It's possible someone has posted this already but I've not been able to visit MW for a few days so am rather behind.  Anyway in case not, this was on the back page of Tuesday's Guardian - it's a great piece about Andy and what happened on Sunday:
http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/blog/2011/jul/11/andy-murray-tears-tennis1

My son came home with a copy of a weekly Guardian yesterday - didn't know they did that here blink  I'm on the list to read it yes


Sorry, should have said well done Scotland for nabbing another Davis Cup round clap

Absolutely dismal summer in the UK so far and no signs of improvement.  About 60F in Edinburgh yesterday - and that was in the middle of the day! 
I will be happy to send you our heat 98 degrees F today and over a hundred the next few days.....awful heat this summer in Missouri and across the Midwest.  Yes, pleasant in the early morning and later in the evening.

I can't stand the heat! Never could! I love to see the sun, but can't bear to be out in it! My favourite times of day to sit in the garden in Summer, is 5am and then from 7pm onwards! The cool of the evening when all the flowers release their scent and I can look at the night sky, is my idea of heaven!
just rub it in ,while i swelter in the florida heat.!!!

Yes, Florida heat has lots of humidity making it seem even hotter.  Unfortunately here (Missouri), the morning real early is the only good time, evening time is still really hot.

As I have said in previous posts, but not on this thread, I spent some of my working life in Houston, Texas.

The worst I ever experienced was in a particular day when the temperature was 98F, with outside humidity of 97. Leaving a fully air conditioned suite of offices to suffer such level of hell was totally unreal.

Within a split second my glasses were completely covered with opaque moisture. I could not see and consequently the only way was to remove my glasses. As I am dreadfully short-sighted the only way to get to my car was by feeling each vehicle until I reached my own car.

Never again. Just give me wet and comfortable England.

As a Brit also in exile can I put in my tuppence worth about the weather in Oslo, which is so far north that there is barely 2 of months summer. The winters are long, right up to May most years. The saying goes there are 2 winters in Norway, a white one and a green one!

Spent a great winter's week on business in Stavanger. Boy, was it cold, but I loved it.

So working with my former employer went from Houston, Texas to The Hague, Netherlands to Stavanger, Norway, to Dubai, to Tripoli, Libya to Jerusalem, Israel.

Therefore: very hot to luke warm to freezing to ridiculously hot to also ridiculously hot to reasonably warm. AS I said give me England every time.

Lucky old you travelling, OSS! You're right of course,  all extremes are uncomfortable.

Summer here is a disaster, all my beautiful flowers are all damaged by the wind and rain.  We get one day of sunshine and its back to the rain again. Maybe we will have an Indian Summer. Love the heat wish we could get a few nice hot days lovely.

Would love to be there.....

Me too, but all the available holiday time (at work) for September has been used up.  I wish they could announce these things with loads more notice.
