Happy Summer Solstice Day

If you are reading this in the Northern Hemisphere then Happy Summer Solstice day but if you are in the Hemisphere which has bent sticks that come back to you and animals with pouches then Happy Winter Solstice cobber.
The UK will enjoy 16 hours and 38 minutes of daylight today as it is officially mid-summer but to some it is the start of summer and the Sun has obliged today by being particularly shiny but today won't be the hottest day for us Northern Hemispherers where the sweltering weather is still to come.
This summer so far has been a big disappointment for many, the 21st June and it just hasn't really got going this year but i was more miffed that the thunderstorms in the week seemed to swerve around us and that's the only bit of summer i really like, the massive electric storms.
With the warmest part of summer still to land, there is still plenty of time for picnics in the park, a dip in the sea and sunburn but after today we are on the downward slope to the best time of the year, Christmas which my phones countdown app shows is just 186 days away!.
