I don't know... And I can't really ask Brigham Young... We usually just say Salt Lake, rarely do I hear anyone say Salt Lake City, and technically the lake is The Great Salt Lake, so it makes no sense at all...

So even people who live there are confused?

No, it doesn't make any sense. Its like saying San Francisco City and San Francisco Bay. Or Monterey Bay and Monterey City. WTF?

Its hot and dry out (90 degrees and 35%). We went to a car show this morning and now we are going shooting. It will be a short day on the range.

We just played for an hour and a half. It was too long in the heat and now I'm nauseous with a headache.

We went shooting for about an hour and a half. Some of the neighbors came over, one brought his 9-year old son and he shot a .22 for the first time while his dad shot an AR for the first time. Nearly drowned in our own sweat. Nice cool shower and glass of water and now I feel normal again.

I wish we were shooting instead of running around a tennis court. I had fun though.

I've never played tennis. I've shot a few tennis balls though.
