I'm laughing at clouds so dark up above

Britain has been hit (as predicted) by hurricane force winds and torrential rain.

Our giant cosmos plants in the extensive gardens here at Dolores Delargo Towers are currently at a 45 degree angle, and a couple of the leafier pots were on their side this morning, but there's nothing surprising about that. Of course, the transport system across the South East of the UK is disrupted (that happens no matter what the weather - "wrong kind of snow", "too much sun", "leaves on the line"), and some people are without power. However it doesn't seem to have been Katrina so far.

As ever, with our stubborn "Blitz spirit" and - on this Tacky Music Monday - the combined forces of Dame Shirley Bassey and the Hollywood of 1929 superstar team of Joan Crawford, Lionel Barrymore, Marion Davies, Gus Edwards, John Gilbert, Buster Keaton, Marie Dressler, Anita Page, Norma Shearer and the rest, we shall see off this storm...

  1. Of course - although I meant "Don't Rain On My Parade". Great for every occasion!
