"english summer"?, so it's not just a fluke that it's rained at least once every single day since july.
(why didn't anyone warn me?)

Alexis: take comfort in the fact that Scottish summers are, if anything, worse. Particularly here on the Atlantic-facing West Coast.

I don't know, I might actually like worse more. In York, it's just been , very teasing weather. rain rain rain, sun for 30 minutes, rain , sun for ten minutes, rain rain rain. and then more rain. : )

Oh, come on. You knew. What's England famous for, apart from warm beer and bad teeth?

Damp and boring climate.

It would be like me showing up in LA and saying "It's really hot and sunny! Why didn't anyone warn me?" :)

Helen says:

I probably would say that.

Wel, I'm warning you now. South California is very hot and sunny, in the summer. I only spent 20 mins in LA last time, but it was toasty hot and very bright.

Helen says:

Doesn't sound like my kind of place. But they have Rocket Dogs there, lots and lots of Rocket Dogs (well they come from LA).

Steve says:

Rocket dogs!!!!! I was so impressed until I found this :(

24th Aug 2005, 18:07

Helen says:

Eww. There are, like most things, good Rocket Dogs and bad Rocket Dogs.

*googles*

Aw, c'mon. If they're not going to be actual rocket-propelled canines, then Rocket Dogs should at least be either a surreal psychedelic metal band or a hot dog made with massively hot chilli sauce. Or both. At the same time. You've got a good-sized Vietnamese community on the West Coast, why can't you have hot dogs with Vietnamese chilli sauce? And they eat actual dog in some parts of Vietnam. Hmmmm. I feel a recipe coming on...

Helen says:

But then what would I wear on my feet?

24th Aug 2005, 18:17

Steve says:

There should be a warning on the box:

Warning Product may not contain either rockets and or dogs

no, I swear. last year, York was all sunshine and slightly cloudy days. (by "all" , I mean the two weeks I was here)
Before that, I'd only been to London in fall. that redefined gloomy.

England isn't famous at all. I'd never even have heard of it if it weren't for those bugs, or, er, beatles. (kidding. completely kidding.)
It's famous for tea, and bad teeth. Seattle,WA is famous for rain. (and it's a lie! Washington just says it rains all the time to keep people out of their wonderful lovely state.)

and. rocket dogs? will google when I get back. (thought it was a childrens shoe company?)
I can't think of any real good reason to go to LA. I keep trying to come up with things. It's not always hot/sunny, though.

London tends to be rather sunny in the erm...... summer...... damn you wine!

Helen says:

I like autumn.

When it's dry.

Steve says:

Grenwich park in the autum is beautiful..... actually not been in a while..... must rectify that

Helen says:

I like London autumn, bit less muddy than back home.

all the red but with fewer browns
