Why don’t canals flood?

Where the heck has January gone? It's supposed to last about 3,000 days after the excitement of Christmas and New Year, this January has just zoomed by.  Whoosh. It came to my attention the other day that the last thing I rattled on about was phone batteries and that was away back in December, the … Continue reading Why don’t canals flood?
