Waste of time. I can't even be arsed to look up the IMDb link
    It's amazing the stoicism required for some of these epics.

    Though I was quite surprised how easy to watch "War of the Worlds" was the 2nd time around.

    It must be a mood thing.

    Even Bruce Willis does it right now & again even if the physics is crap.

      Last breakfast in Portugal being eaten. Passenger Locator Form completed ahead of my return to the UK later. I wonder if anyone will want to look at it this time?

      Currently 9 degrees with a bit of cloud. Forecast to reach 20 later.

        Postcode prefixes are vague and arbitrary symbols of the way the GPO envisaged postal deliveries might henceforth be arranged in the 1960s
        Maybe they'll replace 'em with that What3Words thing. Got the app on my phone in case I have a heart attack or summit when on my walks but my cheap old phone takes so long to get a dodgy GPS signal I'd probably have snuffed it by then. Probably better to shout F* SH* A* at the top of my voice. Somebody might hear.

            You will be disappointed when you get back.

            Nice and grey here with a high of (checks weather app) 12 degrees but no rain.

                Got a massive pile of logs from a dead old oak tree cut down earlier this year. Posted on Freecycle and got 5 responses in about 10 minutes. Bloke coming with a truck in a couple of hours.

                  Glass of wine in the hotel garden.

                  Lovely day, a very comfortable 19 degrees at the moment with light cloud cover. It's really quite hot when the sun comes out so I made HWMBO move to a shady seat (as I am pale and feeble)

                  Taxi coming at 1330 to take us to the train station.

                    Walk walked.

                    The deceased fox seems to have disappeared.

                    Which is good since it was stinking.

                    Lunch: Heinz tomato with a hint of chilli soup, Morrisons wholemeal sunflower and spelt bread, bramble jelly sandwich on crust of same, yellow corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

                      Afternoon denizens

                      Grey day, neither warm nor cold at 11°C. The forecast says no rain but I reckon I can smell it in the air now and then, and the radar shows a shower or two in the vicinity
