Yes it has been a trifle warm recently with the weather pundits screaming "Its the hottest it has ever been since gawd knows when" "Hot as Hell" Say's the recently resurrected ? Meteorological office spokesperson.
We are now experiencing a cool change, and in my office as I write the temp is now a modest 23 C or 70 F, without fans or air/con,
Within two hours of shopping time I scored over a half century in public (yanks ignore this) It is called heat scoring, The Batsman scores one run for every mention of heat, four runs for any heat - themed cliche and six for humidity.
The English gentleman's depleted cricket team fed up with the heat and not winning the toss have departed from Australia to cooler climes, Graeme Swann the England spinner already back in the U/K, was his usual funny self; saying "Phenomenal Sunday dinner by the wife. I might even let her sleep indoors tonight.
However, we made it through the six day sweat fest, with even higher temps recorded inland. Yesterday's cool change arrived like an old friend, also bringing a deluge of rain along the Central Coast of NSW. There was relief, too, as the States power supply held firm under what could be described as massive use. We have fortunately avoided cyclonic weather and flooding also bush fires.
But with the current crazy weather patterns recently, perhaps we shouldn't relax too soon.
Locally, most of the grassed areas are brown and scorched from the sun , plants have wilted and seedlings dried to a crisp.
Back in 1995 the Australian cricket hierarchy demanded the omission of Muttiah Muralidaran from playing within Australia, Saying the Sri lankan guy was a 'Chucker', M M decided he would never again return to Australia..
It would seem time has eroded those caustic remarks with M M in his twilight years deciding to coach future Aus 'Spin bowlers for a cash incentive to assist his lagging fortunes. for my two cents I would not hesitate to describe most fast bowlers as chuckers, the policing of this problem is fraught with even more problems some even bordering on political stand-offs RE Feb 1 / 81 the sordid underarm thingy by the OZ Chappelli's, when Nu zilland P M Piggy Mulddoon closed the Oz Embassy in Wellington, with Bob Chicken Hawke Oz PM, stating "ay ay ay ay er ay Its the new emergency Aussie Cricket Rules."
It is a crying shame the Aussies are such lousy losers.Will this stir the can who cares!.
On the Health scenario, little has changed, I still get the Wobbles in the early morning , the Occasional headache and the strange phenomena - the annoying throbbing in my temple which manifests itself whenever it feels it has a reason for annoying me, however it has been confirmed by the neurologist that it is inoperable and I am stuck with it,.Oh well it's better than not being in the land of the living.
There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.
Vest... back soon.
