...The sun does occasionally shine in jolly old England. This summer, for instance, I can count several examples of warm -- nay, HOT -- days. And by several I mean two or three. No wait! I believe we experienced the fourth just this week. Not that I'm complaining. Britain is a dream come true for a heliophobe like me. But as evidence that the 'sign and semblance' of summer does occur, I am posting a few photos from an outdoor pub lunch some weeks ago.
