I'm happy when the weather is between 85-95 F (300-35 C). I think thats a beautiful day. I say go outside and have a good time, just drink plenty of water.

I used to live in the Arabian desert where the temperature would regularly get to 50C (122F) or more. That kind of heat is actually deadly, so if you ever find yourself in such an environment, avoid being directly out in the sun, cover your head, and drink lots of water.

Anything above the 20's is hot for us ! I don't live in London, though, so don't go there - you'll be disappointed ! tongue.gif

I live in the South West, on the border of 2 counties called Dorset and Somerset. Nearest 'big' town would be called Wincanton, in case you guys wanna pin point me on Google maps biggrin.gif


Wow Ben, there is really no metropolitan areas anywhere near where you live! You're like an English hill billy laugh.gif Doesn't Jeremy Clarkson always make jokes about that area? I think I've learned more about the different regions of England from him than from anywhere else blink.gif

laugh.gif laugh.gif I love Clarkson's humour but you can take it for granted that nothing he says is factually reliable biggrin.gif

I think the area he joked about the most was Norfolk, which is a county north east of London. I've never been there myself but apparently it's a bit 'Deliverance' out there too. My favourite joke was where he said '..in Norfolk, where they've only just stopped pointing when cars go past..'

That's right ! Well, the nearest city (although it would just seem like a big town to you guys) is technically Poole and Bournemouth. I say Poole and Bournemouth because Poole is closer but it kind of sprawls into Bournemouth. They're both on the south coast smile.gif

Well, Ben's gonna outlive us all because the stress factor is probably a lot lower than in the big crowded cities laugh.gif

Play with emotion. Playing with all technique and no emotion makes you boring. And most importantly, Make faces while bending.

I actually know a cop here in Charlotte that is from Norfolk. I find it was a bit unusual for someone to move from England and become a cop here in the South laugh.gif
