Blog: Olly WehringSending out an SOS

Ah, August: You are like a month of Sundays, with lots of sunshine, plenty of R'n'R and very little else going on.

Hell, we even came close to covering a press release today that carried the title 'The World's Largest Message-in-a-Bottle is Lost at Sea'.

The bottle, which was released near Tenerife in March by Norwegian soft drink brand Solo, has gone missing somewhere in the Atlantic.

Now, back to my deckchair.
