And now we are three.
In true British style let's start with the weather. Around 30C for ten days or so now, and unusually the hottest places have not been in the south east, but in our neck of the woods, the north west and north Wales. Needless to say I'm on the verge of going crazy with the heat. Roll on October.

We have reached 100F plus all this week.  If it weren't for fudgesicles I just don't think I could survive.

Worse still is the lack of rain; everywhere grass is now brown and crops are struggling. There's talk of a hosepipe ban in some areas.

We had a lot of rain week before last but none for a while now.  By August we will be on water restriction -- it happens every year.  It's the same as what you call a hosepipe ban.  No washing cars, no watering lawns or gardens.  The only thing allowed is watering house plants.

Speaking of rain, the monsoon season is coming to Thailand and the hope of getting that soccer team out of the cave seems to be dwindling.

Too much rain in Thailand and Japan, not enough where we want it. Our water restrictions begin with a ban on hosepipes and sprinklers to water the garden, then it extends to a ban on washing the car etc. Ultimately it could lead to restricted supplies to industry with priority given to households, but over here rain will come before too long.

We've had a very rainy spring and quite a bit of flash flooding.  When that happens, not enough of the water seeps into the ground but rather runs off.

Six of the soccer team boys have been brought out of the cave.

To date, eight of the 13 trapped in the cave have been brought out.  They brought out the healthiest ones first, so I hope the others are ok.

I hope the coach doesn't face any charges.  The rescue successes around the world have astounded me.  Remember those guys trapped in a mine in Chili?  I sure didn't think they would get them out, but they did.

Well, President Trump has made his second nomination for the Supreme Court upcoming vacancy.  His name is Brett Kavanaugh.  He is currently a federal court judge in the District of Columbia.  Like Neil Gorsuch, Judge Kavanaugh clerked for Justice Kennedy (the one who is retiring).  And like Justice Gorsuch, Judge Kavanaugh is a textualist.  I really like that.  I think he will be confirmed pretty quick.

I don't think so, Major.  The republicans are still in control of the Senate.  They will put Judge Kavanaugh through hell first, but they will confirm him.

 You pussy's don't know what hot weather is. Try 48C with the humidity throw in. The very hot weather followed us through Quebec, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia. 70 seniors in Quebec died from the heat when they were experiencing  power outages here.

a ban on hosepipes. Do you mean garden hoses Mark??

My hibiscus plants are loving this weather if nothing else is. I came home to burnt brown lawns.

She tends to get into shape before concerts, so I'm expecting a trim, if more mature Britney.

You can't use the photo bucket icon from our site but have you go directly to the photo bucket site and then copy it like I mentioned. You first have to download your picture that you want to post to the site on photo bucket.

As you know, I visited San Fransisco a few years ago. I was only there for two nights and three days and I thought it was great. I must say, a day of it was spent outside the city, looking at the Redwoods and getting pissed at the various vineyards on the way. Naturally I spent my time at the famous pier and we only skirted the main city but I can't say I saw any of the underlife that infests the place right now. I was watching a programme on the city and was shocked at speed the place is deteriorating, which is wholly due to the screaming lunatics of the left, who have taken over the asylum. Crime there is higher than 92% of the rest of the USA, fuelled by a drug dependency culture which the authorities encourage and actually subsidise by supplying....wait for it..... 400,000 syringes a month and paying for indoor injection shops. Naturally, all those responsible citizens are keen to recycle their syringes, and recycle them to the streets, where thousands of them lie and armies of government employees roam around picking them up for them. Thousands of these turds frequent many areas of the downtown along with their actual turds, as thousands of them are openly shitting in the streets and as not a one of them has ever been prosecuted, it's not going to stop. Never mind, more jobs created, real jobs, as the left likes to call them. I hear such unbelievable statistics like these and you have to wonder why the left are never concerned by them. For instance, it said that the state government spends an average of $46,000 on every homeless person annually. They are now going to let illegal immigrants have the vote too. You have to wonder.

 Why does it do that? Two postings of the same article? That's twice (forgive the pun) it's done that to me. I don't know about you but when I want to do a posting, I go to another posting of one of you, click on quote and reply, delete the posting, so I can then enlarge the font and do a post. Does anybody know how to delete a post? I press delete and the screen dims but sod all happens.

My first attempt at "Romanovs in North Staffordshire" went the same way. After I'd spent ages typing it out it came up with a message that I wasn't logged in, but I had to be to start a new thread!  
When using the quote and reply facility I simply type my message underneath the original, the font can be changed without deleting anything.
