    Lies. England doesn't have a hot/sunny season.


    It goes: cold, rain, cold with rain, snow, GOTO 1

    Was it the 'Hoff' or Shatner on HiGNFY who said 'What is it with this country, you get 2 winters!'

    [fictional someone] “When's England's rainy season?”

    Bill Bailey: “Well, that started around the 4th Century AD and has been going on ever since.”

    Oh goody, I'm going to be at Womad for a week. I would prefer it if the mud only came up to my ankles.

    I'm off diving off the Lundy coast. It would be nice if we didn't have to go from Ilfracombe to Lundy in a force 7 (again).

    We've had summer today. Bright sunshine to greet the Olympic Torch and Dame Kelly Holmes as the flame called into Tonbridge
    It wasn't the torch relay, but a stop arranged at the last minute after local resident, Dame Kelly, kicked up a fuss! The banners only went up yesterday.

    On clear day, if I go upstairs and stand by the window, I can see my wardrobe. Today, sadly, the visibility isn't as good.

    I've lowered my expectations to the point where a 'nice day' is a day on which it isn't raining very heavily.

    If I go upstairs, I can see my wardrobe whether it's raining or not! Can I suggest Specsavers?

    It was just a parody of "On a clear day I can see forever" to show how grim the weather is. Sometimes obscure things don't transfer well (especially from my imagination).

    As you were. We shall speak no more of this incident

    I'm actually enjoying the rain.... Albeit not the British rain you guys are enduring.
    It's been 30 degrees + for the last few weeks in New Brunswick, and it's just started raining here, bliss. Mind you, it's still 26 degrees with the rain.
    I'm enjoying it because I know it won't last... But rest assured come winter I'll be freezing my wee dangleberries off..

    Off to Wales with the Trailer tent on Saturday... So fine dry weather is a bonus.

    And it will give my Chilli , tomato, peper and pee plants a boost!!!

    NB... 73 Chilli/Pepper plants and counting... I am hedging by bets to get a reasonbable crop. Unfortunatly I lost track of what plant is what so I need to be careful of the scotch bonnets
