The weather here in Eastern England has been incredible for the past week. Very warm, clear blue skies and light breezes. Our village is starting to prepare for the Jubilee Weekend by planning several events. (An outdoor picnic in the grounds of the Village Hall, for example) Our local garage owner, the lovely Richard, has offered to pay for masses of bunting and other patriotic decorations. I'll be looking out my collection of flags to hang on my front windows.
We all fervently hope the dear Queen will be strong enough and able to attend the celebrations in London.

Sunny, warm, a bit muggy at times. I have two heat pump units in the house and so far the small one that serves the office, sun room, and kitchen (where I am during the day) is set to cool. It comes on a few times a day (not like during the summer). The other larger heat pump serves the rest of the house and by night it's cooler so it isn't needed yet. Sparing the electric bill.

My solar clothes dryer (aka clothesline) needs work, the posts are beginning to wobble. Using this won't keep waves from erasing low islands in the Indian Ocean, but it is my own butterfly effect that might help prevent a nuclear meltdown in Texas.

I just pulled up COVID statistics for Iceland - it looks like you're getting hammered there now also. None of the pages I visited made a distinction between original COVID, Delta, and Omicron.

Stay healthy!

Testing demand is low enough in my area that some sites are closing for now, with the provision that they can open up quickly if needed again. That has become standard operating procedure (SOP) here. And most of what is hitting here (North Texas) is Omicron. Now we're hearing about a sub-set of Omicron, but I don't have enough information to know if it is going to flare up again. Even though this is Texas a lot of people (the majority, I would say) are wearing masks still, and keeping their distance in public places. But we have super spreader events like huge football games and regional rodeo stock shows and more, to keep spreading it. You can pretty well put those who attend crowded stadiums without masks in the group that doesn't believe it is a problem or they should have to restrict their activities. That's why it keeps spreading. They come into contact with others who are vulnerable later on.

some businesses are still asking customers to sign in, but as I have a sensible phone, not a smart phone I can only sign in if they still provide pen & paper or an ipad.

I still put my mask on before leaving my apartment, as I learnt from bitter experience during lockdown to carry spare masks in my handbag, shopping bag & shopping trolley when I had to buy a paper mask from the closest shop after skulking down the street with a red, bare face. I stood in the doorway & called & the man who knows me allowed me to scurry in, grab a mask & return to the sign-on folder at the entrance!

Sydney's streets & shops are full of naked faces, but there are lots of masks, too. Shops do not seem to have removed their QR codes & there are many places that still need masks & sign in, including medical & allied health premises.

NSW urged to reintroduce COVID-19 restrictions COVID-19 restrictions after state sets new national record of cases. KEY POINTS # NSW is relaxing rules at the same time as cases are hitting record numbers. # The head of the AMA calls that "bizarre timing" # NSW Health will no longer routinely carry out genomic sequencing for the Omicron variant ... Dr Khorshid said living with the virus did not mean letting it rip like in NSW, where instead of the curve being flattened, it was almost vertical.

"It's very bizarre timing from the New South Wales government to pull out a mask mandate just when you are seeing an incredible spike in cases that matches what's happening around the world," he said.

He said mandatory measures were urgently needed to protect the healthcare system and workers who had been "stepping up for an awfully long time now". (read on)

Omicron is surging in southern Ontario and the provincial government is pushing booster shots for everyone over the age of 18. Schools will close for Christmas and probably stay that way in January. People are still travelling, but the government has asked us to stop going abroad. The borders have not closed to non-essential traffic and the aircraft are still flying, so I would call that official announcement nothing more than a pious hope.

here in the Land of Oz we are in summer - a very rainy summer! Bureau Outlook shows more wet weather likely this summer ... Bureau of Meteorology's Summer Outlook shows eastern Australia is likely to be wetter than average, with an increased risk of tropical cyclones, heavy rainfall and widespread flooding ...

We have very high rates of double vaccination, tho not in all areas, but anti-vaxxers are here too as are other assorted nutters like those who want "Freedom". Recently 2 of these Freedom seekers held up posters protesting about the loss of their 14th amendment rights.

Dunno why they thought "No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws" applied here, we are the land of Oz, not the US of A.

Dunno if they can even think, can't remember who said this recently, but it certainly applies in this case - We don't have enough villages for the idiots we produce.

Every once in a while I go to the Fox channel to see what they are saying. My stomach can't take much so I don't linger. But today this one new (? haven't seen her before) said something that made sense.

She said that as viruses mutate, in order to survive they tend to become less lethal. And therefore, it makes sense that Omicron will be less potent, even if more easily transmitted.

I am not a scientist- is this the case?

We've had a particularly mild fall here in North Texas; the two freezes were just barely there (reaching 32o but no lower - putting a tarp over the garden overnight was enough to keep several crops growing and producing). In my garden I still have three types of peppers (green bell, jalapeño, and poblano), one yellow bent-neck squash, and Swiss chard. The chard will tend to survive mild freezes. The garlic is sprouting now and will be ready to harvest next May. I have a few others recently moved into the greenhouse (some small flowering shrubs call bat-faced cuphea, and a basil plant).

Summing up the year for the holiday letter will include a description of the four days of super-sub freezing days last February. Not something to repeat if at all possible.

Here in Juneau, Alaska we have lots of snow, with more expected, the kind of snow I like: dense, creaky and sparkly. So that part is good.

As for the virus, Juneau has been in much better shape than Anchorage (which is in south central Alaska, while Juneau is much farther south). Juneau has an over 80% rate for people who have had at least one shot. We have not had covid death in quite a while.

On the other hand, I know several antivaxxers here in town, so we're not home free.

Storm season officially started here on 1st October, and so far it has lived up to that name - a tornado in the N.S.W. central west a couple of weeks ago did a lot of damage, while two nights ago another storm has left, as they say in the media, a "trail of destruction in its wake". That one was in Armidale, just an hour north of us......and last night we thought for a while that we might join them, but fortunately the storm blew itself out and moved away. It has, however, left winter temperatures behind it.

It seems that when summer coming in meets winter going out, the weather can get a little bit volatile.

After watching various named hurricanes this fall take aim at Florida, Louisiana, and Texas, the usual route, we're in the wake of Hurricane Pamela that landed on the southwest coast of Mexico and drifted northeast and into Texas. The storms are lined up so the places they're traveling across are getting one rain shower after another (this is the "train" or "railroad" effect). Three to four inches so far in some areas.

the port town in southeastern Iceland
where Valli ('Wally') the Walrus climbed up onto a pier

The police had to cordon off the pier from the human sightseers.
Every so often, Valli would 'make a noise' of warning if people got too close for his liking.
Saw some still photos of Valli with his mouth shaped in the
noise-making position ... looks like he was saying something rude.

Looking on the bright side at least the earthquake gave the media something else to talk about for a change :-)
