Been a hot day

Very humid and 98F now going dark.  Sheet lightning every 4-5 seconds.  

Pretty intense.  Don't often get it like this.

Nature's light shows are awesome

98 is death weather in England.  Mid 80s is a heat wave there.

Or do you mean lightning?

I love a good light show. Too often I am at work, in a factory at night and miss out on them.



As a child, my Father would take us kids out on the front porch swing and we'd enjoy the storms. Midwestern Thunderstorms can be a little exciting.

There are molten Brits all over the place.  Knotted hankies and string vests on the fellas, semi naked girls and even the beer is in the fridge.  People are declining gravy on their fish and chips, and one bloke in Chadderton apparently had a salad.

Today broke the record for hottest day in July on record.

The heat is heavy though...really humid.  

Been in hotter places and we have had hotter days, but it's a really sticky day with very little breeze.

Yeah...my folks are in their mid 70's and have been feeling it.  Both pretty fit but it does seem to affect the olds a bit more.

Been checking on the elderly neighbours to make sure they are OK.

Had some storms pass thru last night and was awoken by some lightning so bright it looked like someone tossed a flashbang into my room.

It was crazy and had some awesome thunder with it, and the cats kept right on sleeping

I grew up in Florida, moved out to Colorado for 12 years, then moved back to Florida.



My wife is a Colorado native, as are her entire family.



Some of them came to visit us for 2 weeks in mid June.



Colorado has 'pretty good' thunderstorms, but they could not believe the amount of rain and lightning we get here in just 15 minutes, and they didn't even see what we consider a strong storm.

Prolly true.

The climate here is "polite".   Air conditioning is considered a luxury rather than a necessity.

Above 70F and most Brits want to bunk off work and go and lie under a lawn sprinkler.

Steady on old chap.

I like Greece.  Good holiday destination.

The problem with Greece is that the EU have tried to apply Northern European Economics to Southern European Lifestyles.  It hasn't worked.

The Greeks have always been the way they are.  It is what makes Greece such a popular destination for a holiday - the atmosphere is chilled and relaxed and the Greeks work on GMT "Greek Maybe Time".  The rat race of Northern European working life is forgotten when in Greece.

This was always the case.  The Greeks have made no secret of their economy and the state it is in.  The EU was prepared to gamble for it's own gain and has been burned as a result.

The issue comes in the expansionist policies of the EU and their desire to form a Socialist Federation.  They made an offer Greece could not refuse and positively encouraged Greece to sign up despite Greek reservations, but without joining the Greeks would have faced sanctions and lost revenue as the EU tightened its grasp in European Economics.

Basically the EU has done a National version of sub-prime mortgages.  Lending money knowing full well the risk was high, and now butting because the Greeks having been seduced by the sirens of Europe are now saying "Soz....but we ran out of money"

Lets direct the lightening to the Socialist headquarters of the EU.  That would be much more fitting.

That's just my opinion. FWIW

Oh yes....fantastic   In fact I'd probably never buy a younger version again.

If you get the chance I can recommend the Nadurra Oloroso Cask, Non-Chill filtered.

The batch No I got was OLO614 with a 60.7% alcohol by volume.   Needs water (obviously) but once you have the dilution down it is probably one of the best I have ever had for the money.
