'I Live For The Sun' — The Sunrays

I've loved this song since the first time I heard it in Milwaukee in July of 1965.

My favorite of the many versions on YouTube is the one up top, from when they appeared on the weekly ABC show "Shivaree," hosted by Gene Weed.

They sound a little like the Beach Boys and a bit like "Jan &  Dean."

FunFact: They toured the U.S. and Canada and opened for the Beach Boys.

A look behind the scenes

Behind the scenes at boj

Above, a look at my search history yesterday afternoon while I was composing this morning's PHOOZY post.

Note that it took 39 minutes to visit 31 URLs/screenviews to produce the finished entry.

This is fairly typical; however, the time required to create a post can be anywhere from one minute to two hours (!).

It still amazes me how much I enjoy making boj, considering I hated being assigned papers and reports when I was in school.

It's all about coercion.

There's no limit to what I'm happy to do when I want to do it.

PHOOZY Apollo Case

Screen Shot 2021-11-17 at 2.38.43 PM

Did Whoopi Goldberg name this?

From websites:

PHOOZY's Apollo cases incorporate spacesuit technology, with protection from the brand's patented Chromium Thermal Barrier.

Adapted from NASA tech, the barrier prevents overheating in the sun and extends battery life in the cold.

These cases deflect up to 90% of the sun's heat to maintain a safe operating temperature.

The inner layer insulates devices in cold environments, enabling up to 4x longer battery life than that of an uninsulated device.

In addition to heat management, PHOOZY cases are designed to be climate-proof, germ-proof, drop-proof, fully water-resistant, and they float with your device protected within — handling extreme conditions of any kind.
