I was feeling a bit faint a little bit ago and slithered downstairs to check the themostat. It was 86F (30C). Gulp! No wonder I didn't feel so well. I was melting. Quickly I sprang into action before it was too late. I switched on the a/c and set the themostat to a much more reasonable temperature. I slammed shut all the windows and pulled the drapes. I carefully checked each vent to make sure they were open and that refreshingly cool air was pouring out through them.
The chair at my desk is close to the vent (on purpose) but to give it a boost, I turned on the powerful little fan sitting on my desk. Whew! I just checked thermostat and the temp has dropped by five degrees. I am beginning to feel better now... slowly but surely.
I cannot imagine what happened! I...

Shani! Your fire is too big! Yes, I know it is cold down there but hot air rises you know and if you make that bonfire any bigger it will get out of control and burn the whole upstairs!
Joyce Bethy Ferguson (@Bethy) is cold too? Sigh... Let me think...
I know! Can you shift the fire so it blows the other direction? Can you make it go the other way? I think Bethy nearly the same distance away in either direction so it shouldn't matter to her if you do and you will stop scorching @cowgirldiva and me in the process.
You know, we should have a party, Shani. That would warm you up quickly. I'll bring the chocolate, marshmallows and graham crackers for s'mores and of course we will need other things as well. Who wants to head down to OZ?
