With none of the frenetic histrionics which typically accompany any news announcement in this country, a presenter on one of our local TV channels stated in calm and measured tomes, "The hurricane season officially begins on Sunday".

I wonder if anyone's bothered to alert the hurricanes?

Just a quick apology to anyone who received an email from me in the last few days.   I did not send them, my email was hacked.   It is all fixed now, so I hope it didn't cause anyone else problems.  I opened an email from an address I knew, and you might know it also.  It begins with vindalu I have had emails from there before and it has been OK.  So I suspect their email has been hacked.
