England under water,CC. is

Not the cause-routine tidal surge.Thought maybe Al Gore took a dip at a sea-side resort.

Florida having unseasonably cold weather,ski resorts all over country opening earlier than usual.Hot air from Northeast not having much effect.

well hope the water will have retracted from Bond Street and the Pall Mall Area when I go Christmas shopping in London in 2 weeks. I will see if the roses are still blooming in Regent parks inner circle. Otherwise I will have to do my shopping in Notting Hill and swim down the Tames and home to Denmark. I do not need that many things from London ..just some Burberry Items. I am saving my money for my trip to Iowa in December. The Dollar has hit a 30 year all low record so we get 35 percent more for the bucks for the money than last year. Maybe that Pres. of yours isn´t so bad after all.

I was beginning to think you were pretty sharp Niels but Iowa in December????
Iowa in August and September sorta interesting cause you really can hear the corn growing but thats about as exciting as it gets.
Maybe I should have said ``Some of England------''.

Exactly Pete!!! All Scandinavians wear these to keep warm in winter time!. We are Btw hit by the remains of hurricane Noel these days!!! I think it was that hurricane the cause the rain and storm surge in England. The West coast here is badly hit by the storm surge too and we had lots of rain yesterday and tonight when the front of the storm hit us. Right now we are in the storm eye, but it will start blowing badly again later tonight. I am happy I secured my climbers from the hard wind last week, and they were not damaged.

Richard, I think that would be pretty expensive. It must be hard working with knitting needles that small. Oh! It's for Tony H. Who is Tony? Is he coming?

Oh we have a great time in Iowa in December. There is usually no snow so we have some real cool water baloon fights and see who is the first one to stop moving (frozen solid in the -20F balmy weather.) You are going to need that nose muff!

The pig farms are closed to the public year around so that is a bummer.

The empty fields are frozen mud.

The grain farmers are all in Florida looking over Pete's fish catch.

Hopefully, I will have my climbers tipped by then.

I think the bowling alley will be closed for an ultimate fighting match.

Iowa in December? Humm?

I may still be riding my motorpickle if the roads are clear and the price of gas keeps going up.

We could sell tickets to watch me fall off of my motorpickle stopped at a stop light. That is about as exciting as it gets.

There is always rose porn and graft paper. Sounds like work.

Welcome anyways!
