    Fancied a pint out last night but had no cash so went to the hole in the wall.

    Got caught in a proper downpour, as did a gaggle of young lasses.

    That's odd, thought I, nobody was running for shelter.

    They certainly would be running for shelter back in the UK.

    The difference of course is that it's warm here.

    Nobody is going to get pneumonia from a good soaking.

    There is no junk, it's all useful* equipment

    Well their exams have finished, so I don't tend to see any of them until September, when the retread exams happen.

    Summer project: moving the fecking lab down 4 floors, 200 yards downhill & up 5 floors.

    It's only 7 years since I moved it 500 yards up hill & up 4 floors.
