We're not exactly sure where the phrase "dog days of summer" comes from. If we recall, it has something to do with the Egyptians. Or something about a constellation.

All we really know for sure is that, this time of year, it takes a lot to make a person feel like going out. But, if you're able to bolster up the motivation to get over the dog days doldrums. there is still plenty to do this week.

It takes more than a little heat to keep a city like Dallas down.
