Out of the Blue

We got a lot of rain in these parts over the weekend, which was welcome, as at the end of last week we got a robo-call from our village prohibiting car washing and restricting lawn watering due to a drought emergency, so hopefully this well ease matters around here (where things are nowhere near as dramatic as most of the country). The downpour yesterday prevented me grilling, so I made some from-scratch sloppy joes, which were a huge hit.

We're having by far the wettest year on record here in the uk. Rainfall is up 200% on the average between 1971 and 2000, and temperatures are down 0.3C across the same period.

The last water company here dropped our hose-pipe ban a couple of weeks ago and my wife and I want to emigrate asap!

Where's our bloody global warming.

Newsource - including pics taken whilst there was still a hose-pipe ban enforced due to "Draught":

Congrats Cutter! Should be get you a fire extinguisher for your cake, or just watch you pass out from lack of oxygen while trying to blow them out?


Ok folks, is Rage worth 10 bucks?

Speaking of platform improvements, it would be nice to have in-line image functionality (even if only in preview form and a toggle that users control in their CP) as well as the URL tag getting fixed.

Teleporters. The repercussions of their existence should of been far greater than the Star Trek universe ever explored.

Happy Birthday, Cutter! I'd tell you to have a great party, but I'm pretty sure you already have that covered.


Congrats on your level up Cutt!

Not possible. Trek sucks right along with BSG.

Sloppy Joe's are awesome comfort food, almost as wonderful as the grilled cheese sandwich in the winter. You can make them so many different ways too, I like to put cajun spices in mine for some zing.
