    We spent yesterday afternoon at a canal-side pub. It was thoroughly enjoyable and quite warm. The beer went down well!

    I used to hate office work on the real hot days,the aircon would usually be inadequate and you'd swelter. But the worst I remember was the summer of '76. I was working on flight line for aircraft, it was awful. You couldn't even touch the aircraft without getting burned.

    We had a Shackleton that we were installing radio and radar in and we ended up running a long plastic tube through the fuselage, front to back and connected a ground cooling unit to it. Wherever anyone was working they simply cut a hole in the tube and had their own localised cool spot. - It was even suggested that we change our hours to miss the late afternoon heat.

    Just checked the weather forecast. The minimum temperature is dropping to 15c tonight, with very little breeze; a nice sweaty, sleepless night for all!

    I don't know about anyone else, but the hot weather is getting a bit much now - I'm starting to find the heat a bit oppressive.
