Only mad dogs and Englisms

Only mad dogs and Englisms ... Go out in the mid day sun. That's a song by Noël Coward from the time 1931) that Great Britain still had a lot of win-regions in warmer regions.

These were countries where the 'locals' retreated in the shade and on terraces during the heat of the day, or where they took an extensive afternoon nap.

Only those crazy Brits - and rabid dogs - didn't stick to that habit.

The locals are surprised about it.

In a recent digital contact with a national of another great nation who has already reached its peak, a North American also revealed that midday heat story. We had emailed him a 'clip' of a summer meeting here. It also had some convertibles, 'convertibles' as they are called in the US from A ...

Our American knowledge, a Texan, was astonished. Riding with an open hood in the heat of the day. Bizarre! He only rode topless at dusk.

If he had to go to the shopping mall with his convertible during the day. then he kept the hood tight and put his car with the engine running and the air conditioning on 'high' on the parking.

But yes, for Clifton the sun is a daily burden.

Here, during the summer of 2016, driving open is worth the sin.

Pay attention to dehydration, overheating, burning and heat stroke ...

But especially enjoy the nice weather.
