I use Fairy green cleaner, it gets rid of any grease and dirt and leaves our white cupboard doors sparklingly clean. (sometimes hubby does it!!).

Maz, does the label of your Orange Power say it contains citrus oil by any chance? We buy little bottles of `Sticky Stuff Remover' from a company called Lakeland and this is citrus oil. It's meant for getting the remains of sticky labels off things but I find it useful for other similar cleaning tasks. Citrus oil is a thin terpene oil and it's a bit like white spirit as far as dissolving things is concerned - but it smells lovely and is safe to use (except for a very few people who are allergic to it).

Total used to make a de-greasing fluid based on citrus oil.

Glass falling now (29.4"), damping a bit and overcast but no frost.

Adelaide had 36C today, 7.30pm now and feels like it is trying to rain.  It's Australia Day for us tomorrow and ofcourse a public holiday (yippeee!) and 29C.  An outback town in Sth. Aust. called Coober Pedy had 47C today - they build their houses underground to keep cool and that's where our world class opals come from, imagine seeing those beautiful colours shining from your internal house walls.  Swan Reach, a very popular and well populated town in north-west Victoria is being evacuated cause a flood 9miles deep and 4miles wide is making it's way to the town, it should reach there in the next couple of days.  Our government social services department has so far given out $225M to flood victims.  Adelaide is on high alert for bush fires at the moment.      Ah! Australia.

Rained this morning, then fog came down at lunchtime, although it has cleared somewhat now. Glass has dropped to 27.

Moh, your barometer puzzles me, does it say on it what the calibration units are? Mine's old fashioned and marked in inches of mercury. It's on 29.3 this morning. Raining hard at 7pm last night, damp but no rain this morning. We are to get colder and brighter I think as we move into another high. Nothing severe expected.

You think Moh's barometer is confusing, Stanley....I am in stitches over our Cathy's flood which is "NINE MILES DEEP".
Time to load the animals and cut the ropes folks!
(more like nine metres Cazza....were you multi-tasking again?...wine in one hand and fag in the other and trying to type at the same time as watching TV?)

The temperature has fallen 3 degrees in the last 2 hours and a stiff north easterly breeze has set in. Brrr. My digital barometer showing 28.73 this morning Stanley, and the old one about 28.9. I saw the folk on "The Edwardian Farm" making a crude barometer from an upturned bottle and a jar of coloured water. I must give it a try.

Deep as in spreading backwards across the land.  I give up trying to keep people up to date with what is happening here, get little or no response anyway.

Cathy, it's just that they are in Barlick and you are in Australia - if I told them what was happening in Somerset they wouldn't have much interest! And there is the time difference too (between Barlick and Oz, not Somerset!). I saw what you wrote on here about the Great Barrier Reef and the danger from the flood waters. Several days later the BBC news mentioned it, perhaps they got it from you! How are the floods affecting people like yourselves in other parts of the country? Does it cause any problems with supplies of food or drinking water?
