The Past

The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

Keeping cool !!!

Today we have news of the Dept of Health's Heatwave Plan.

It would appear that we may expect temperatures this summer in the UK of 30C. ( 86 F. ) - hot for UK but not for Spain where the temperature often reaches 40 C.

We are advised to paint our houses white !!! 

Is this a plan, in our economic downturn, to regenerate the paint production industry?

This is one of the most peculiar ideas I've heard for a long time - UK architecture does not lend itself to being painted white.

Come winter to we have to repaint to red ??

Another idea in action !!!

Say it as it is ......

Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you'll land amongst the stars.

Look around !!!

What is this life, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare?
