Yes but 17oC in  March is like 100o in OZ Surly Dont you get fed up with the heat Its nice now and again. But when it comes so rarely here you can appreciate it. And Last Summer you had to for the FOUR DAYS of good weather we had.
There is no point in being fed up with the heat, its our way of life.  We do appreciate the cool days that we get now and again, we can go indoors if it gets too hot, everywhere has air conditioning.
How do you cope Brenda?  I guess you have to spend a lot of hot days outside, I don't know if I would like that.
Today is 26deg, sunny, not a cloud to be seen and a beautiful blue sky.  But the Fremantle Doctor came in quite early and later on it will turn chilly.

I don't cope with the heat very well these days, Pauline.  My tolerance has decreased as I've got older.  Yesterday, the cool spell was broken with a 33oC but today - thank goodness - it's been cool and grey and drizzly.  I can just about cope with a maximum of 25oC.  Anything above that and I don't feel well at all and turn into a terrible grump.

I'm in the outer suburbs of Perth, Western Australia.  Classified semi-rural, 7 acres.  About 2 acres is domesticated the rest is bush. Very peaceful and dark.  I sit outside with my telescope, and there is no light pollution at all.  The number of stars is mind blowing.  Not too much in the summer because the mozzies love me.

Hi Frank i see that you was born in Farnborough Hospital. Thats changed quite a bit, its now the Major Hospital in the Bromley area and its changed its name to "Princess Royal " or something like that. I am going to go on Google Earth to find you all.

What a lively addition to our forum you are, Splinter. 

I was born in Crutchley Road, Catford then we moved to Durham Hill, Downham when I was 4 years old.

I now live on 36acres in rural Victoria, Australia where we run a small herd of cattle, a small flock of sheep, make a bit of hay etc. Have lots of visiting kangaroos etc. and - like Pauline - far too many venomous snakes.  Nearest neighbour is 2 1/2kms away and it is wonderfully peaceful and I love it. Yet, like Dickie, Downham will always be 'home'.  Never been back though.
