      Nor in any other part of Leicestershire as far as I am aware.

        Roast beef bap (wholemeal) and a bag of plain crisps for lunch

        It turned a bit Simpsonesque for an hour or so, but now seems as if it might be starting to cloud over again. The prognosticators are still prognosticating rain and maybe even thunderstorms for later

          I can't think of any, unless they mean the quarry in Swithland Woods where people drown occasionally

              Walk walked.

              In sunshine.

              Well there's a thing.

              Shower required thereafter.

              The Radiomobile 4220 wireless is proving problematic, stuck tuning core in an inductor and a broken core in another.

              Plus oodles of rust in the power pack, not to mention the dire state of some of the capacitors.

              'Orrible 'Unts* as it transpires, all cracked to buggery & no doubt leaking like mad.

              Amusingly enough, I used to build stuff on offcuts of Formica(tm) which does give the unprinted circuits a different sort of appearance.

              I wonder what that string of zener diodes under the chassis is supposed to do.

              One end is floating in the air.

              Must be the aerial zeners.

              *That's Horrible Hunts by the by, Hunts being long gone manufacturers of capacitors with an evil reputation for being direly dire in a very dire sort of way.

                  Very changeable here - sunny earlier, then tipped it down for a while, now back to sunny

                  Temperature hasn't been any higher than 21°C, which is much more acceptable than the recent nonsense

                      Nice and sunny here.

                      GP has decided that the long standing dermatitis on my arms is now actually an infection. I pointed this out to them 2 weeks ago as they always are if they last more than a couple of weeks....
