I think the air's a little TOO hot.I'd just like to thank my Dad for letting me know that Lisa and I weren't the only people to take a hot air balloon ride last weekend. Some people in Canada took to the skies just a few hours before we did, and according to the Daily Telegraph one of them was celebrating her birthday too. I remember feeling slightly regretful that I didn't have a video of our flight, so I'll just have to make do with this one. The words 'never again' spring to mind. Although, on the plus side, I'd probably find it a lot easier to get out of the basket if it's on fire.

Anyhoo, I'm off to see the beardies today. The championships were previewed on both the BBC and ITV regional news last night, and one reporter managed to interview a few of the contestants on Brighton seafront, which led to this revealing little insight into the world of competitive beard-growing:

Reporter: How did you get started?
Competitor: I stopped shaving.

Ask a stupid question...
