Here in DFW, Texas it's 107F outside. Brutal - my lawn is begging for mercy, but annually August is our worst month ever. How about you? What's it like where you are?
In the meantime as we hunker down in our A/C cooled homes, what can you do? Enjoy some entertainment, right? Here are two videos that have recently caught my eye on the newsfeed. They are exceptionally well done.

Google Glasses should have been (thanks to Jerry Harmon)

I was scrolling down my personal 'melev' page and there's all sorts of nifty images, and I know the same is true for the reefaddicts page.
Bigger news: MACNA is getting closer. We are less than two months out, and last night our club toured the Sheraton Hotel. The group saw where you enter, the restaurant, the bar, registration, went across the skybridge to the convention area to see where the Reception/Casino night will be as well as the Gala that seats 1200 for Jean-Michel Cousteau's keynote address. When then took the escalator down to the ground level to see the Exhibitor Hall and the area where the speakers present as well as the huge raffle area. Thereafter, we went up to see both a hotel room and a suite. Finally, we converged on Draft, the sports bar where we enjoyed some drinks, food, and played some pool while others watched various games on the many tv screens (including the Olympics). Here's a quote from our club's site by one member:
"It was a fun event... The Hotel is great, MACNA is going to be crazy fun... Book your room soon, they are filling up fast... You don't want to miss THIS EVENT. Thanks Drew for making the meeting at the Hotel possible."
