    Fry-up for lunch

    By great good fortune I ended up with the latter part of Countdown to watch whilst eating. Got the two numbers games I saw with ease, and also solved the conundrum within the time limit, which neither of the contestants did

    When are you going on?

    You will have to ensure your hair is dyed fully grey though so you look old enough.

    No dye required

    It was suppose to rain an hour ago.

    Now it is going to rain as soon as I go out.

    They pretend it's all "low pressure over Iceland" and there's nothing they can do about it, yet it gets rescheduled like this with suspicious regularity

    Allegedly, there's been 200mm a.k.a. 8 inches of rain in the Lake District.

    The third chunk of beef from Sunday has just been consumed.

    It was very nice*.

    The carrots were like bricks despite 20 mins of nuking.

    The tedium of the afternoon was slightly relieved by a bit of electronicking with a 60kHz bandpass amplifier since I had a bit of a brainwave about my MSF receiver recently.

    Instead of toroidal transformers I used a couple of ready made inductors out of the stores and resonated them with some capacitors, also out of the stores.

    Twas inneresting to see how the coupling coefficient alters the pass band, just like wot it says in the literature, principally the 1937 version of Fred Terman's tome "Radio Engineering".

    I'm quite sure that none of you are in the least innerested but it enlivened an otherwise tedious couple of hours.

    *It was ok, but I thought it a bit tough. Maybe I'd cooked it too much again.

    Itís a worthwhile option if your car is parked outside and not used all the time
    Nice charger but some scrote would nick it.

    Anyway car is due to be replaced for a petrol model.

    Weird old people on my train. Must be their monthly day out.

    Also why must some women put make up on?

    She has got a tonne of make up on already. I think it is to hide acne. Unfortunately she looks worse...

    Sounds good to me, though I'd have to spend a while on Wikipedia to work out what it's all about
