Sunday 26 July

After a grey and dreich start, the sun came through some two hours ago, making it fairly bright this afternoon. The mercury has jumped to 18C, making it a mild day.

It's a quiet Sunday as well, with more in the news following the death of WW1 veteran Harry Patch yesterday. Prime Minister Gordon Brown is talking of organising a commemorative service for all those who died as a result of the Great War.

Across in America, a cruiseship made an unusual entry into port, when it was discovered to have a 70 foot whale stuck on its bow. The marine mammal was dead, and it required two tugboats to prise it off the cruise liner.

  1. Sorry to hear of the passing of Mr Patch. Hemust have been of advanced age. My thanks to him for his service.
    I can't beleive I haven't heard about the cruise ship with the whale stuck to the bow. How did they not KNOW that??? Strange. I will have to look up the story.
    I don't know WHAT to think about the weather here. One day it is unbearably hot. It's not supposed to be humid in this part of the country but the humidity has been high for here. Then after a couple of hot days we will have much cooler & cloudy days with spotty rain showers. Much more like the weather we generally have in late May, early June. Global warming I suppose. Hope you had a great weekend.
