ronzo56: Gordon-Sounds like a plan. Read recently that a NASA scientist says if we don't cut back even more all our water storage reservoirs will be dry by next summer. I just don't understand why they don't declare an emergency and put a round the clock effort to Jul 5, 2015 17:25:53 GMT
ronzo56: build desalination plants. California has had 25 year long droughts in the past. And at least one small town has no running water. They are trucking it in. You pick it up in 55 gallon barrels. And food prices are going up. Paid over 3 pounds for Jul 5, 2015 17:42:14 GMT
ronzo56: a watermelon yesterday. Only the size of a soccer (football) ball too. And it was on sale. Or you and I can do a deal. I send you some really good wine, I only live 90 minutes away from the Napa Valley, and you send me some really good Scotch. ;) Jul 5, 2015 17:49:27 GMT
ronzo56: I passed the test! How can that be? Jul 5, 2015 17:53:38 GMT
solrighal: Whisky for wine doesn't sound like a good deal & you can't live off whisky. I know, I've tried. Just polished off a bottle this afternoon as we pottered in the garden ;) Jul 5, 2015 18:48:54 GMT
solrighal: I also passed that test so I'm not sure as to it's efficacy. Jul 5, 2015 18:49:15 GMT
ronzo56: Yeah, I think the test is a little suspect. That 17kHz ringtone that was popular with teens a few years back. I couldn't hear it. I could feel it. Gave me a headache. Jul 5, 2015 20:12:38 GMT
ronzo56: As to the wine. I can get Napa wines that you can only buy at the winery. The special reserve stuff. I have a bottle in the cooler I bought last summer. It's for our 30th anniversary coming up soon. If I sent you a bottle.. taxes?? VAT?? Jul 5, 2015 20:15:47 GMT
solrighal: Check out this guy's commentary.. Jul 6, 2015 1:38:50 GMT

Javier: On my way back from work I saw 44ºC in the car's outside temp display... Jul 6, 2015 16:01:14 GMT
jellofund: :o . That's hot!! Hottest temp ever recorded in Scotland: 32.9 °C. Jul 6, 2015 17:13:39 GMT
Javier: yep, even for Spain it is hot. It is now 20:30 and still 39ºC, I hope it cools down a bit tonight Jul 6, 2015 18:33:34 GMT
Rabbit: I wouldn't be able to move in that kind of temperature. Jul 6, 2015 19:45:39 GMT
