Watermelon Best Not Chilled? Manicures & Cancer.

"After it's picked, watermelon continues to ripen and build up antioxidants. Cold temperatures appear to cut this process short.
So leave your watermelon out, as long as you haven't sliced it. After it's cut, it should be stored in the refrigerator for food-safety reasons.
For an ice-cold treat, chill the fruit right before serving. And don't forget to wash your watermelon before cutting it to avoid this. "

Slather on that SPF every chance you get this summer. But for extra sun protection points, eat plenty of these fruits as well: cherries, nectarines, and watermelon.

Manicures and Skin Cancer:

"According to a study in the April 2009 issue of Archives of Dermatology, there's real danger in the dryers most salons use to give nails that hard, smudge-proof finish.
The study examined two healthy, middle aged women with no history of skin cancer and little recreational UV exposure. Both had developed skin cancers on the top of their hands, and reported previous exposure to UV nail lights.

New York City dermatologist Dr. Neil Schultz explains that the UV light that comes on halfway through the nail drying cycle is pretty much like setting your polish with a mini tanning bed. "

It was not humid, and cool enough that I could open the windows and doors, so I let the cats out on the screen porch, this morning. 
I haven't been able to do that for some time. 
But by 8.30 AM, I had to bring them in, close the house back up again, and turn the AC on, as it was getting sticky and warm.

Then it turned in to just a rainy day.
