I don't want to alarm you but it's worth knowing how inappropriate and damaging pharmaceutical drugs as proscribed by your doctor can be. Myself I've been hospitalised because of the side effects of medicine proscribed by my doctor. I have many friends on cocktails of medication, often something else is given to deal with side effects of the others. Endless poisoning and by the thousands we die because of. Bad Pharma: How drug companies mislead doctors and harm patients I wish you a long life.

We are experiencing a weak ridge of high pressure 1005mb, so frost this morning and the day gave way to patchy sunshine, warmish when bathed by it. Humidity is 70% which doesn't bode well for the remaining grain and oilseed rape. As a measure, today the solar panels generated 15.257 Kwh of energy. Not brilliant but not bad either. Ballinbreich.

Saturday 15th September, in the middle of the town a loud-speaker from afar muffled in my ears, indicating the riverside Newburgh, North Fife, drawn, I headed that way. Bright and comfortably sunny, amiably littered about Robertson's Quay a gathering of participants and spectators were enjoying the regatta. A few large tents, one for Regatta business and others for light refreshments. St Ayles Skiff Regatta was underway. A strong westerly wind was putting up wee white horses, below is the start of the mens 40+, against the wind and tidal flow Crail and Newburgh battled their way upriver.
