      Quatermass and the Pit S2 tonight: The Ghosts (TV Episode 1958)

      Even earlier night tonight, as I seem to have become completely incapable of getting up unless I've had my eight hours these days

      Goodnight all

        Puddy tat back all in one piece, now resident on Miss V3's bed as per normal, I expect a 4am call when Miss V3 wakes up and realises Mr wimpy the cat is back.

          This stuff would make a nice general thread. Copies, runs off to General....

            Did the dog win?

              Morning all

              Dry. Blue sky with just a chemtrail streaking across. Currently 8 degrees with an expected high of 12. Cloud cover will increase as the day progresses but the sun may make an appearance again early evening. Low chance of rain. Barometer down to 1021 mBar.

              Today's Kantar diary fact is:
              Johann Sebastian Bach dedicates the six 'Brandenburg Concertos' to the Margrave 1721

              I looked up 'Margrave' and it's a title akin to Marquis. Turns out the Margrave the concertos were dedicated to was a chap called Christian Ludwig of Brandenburg-Schwedt. He only warrants a short paragraph on Wikipedia.

                Morning denizens

                The now-traditional grey start, though if the rain that the weather app vaguely spoke of ever arrived this morning, it must have been both brief and light as it's just very slightly damp out, which could just be from a heavy dew. Currently 8°C heading for 12° and a chance of some sunshine later, though also a slight chance of a shower or so around lunchtime; 1008/1016mB

                  Well, you already have gone for it, but you know what I mean

                    My understanding is the cat has now a larger respect for our neighbours dog but he seemed unscarred whereas the dog has a nice new scratch on his nose.

                      ^^^Glad the cat survived.

                      Morning.

                      Damp.

                      Blue white sky.

                      Wanly sunny.

                      No current precipitation.

                      17.6 deg in here.

                      1019 mBar, 30.1 in Hg, 55% RH.

                      Wednesday apparently.


                      <hiatus>

                      Walk walked in the sunshine.

                      Breeze quite chilly.

                      Water level in the res now 15 feet lower than previously.

                      I wonder WTF they're up to.

                      Many bumble bees spotted.

                      Lunch: poached tomato (dunno why I term it poached since all I do is cook it for 2.5 minutes in the poppity ping) with scrambled egg (ditto, 1.5 minutes), on Morrisons wholemeal sunflower and spelt toast, bramble jelly sandwich on same, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

                      No yog since I forgot & it's too late now.

                      The C96 broomhandle reference brought up all sorts of perusing of the interweb re the Webley Wilkinson M1892.455 revolver which would have been an alternative for WSC at the battle of Omdurman, and would probably have resulted in a somewhat different history for the nation.

                      Ah, the dear dead days beyond recall when the opposition were armed with spears instead of AKs.

                      <hiatus>

                      Some minor potching undertaken in the garden & the rubbish sorted for collection tomorrow.

                      Tea: the last of the roast turkey and sausage, more tinned peaches, a yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

                      Entertainment: NCIS S8 E3 "Short fuse".

                      Abandoned Engineering: the Scottish castle where Rudolph Hesse spent some time, a part of the Dead Sea coast that's covered in sink holes, some mysterious underground in Liverpool.

                      Now that's what I call a sinkhole.

                      Williamson's tunnels in Liverpool.

                      Very odd.

                      Prison in Wyoming, complete with gas chamber.

                      Wyoming State Penitentiary.

                      The Julian Gallows. Nice.

                      Elementary S7 E1. Well that wasn't on.

                      So it's "My feet are killing me", with a chap who has four toes rather than five, and they're talking about chopping them all off.

                      Too gross (which is saying something)

                      Thing on PBS about Billy the Kid instead.
