Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
btw, according to this site we have

2007                        2007
Perihelion  Jan   3 20    Equinoxes  Mar   21 00 07    Sept  23 09 51
Aphelion    July  7 00    Solstices  June  21 18 06    Dec   22 06 08

Which, if untangled, says, I think, that the summer solstice this year is on June 21st--today!  At 18:06...hmmm...I think it means that at midday today the sun is at its highest point in the sky at local noon (plus BST = 1300), and it got up earliest this morning and will go to bed at its latest this evening.  And then winter will be on its way.  But first the summer!
