Morning all. 

Winters there get pretty brutal. No power for a week or two sometimes.

Come the season when the rain gets a bit warmer....

This year had the wettest July since records began around 200 years ago - 140mm of rain instead of the usual 30 or so.

Have you been to Pistyll Rhaeadr in Wales? I went there with my other half last time I was in the UK. I was shocked that so very few people know about that waterfall (at least most of our friends from Nottingham didn't.. which I found strange), but it's such a beautiful place to visit. If you've not been there then it's definitely worth a visit. Smile

Good Morning all - some serious rain and wind here this morning - that is what we get when the weather is so mild - give me the cold crisp frosty mornings anytime.

Dieta tried coffee. Once!

I was travelling back home with her on the day I picked her up and after about 4 hours decided to stop for a break and a coffee at a friend's house. So we get our coffee and I put mine down by the sofa. Then I heard this slurping noise.

Then I saw something I'd never seen before - a dog spitting. Which went on for a while till she got the coffee taste out of her mouth.

Dieta does NOT like strong black coffee. Smile

I've never been in Wales - I must visit it some time.

Here's a panorama from the door of the place in the wilds. It's around 400 years old - the walls are a metre thick.

Been all over the flippin' USA, but never stepped foot across the border. I'd really like to get to Europe sometime before I die, but I bet I'll never make it.

And good morning TVF land!

Morning TW

The US has lower passport ownership than just about anywhere else that isn't dirt poor.

Probably because there is so much of everything in the US. There's less need to go abroad than almost anywhere else.

And most of the world is way more expensive anyway.

But that isn't just the US - 26 years ago I worked for 4 months on the island of Unst in the far north of the Shetlands. I met folk there who had never left the island.

During the early stages of the Iraq war, I nearly went to Iraq as a civilian contractor, but declined due to family responsibilities. Looking back, it seems a wise choice despite the boatloads of money that could have been made. That's as close to leaving the country as I've ever gotten. Well, almost had to go to Singapore for work once, but someone else got the call.
