It is that time of year again. Summer Time. If you are part of the Utilicom Safety Family then you live in a hot climate. Fluids, fluids, fluids. Drink water or sports drinks as often as you can. But don't rely only on the sports drinks. Water is really that best thing for you. Your urine should be clear with a slight yellow hue to it at the end of the day. I say it every year, because it is true. It your urine is dark (a little smelly too) then your getting dehydrated. Drink more fluids. Watch your high calorie and fatty foods in the summer also (well really all the time). If you partake of alcohol, make sure you drink the equal amount of water the next day on top of what you should already be drinking. Heat exhaustion and heat stroke are not laughing matters, they are serious medical conditions. Don't forget your sun block and hat either. Long sleeved shirts and bug repellent should also be worn. And if you have any money left over after all that, buy some gas and try to get to work. Side Note-Get ready for some opinion: If you haven't gone to see the movie by Ben Stein called EXPELLED, No Intelligence Allowed, then you really owe it to yourself to go. If you are a lover of free speech, if you agree with the scientific approach to questioning the known and the accepted, if you agree with freedom and the unhindered exchange of ideas (especially in our colleges and universities), then you must see this movie. It is upsetting, scary, enlightening, and a necessary that you see this film. If you see it, write me back in the comments portion and let me know what you think.

If you haven't already seen the announcement for the OSHA 10 Hr. Outreach Training put on by NTCA in June, go to their website and check it out (I'll be doing the training). If you can't make it to Dallas in June, then don't worry, because Telcom Ins. Group and I (Utilicom Safety) are going to bring the class to a location near you. So be on the look out for our OSHA 10 Hr. "Rapp Session" Texas Tour (Arizona too). We are going to create clusters in Texas, i.e. North West Texas, West Texas, South Texas, Central Texas, South East and East. We are also going to have an Arizona Cluster near Phoenix. I am still waiting for some slogans, so y'all get busy.
