Much too hot for news today. Up in the 90s but supposedly falling to the 50s tonight or so. Sounds refreshing to me. Our air conditioner is now up and running in the store but the overhead apartment is all but unbearable . . . The proposed parking lot next to the Midtown Cinema is now under construction . . . Placed an order for goat milk soaps and lotions and learned that the company has obtained some more of the cucumber mint and glycerin soap that has been so popular at $3 per bar. Bought a lot of it. Also ordered oatmeal soap for those of you at work in your gardens . . . Have heard nothing but good reports about the new restaurant at the end of Green on North. A bit pricey, however . . .
