    You have no idea how much work I am saved by this rain.

    If this immediate vicinity is not a annex of the wonderful National Botanic Gardens in a few months more I'll give up Guerilla gardening. (Kidding)

    I lived there circa '92. Being a Cork native, it was like Daniel in the Lions den.

    Both, if that's an option; if not, I'll put up with the rain.

    As for the rain, it is kind of comforting when you are inside listening to it. Not so good when you have to venture out at 6.45 and all the umbrellas in the house are banjaxed or missing

    Thanks, Seanie..

    The rain is definitely getting serious. I read in some newspaper over the weekend, that people now accept that the summer is a lost cause and the stampede for the exits has begun---mad, last-minute booking of cheapish Spanish holidays so that families can get a bit of sunshine before the kids have to go back to school..

    Some of my friends who booked late-July family holidays to France and Portugal way back in early Spring, are walking around with that smug expression on their faces....

    But believe it or not there was a 40 minute break in the downpour in Dublin this morning and it got sultry and very warm...I went up beyond Ticknock in the Dublin mountains, and looked down over the city and the sea...It was beautiful...

    It's good to be alive these long July days...let it rain....

    Had to water the vegetables here in Cork this AM - dry as a bone they were. Have started to peel as well.

    By the way, it was the Roman Catholic church which came about those "hundreds of years after Christ". Which shows your ignorance. Another wee lesson for you; the early Christian symbol was a fish, not a crucifix.
    Ah, but this is the dawning age of Aquarius now ye-see. Bye Bye Pisces.
