      Gordon - I think you'll probably find 'the majority' away from weather forums would prefer summer weather in high summer.

  2. 5.8C and 100% cloud cover, was all this "cold"talk about ;^(

      We're actually in a ftost hollow here that I've seen one of the coldest spots in the country more than once despite being a few miles from the S. coast in Devon. It doesn't work when there's cloud and a breeze though, 5.9C here

      Most of the trees are bare or with brown/orange leaves now though.

      My condolences. It was the same at my dad's funeral. Beautiful sunshine in amongst 2 days of rain.

    3. wimblettben


      It was raining really heavily on my nans funeral.

    4. Upgrade


      my mum's "funeral weather" was astonishing. We went into the service in church in bright sunshine, and came out to a snowstorm and inches grew on the ground during the burial . very atmospheric and somehow appropriate.

  6. Ok so question of the day. Are ladybirds know to be blood suckers, as I watched two ladybirds today bite the [email protected] otta me and have good time, that was before the finger of god flicked them off. Usual, or not?

      We once had a swarm of ladybirds down south here and they were biting people then. Usually I think it is a sign they are hungry and try anything that moves! There has been a great increase in the red ones in the last week. before was mainly the harlequin ladybird.

      I was in Norfolk last year when they had the ladybird swarms, for someone who doesn't like flying insects (me!) it was horrific.

    4. Dorsetbred


      Interesting as for years I have considered them the gardeners friend, now the little bugg3rs are biting the gardener. Godamnit
