Did you know?
The Dog Days have to do with the ancient study of the stars. The Greeks determined the Dog Star looked to be "following" the constellation, Orion, during a certain period each year. This period coincided with the hottest, most uncomfortable part of summer in the Northern Hemisphere. In modern times, these days have been determined to be from about July 30 to September 7.

WELCOME to Challenge #7 - Bring on the Troubles!
