I think you are being too hard on Old Blighty, Steve.
UK has a beauty all its own and that beauty resides in a frame of mind.

Give it a trial run, live here for 5 years and keep a count of the nice sunny days. I bet (metaphorically speaking) it won't exceed 100 days. And what's more, we have all that Fosters to contend with not good enough for you Aussies so you export it to us Poms.

I think more accurate would be grey from late June all the way to early June..... Well, summer this year was two ridiculously hot weeks in June when the sun appeared, and that was pretty much it.

There's a great photo in "All About History" magazine this month - two page spread - of Anita Ekberg, in 1960, with a bow and arrows. She was being pestered by paparazzi, got her Robin Hood kit out, and started firing at them! Smashed one's camera, and hit one or two more. They apparently left her alone after that...... Now that I can relate to!

The subject matter here drifts so much that I have to keep returning to the start to remind myself what it is all about. This is very irritating!
