Very sound advice indeed, Gibbo. Having worked in the Middle East I know what the heat can do, and I am glad to say that we NEVER ran out of water or the ability to give drinks to the workers. Having said that, I still played rugby on the desert, in the days when we had the thick-type rugby shirts!:rolleyes: Yes, I qualify for the 'oddball' award!:2fun::2fun:

So the question is when is a desert not a dessert?:biggrin::biggrin: There were about 25 of us Expats on the site and I was the one who was blamed for winding the others up - me, him of the angelic upbringing from the Valleys?:rolleyes: An experience I'm glad I took the gamble on and can look back on with pleasure, often wonder what has happened to the others, some 30 years on!

Excuse me using your thread Gibbo but I've had problems logging in today. Not the first time this has happened and last time you informed the Administrator for me. As I don't know how to do this could you please inform him/her of the problem. Took about six goes before I could get on the site to post.

Many thanks,

Jay. :kissu:

How would minus 37 degrees C suit you? And they played a professional ice-hockey game, outdoors, in similar temps a few days ago.

Maybe we could do a deal - some heat for some ice!

the talk of weather has certainly got my brain into gear:rolleyes: 1965 I had the privilege of going to Jamaica with my regiment for 2 weeks training with the Jamaican Defence Force. We left UK in May in the rain, stopped overnight in Gander where there was a lot of snow and landed in Jamaica in a 'heatwave'! All for Queen and country of course.:rolleyes:
A couple of years later, I went to Toronto where it was 15 degrees below freezing, and certainly not dressed for such weather. I told the barman at the hotel I was going for a walk, and got as far as the front door and returned to the bar! That was worse than I'd ever experienced back home in Blaenllechau, 1000 feet above sea level!:2fun::2fun:

Gee that would have sent your hot and cold sensors in your body into confusion:2fun::2fun:

What was Jamaica like? I would suspect it was a interesting place.
