Something just occurred to me. L21 must have originated someplace that had no wine. Otherwise, why would anyone have left that place for a cold, damp region like the British Isles?

I guess I'm bored. There were no L21 results on Friday, and now there is a long holiday weekend here. FTDNA probably won't get around to producing any results until Tuesday, July 6th, at the earliest.

You won't believe this, but the sky is currently blue over Bristol. The weather forecast for tomorrow (I kid you not) is "partly sunny and delightful".

As in on the river Avon ?

I could have waved at you a few hours ago, from across the estuary mind, there's a hill in the way now.

My family stopped of there when they moved from Radnorshire, but my G grandfather got posted to S. Wales on the death of my GG grandmother.

It's a bit cooler here today, but I got an email from the Cambridge saying it's 'roasting', it's about time we had a tidy summer.

In Ireland there has been about 5 or 6 weeks with hot (anything above 20 degrees centigrade counts as hot here) sunny weather prominent.  That is so rare its almost unheard of.  The only similar one I can recall was about 15 years back.  Its quite normal to only get one or two good weeks of solid proper warm sunny weather all year in Ireland so the recent weather has been incredible.  It was also one of coldest winters on record this year/late last year.  So the weather has been following central European rather than Atlantic patterns this year.  I would be happy if that is the way the climate change is heading because nice crisp snowy winters and warm sunny summers beats all year round cloud and rain.

Here 40° C, 90% humidity. A few days ago I lost my little "Gattino bianco" (1 years old) by FeLV. I am desperate.

@ Alan You can't have everything. It's all that rain that keeps the Isle so Emerald. They say the humidity preserves the complexions of the colleens as well. Before the advent of the vast array of skin lotions on offer to women today, Europeans who migrated to Australia got their skins shrivelled before their time.

@ Jdean My younger son has settled in S Wales. He complains that it rains just about every day, but the scenery is splendid and so are the people.

Yes we're not bad really, and it does rain here quite a lot or so people who move here tell me, I suppose it's like water off a duck's back for us;)

Saying that I've always been rather fond of Bristol and used to go there relatively often in my teens, as it happens I was at the RO not that long ago, very accommodating I didn't even have to pay for parking :)

I just returned from 3 weeks in Herefordshire and enjoyed the best spell of weather I have encountered there in the last 18 years.
I waived in the general direction of jdean and jean m when passing through Newport and Bristol on the train, but I suspect they took no notice.

And right past my house, it backs onto that line.

I wondered why you had been keeping your head down, glad you finally managed to witness a decent British summer. I'm scratching my head trying to remember the last one.

I always wanted to spend a summer in England, but I could never work out just what day it falls on.

Well, here in Merry Ol' Virginia, it's hot and sunny. My daughter had her first swimming lesson today, taught by a young man named Cameron with bright red hair. Then this afternoon she had her first horseback riding lesson.

It was a glorious day, really hot, but we have lots of big trees and plenty of shade.
