Sage advice Steve777.
You are right in regards to the pressures on kids today compared to our days.

By all means WR, enjoy your drinks, but it's the binge drinking that seems to be the problems these days. That's what leads to trouble.
I had an apprentice working for me a few years ago, and at my annual Christmas party, where I shouted my workers a feed and drinks at a pub, he was the only one that went stupid and drank beyond his capacity. I drove him home and walked him to the front door of his parents house where he was still living because I was so worried about him.
I know it's exciting getting to the legal drinking age, but fair dinkum, this kid, (who was a nice kid) just went silly.
I have no doubts that WR is a responsible young bloke.
It's clear to see on this website.

Sorry to get off topic.
It's now a pleasant 23.4 deg's. Fully overcast and no breeze. Still quite muggy outside.

Seems to have plateaued here now at 27.2C, I don't think it'll make 31C as per forecast.
Still quite humid, and airon on in low fan mode.
Milder again tomorrow, although travelling up to Tamworth in the arvo for work this week- where it looks ok for the week.

Forget it mate. Was just trying to have a bit of fun playing the heat versus cold thing.

Spent half the day buying the wife a new computer and doing the groceries. Now just as I stepped out to work in the backyard some drops of rain start falling. Looks like more on the way for Sydney.

This is cool https://www.windytv.com/?2017-01-10-06,-33.861,151.171,6. Add that one to the others like null school.

Just got back from Sydney, fairly steady drizzle here but only 3mm. 20C but the weather station says it got to 29 earlier with a min of 16 last night. A bit of rain would help to plump up the blackberries, I love homemade blackberry jam.

Thanks everyone for the sound advice. I had a fun time last night, went to a party and had a quite a few drinks, went to bed at 5am and I'm currently hungover. I forgot to drink water last night, ooops.. Hope everyone had an awesome night like me!!

I enjoy cool changes like this after the heat. It's really annoying when it gets cold again after a hot spell but even today is still quite mild. Currently 25C with 21C dew point which rather nice. Would feel hot and sticky on a sunny day though I reckon.

Currently 24.7C, and also apparently "feels like" 24.7C as well - it is nice when they marry up.
Dew point is 20.2C, humidity 76% which is quite high.
Looks like the hot spell is over, for another week anyway, and possibly next weekend.
