As we are stuck in the middle of a terrific heat wvave sooooo hot a person can hardly think, I've taken the liberty to put together a little list of some of my favorite ways to beat the heat. As follows:


Cold prepared foods from the Old World Food Market, Rte 59, Nyack, NY.

Wonderful, healthful cold fruit salads- lots of watermellon (see how far you can spit the seeds), peaches and citrus fruits- all especially soothing and cooling.

According to a reliable source- cottage cheese with pineapple- very refreshing and not too heavy.

Gorgeous, incredibly delicious gelatos from Didier Dumas, Main Street, Nyack, NY.

Dinner out at Johnny Cakes Diner, Main Street, Nyack, NY. Home of the 16 oz. one dollar coffee to go, hot or ICED and where kids eat FREE until 9pm with every adult meal purchased. Yipee.

Outrageous selections of Jane's Ice Cream from Temptations, Main Street, Nyack, NY.

More gorgeous gelatos at Turiellos- at the corner of Main and Broadway, Nyack, NY.

More of Jane's fabulous Ice Cream at the Palisades Market, Rte. 9W, Palisades, NY.

Very light wine spritzers- mostly spritz.

Cooling off by running through the lawn sprinkler- a real childhood favorite.

Camping out in the frozen foods isle at Shoprite of West Nyack, NY. until closing.

Cruising the refrigerated sections of Shoprite, West Nyack, NY. for sale items- until closing.

Ice cold compresses sprinkled with 4711 Eau de Cologne- applied to the insides of the wrist and also to the nape of the neck.

Movie night in a very well air conditioned movie theatre.

Have a cold shower and then stand dripping wet in front of a fan until dry.

And finally, a tall glass of ice cold tea with lemon and mint could be your only salvation- I know it's mine.

That should do it, don't you think and as an old friend of mine says- Stay Cruel Baby

Maybe you have some favorites you'd like to add to the list?
