      Now watching "The Ascent of Man" with Jacob Bronowski.

      <hiatus>

      During episode one, we heard Adagio for Strings: Barber, bits of Pink Floyd though I can't place exactly where it comes from*, and some ?Bach? organ music.

      *Possibly ?Astronomy Domine? which is not one of my favorites

        For tea tonight, a classic from student days which I hadn’t had in a few years: curried mince and chips. Well nice

          I’ve got that on DVD, among my collection of “Great Documentary Series That I Really Should Get Around to Watching” (or watching again in some cases, as I probably saw a lot of TAoM for instance back in the 1970s).

            Me too, I think I watched it some time in the 80s.

            He had an inneresting war.

            So that's they invented Operational Research for.

            Currently watching the thing about Putin on 4.

            We've had the pair who admired Salisbury cathedral.

            I also have TAOM book and "Civilisation" on dvd with the book somewhere or other.

            I knew where it was Next Door but things have moved around since then.

              Civilisation is also in the aforementioned collection

              Haven’t got either of the books though - I should get them.

                After trundling the bins, I checked on my Fatsia.

                It had perked up after watering but I'd noticed the other day that the new leaves were covered in something black. Possibly dirt, probably nasties.

                I sprayed good and thorough with bug killer and saw to my satisfaction that the invasion had reduced.

                I got some soapy water out and wiped off each leaf top and bottom to remove the rest. Hopefully I have saved the new leaves as a couple were starting to look a bit deformed.

                    We've got lots of a japonica around here.

                    Unfortunately it's fecking knotweed.

                    It's quite wonderful when it gets frosted and dies back.

                      So when there’s a comet, and it blows itself to bits, that’s a good omen, right?
