*Re-apply every two hours.

 

Check on your neighbors

 

Check on your outdoor pets

FYI:  If you can’t put your hand on the pavement for at least 5 seconds,

it’s TOO hot for your pet’s paws. www.wakehealth.edu/stories/5-simple-summer-safety-tips

 

What if you could use the same charging cable for all of your devices — your phone, laptop, earbuds, camera, tablet, portable speaker, etc.   European regulators will be required tech makers to support a single common charging standard for all mobile devices as early as the fall of 2024. But, Apple hates the idea (shocker)…

It’s peak summer movie season. 1986 vs 1993? Old is new again.

Gun legislation? A bipartisan group of senators (including 10 Republicans) has reached a deal to expand background checks for gun buyers under 21, encourage states to enact “red flag” laws, and address mental health issues. Supporters applauded the breakthrough, while critics said the plan doesn’t go far enough.

This is only a test?

A North Carolina ‘Pest Control Company’ is offering homeowners $2,000 dollars if ‘said homeowner’ allows the company to release 100 cockroaches into their homes. The company, The Pest Informer, is testing “a specific pest control technique” – to see how effective it is. NOTE: At the end of the 30 day study, if the cockroach infestation isn’t gone, the company says it will use “traditional cockroach treatment options at no cost.”??  FYI: The test treatment IS pet safe.

Tips: Keeping Pets Safe this Summer

Provide plenty of water

Pets need ‘hydration’ just like we (humans) do.

 

Beware of HOT pavement

Use the palm of your hand to check pavement temperatures before walking your pet!  

 

Don’t leave your pet in the car

Just as with children, leaving a pet in the car for even a few minutes can cause it to have heat stroke. BTW: Even on a 70-degree day, a car – in direct sunlight – can heat up to 100 degrees within minutes.

How effective (and safe) is your favorite sunscreen? 

In their new 2022 review of more than 1,800 sunscreen products, the Environmental Working Group found that only one in four products (or 500), meets EWG standards for adequate sun protection while avoiding ingredients linked to known health harms. Products marketed for babies and kids do slightly better, on average, with one in three meeting EWG standards. Lots of helpful info at https://www.ewg.org/sunscreen/#0

 

 

After spending some time in prayer this morning,

the Lord gave me this reminder .

Continuing to follow His leading…His direction….His prompting.

If you are struggling today. Not sure which way to turn. Everything looks upside down, confused, distorted. I encourage you to run to the Father. Read His word…listen for His voice….pray to feel His presence for in His presence all things are made new. Lives are changed (as we) come to the Father

 -Bethany L. on Facebook…

 

The LORD says in Psalm 32:8,

“I will guide you along the best pathway for your life.

 I will advise you and watch over you.” 

Psalm 32:8 New Living Translation
