Modern records only go back to 1961?

Okay I can see why:  Rain, then drizzle, followed by overcast, fog near Parliament.  You could copy/paste that most of the time.  (Sorry Brits, I couldn't resist.)   :)

>old stuff

Like pre-Beatles?   ;D

No actually that is very cool.  I like the fact that drones are making these finds more widespread and cheaper. 

I remember reading as a kid that there is not one inch of land in Britain that has not been altered by Man.  The thought of that blew my mind back then.

Back on topic: how are you all coping with the heat?  How is the water situation?

I was there last week and it seemed to be all anyone was talking about. I guess it did look a bit brown, but I haven't seen it otherwise. It was a bit noticeable from the plane when taking off though. I thought I'd be hearing of the World Cup or politics in the pub, but instead the brown grass was the topic of the day.
