From my diary

A very hot weekend, very suddenly.  Headaches all round, I suspect.  But it reminded me of a verse current among British servicemen in Libya in the 50’s.  There was no air-conditioning in those days, and it could get pretty unpleasant in the summer.

Welcome to El Adem where the heat is like a curse,
And each day’s like the last one,
But somehow slightly worse.

Fortunately this is England, and not the burning desert of North Africa!
