      Made a tomato soup before the tomatoes turned into a new life form.

      It's not bad, even for me.

        Some barely detectable snow has arrived, though it might have stopped again already

          You reminded me that on my wanderings this morning I saw someone jet washing their front path and front door.

          I was too shocked to inform him it was probably best to do that next week.

            That's tomorrow's links sorted

            TBH I wasn't really in the mood for sorting them out tonight, but I forced myself to do it. Tomorrow me will thank me, but tonight me is still a bit annoyed about it


              No telly tonight, though of course there was Monkey Life in the afternoon

              Goodnight all



                  Morning all

                  Overcast, signs of damp on the ground. On closer inspection, some of my plants have snow on them Currently -1 ('feels like' -6) and apparently there's sleet going on at the moment (there isn't). Moderate change of precipitation today in the form of snow/sleet. The weather app looks more like a random number generator than usual. Barometer down a touch to 1004 mBar.

                  I'm supposed to take a parcel up to the post office today...

                  Today's Kantar diary fact is:
                  Aged 80, authour and pioneer of the 'Haynes Manuals', John H. Haynes OBE dies 2019

                  This event was recorded in the Dead Celebrities Thread but not until 12 February

                    Blue sky with white fluffy clouds.

                    Cold in here at 15.2 deg.

                    1005 mBar, 29.68 inHg, RH 54%.


                    Telex machine gleaming oh so very brightly.

                    Some of the dreams probably account for a portion of that.


                    Walk walked.

                    Sprinkling of powdery snow falling but nothing to speak of.

                    Snow on the hills further up the valley, there's tidy then, boyo.

                    Very lazy wind, blows straight through you.

                    And it's quiet out there, I reckon the Apache are up to sommat again.


                    Lunch: scrambled egg and poached tomato on Morrisons sunflower and pumpkin seed toast (non crust, non thick crust), bramble jelly sandwich on same x 2, red corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

                    Dunno what to do this afternoon, it's cold out there & not much hotter in here.


                    Dug the Lidl(tm) padded insulated overalls out from under the stairs where they've lived since I changed the fuel tank on the Seicento years and years ago.

                    Inspected the sheds & garage & determined it was too cold to bother potching out there, so filled in some of the potholes on the back lane.

                    Because some oik has parked a car in an awkward place, the builders vans have increased the width of the road at that point, and since the ground is very soft, there's 8" deep potholes there.

                    Now they're 4" deep potholes with nice spiky rocks at the bottom.

                    I'm sure my work will be appreciated no end.

                    Tea: more of yesterday's roast chicken with a cumberland sausage and a rasher of thick bacon, random yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettei tea.


                    Smithsonian: How they make Heinz Baked Beans: very inneresting, especially since the Port Talbot steelworks is featured in the recycling part, recommended.

                    The recycling machine, the bean cooking machines & especially the warehouse is very impressive.

                    I've been in the 3M warehouse which was about 40 feet tall, this one must be 80 feet or more and totally automated.

                    It's warm in the warehouse because of the heat from the recently cooked beans.

                    Medical Detectives: the hanta virus outbreak in the Navajo reservation & how they figured out what it was.

                    Scotland from the sky: whisky distillery on Islay.

                    Feck me, now they're stringing electricity pylons with a helicopter.
