    No surprise there.
    I’m afraid that they all urinate in the same ceramic receptacle, their wage packets depend on it.

      Just like the Zummerzet levels. Green morons thinking they know better.

    On the BBC 6 o’clock news, the weatherman said that, “Next week there would be a Regime Change.” Apparently there is a chance of rain.

      Yep I noticed that coming after Justin Lowratt squawked on about “brutal” , “danger”, “extreme risk” etc,etc. It’s all becoming a new religion.

    Troon town centre and world famous golf courses including Turnberry could be under water in less than 20 years, according to stark new climate change projections.

    Experts say hundreds of homes and businesses along the Ayrshire coast are at risk of being submerged over the next two decades if environmental change continues on its present trajectory.

    Seems unlikely.
    I spent one of the worst holidays of my life at Troon.

      They can rebuild further inland.

      IT’S NO ONE ELSE’S PROBLEM.

      All climate change warnings assume a collectivist bent.

      +57 over par? One of those days? Know the feeling.

    Totally OT: According to WUWT we are back into a La Nina, that’s three on the bounce.

      Yes , I noticed a few days ago that overnight the ENSO meter there had dropped significantly into La Nina territory. According to Met Office info on Google this means a cold dry winter in the UK . On the other hand , WUWT has evidence that the Jet Stream is not weakening , as the BBC has been saying (as the cause of the “climate emergency”) , but strengthening and that I think means a return to a more stable weather system , albeit possibly one dominated by wet westerlies. So its goodbye barbeque summers.

    Hi Neil,

    We were up before 7am again because the painter was due at 7.30. After breakfast I worked for a good deal of the morning on the Minster Court report adding observations from my visit.

    A phone call advised me that the hut I had ordered was en route and would arrive before 12. It duly appeared and was left on the drive propped up against the hedge. After a nice salad lunch and allowing some time to digest it we started moving the log pile from where the hut is to stand. I sprayed weedkiller on the strawberry plants and then laid a tarp over them. That should finish them off as they now have a lot of logs piled on top of them. 

    I had to keep stopping to cool down as it was in full sun and very hot for doing physical stiff. I had plenty to drink too to keep hydrated. A couple of visits inside helped to cool down as well. I also cut down and shredded a shrub which had grow out a lot and was prickly. That wasn’t too bad as by late afternoon it was in the shade. 

    I moved some more logs while waiting for the BBQ to get going and then cooked some gammon slices on it which was eaten with some salad. After dinner and a rest to let the meal digest I moved a lot more logs and are now down to the rump of the pile. I’ll shift that tomorrow morning after breakfast while it is still cool. 

    The temp today got to 26.5C in the shade so well over 30C in the full sun. I splashed on plenty of sun screen. 

    Once the logs are shifted I’ll level the area off and then lay down some concrete paving slabs. I may have to get some more but I think Stan has a stock of some we gave him years ago. On top of those will go some pressure treated timber posts laid flat to act a bearers for the shed floor. That will get it off the ground and stop any rot starting underneath. I may have to get some more posts but we’ll see what I have in stock. 

    This evening after giving up on the logs I decide to shift the shed into the garage and pulled out the Land Rover to make space for it. I dragged most of the panels in there and JC helped shift the roofing felt and the bundle of timbers to support the floor etc. 

    Kevin the painter never seems to stop for a minute and has been hard at it all day from just after 7.30 until 5pm when he went home to his holiday home at Flamingo Land at Kirkby Misperton. Tomorrow morning I will disconnect the washing machine and move it out and also the tumble dryer. It will be dusty and full of cobwebs behind them. I’ll give it all a good clean and then Kevin can do the paint job.

    You got your modelling done, visited town for water etc but passed on the 3 mile walk due to the drive man coming. Today will be more CMP bashing and then the ritual window washing event.

    The latest post by Paul Homewood, who doesn’t deny the small amount of warming we have experienced in the last 150 years, is a link to a Fox News interview with Rand Paul in which the senator mentions the Kentucky floods and people complaining the drainage ditches are silted up due to EPA regulations on dredging.

    Cheers,

    Stu

    Rand Paul is one of the few sane and radical voices in the US Senate he is an MD was an outspoken opponent of the COVID regime, refused to get the vaccinations and was vociferous critic of Fauci.

    Another American politician you might want to check is Thomas Massie a Representative from Kentucky who is very outspoken on personal rights. His magnificent house in Kentucky is off the grid and he and his wife built it using local stone. A video worth watching:

      Amazing what can be achieved if you have enough money.

    Same here in N Wales, Llanberis High street flooded a few years back, the stream into the village was overgrown and choked with debris, purely lack of maintenance. Once upon a time Councils had a a Clerk and deputy and a capable, experienced workforce…. now a plethora of expensive CEO’s and managers. You know the rest.

      And that was the case also with the Cambridge Levels and Glenridding on Ullswater in the Lakes during Desmond. The Environ Agency stopped dredging the river because someone found a rare newt (seems it had survived all dredging thrown at it up to that point). The locals were in uproar because dredging was necessary to avoid periodic flooding. Desmond came, Glenridding flooded and of course climate change not crass incompetence is the cause!

    Lack of dredging- note same problem in UK Somerset levels a few years ago.
    EU regulations – both man’s incompetance.

      The problem has been that solid science and engineering have taken a poor second place to greenology…which they make up as they go along.

    Same alarmist script from the top, every time…

    Biden falsely links Kentucky floods to ‘climate change’ – Reality Check: Floods ‘have not increased in frequency or intensity’ – White House ignores peer-reviewed studies & IPCC & data

    Ans lest you have forgotten or never knew, the EPA brought us the toxic mine spill in to Colorado’s Animas River in August 2015. Paul even put up an article I referenced at that time. Although the below dubs it an “accident” there is reason to believe that might not be the case….
