Sun: Solar activity is very low. None of the six sunspots poses a threat for strong flares.

The annual Perseid meteor shower peaks, Aug. 12-13, as Earth passes through a stream of debris from Comet Swift-Tuttle. Forecasters expect peak rates of 30 to 40 meteors per hour, less than usual because of the glare from the waning supermoon.
 
Stoke kick off the new Premier Soccer season with a home match against Aston Villa. We should beat them.
And of course we have the 5 th and final test against India starting Friday, I have a final day ticket for that. I hope it goes that far!
