thick walls (stone?) perform an averaging effect over several days. Great in a desert where the cool nights can average with hot days. If not in the desert, you will be fine in short heat waves but a long heat wave will be a problem and will last several days longer inside than outside.

I know, once its hot its hot for weeks, it doesn't cool down, the stone heats up and then emits the heat at night. you can actually feel the heat coming out of the stones. No I have to wait for a thunderstorm, open all the windows and just let it blow through.

3 days of rain here... had to get to the station and it was raining?

Why can't it rain during more convenient times of the day?

So I run a weather camp for high school, and we spend a couple days camping near the weather service office on Long Island. Got rained on, but the kids were troopers and not a single complaint.

Of course the tents were wet, and being on Manhattan I have no place to put tents to dry out except on the roof of the building I work in. I had the kids set up the tents and through a camp chair in them to keep them from blowing away. They were somewhat sheltered from the wind so I wasn't worried about them.

Turns out tents need to be staked on all 4 corners to withstand wind, and tossing a camp chair in there won't do it. The tents deformed and the poles snapped at the sleeves. 5 tents wasted! Mad I don't trust them to be in the right bags, so I hope the part numbers are on the tents themselves, otherwise I'll never get things straight and will have to buy new ones.

Yeah, an occasional buzz is okay, but some people seem perpetually stoned the way a street hobo is perpetually drunk.

They clearly have access to too much information. Round these parts we selected a leader who shuts out all real information and therefore makes decisions quite easily.

All interesting ideas... 2 of them are not in the same country though so hard to take phones away or get them Ribena.

On the info side.... I shouldn't have to get involved in some of these basics and so need to make sure they have the info!

I can't decide whether online dating is worse or better than job-hunting. On the one hand, you get to read about interesting-sounding people in your area that share your interests, but on the other hand at least when applying for a job you can get a response if you just keep calling them back.
I have a nagging suspicion that it's all a big sham.

Everything is a sham if money is involved & I think online dating is the biggest.

Ice-cream shops aren't shams. I pay them money, they give me delicious ice-cream.
