Summer and music

Lifted from my other blog [/caption]

There are a lot of local and international artists doing shows and concerts this summer. I have watched a few local concerts in the past and I truly enjoyed each performances. Without the opportunity to go to concerts in recent years I contend myself with watching old videos of my favorite artists on YouTube or listen to their songs on Spotify. But if you are a CD collector you can still buy the stuff from the music shop or if you need racks to arrange your collection you can check http://www.musiciansfriend.com/rackmount-cases-stands-furniture. Listening to music and finding your old favorite songs these days is convenient through the Internet. I have checked on my fave songs and ready to listen to them when I’m resting or working online.

Summer fun

We are so looking forward to our family summer outing this year. Hubby said we could be visiting a nearby beach where we are going to spend a whole day of fun. I’m thinking of a pristine beach in Laguna or Batangas. No definite date yet but the kids are already excited. I guess it is easier to write about guitar center drums than plan a family outing.

Warning signs of heat stroke

Our suking ice cream vendor doesn’t look well when he handed me the ice cream I bought from him the other day. He appeared slightly pale, perspiring and exhausted. I told him to take a rest in the shade of the mango tree in front of our house. He told me that he almost fainted the other day, but tried hard not to fall from where he was standing because he was afraid there wouldn’t be anyone to help him. Poor manong. He stopped for a while but continue pushing his cart to offer ice cream to the potential clients nearby.

So, what are the warning signs of heat stroke? Even when we are in the confines of our own homes, we are not spared from heat stroke.

Heat stroke usually starts with signs of heat exhaustion:

  • Warm, flushed skin
  • Faintness
  • Dizziness
  • Weakness
  • Very high fever of 41 degrees centigrade
  • Headache
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Convulsion
  • Unconsciousness

What should we do to prevent heat stroke:

  • Limit the amount of time you spend outdoors.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Avoid tea, coffee, soda, and alcohol
  • Wear a wide-brimmed hat and long-sleeved clothing when outdoors.
  • Schedule heavy-duty activities for the beginning or end of the day, when it’s cooler.
