Off to Europe!

The weather in the UK has been excellent for the ducks, and the geese.
I'm happy for them, they love the rain and get excellent ground speed
when they fly downwind in the gales. I wish I could honestly say that
the British summer is better than the Australian winter but I'd be lying
about it if I did. Here some brave scientists are suggesting that global
warming is to blame for the bad weather due to an altered jet stream
pattern, but in the polls conducted on tv only 1 in 4 Britons believe
that global warming is affecting the weather. The good news is that on
Thursday at midnight I catch a ferry to France and get to enjoy a few
weeks in warmer climes. Of course I will have my glider with me and I am
planning to catch up with Jason & Karl in Switzerland and can't wait to
finally get to fly again.
