  1. Past hour
  2. A mostly cloudy afternoon, albeit the odd sunny spell, followed a sunny morning. Managed to reach 23.7°C @ 14:23 Currently 21.4°C RH @ 44%
  3. Ooohh, pretty sure that was a roll of thunder (I suppose it could have been someone bringing in the bins). I was pointing out the mammatus clouds covering the sky to my son on the return college run, saying we 'might' get a bit of a storm if we're lucky. I'm counting that one!
  4. Came across this channel a few years back when he was creating his own mine in the US, this video recently popped into my subscription box. He talks about the science behind why you can hear thunder underground before you can hear it through the air, really interesting topic.
  5. What an fantastic week of weather high teens/ low twenties plenty of warm sun not to hot and an nice breeze perfect.

  7. Some sort of waxed paper. I think there’s a lot of new composite materials coming into existence which will do the job quite adequately. Don’t think recycled plastics are the answer, they still gradually breakdown with each use and it’s the micro plastic pieces which we can’t keep from getting into the water sources that cause the big problems
  8. Although the were no cygnets again this year all of the large brood of Mallards appear to have survived intact which is a tad unusual
  9. even cheese can win when its done well...
  10. It's turned out fairly warm in some parts of Scotland today, mostly east coast type areas:
  11. this was imho a deserved winner... it had all the ingredients... energy, novelty, folky, melody... exactly what a good euro track should have.
  12. I agree, if they're going to take action they need to sort the lot out at the same time, although I'm not sure what they could replace plastic lids with, plastics are 1000 years to decompose and the equivalent, polystyrene can take much much longer.
  13. obviously it didnt live up to its title, a waterman track wasnt it... dreadful...
  14. I’m predicting an average to poor summer, then a mini heatwave in September for a couple of weeks, similar to 1985, or 1995, with warm days in early October. This will be a precursor to a cold winter.
  15. Bought a cantilever parasol pour Le Jardin yesterday at Argos - it was made in China; our garden furniture cover is Chinese made; a set of tables we have in da house is Chinese made; the list of Chinese-made household goods goes on....and will continue to go on... I'm afraid that particular horse has long bolted.
  16. No thanks. I don’t think about the evenings drawing in until mid August at the earliest, and even then I don’t think about autumn or the decline into winter until September 1st, when I finally accept the best part of the year is behind us, in terms of daylight and warmth. Not knocking September, as that’s usually a good time to have a holiday in Spain or wherever, but I want to be able to enjoy the summer for what it is, without people hinting about the darkness arriving. September will be here before you know it, so best to try and enjoy the summer while it’s with us.
  17. Today

  20. The plastic straw thing is a farce. It’ll take 4 years to do that and then another 4 years to ban plastic lids or something.
