    modern music is crap?..... ive been hearing that since the late 60's... previous generations berating their successors is nothing new. and your favoured period was berated by older people too. but in saying that, i do think the musical landscape has changed, and like comedy theres nothing new and cutting edge coming through. wheres this generations lennon? lydon? bush? morrissey? and loads more... i think years of daft leftish education (and im left of centre) has emasculated a generation. the snowflakes. scared to offend, indoctrinated that everyone is equal and not to upset anyone. whilst everyone should have equal opertunity, we are not equal. some are better sportsmen, others better at academia etc. would any of our rich and varied musical movement have ever been created if people were scared to offend?.. isnt rebelling, having an opinion, creating something new , part of the creation of our youth movements? how could rock n roll ever happened if people were scared of the offence their music created? let along punk! lol.

    yes theres a vid on comedy ..... comedy is dead. its all safe smart arsed panel shows now, people are too scared to offend. you couldnt even make father ted nowdays.. modern comedy is dead...its trite, unoriginal, safe and worst of all unfunny....yet leftists reckon comedy doesnt have to be funny.. tv drama though is arguably the best ever... even the remake of poldark is better then the original (thats rare for me to say). dramas on netflix like 'power' are superb! so many angles, plots and subplots, just like a 'film noir' featuring bogart.

    no mention of fenella fielding?... are you waiting to make sure? lol
  12. i think another factor we need to take into account is the likelyhood that the climate might have been different, warmer in fact. we know it was in roman times. its possible that if it was warmer, plants/nature would be further in advance then what we are used to today.
  13. its much older then that though, and fits perfectly with the pagan definitions, midsummers day is the mid point between beltane and Lughnasadh likewise mid winters day .

    What did you think of Summer 2018?

    eh?.... is it?.... really?.... the first 5 days of august were widespread hot and sunny and dry... ive not had 1 day in september that hit 'hot', (25c+) . september has been average at best for the first 11 days... disappointing for a lot of the time.
  16. completely agree, thats the timing the anglo saxons used and its their words we use for the seasons.... and it explains why 'midsummers day' is june 24th... its clearly not summer like today, nor is it going to be, and for most of us its not been summer like for a while apart from a few odd days here and there (obvs the favoured southeast might disagree). my 'memories' on facebook reveal that my daily weather blogs over the last several years too also talk of autumnal weather. 'nice' septembers with sunshine and heat are rarer then one would imagine. ps... isnt beltane april 30th?..

    What did you think of Summer 2018?

    completely agree, especially about 75 being overshadowed by 76, but in part 76's success (if you can call it that) was due to 75 hot summer with little rain and the following winter was pretty dry too. the drought of 76 was actually the drought of 75, 76.

    What did you think of Summer 2018?

    really?... you young then?...lol.. i can only go on grass growth, as that affects my income directly. the last time i had lost so much was 2003.. and that lasted into autumn . before that was 95... but i lost in 90 and 91 too . before that its the usual suspects - 75-6, 83-4, . 79 was dry too in summer but not hot.

    What did you think of Summer 2018?

    but 2014 wasnt a 'good' summer... it wasnt even average... and july wasnt 'hot'.. it was 23rd warmest according to reefs post above.. way behind others. and 26th according to the manchester data
  22. disappointed those phantom southeasterlies that some had predicted arent coming to fuition..
  23. indeed, we had hotter days in 2015 for eg.. or should that be 'day'?..
