"Interesting that 11% of ballots were spoiled, one assumes most of them deliberately -- and 25% who listed themselves as undecided. That means over one third of voters weren't at all happy with their options."
"The buds were just coming out when it began raining in earnest. It has been raining for days now. The trees seem in suspended animation. The ground plants are growing madly though as long as they have some drainage. Parts of the cities on both sides…"
"Hi Kim, Traditionally the pattern of a haiku is three lines: first and third lines: five syllables, second line: seven syllables. Some of yours have extra syllables. Less traditional, not a big deal."

I (Geeta) can offer up to 3 people a lift from Surrey to Eleusis, leaving at 5 am on 1st June and/or returning to England about 5 pm on 4th June. I can offer one person (or a couple) accommodation on the night before we travel and the night that we return.
