27…going on 29. C that is, Rather hot


It was hot yesterday and even hotter today….so it was up and out to the try and make the most of the cool of the day.   Down by the lake and through the wood was just the ticket.

I don’t think I can recall a summer that has been so lush and green..


Boris….. Our man of  inaction, who some call Prime Minister, made one of his memorable  speeches….  “we are out of hibernation” …..   as he kept thumping the Parliamentary Despatch Box.   Maybe he should be a little more in touch with what is actually going on.  There is a very significant minority who have believed lockdown ended weeks ago* and as for Social Distancing, they haven’t a clue.   Trouble is everybody is not only at risk but also having to clear up the constant mess from their social gathering in the park…

Rather ironic as this beer was called Corona.

As Boris stated last night …  the solution is to exercise common sense!….. problem solved

  • you can pinpoint the day Lockdown ended to when he made one of his other off the cuff statements…. get in your cars, drive to the Beaches, drive to the Countryside,  and what a chaotic weekend that was

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other

  1. Indeed! I take it’s shadow temperatures you are talking about?
    We are experiencing the very same weather over here. Puh! And – if I’m well informed, it will be just the same tomorrow! (This message is sent from my basement office! 😉 )


  2. Gorgeous photos, David. It’s going up to 34C here tomorrow. I’d love to get out of Florida, but because we have our very own Buffoon in charge of the covid 🦠 , it looks like no country will want us visiting. 😱

    1. We could get 30c today, which for us is HOT. It is strange that at our global hour of need, when we do really need cool heads to see us all through …. that we have such buffoons running the show. Our pet Buffoon is taking lessons from Trump….even his hand gestures are looking more Trump like. How did they mange to con so many folk into voting for them.

  3. Beautiful photographs dear David. The colours of nature and how you caught the light, they are all fascinating… It is really ironic “corona”… it has already been ironic with itself ( meaning and what it makes)… I can’t believe… I can’t believe today’s world… where are the rational thoughts, decisions and actions… seems that the world totally going (doing) wrong… maybe we can’t see the most important part that they act like that… In here it is same… there are some points, coronavirus still rising up and killing people, people between measures and freedom getting confused, government only thinks the economy of the country… no one listen to us… or doesn’t want to listen to us… But if you lose people how would economy work… I can’t understand anything anymore… Anyway dear David, Thank you and be saaferful stay safe, Love, nia

  4. Oh my goodness, all that GREEN! So gorgeous and lush. Gazing at those lovely photos almost makes us forget what craziness is going on in the world – almost. As for as people using common sense, I fear that doesn’t exist much in way too many people.
