    It's been a good series, very interesting.

      You rush to your phone and it's an automated scam call pretending to be from HMRC.

      Like HMRC would call you before 9am...
      I received a pre-9 am scam call too! Mine was a robotic voice telling me my Amazon Prime would be renewed automatically if I didn't do some shizzle or other.

      My Dad says he gets the Amazon call regularly.

        I had that one yesterday as well. Obviously they didn't realise our clocks had gone back

          I had a call at 07:31.

          I never answer the phone since it's always some scumbag trying to scam Strangelove Pater.

          It's a bit of a waste of time having the phone really.

          Been clearing up crap down the garden around the hard soft standing where I park the car since the garage is full.

          All being well, once I've finished pillocking about I'll get someone to dig it out to a foot deep, lay hardcore, and put a concrete hard standing there so I can extend the garage to take yet more junk.

          The foot is complaining a lot today.

          No comparison with a good big sebaceous cyst though.

          And with that it gets darker & darker until we have a flash of lightning and a clap of thunder.

          Other sorts of clap are readily available.

          Thankfully the chimney removal was completed before the Last Trump sounded and the rain, hail & murrain of beasts commenced.

          In other news, yesterday's bonfire duly consumed everything I'd put on it.

          I may put the ashes on the compost heap once it's stopped raining, hailing, and murrain of beasting.

            Turns out I need to write a wordpress plugin for the very simple task I need to perform and spend $60 for the plugin that does the other half of what I need it to do.



            Ho hum..,

                  Also if you saw how the dependencies on this website now you would laugh. For the directory of members it goes

                  Cloudflare -> Reverse Proxy > Wordpress > azure function

                  and every bit apart from the reverse proxy has caching (the reverse proxy really just handles ssl).

                      In other news, during the rain, hail, and murrain of beasts, I'd left the gardening gloves on the wall and the gardening shoes outside the back door.

                      Now drying in the breeze from the dehumidifier in the salting house.

                      Doh!

                      Lunch: poached tomato and scrambed egg on Morrisons sunflower and pumpkin seed toast (thick crust), bramble jelly sandwich on Morrisons wholemeal sunflower and spelt bread, yellow corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

                      It's septicland.

                      A lot of the Dr Pimplepopper patients probably can't afford doctor's bills.

                      Then again, getting that sort of stuff done in this country seems not to be an NHS funded thing judging by the Harley Street dermatologists on the telly.

                      The funniest one was the "Skin" prog from BBC3 where a chap with a lump on his forehead had a GA for something that other doctors would have done under local.
