    Today and for the first time in ages i experienced total silence, living next to a very busy road total silence is very rare but today i sat in my car in a secluded spot with the engine and the radio OFF, i held my breath and experienced TOTAL silence. It was bliss

    Then trade the lawnmower in for a leaf blower. We use one on the fake grass under our trampoline, so much easier.

    Not really. I was in Brighton on Saturday. It was 23 deg Celsius. Actually felt a little cold in the shade.

    I recall when I first went to Abu Dhabi for the first time about 7 years ago. I recall the driver meeting me at the airport and taking me to my hotel. The temperature reading on the dashboard said 38 degrees Celsius, and it was near midnight.
