August draws to a close and is certainly trying to leave an impression.

Across most of Europe the weather has alternated between heatwaves and thunderstorms, drought and flood. Most of us in the more northerly climes are not used to baking in a sun hotter, on some days, than that of Africa. Couple this with some of the most spectacular storms I have seen for a long time and it is no wonder that the 'silly season' has seemed even sillier this year.

Ormondroyd has certainly found some more interesting tales to tell in this week's 'Notes' and Bluebottle with his 'So Long...' link takes us to some very funny university courses. Wowbagger is drowning in a sea of goo, whilst Swiv tries out a Clockwork Orange.

On a more serious note the policies of both state and church are questioned and Deakie presents an in-depth study of Mental Health. Colonel Sellers has trouble with officialdom whereas Aaron O'Keefe waxes poetical.

Abi takes a break this week, but 'Ask Prof' returns and so do Greebo and Yossarian. aka relates more spooky tales, Munchkin ends his American Tale and there is yet another report from an h2g2 Meet.
