Canada brewery apologises for beer named 'pubic hair' in Maori

I wonder if it was a brewery owned by Busch...

Somebody could tell you that "Guinness" means "go f*** yourself" in the Oombakawawa dialect from the Belgian Congo, and that it must be changed.

Oh, here comes the Outrage Bus, better hop on....

I reckon that boar was just hogging the limelight.

Plenty of belly fat for a slow roast

Feel like I'm slowly roasting here and we're on the coast. Must be baking inland.

Reasonable cool breeze but definitely toasty in the abode right now...

Blimey, see what you mean, that must have brewed up after the air mass passed over me - hot, stick and dry as a desert here....

A new meaning for "drinking from the furry cup"?

Hot and sticky hereabouts, SWMBO has decided that we're not having a cooked dinner tonight - fine by me, three cans of chilled Thatchers Gold and a cheese sandwich should suffice...buggrit, I'll fore-go the cheese.

three cans of chilled Thatchers Gold
I walked 2.5 miles up (literally!) to the Huxley at Selsdon for a lengthy brekkers at 8am, then 6.5 miles back through dale, wood and byway... got home 2pm and downed an ice-cold bottle of Rattler in short order. Might drink its replacement which went into the fridge. Rain/tempest avoiding these parts, there is a nice breeze if you can find it but not in my house. Contemplating sleeping in the bath!

Don't forget to empty it first treadie.
A quick but noisy funderstorm here at first light, no rain though. Strange rain over the weekend, very large drops but not like a shower and all over in less than 30 seconds.
Looking at the Lightningorg site I think we're in for bit of weather later this evening.
IIRC there's meteor showers around these next few days.

The mate I met for brekkers reported a light sprinkling on his route up, were some dark clouds for a bit. I could see some big CBs up to the NE when I was walking later on but looking at the radar they seem to have been light on rain.

I noticed zillions of lightning strikes between Bangor and Chester last night and stretching up towards Liverpool and down to Welshpool I think. Mega rain area over Glasgae/Dumfries this morning.

Ought to be outside sanding a door - too muggy to varnish the one that's ready...

Edit: ooh, does look like a bit o' son et lumiere across the Channel and heading this way!

The Gathering Storm on the southern side of the Channel seems to have fizzled out a bit. Stuff building and popping off NW of London. I see Shropshire is getting zapped too.

I think I may have melted...

Yes, disappointing they vanished over the channel. Earlier this evening we had quite a few strong gusts of wind which usually precede a storm.

Sounds like my evening ritual on the way home from work, previously.

Unfortunately my 10 yrs old Black Lab companion is now limited to a slow 500 meters, Vet has diagnosed a bowel tumour.

He's in good form so I'll follow his lead. He has his own bed in my office and I've been fortunate to always having to be able to bring him to work every day.

Going to make it harder when he goes though...

Why are pups so bloody expensive right now?

That's always the problem with pets, they go and it hurts.
Have you considered a rescue dog?

My visiting cat has moved away with her owners unfortunately. Used to pop round for a bit of petting and a play fight, then off to the next part of her daily routine.

Awakened by loud... revving of some stupid engine by one of our local moronic wannabe drug dealers. Thinking of hauling on some clothes and seeing if it's any cooler walking at this time of day.

We have a motor cyclist who bombs around town late at night on their very loud bike just for the sake of it. I wonder where I can purchase a good length of piano wire.

After a major book clear out last week which included quite a few aviation books, Mrs H took them in to the charity shop where she volunteers. The books were immediately put in the shop window display, they usually have a themed window display. Chatting to her sister on the phone this morning Mrs H mentioned that they literally flew out of the shop.
