okay don't laugh.... I find that the right music can make it feel cooler, and I mean that seriously. Sometimes setting the right mood can make a small difference. Also, having fresh fruit on hand not only helps to keep hydrated but can lower the body temps, like watermelon and citruses and berries, pineapples, etc. The piggies like those berries and melons too ;)

You can find these articles on DIY sites where you pump water through tubes in front of a fan and use evaporative cooling to get some relief. I cobbled one together once and it worked pretty well. Not as good as a/c but a great deal better than just fans moving warm around back and forth.

@erick99 I like the water cooling idea, just like the cooling system for some computers! My only concern about a mist is that the humidity in my apartment usually stays 50% and up while I try to bring that down.
@bbattag I've considered it but my only hesitation is that there is a lot of greenery directly around my duplex and flies come in by the dozen, currently there are insect screens on every window.
Oh I see I see, the cool tubes cool the air around it and the air distributes that cool air. I'll have to do some more research on that before I dive in to it.
Much of the stuff I am looking for are things that will be able to function even while I am not home.
