You enjoy a banter on the boards, and it is good you can still take part in that. There is nothing else I can think of to add here.
Maybe just a personal note about our weather. Yesterday was 31°C (85°F) and our electricity was cut off all day, over 8 hours, because of pole repair works. It meant no running water, only in several buckets, and it meant no fans. All windows open was no use. Fires in the centre of Tasmania with people evacuated. Better day today forecast, and the electricity is back. I have edited the list of things to take (lots!) if fire comes here. Makes me feel better, but will I panic instead of? Appealing to higher powers - certainly, but if it has to happen it will. I hope you believe in climate change? There should be enough signs of it by now everywhere, even David Attenborough believes it, but our government doesn't! Pathological disbelievers or self-centred numb-skulls.
