Zeus' ten ways to stay cool indoors

1. Make sure you use your ceiling fans.

2. Install white blinds or shades in your windows, and by all means, keep them closed!

3. Use the microwave oven instead of your oven or stove.

4. Plug your home electronics such as TVs and DVD players into central power strips and turn those off when not in use.

5. Air-dry your dishes instead of using your dishwasher's drying cycle.

6. Turn off your computer when you're not using it.

7. For that matter, turn off the lights as much as possible and use natural light.

8. Do the laundry at nighttime.

9. Shave your head (or fur)!

10. Enjoy some frozen grapes, ice cream, or plain ol' ice.

Great ideas!
I hope you and Ares and the gang are staying cool in this heat wave we have been having.

We spend our days inside, with the A/C cranked way down, fan on, snoozing.It's the only way to go!

Number 11: Move to Seattle where we had a week in the 70s and are hoping that wasn't summer...

Odd, there's no mention of "Move Zeus' litterbox out of that blast-furnace of a garage".

Oh...and just say NO to the shaving, dude. You look good just the way you are.

I like to lay on the cool tile on the bathroom floor when it gets warm. I'll take that over the shave. -Shaggy
