    Perhaps subconsciously inspired by Beirut?

    We were in Lidl by 0800 this am doing our weekly shopping.
    But temp near to 20C by 0800, will peak at 27 today!
    Which is outside my designed range of operation of 20 deg C + or - 2 degrees!

    I am really sorry for you guys down south in your heat wave.

    Good Afternoon Ladies and Gentlemen and all who are now shielding from the big yellow fusion reactor nearby, just remember 93 million miles is nearby in interstellar distancing.
    An interesting 6.8 this morning.

    My pals chaos and mayhem have been missing for some time, they are up to something. I wonder if they will let me join in, I do hope so.
    Well fellow posters and painters, my body system is in shock Mrs J has cut my hair and trimmed my beard, so I have gone from being a long haired bearded old man on a motorcycle to looking like a thug on a motorcycle.
    I hope you all manage to stay " cool ", hydrated and safe, it now appears B & Q, McDonalds and pubs are dens of covid if you read the media. Best avoid the media.

    It is 29C here.
    I have come back indoors with cat.
    Cat is disgusted because I have wrapped him in a wet towel...
    He is a wee bit vocal...
    I am on my 4th change of clothes today...
    The butterflies think this heat is amazing and are flocking to my garden...

    'Mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun' SIL and I did our bit to hold up what is expected of us British. Three and a half hours 35 miles through tropical Cannock Chase, my all singing all dancing cycling watch said it's only 71% humidity and 29 degrees. So am I any lighter, not a bit of it, 1lb heavier than when I started.:banghead:

    @ianpspurs Good news on the sample front.

    @gennepher best sort of art, just let it happen and in this case to great effect.

    Hi Alf,
    Only found out last week but we are apparently very fortunate. Our yellow dwarf is one of the most stable in our galaxy, the vast majority are highly unstable and would not be helpful to life as we know it.

    Really need to get a grip, stop evening snacking.
    Cooler today but MrSlim is looking exhausted after two full days working in the intense heat. 39.5c!!!
    He hired an electrician to help out. The man didnt quite finish the job, which was a bit annoying, esp as he arrived significantly late both days, saying we are impossible to find by sat nav.
    Then this morning MrSlim gets a message saying some of the wiring he put in is non compliant to French rules.
    So now MrSlim is ripping out cabling he paid this man to put in yesterday. Grrr.
    The wiring needs to be finished, along with some other tasks, by monday, when Handy Andy will be returning.

    Can't think why they don't care if we never produce anything anymore!?
    Perhaps they all like keeping their hands clean?

    I usually like a good pun and am always up for poking fun at the current shower failing to run the show but what clownshoe grates Stilton? Makes a mockery of the article and redeems the ridiculous woman.

    Currently 33+ here. A tad warm but at least I don't need layer after layer of clothes, socks:banghead:, heating, windows and doors closed or Julie wanting cooked food.:bigtears: Best of all, I can sleep with no clothes or covers :woot::woot:- my sleep scores are so much better with the "mild" weather lately. I am really sorry for those who don't like the heat but >80%+ of the year's weather here is wholly sub-optimal for me and drives my issues with LCHF. Salad is good - it's the cooked food:bigtears::bigtears:

    Pleased you can sleep Ian.
    What with a long history from prostate cancer and a Conn's adrenal adenoma that produces 20x the normal amount of aldosterone, I am up and down to pee all night! :)
    So I get to listen to the world service more than most, but the problem is when an interesting science programme comes on I go to sleep!

    I have just been out in it...wasn't given a choice. I was putting the wheelie and recycle out on a hot sunny day, but before I could turn around, I was in the middle of torrential rain. At least I won't have to wash this set of clothes, nor go to the car wash 'cos it is sparkling clean now...

    Another update saying amber warning until midnight

    I have had to disconnect, to take my speech processor off, this constant thunder and lightning is causing the magnet in my head grief.

    Fbg of 3.6 this morning to low felt groggy but still went for a walk this afternoon temperature about 31 degrees C too hot was not sure of getting home with out assistance but thanks to the multiple numbers of benches in the park managed about four kilometres may not sound a lot but for me a minor miracle.

    There seems to be wickan Wreaths appearing all over the park of late.

    But this was a nice shady path.

    cool path2.jpg

    So despite the heat exhaustion enjoyed the walk.

    After mornings ride the afternoon was spent at the local wildlife centre this time with my youngest granddaughter, magical.

    So rushed to do some more on my watercolur, the yellow wash background now's got some detail forming. This is the roots of a local Beech tree combined with a forest photograph I liked on the internet. Most unlike me to resort to others images but first time for everything and it's a good photo whoever took it...
    A4 watercolour will finish Thursday...
