Sunday 16 August

Today's weather is a lot better than yesterday's, with the sun out, a moderate breeze and (as yet) not rain. The radar shows rain moving away east. It's not often we get a full, 24 hour, dose of rain, contrary to the Western Isles' reputation - but it does happen.

A pharmacist from southern England has published an Open Letter to the Americans, with regard to the current debate on healthcare in the USA. All I can say is that I hope the current frank discussion that is taking place across the pond will result in a healthcare system that is fair, accessible and affordable to all. Including the 47 million who currently don't have that.


  1. Glad that your weather is better today Guido, hope you enjoyed your cuppa outside. I read that open letter, very good.

  2. Guido, I hope that many of our American friends as possible click on to that open letter that you refer to. It is excellent.
    Glad you have had the sunshine we have had it mainly dull here today with a strong wind (despite the lovely all day sunshine forecast !)
    i would find it realy facinating looking out for the various ships etc comming through. I know when we are in New Zealand it is one of the things I enjoy whilst staying at my friends the house overlooks the entrance to the harbour at Whangarie,
    Love Sybil x

  3. Awesome... thanks G! Will print it out for all the ignorant Americans I know!

    be well...
