    Wonderful! Windows open and breeze throughout the house. Feel human again.

    Makes me think if I get sick and they give me forced oxygen breathing, I'll be in my element.

    Surprisingly chilly, despite claims of 18°. Rained mid afternoon, luckily dry for ride home. Saw lots more seals today than usual. 3 or 4 is usually the upper limit. Were at least 7 here and another 3 just along on the next rocks.

    That's surreal! Took me a moment to see them. :)

    It has been hitting up to 42°C on my top patio in the early afternoon recently, despite being well shaded under good sun umbrellas. The hottest room in the house is the kitchen as it has a south-ish facing wall, and cooking anything tends to make the kitchen unbearably hot. Solution - I have started cooking, using my halogen cooker, on the patio table - a real win-win! The kitchen stays at a sensible temperature and the food gets cooked using less electricity. I am currently baking my usual two pounder scone and the thermostat light is much less busy than it normally is.

    What could be greener than that? :D

    This is a weather-related posting from my brother:

    The Archbishop of Canterbury and the Royal Commission of Political Correctness announced today that the climate in the UK should no longer be referred to as 'English Weather' as this might offend a sizeable portion of the non-Christian UK population.

    As a consequence, the forecast for today is as follows ...
    Mostly Sunni, but in a few areas, Shi'ite.

    Just heard a tiny rumble of thunder. Hopefully more to come.

    Wet. Not cold. No thunder and doesn't look like it.

    Thanks, Adrian. Just arrived at Bin Laden's cave but the other occupants have locked the door and demanded I 'Go Away'.

    I saw a cloud this afternoon! No, really - a proper cloud. No bullshit. You know - one of those white fluffy things that float around in the sky. I wasn't sure at first what it was, not having seen one for so long, but then I remembered all about them. :D

    More importantly, yesterday's peak of 43°C came down to a peak 38°C this afternoon. I just hope it's the end of the worst and longest heat wave I have known out here.

    Looking out of my window now I can see bright sunlight throwing shadows of the surrounding trees with rain falling as well
