Weekly Update 19th June 2019

How goes it in your corner of the world this week? We got the full-on British “Summer” going on right now. I shouldn’t joke, especially after last year when it was a 4-month long heatwave that put a lot of people in hospital and almost included myself in that.

Had some good and bad things happen this last week. Let’s start with the “bad” get them out the way.
