    Ah, the English sense of humour! (the phone number on the truck looks like a UK number).

    There was a hair salon near my grandmother's house (also in the UK) called "Blowjobs".

    Air conditioning in the UK ... seems redundant, in a way.

    What the folks across the pond need, from what they tell me, is PLUMBING SERVICE! UK plumbing, to use a word that describes other, normally more positive traits of the Queen's domain, is "quaint."

    Have you ever been stuck in the UK during a heat wave (they do happen)? It is no fun, as there is little air-conditioning, even in the shopping malls and such.

    Sorry for the belated response, I've been on holiday for the last week.

    Anyway, my opinion. Ummm. We need air conditioning in summer. Hot weather has a tendency to suprise us in Britain 'cos we never expect it. This time of year is usually somewhere between 20 and 25 degrees centigrade (yes, we do consider that hot, and no, I don't know what that is in fahrenheit...). It's not really hot, but it's enough to make us a little uncomfortable.

    BTW, I'm sat in a room at about 23 degrees, wearing shorts, t-shirt and sandals. All my colleagues are meeting VIPs and 'public' today so they're all in suits (shirt, jacket, trousers/skirts, ties for the men), looking a bit hot and bothered and incredibly jealous.

    I've alwas been there in Autumn when the rest of the tourists go home.

    Wisconsin is having one heck of a heat wave this summer. Dozens of days in the 90's so far (sorry Journeymouse, I don't know what that is in centigrade), and heat index well over 100. My air conditioner just couldn't keep up - so I was forced to go to a bar to shoot pool yesterday. (yeah, twisted my arm something fierce!)
