Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

If it fines up enough I'll 'think' about trimming the edge otherwise I'll be pondering how my different car works. More bells and whistles than Starship Enterprise.

Is the Dam falling down?
If so, is it the Kariba Dam? This was in danger some years ago caused by erosion in the outfall pools. I've no idea of its current status. It was built by the Italians.

I'm like you and enjoy the spectacle. We have some cracking electrical storms in the tropics and they are frequent, there is so much energy in the air. You can tell when one is approaching, even the "singing trees" go quiet.
