Hot hot hot

Here we are again

Sorry for the recent lack of postings.  I promise to try harder in future (well, maybe).

A few odds and ends from the last couple of weeks, then.

HeathFormer British prime minister Edward Heath died at the age of 89.  The obituaries all seemed to say the same thing - he was a grumpy old bloke who got Britain into the European Union and lost several elections.  The amazing thing was that someone with so little charisma or charm should have become prime minister.  The Economist found a splendid picture of Heath looking awkward and aloof (see right).

France seems to be suffering from a drought and a plague of locusts, they're sunbathing in the Arctic, and the UK is also short of water.

Cricket?  No, I don't seem to recall anything about that.
