But I find the cold water better...

And it works!If you need to cool off, run a basin full of water (the cooler the better but doesn't matter as long as it is less than body heat) and just immerse your forearms in the basin. As long as the water is even slightly less than your body temperature you can lose a lot of heat that way and stay cool.

I could have done without that memory returned. Larry Lamb was in there somewhere. I seem to recall it was not sultry at all on that day on the ferry. Kate just pretended the wind and the rain - almost - was sunshine.

You know the one. Topless bathing in the north sea. Mon 29 Jun 2009 14:14:40 GMT+1 U12196018 http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2009/06/it_is_sultry_today.shtml?page=57#comment15 Today is indeed muggy.

Politicians. BBC personnnel (although I never quite pinned down the Mair's cost to Great Britain - and whatever Sequin might cost - it is tremendous Value For Money in my opinion). Other BBC stars like Ross and Norton.Prince Charles and now the rest of the Royal family. Bankers. Footballers and other sports stars.We will soon have a programme about all these people. One shot of say a Royal Family member just saying " Sixty Nine pence!"I will not be watching.My cost? To the Nation?Not a lot it seems. Sorry Mr Paul Daniels.

The former might I suppose be thought of as "just London really", but Bristol certainly isn't, and the word I'd use for last night here is "muggy", not merely sultry.

Eddie, you've gone up in my estimations; first Joanna Lumley, now Kate O'Mara - there are no others for me. Forget the superficial content the BBC require of your programme and website. We've heard enough from Cameron, Brown, Hague et al, - they simply depress the nation. Interviews and photographs of Ms. Kate O'Mara and Ms. Joanna Lumley will revive the country's spirit and inspire optimism.

Perhaps she is holding on too tightly?

With heels of any size she could be shoulder to shoulder with Ernie.SSCat (8) - Perhaps she has persuaded both of them that it's nice out.

Now who could possibly be *more* sultry than Kate O'Mara, and what is she doing to make the lads grin so?

Perhaps we should urge Kate, a la Sanford, to reveal "the two magnificent parts" of herself.Oh Eddie! Please carry something about Mr. Sanford. The story just gets sillier and sillier!

She'd have come up to dear old Eric's navel, even in high heels.
