    It's very impressive the way stuff explodes out of the walls when a lightning strike happens.

    It might well have come down the aerial wire.

    IIRC that Zeity chap lost a 56k modem to lightning and then spent 3 days fixing it with bits from Maplin.

    I wonder whatever happened to him.

        Gammon shredded, veg blended, pulses added: and so the soup begins the second and final phase of its journey into becoming

        It's going to be exceptionally thick, to the extent that I'm wondering if it might end up needing to be diluted for consumption. But that just means I get even more portions than expected

        And I ground a load more pepper into it, just to be on the safe side.


          It's 23°C with a pleasant slight breeze out now, having got no worse than 24°, and quite Simpsonesque

          The internal temperature has reached 25°, but I daresay it'll cool down again soon. Might even have to dig the summer duvet out tonight!


            Just listened to the Comsat Angels' first album Waiting for a Miracle for the first time in a while. Great stuff

            And earlier I dug out the notebook in which I had a track listing of the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band compilation tape I made for playing in the pub nearly thirty years ago, replicated it as an iTunes playlist, and had a listen to that. For something put together on the fly one afternoon before work, it's a very good mix of their extremely varied work


              Just gave the soup a stir. It seems to be approaching the density of a neutron star, but it smells and tastes amazing

              Definitely going to need more water adding but it already fills the slow cooker virtually to the brim, so it will have to be diluted on serving

              And I'm not sure there's enough space in the freezer for all of it, even stored in concentrated form, so I may be eating a lot of it over the next few days


                HWMBO cooked up a storm, inspired by our recent holiday


                  The soup relaxed a little towards the last hour, presumably as the peas and lentils broke down or something, so I didn't dilute it in the end:

                  Very tasty, and six more bowls now packed up and cooling, ready for a night in the fridge after which I'll try to get it in the freezer

                      It seems to be enthusiastically persisting it down. My plants will be happy and I hope that also bodes well for a good night's sleep
