      Autumnwatch was inneresting. The goats and meece particularly so.
      I was an IPSE Consultative Council Member, until the BoD abolished it. I am not an IPSE Member, since they have no longer have any relevance to me, as an IT Contractor. Read my lips...I recommend QDOS for ALL your Insurance requirements (Contact me for a referral code).


        Lovely sod-the-calories dinner of roast gammon, fried eggs, chips and beans

          Well that went out the window: played Freecell: disasterous score: 78%.

          Now watching JFK on More4+1.

          He's in the White House, the Bay of Pigs fiasco, and the Freedom Riders.

          Now he's off to Paris.

          Then off to meet Mr K.

          It didn't go well.

          Next: the Mob.

            Episode four of Surgeons duly watched during and after dining

            After that, I remembered that I watched S1E1 of Life on Mars ages ago, but for some reason never continued with it. So it was S1E2 of that; pretty good for the most part, though I suspect there were a couple of anachronisms in some of the policing terminology used by the 1973 coppers. Then again, if it's all in his head, that would explain it

            Goodnight all


              Well I fell asleep.

                Good morning fine people

                Dull, overcast, damp. Looks like there's been a sprinkling of rain but nothing currently ongoing. It's 10 degrees at the moment with a forecast high of 14 expected. Showers due all morning, should ease after lunch. Barometer up to 1011 mBar.

                First coffee has been made.

                I will do my to-do list, I will!

                  Morning all

                  Wet. Very wet. Very very wet.





                  Dark grey sky.


                  Colder at 15.4 deg.

                  1009 mBar and 66% RH.


                  Oddly I wasn't woken by the recycling engineers at the requisite 06:30.

                  It's too wet at the moment to find out if the bins are empty.


                  First war dialler call of the day: 08:32.

                  They've fixed the clock.

                  Where the feck is 006?

                    Morning denizens

                    Rainy grey day out, though as it happens there's a brief pause in precipitation right now. But despite occasional pauses, it'll generally keep going until mid-afternoon

                    And it's still only 9°C out there, though forecast to hit 14° by nightfall and then maintain that until tomorrow. We shall see…


                      Morning all
                      The guineafowl survived their night up in the oak tree, and I survived the wrath of The Wife (tm) for not putting them to bed.

                      Grey & murky out, but at least it's not raining.
                      …Maybe we ain’t that young anymore
