"Adopting a Child won't change the world; but for that Child the world will change."

We had a wedding to go to yesterday.... in the 40C (105F) heat. I'm OVER this heat! The Chapel wasn't air conditioned. It was a Catholic wedding, and I was very proud of the Priest, he whipped through it in just under an hour! Everyone looked beautiful, and remarkably, they didn't really look hot! (other than the Groom... poor man!) The camera man was dripping wet (with sweat!) eeewww.

The reception was at a big fancy Greek style Reception Hall... and their air con wasn't really working either! They even put ice in the beer!!! The food was beautiful. But I'm sorry... after 6 hours of the Greek music, my head was killin' me, and I really needed to go home! (absolutely no offense is intended to the Greek community... I'm just not used to the music... and it was SO LOUD!)

Anyway, everyone was gorgeous... it was just so friggin hot. It is sposed to be cooling down, over the next week (dropping 2-5C), should be in the high 30s most of the week. Urgh. Did I tell ou it's 4C in Shanghai?!!

Speaking of which.... we're down to single digits now!

You guys are suffering some very hot weather in Australia. I've watched all the updates from the temps on the court at the Australian open. One said down on court level it was nearly 126F. That's way too hot. Looks like the temperatures are supposed to cool down for you soon.

Can't believe you are 9 days from travel. It's got to be exciting!!!
