    Hi Everyone!

    Here's a weekly update on how well people have been doing over at LostCousins.
    • 20 New Members joined the LostCousins site
    • 3,285 New Entries have been added and
    • 186 Relatives have been matched.
    Always good to see New Members joining. Another quiet week this week, New Members added another 20 but New Entries and Relatives Matched were both up this week.

    Good Luck Everyone!

    Not quite, it was someone who - some years ago - had entered the same relatives on two accounts. Closing the duplicate account reduced the number of matched relatives by 202, but won't have impacted other members.

    I have just noticed the absence of the mention of thoughts going out to people who have lost people. Has Covid disappeared in the UK?
    It certainly hasn't here in NZ (so much for the stupid idea of elimination) numbers are still being reported as are the numbers of people who are dying with it and of it.

    No, certainly not - see the chart for England in the latest ONS report . Although the infection rate is much lower than it was at the beginning of the year, it's about 7 times higher than this time last year (though from July last year the numbers were similar to now, and remained around that level for the next 3 months).

    I'm not surprised that with so many storm clouds on the horizon (COVID, inflation, Ukraine etc) some people want to get out into the sunshine rather than sitting indoors working on their tree. Although we have many members in Australia and New Zealand, the membership is dominated by the northern hemisphere.

    Keep those windows closed and curtains drawn to stop the heat getting in.

    That's right, the same insulation that keeps us warm in the winter can keep us cool in the summer - the last time the outside temperature was in the low 30s it was in the low 20s inside our house.

    It does, of course, depend on just how hot it is, and how much breeze there is. Opening windows to allow a through breeze, while keeping curtains closed against the sun, can help to keep the house cooler and prevent it from getting unpleasantly stuffy. If you prefer to keep windows closed during the heat of the day, then keeping them open over night, or opening up as early as possible in the morning, makes a big difference.

    Only if the air temperature outside is lower than that in the house, which will be unlikely during the hottest days.

    That would seem logical but moving air has a cooling effect. So a breeze moving through the house can be both cooling and refreshing, even if it’s warmer out than in. And even if it’s too hot to open windows in the middle of the day, opening them in the very early morning really helps to cool the house and blow away the stuffiness.

    Moving air has a cooling effect because it increases evaporation - hence if you are sweating it will make you feel cooler. But replacing the air in the house with warmer air from outside could be dangerous, so check what the temperature is outside before opening a window otherwise it could make things worse - the forecast for my village projects 27C at 8am on Tuesday, rising to 30C by 9am - in urban areas it is likely to warm up sooner. So if you do decide to get up very early to open the window, remember to close it before breakfast.

    If the air outside is warner than the air inside it's safer to circulate the air in the house using a fan or, better still, an air purifier. Bringing a few pot plants into the house will probably help them as well as you.
