Heat Wave and MAKE YOUR BED

Well, we’re having our second little heatwave in Vancouver–this time with the addition of smoke from one of the many forest fires around B.C.

And I learned a new ‘hack’ for keeping my apartment cooler. Most of my windows face South or West. High temperatures and sun turn my place into a furnace. I slept on the fire escape (with Lucky) during the first heatwave.
But not this time. I was told by a nice young woman that putting tinfoil on my windows, shiny side out, would cool my place. And no kidding, it works. I haven’t had to sleep outside. It’s warm but quite bearable inside. A bit dark, but you can’t have everything–what would you do with it?

And I keep a check on Lucky’s breathing. If she’s panting, I wet her down. Don’t ever leave a dog alone in an apartment during a heatwave. A lot of people got their hearts broken here when they came home last month.

And, let’s see, oh, yes, Mike (our tech guy) did some new videos that have been posted on our website and as YouTubes.

There’s an update of the story of our protocol. I’m now a few weeks away from 7 years psoriasis free (well, I get the odd spot but they don’t stay long). It still amazes me after 47 years of battling this disease.

And, of course, you could donate to receive a copy of my new book “MAKE YOUR BED” for the price of a slice of New York cheesecake (which they sell down the street from me and it’s bloody delicious!) I think you’ll like it. (the book, that is:)

A $10 donation helps to keep the website alive and happy. Blessings, in advance.

Much love,

Dakota and Lucky

I live in the beautiful city of Vancouver, on the West coast of Canada. I share my apartment with a little Brussels Griffon called Lucky. I like to read and watch movies and draw cartoons and write. I'm also a published author and painter. Mostly I like to putter. And fix things. And think.
