  • Global Warming? Bring It On!

    It's very warm today. As I type, the temperature is 35C (95F) and the weather forecasters are predicting that a new record high could be set later today. The current record stands at 38.1C (100.6F) and was set in 2003.

    Who says global warming is all bad? If it brings mediterranean summers to the UK, then I'm all in favor of it. Mind, the temperatures were once much higher than now - there are records of Roman vineyards as far north as the Scottish borders.

    Man, that hot!

    I must say, Gill, those temps are quite warm even for here in Florida. When I lived in the UK I remember people passing out in the streets when the temperature reached 70F (21C). Wow, what a difference. Hope you stay cool.

    We have friends living in Manchester that just went back to live during the hot summers over here. Ha, what a surprise they have!

            Jump Day

            I know global warming is affecting the entire world.
            Several university profeesors have concluded that if 500 million people jump at the same time in the same hemisphere that we can change the orbit of the earth and therefor correct global warming.

            Today is the official "Jump Day"

                is doing great in therapy. His range of motion is about 3 weeks ahead of where they expected him to be. He has zero strength in his hand or arm. He tried to grate some cheese, and he couldn’t hold the grater. The doctor had to do repair stitching on the muscle and that will take the longest to heal....

                When we started out, it was 45 deg and rain. When we got there it was 44 deg and rain. By the time we left it stopped raining but was 42 deg. and windy. Luckily we are under cover but that doesn’t stop the wind. I sold 4 baskets, Sealife puzzle and a few other things. I moved the coffee grinders...
