No surprise there you may say. London, and the UK has a reputation as a ‘rainy place’.
Well, I used to put Charlestonians right and point out that the annual rainfall in Charleston is, at around 52 inches a year, a little over double that of London at about 25 inches.
Well, today in this part of London at least, it’s raining. Even so, it’s not raining heavily. No Ladies and Gentlemen, it’s not Charleston rain, when you get soaked through to your underwear dashing across the parking lot from store to car. No, it’s London rain, which is often not more than heavy drizzle.
I donned coat and cap, and set out. The surgery is only about 5 minutes walk from here in any case, and I am enjoying being able to walk to most of the local amenities once again. It’s not a mile and a half to the nearest 7-11 anymore!

When you’re grilling out, be sure to cook that meat properly – the internal temperature of pork and chicken should be at least 165°F. E-Coli is a bacteria we hear about a lot lately, and it can survive at temperatures up to 122°F.
Also be sure to wash your hands between handling that raw meat, and preparing the salad.
