Heard one of the seasonal firefighters was supplementing his income with a (big) bit of cannabis dealing. Argostoli police arrested him and several accomplices late last week and confiscated a significant amount of cannabis plus associated equipment and cash.

E-cigarettes face public area ban

Authorities are set to implement a ban on the use of electronic cigarettes in enclosed public areas as part of a pledge last week by Health Minister Andreas Xanthos to strictly enforce smoking laws that have largely been flouted.

Monday’s best TV: The Secret Life of Kittens
8pm, Channel 5

First of a two-part documentary promising an intimate glimpse of the first 12 months of feline life, which is likely to measure its success principally by the number of times it can make its viewers emit noises of simpering appreciation. Expect some insight into the formative experiences that shape a cat’s personality, although anybody who has one won’t need telling that they are passive-aggressive connivers from birth. Still, though: kittens. Andrew Mueller

The EMSC is looking for volunteers in a Citizen Sciences project named Quake Catcher Network (QCN) in which everybody can become a citizen seismologist and share data with the community.

I think you may be nearer the mark Maik. It will certainly be much warmer than of late. It just seemed odd that this forecast was quoting these figures for June. I will watch it to see when/if they downgrade these temperatures.

Yes, a big, sudden jump from mid-twenties to mid-thirties: 40+ in mid-June might be too much, too soon!

Am now seeing 38 rather than 40 + 42?

Freemeteo have downgraded their forecast to 38c on Saturday and 37c on Sunday. Other forecasts seem to be around these temperatures. No idea how I will manage to do the 207 kms of the Bike Challenge on Sunday in that heat!

Are you allowed to just do the first 7 and save the 200 for a cooler day?

Look on the bright side, Rog: more reliable forecasts are estimating weekend's max temps being in low thirties.

Have fun!
