Okay okay okay I get the message message ,eeerrrrrmmmmm getting old is no fun I think think ,yep as I posted about me and modern technology we don't seem to work as a  team . Being in duty free in Frankfurt Jamie's is at a reasonable price compared to Ireland ,in fact the vino collapso in Aldi was less than £2 or 3 euro and after a bottle or two it stops tasting like vinegar .......one thing though in the week we were in Germany it didn't rain and for the first time in 20 years at Christmas there was no frost /snow ,must be all the hot air from Syrian migrants waiting bus tickets to the UK .....Bob& Liz and all my friends of days of old ,Have a great New Year hope you and yours a prosperous 2016 ........now Riley press Reply only once ...........

Do not worry folks, Cameron will be issuing life jackets and wellies to all subjects soon, (-his only response to more water covering this land of ours which will soon be far in excess of the amount in the North Sea and the North Atlantic....) And if and when the rain stops we will all be able to swim to work, school or wherever throughout the next 500 years at the rate Cameron responds. Also we will all be entitled to a cup of hot tea or coffee once a month.....Or our residents will be allowed to go to school, work or the pub in our personal submarines.... or an aqualung each!!! Keep Smiling Folks!!

We (here in the Staffordshire Moorlands) actually had a DRY day last Wednesday - I cleaned the bungalow windows - what a total waste of time that turned out to be !! It's lashed down ever since, still doing so now (Saturday), Grrrrr. Don't think I've ever known such a prolonged period of rain, those poor souls further North (Lancs, Yorks, Cumbria & now Aberdeen) have suffered far worse than we have here, so God knows how they must be feeling. Still, as long as "Sunny Bob" is enjoying Goa that's what really matters !! But don't forget Bob, you've got to return to the Emerald Isle soon enough, which ain't exactly renowned for it's sun shine, so keep those wellies handy ! John (JKW)

So though I posted this discussion last year'ish ,and the last post on the lousy weather we've had was on Jan 9th this winter, we are now in the month of May 2016 . I've been in 2 countries over the last 14 days and been on the wrong end of the "global warming weather" ,Monday last week picking my youngest granddaughter from her school we had snow,hailstones and blue skies and sunshine all in a matter of 15 minutes . On returning to Ireland the same only we had "thunder and lightning " in the mix , temperatures dropping below zero most nights and in the single figures during the day , the last time I experienced weather conditions like/similar to this was in basic training at Catterick 1962/3 winter , then there was no such thing as "global warming " or extra tax's on utility bills to economise use . Your asking were am I going with this new post ,look what has happened over the 50 odd years ,we have now the most expensive electric/gas bills ( causing making steel in Britain un economic ) making household utility bills horrendous to the average family . The only bright light for Mr Average is that the tax on a motor in some cases is nil ,but next year the government is bringing in a new tax regime on the car,making up for going "green" ,you'd think with the tax they have on fuel would be enough ? So going back to this weather I've had reports from all over the British Isles on winter like conditions and my son from Frankfurt has "what apps " pictures of snow less than 3 days ago , if this is "global warming " just hope they don't have " global cold " on the horizon !!!!

The Daily Mirror is saying we'll be enjoying a mini heatwave by the end of this week !! If it was in "The Scum" I'd say they were LIARS, again ! John (JKW)

JKW, have you been on the jungle juice again??? Heat waves??? The very thought makes me want to get all the thermal clothes out again, cos if the weather men/women say "heat wave" it invariably means the opposite.  I am sure that the weather knows what the forecasters say, and then THESE weather gurus  do the opposite just to annoy us again. Something now which is nothing to do with your topic... I have the distinct belief that I have got a book you lent me ages ago, which I have found in my spare room, called "Great battles of WW2" or similar. If it is yours, I will get it to you some way.

Tom, Not my book, I just hope you didn't get it from the local library 'cos the over due fine will be more than your pension !! Bob - Don't need that book (50 Shades of Rain) because we've got MORE than bloody 50 shades of it here right now !! John (JKW)
