What are your thoughts on this one?

For those who live in the Phils and have been for a number of years, has the weather changed?

We hear of global warming and the changes in the weather and what we are seeing too from many different parts of the world. Look at England these last few years.

So what are your thoughts?? Try to look back on years and seasons if you can or ask your partner. This would be interesting for anyone who is interested in making the move to a warmer climate but will it stay a warmer climate for years to come? Just a thought

It seems pretty general Steve, I believe the whole planet is affected by more severe weather conditions! :xxgrinning--00xx3:

California is having a really bad drought, and like us, that is due to the Jetstream having been stuck for months.

It is all going to get worse, so I'm off to Mars :xxgrinning--00xx3:

Yes Simon, everything up and running correctly as from last weekend.

Mid range theatre sound system, but couldn't set everything up properly until we had finished furnishing, then did the final speaker balance with the microphone as it senses where every item of furniture is. Big success just like being in the Cinema, sounds great! :xxgrinning--00xx3:

Lovely and hot here, but the last 5 days or so thunderstorms at nightfall. Doesn't help with tbe powercuts when it thunders!

I reckon I'm whiter now then when I left UK a month ago, way too hot to sit in the sun, as my sunburnt back and shoulders will tell you after 30 minutes in it a few weeks back.

A lot of people don't understand why I never come back with a superb tan when I go on holiday! I actually am not that bothered about a tan, I like hot weather, but a tan isn't a priority.

I use Showroom Shine been using it for ten years now, only takes 20 minutes and no need to wash, brilliant stuff but a tad expensive. I just wondered if you used it Les, being in the Taxi business and limited for time. By the way 1 bottle lasts 12 months!

Yes, I have used it too but find little bit of white residue is left behind as it goes everywhere.

It's good for a quick polish tho.

You get a better shine with Autoglym but much harder work.

Woke up this morning at 5am and it looked as though it's been siling it down during the night, grass green, pond full to the brim, windows wet through - so I got out my microfiber cloth and cleaned all windows, wheelie bins and car also my garden furniture and it didn't take long really with everything being wet.

I had to check the term Indian Summer out a few years ago as it does not make sense - you are wishing for a summer of plus 40c in September one would seem, now I know you really mean a continuation of warm days into autumn but the term Indian summer does not reflect that. I think it should be re-named Autumn Summmer :xxgrinning--00xx3:

Not packed anything yet, but the count down has begun.
