BLINDS WIDE OPEN -day 142 The Dog Days of Summer

Following up on Laurie's blog of yesterday with the Bulldog on the ice, I wanted to define what the Dog Days of Summer means. There are so many sayings, quotes etc..that I felt with the current heat wave sweeping 40 plus states, it is pertinent that all of our followers and the blogger himself are clear..So here it is: The Dog Days of Summer are the hottest, most sultry days of summer. In the northern hemisphere, they usually fall between early July and early September. In the southern hemisphere they are usually between January and early March. The actual dates vary greatly from region to region, depending on latitude and climate. Dog Days can also define a time period or event that is very hot or stagnant, or marked by dull lack of progress. The name comes from the ancient belief that Sirius, also called the Dog Star, in close proximity to the sun was responsible for the hot weather. I believe in our current position in the Golden State, we are in the early stages of the Dog Days. Sirius, the Dog Star must be close to the sun so get ready.

This is Dave, from The McLaughlin Group, keeping it real in real estate!
