'Ring of fire' eclipse to sweep across Earth

It's celestial showtime on Thursday as much of the Northern Hemisphere gets to witness a solar eclipse.

As ever, the advice is not to try to look at the Sun with the naked eye. This can do severe damage.

Not much chance of seeing it in the UK, less in Greece

Lyme disease and ticks: Ask an expert your questions about how to protect yourself this summer

Ticks are pesky little blighters – crawling up inside your clothes, biting and sucking your blood without invitation.

As the weather becomes warmer in early summer and humans head outdoors to enjoy the fine weather, ticks become increasingly active. That’s when they get you.

They are itch-inducing, irritating pests, but they can also spread lyme disease – a bacterial infection which can cause an array of symptoms, including rashes, joint pains and loss of energy if left untreated.

Whoops, seems the 'Winter bridge' is almost finished and far from finished. Heard one end is about 2' higher than the ground one end, also it won't take vehicles over 25 tons.
