    Today in Southern England..

    Primal Fuel
    At last.. Wasn't it lovely? After four months of rain and damp and grey skies today was what we want in an English Summer: Blue skies and sun.

    And an English guy won the Tour de France.

    Currently sitting on the patio with a glass of wine and looking at the setting sun on the garden - very happy..

    Went for a long walk yesterday and will get my bike out of the garage tomorrow for the first time this year. But for now, it's time for my rabbit stew..

    Best wishes to all UK (and everywhere else) Groks...

    (Ok - put the wine glass down and step away from the computer..)

    Cheers - yes it has been amazing.

    I've been at Bristol's Harbour Festival today and yesterday. Have listened to some amazing live music and seen some awesome circus/trapeze acts. I've certainly caught the sun. And I've walked about 16 miles over the weekend.

    A friend of mine ran a half marathon over a hilly course today, which is a major achievement, as she had no opportunity to train in heat.

    Long may this continue.

    Just stepping away from the computer would suffice as you don't want it taking away from your enjoyment of the wine. Just sayin'

    Sunny in Spalding tis morning. Walked into town and got the shopping. Mow the lawns later and get some more rays.

    363. Gloomy Winter’s Now Awa’

    Robert Tannahill (1774–1810)


    GLOOMY winter’s now awa’,
    Saft the westlan’ breezes blaw,
    ’Mang the birks o’ Stanley-shaw
    The mavis sings fu’ cheerie, O!
    Sweet the crawflower’s early bell 5
    Decks Gleniffer’s dewy dell,
    Blooming like thy bonnie sel’,
    My young, my artless dearie, O!

    Come, my lassie, let us stray
    O’er Glenkilloch’s sunny brae, 10
    Blithely spend the gowden day
    ’Midst joys that never weary, O!
    Towering o’er the Newton wuds,
    Laverocks 1 fan the snaw-white cluds,
    Siller saughs, 2 wi’ downy buds, 15
    Adorn the banks sae briery, O!

    Round the sylvan fairy nooks
    Feath’ry breckans 3 fringe the rocks,
    ’Neath the brae the burnie jouks, 4
    And ilka 5 thing is cheerie, O! 20
    Trees may bud, and birds may sing,
    Flowers may bloom, and verdure spring,
    Joy to me they canna bring,
    Unless wi’ thee, my dearie, O!


    This has been known to transport me to another dimension. Enjoy yourselves.

    Nights are drawing in, soon be Christmas. Walked in to town and got the local paper & shopping this morning and will be off for my fourth Body by Science workout this afternoon.

    Hi Phil, I have been partaking of a few too many G and T's in the sun but I have been lifting a lot of heavy things as penance .
    I was born in Newbury now live in Wiltshire.

    I love this thread! I wish I was in England right now. My husband was born there but we haven't been back for 20 years since our honeymoon. He lived in Great Yarmouth. Other family members have been back but we haven't made the trip because we have three kids now so very expensive to fly 5 of us.

    I was watching the Olympic coverage just now thinking what a pretty sunny day it is there with a shot of London Bridge in the background.
