It is raining in the UK at the moment, and that fact led us to realise we needed new umbrellas. Me because mines pretty broke now, and Dawn because, like a lot of her things, lost her last one.

So why does this mindless rambling about umbrellas deserve a blog post? Well, one, because its my blog and I'll post what I like, and two, because my new umbrella has a fantastic automatic opening action that I discovered after I'd decided to buy it! Check out the groovy video below (sorry the brightness isn't great).

Is that cool or what! I like to think it sounds like “click...whooommmph” Having it rain on the way to work shall now be an enjoyable experience, I can pull out my umbrella, “click...whooommmph”, and be the man about town.

Yeah, I know, I'm cool.
