Listen in, listen Ian!
That was a cracking thunderstorm wasn't it? I didn't see any hail, but reading about the big hailstones people were reporting reminded me of the time when I was about 14ish I think, and we genuinely had hailstones the size of golf balls. They were amazing - my mum was so excited by it she kept one in the freezer for ages.

I don't really want to take my iPhone to either of the festivals I'm going to next month, but obviously, being a child of the connected generation I don't want to be cut off from the Matrix. Is there anything different about an iPhone sim apart from the fact that it says 'iPhone SIM' on it, or can I just stick it in the old phone I've got from last time I was on O2, assuming I can find it?

Murray's playing well, isn't he? Although I don't think you can really argue that the challenge system is a bad thing, some of the players seem to be occasionally using it in a slightly naughty way, with hopeless challenges to create a slight delay when their opponent's got in a bit of a groove. Tsk, bad tennis players.

The size of golf balls, yes. I witnessed a storm like that as a child, in Evreux. I was quite terrified. Everyone was in the street talking to each other afterwards.

We were in a caravan in the middle of a field in Wrexham for those golfball hailstones all those years ago. It was *terrifying*! Dented the caravan roof, smashed the skylight, tore the awning, smashed all the windows in the site pool and bogged us all down in the field so we had to be towed out by a tractor the next day.
