I've got a break from coding in an hour or so (got to be strict in the home
office, not spend too much time on-line - d'oh! too late). I'm heading down
the beach, as is fast becoming my habit; floating around in the lazy swells
of a calm bay, pondering the horizon and the sky. It does wonders for
residual stress.

So when I'm bobbing about, blue sky, blue clear water, golden sand, maybe
I'll put some think time in on whether I could live without that snow. Or
maybe I wont bother...

Should be cheap; there's a lot of (populated) islands in the south pacific
who are worried about going under in the near future. I reckon they might
sell up for plane fare.
