   Yeah...I reach that point at about 76-77 usually, but I'm "well 
insulated". :)

   I know what you mean about the humidity.  The only thing that keeps 
the humidity under control here is frequent short downpours.  If 
something weird happens and it doesn't rain for several days, it gets 
pretty seriously humid here.  Fortunately that doesn't happen very 
often.  It really makes even moderate heat unbearable.
