Thinking tights

This new brand of tights has just hit the shop shelves, or maybe I have just seen them for the first time. Micro sensors that tell the tights it is cold so will warm you, know when it is hot and cool you. Can this be true? Pretty amazing tights I would say. Scanned image attached.
I spoke to Russell and he is a happy man, Jared is going to work at an Italian restaurant, Steven is going to work for a new company called Wet and Wild. I know it sounds a bit like a condom advert, it is actually all about travel and the sea. Irene is talking Russell for his 55th birthday for a holiday cruise to the Med. Matthew is studying on, so seems to be left out of all the fun. Talking of birthdays, does anyone know when my father was born? I am sure it was in March.

Read this by Shelley;
And the sunlight clasps the earth, and the moonbeams kiss the sea;
What are all these kissing worth, if thou kiss not me.

Such sadness in this poem of love, longing and want, dreaming of his only love.
Beware the Ides of March. I think it was Julius Ceaser that that said those famous line or was it Brutus? Maybe the teacher in our family can enlighten us. Well I came through the Ides of March and hope you all did as well. David Livingston, the great explorer did not, he died on the 15th March (Ides of March) some where in the middle of Africa. The story goes that they sent his body to the closest British garrison without his heart. Some African chief said, 'You can have his body but Africa gets his heart.' Not sure if it is true but make for a good story.

Whole gambit of weather this weekend and it is only Saturday. Started with steady drizzle and then glorious sun and mild breeze. Then the dark clouds descended and we have had hail with strong wind. Now weather forecaster man explain that one.
