    Aren't we suppose to be burnt or drowned? As if we then survive we are really witches.

          Family zoom.

          My Niece in her early 30s has breast cancer, luckily they have caught it early and its hopefully treatable. I'm just glad I don't have to be brave like people that suffer such things.

          Dinner was steak & widney pie plus veg.

          ents Worlds greatest ships. Rule Britannia!

          The Cutty Sark, Mary Rose, HMS great Britain, HMS Victory

          I never realised The Great Britain had such a chequered history or HMS Victory was a hulk for part of its life.

            Tonight's telly was some stuff about stealth aircraft on the Smithsonian channel whilst dining, said channel the being allowed to chunter on in the background with something about finding the wreck of a WWII US Navy vessel that was sunk off the Maine coast.

            And then the TV was given a rest as I continued reading Rogue Male. A cracking yarn! Only about forty more pages to go now

            Goodnight all

              Morning all

              Dry out, blue skies at present but a quick look at the forecast says that won't last. Currently 9 degrees and is due to get up to 11 later. There will be sunshine and showers all day. Barometer up to 1005 mBar

              Bins trundled to the top of the stairs.

              Quick dash to the post box before I get my arse stuck in my office chair.

              First coffee awaiting its fate.

              Noticed my spring bulbs are poking through in one of my baskets.

                  Morning

                  Blue sky.

                  Less kiddies around - must all be hiding at home.

                      Morning.

                      Damp though no current precipitation.

                      Blue sky in parts.

                      Sun is shining across the valley.

                      17 deg in here this morning.

                      1000 mBar and 60% RH.

                      Tuesday.

                      Back is complaining mightily at the moment so I suspect potching is off the menu for today.

                      The Back will recover when it starts raining again.

                      <hiatus>



                      Walk walked rather more slowly than usual.

                      Barometer now show 29.62" Hg, 14.55 PSIA (or 1003 mBar, or, if you insist 1003 hectoPascals in that foul Frog unit).

                      <hiatus>

                      Lunch: bit of tinned ham, Heinz pea and ham soup with Morrisons wholemeal sunflower and spelt bread, bramble jelly sandwich on same, red corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea, and another ibuprofen tablet in addition to the extra ibuprofen gel on me neck.

                      I wonder if there's an Old Stoneface film on this afternoon.

                      <hiatus>

                      Old Stoneface is on Film4 from 16:30 to 18:20.

                      The inadvisable potching got potched, when needful doings are calling it's difficult to ignore.

                      Some very rough sanding got rid of some rather soft wood in the doorpost, duly wetrot treated with woodhardener, then primed ready for undercoat the next time the needful doings are calling.

                      <hiatus>

                      Afternoon entertainment: Trucking Hell x 2.

                      Tea: Tesco chunky haddock, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

                      Entertainment: the last 45 minutes of "Casino Royale (2006)" wherein some torture takes place, though the carpet beater is absent.

                      Now some nonsense about all the crazy theories over six seasons of The Oak Island nutjobbery.

                      It has very little time to prove gripping.

                      It failed so to do. Started with Captain Kidd, Sir Francis Drake, the Knights that say Nii! and when it got to Shakespeare I turned it off and read more of "Never Had It So Good" by Dominic Sandbrook, which, now I've got through the rather tedious chapter on literature, Angry Young Men & all that tosh, has progressed to more inneresting themes such as atomic and H bombs, Blue Steel, Blue Streak, Skybolt, and Polaris.

                      Now: Massive Engineering Mistakes on Quest: Skylab, toppling skyscrapers in NY, etc.
