    As member of comsearch, I'm going out tomorrow to search for hidden knives in local parks. Bleedin' 'eck - what has this country turned into?

    PS If I find a gun, I'll probably hide it in my rucksack if nobody's looking.

      The roast beef dinner came to fruition, and was quite exceptionally nice

      Loads of beef left too, to be thinly sliced and frozen for use in future sandwiches etc.

        HWMBO cooked up some seabass that we bought from the Italian restaurant around the corner. They are providing more of a deli service with a few outside seats while the weather allows.

          New “patio” built as somewhere to put up a small garden table and parasol for the photos.

          It was hot today.

            If you find a gun leave it where it is & inform the plod.

            A chap who moved one and took it to a plod station got done for handling it.

            5 year min.

            Tea: ham and mustard sandwich, several blackcurrant jam sandwiches all on Morrisons wholemeal sunflower & spelt bread.

            Entertainment:

            The Prisoner E3 "Free for All " wherein our hero stands for election.

            The Prisoner E4 "The Schizoid Man " wherein there's a duplicate of Our Hero who takes his place. It's a brain feck sort of thing.

            The Prisoner E5 "The General" wherein our hero disposes of a computer by the simple method of asking it "WHY?" after which it catches fire.

            I had some sort of vague memory that an ASR33 or whatever was used for input but it was much odder than that.

            Then, for a change, "Den of Thieves (2018)" with Gerard Butler et al.

            Den of Thieves (2018) - IMDb

            They went through over a million rounds making this.

            It has about as much relation to Hill Street Blues as HSB has to Dixon of Dock Green.

            Currently watching/listening to what must be the worst commentary in creation on "The General".

            The commenter (Peter Graham Scott) is plainly ancient (odd that) and is waffling on about the crew more than the ep itself.

                Ubisoft in the late 1980s had taken their in-house developers, mainly teenagers, and put them all in a chateau in the depths of the Brittany countryside. The idea was that as there was absolutely nowhere to go and nothing to do, they'd just spend all of their time coding. Not sure how well that worked out; I declined an invitation to go there for a few days

                Some my colleagues went at various times and told me the company had also installed a cordon bleu chef to take care of the developers' culinary requirements, who spent all his working time making burgers as that's all they wanted

                  No telly tonight other than finishing off that thing about the twin brother doctors and coronavirus on iPlayer.

                  Other than that, I read some more of Pepys' diary for November 1663, then made a start on Das Boot by Lothar-Günther Buchheim, later adapted for the film and the TV series (which was actually the film again but with all the stuff they'd had to cut to get it film-sized put back in).

                  Down to 18°C outside, but still around 24° in here

                  Early night now as I'm rather tired

                  Goodnight all

                    Morning all

                    It's currently 22 degrees, with a forecast high of 32 later. No cloud at present some likely later. Barometer has fallen to 1008 mBar.

                    First day back at work. First coffee nearly finished.

                    Today's excitement so far has been in trying to put a SD card into the wrong slot on my PC and it disappearing from view. Currently trying a combination of bluetac and straightened paperclips to try and retrieve it.

                      Morning all

                      Exhausted after yesterday, then The Dog (tw) decided it was too hot to sleep last night, so spent it trying to find somewhere cool in the house.

                      Walked her this morning and now striped off for work. Need to check I don't have any video calls today...
