NASA got theirs to the moon and back. Meantime, back on planet earth, we fettled ours so that they ran beyond their projected redundancy date of '95 to 2000. One of them ran continuously for eighteen months until we had to bring it down for an upgrade.

No water-coolers in our office. :)

We had solid sunshine in Galston for most the day, wee drop rain in the morn'. Then I went to Killie and all three weeks fell in 20minutes. Nice a bright just now, tomorrow looking promising

We have had warm days but odd bursts of thunder and heavy rain.
No lightning that I have noticed.

Never know what to put on my feet this weather.
May start out in a pair of sandals but later in day could be wearing my winter boots.

Thanks for the link couldn't remember that guys name.
It's a wonder he survived so long after all he went through.

This was a bit of a sad tale but some people just don't think.

I see the owners of the two Shar Peis that nearly boiled only got fined £400. Bet they breathed a sigh of relief at that one - Shar Pei's go for the best part of a grand, so to replace two 8O . That's designer dog owners for you though, all look and no sense.

how long will it be till a child is left in a car?

my last dog syndi was a black lab and for her being black she loved to lie in the sun, any bit of sun in the garden and she would be there, my mum did put a white t-shirt on her if she sitting in the sun after about 11

It was silly warm today. Where's all the thunder and lightning I was promised though? Dammit.
