            Time for a story:
            We lost out on our 15 mins of fame yesterday.
            We had spoken to a friend of ours who is a pitcher for TV ideas (she was behind the original Big Brother and Naked Attraction)
            A dilapidated manor house was on the market. It was big and had a couple of acres of land. We were interested in buying it and doing it up as a TV show. The twist from the other shows is that for half a decade it was lived in by a group of nuns.
            We were hoping for "Escape to the Convent"

            Probably needed about £150-200k spent on it, and I would have paid up to about £750k for it. Done right, it could be sold on for a good profit. It sold well above our offer.

              Exercise bicycling done, green ring closed

              I'll need to wash this ragged old shirt again soon as the last few days exercising have been an extremely sweaty business

              Still only 19°C here, but humid. And still 25° in here.

              While on the contraption I finished listening to the BBC-NRK podcast Death in Ice Valley. Interesting stuff

              Now I need to decide what to listen to next time; probably Tales from the Ring Road, as one of the episodes is about Bedford and, from the blurb, covers the strange world of the Panacea Society who believed the Garden of Eden was located on Albany Road, near the town centre; and a jailed helicopter pilot whose book about his experiences in Bedford Prison I've read

              I went into Bedford Prison a couple of times when our school's debating club (which they insisted on calling called the Union Society like it was an old university or something) went to have debates with the prison debating club (which was just called the debating club). I reckon Society At Large will, overall, probably have benefited more from a bunch of public schoolboys meeting and getting some understanding of (mainly working class) convicts than the other way round

                  It's warm and humid here. My feet are too hot, which is annoying me greatly as it's not really practical to sit at my desk with my feet in a bucket of cold water.

                    You might just get the extreme western edge of it if you're lucky.
                    Our forecast has been reinstated at 80% around 13:00, though it seems to be dithering around over near Peterborough at the moment
