Good 56º dark smokey sky morning. Yesterday we topped at 106º at 4pm. UGH.
Today is a full moon. Take care out there!
This beautiful woman Annette Kellerman promotes women's Right to wear a Fitted One-piece Bathing Suit, 1907. She was arrested for indecency. Wow.
In the 1920s when measured and found the bathing suit too short you would be fined. Thank God for Democracy.

On July 27, we recognize an aged whisky distilled from malted barley.  It is National Scotch Day!
This particular whisky first and foremost must be made in Scotland. It must be fermented from malted barley, aged in oak barrels for at least three years and have an ABV of less than 94.8%. While most Scotch is made with barley, water and yeast, other grains can be included, but no fermentation additives, per law.
There are five distinct categories of Scotch whisky including single malt Scotch, single grain Scotch, blended malt Scotch, blended grain Scotch and blended Scotch.
Enjoy some scotch with friends. (Remember always to drink responsibly and never drink and drive)
