Perhaps Guadalajara will do.

Off-topic: the balloon just got clearance for an appearance at the tin-pot dictator’s celebration of himself.

Back to the topic…

Perhaps you meant this one?

No, I meant that even Guadalajara won’t do, because a big Black Friday is coming.

Yet more proof that England is not part of Europe. Cold wet and miserable June here in England, most of us thought Summer had been cancelled due to a lack of interest.

I spent an incredibly uncomfortable hot summer sweltering in Germany a few years back, saved only by the new friends who showed me how to break in to the community swimming pool at night. In general, I found, most homes & businesses didn’t have air conditioning or even fans. By day the public pool was so packed you could barely move. By night, having it all to ourselves to swim nude in the dark was delightful.

Speak for yourself. It’s been up in the low-to-mid twenties over the past few weeks down here, which is already more than warm enough for my liking.
