Oh dear. Earlier this morning, on somebody's post, I commented on how many 'tens of thousands'' were being spent on the G7 Summit. I think I said 'tens of thousands' - how very wrong I was! I don't want to go through it all but here are just a few facts garnered from today's Times. Seven point eight million spent on lengthening Newquay Airport's runway to accommodate the landing of Air Force One. In fact probably as much as thirteen million so that the US Contingent of Osprey aircraft could land.All this plus the cost of five thousand Police, four hundred Secret Service Officers and a Warship off the coast. I could go on but I won't - it is all too depressing when I think of the hunger, the suffering, the lack of vaccines etc., etc., in the poorer countries of the world.
Let's try to think of something more cheerful. It is good to see that the identical twin caught by a crocodile and saved by her sister who beat it off by repeatedly bashing it on the nose, seems to be recovering. I didn't know that the crocodile catches its prey and then drowns it by repeatedly dragging it under water. Not the best way to find out this information but it does look as though the young lady is going to recover and that has to be good news.
Although it is now mid afternoon the wind seems to have slackened a little so I think I might go for my walk with Priscilla. The sun has come out and it is certainly not cold. I think, counting the days, we have probably had more Summer so far this year than we had in the whole of last year - and that is good news if anything is. See you tomorrow.
