Changeable Weather Today.

Swimming Pool.
Erna Rosenstein.

Yesterday afternoon there was an amazing tropical downpour that drove everyone quickly off the streets.

I wonder what effect this had on the Gay Canal Parade 2011, which would have been reaching its climax just around 16.00.

The rain was so intense that I do not think anyone could have carried on dancing during that steady downpour.

This morning we woke to the news of a riot in Tottenham, North London that was triggered by the police shooting dead a man in a taxi last Thursday.

Tottenham has still not recovered from the 1986 riots, nor have all the injustices been corrected.

No wonder that what was seen by the local community to be a public execution has triggered an angry response.

 This is in large part due to the fact that after the 1986 riots the situation was not resolved, it was just hidden.

After a haircut and a lovely shower Richie got me dressed and sat in my wheelchair in time for a short visit from Marianne.

Very pleasant to see her, its been awhile since she could visit, hopefully Marianne will be able to work the earlier shift and be able to visit in the afternoon again.

Lovely to read that you had a visitor, had i been close i may have checked in on you as well.

The weather here is muggy, my permanent position when home is poised in front of the fan as i have no air condition. I do everything late at night as its a bit more bareable. Last night i cooked at midnight, stew chicken foot and curry goat. last night i ate some chicken foot and again this morning for breakfast, yes i said breakfast, it was magnificent and i didn't have to share because my oldest daughter doesn't like it and my youngest who does no longer resides with us. The goat i had today with partha.

Keep on living each day joyfully, my regards to richie.\
