Summer has arrived

Unless you live underground you can’t help but notice that summer has arrived in the UK with the temperature just over 30c on both Sunday and Monday.

This of course means that the natives have something new to moan about, and that is that it’s too hot!!

Those reading this from outside the UK need to realise that generally the weather rates as the top discussion subject in this part of the world.

It’s never just right it’s either too hot, too cold, too dry, too wet or too unpredictable. As I said it’s never just right.

The news programmes show people sunbathing in the park, the beach or in their own back garden, supposedly enjoying the weather. If this is the case then why do we moan about it so much?

Personally I would rather have it cold than hot, Sunday and Monday were unbearable, and very little work got done. How I coped years ago when I had three desktops complete with CRT monitors churning out heat 24/7 I don’t know. I do remember that in the winter the office did not need the radiator on when it was cold, and that I could feel the warmth when I used to open the door first thing in the morning.

That’s all changed not I have two laptops on and they run cool as does my NAS box and my routers. so I will finish this ramble here and get back to doing some proper work whilst the gentle breeze wafts through the open window. Bliss!!!

Just two days to go.

Here the tension is rising, we are just two days away from voting day for the General Election.

All the main parties are blaming each other for anything they can think of and up in Scotland the SDP are banging on about independence, if it was set to music most would say it’s the only tune they know.

Elsewhere of course we have had the two terrible terrorist attacks, one in Manchester and one in London. Again much talking and blame slinging especially reference the London attack, but nothing really concrete, except a few barriers to stop vehicles mounting the pavements over some London Bridges.

On the home front, I have a new 13.3″ MacBook PRO which I am really pleased with, still have the old one as well, actually I am using it for this post, but the bulk of the everyday stuff, especially my writing will be done on the new machine. I plan at some stage in the not too distant future to do a comparison review of the two machines side by side, so watch this space as they say.

Finally here we are writing this watching high winds and driving rain out of the window, it’s like autumn but warmer! Only just mind you. I pity the poor souls at the coast in caravans today. It can’t be nice to save money and take a holiday and be landed with weather like this.
