As for the weather here in the midwest...we'ved had lovely sunshine up and 'til tomorrow the 4th July...US independence..a big day..Americans celebrate their freedom from us Brits. Expecting rain tomorrow to dampen the fireworks, but nothing like Oklahoma and Texas are getting, they have terrible floods, I think it's as bad if not worse than the English midland's floods. American so vast the weather is pretty much different in every state. Las Vegas and Phoenix have about 120 degrees farheneit, California has raging wildfires, it's probably raining in Seattle where Tommy is, it usually does quite often, like Manchester England.
Take care...and Cheers Cuckooites.
