    And here we are again, again.

    Morning.

    Dry.

    Cloudy.

    Sunless but at least it's not dark out there.

    16.7 deg in here.

    1011 mBar, in Hg, 54% RH.

    Tuesday apparently, but at least I wasn't so confused that it took five minutes to work that out.

    <hiatus>

    This early morning concert was brought by Hawkwind, being their 1972 epic "Doremi Latidoh" and the earlier 1971 epic "In search of space".

    Only 50 years old & counting.

    I prefer "Doremi" for some unknown reason, "Master of the Universe" being the favourite on the other CD (or album as we used to term such things back in the mists of time, like).

    <hiatus>

    TV Times apurchased once I'd been allowed into the post office due to too many people being in there, though invisible to me, hidden behind some shelves of comestibles.

    Walk walked in the wan sunshine and increasing greyness.

    Didn't seem excessively polleny this morning.

    Mildly inneresting thing on R4: "Dare to Repair" with a brief mention of Tim Hunkin.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000vgh8

    Brief mention of the control freakery of Apple Inc.

    Lunch: Heinz lentil & ham soup with Morrisons wholemeal sunflower & spelt bread, bramble jelly sandwich on Morrisons sunflower and pumpkin seed crust, red pippy corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.



    Entertainment: "Discovering William Holden" on Sky Arts.

    Must watch "The Wild Bunch (1969)" again.

    Abandoned Engineering on Yesterday: film sets: Star Wars, Hudsucker Proxy, Hacksaw Ridge, and something else I've forgotten, oh yes, that Japanese coal mine on an island that got used on a Bond film I've never watched.

    Trucking Hell S1 E7 wherein Rory failed to feature, though the Leicester bus station did, plus the 16 ton thing that fell off a lowloader & brought the M1 to a halt for hours, fortunately without killing anyone.

    Tea: Tesco unchunky breaded haddock, the last of the tinned fruit salad, a yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment: dunno yet.

    Tudur Owen's TV flashbacks.

    "Apollo 13 (1995)" with Tom Hanks, Gary Sinese, Bill Paxton, Kevin Bacon, Ed Harris, et al.

    They're about to stir an oxygen tank.

    I don't think it ends well.

    <hiatus>

    Inneresting film.

    There are two commentaries, one by the Lovells, the other by the director Ron Howard.

      Morning denizens

      Grey day out, only 6°C and no better than 12° expected, with the barometer down at 1000/1008mB

      And the occasional chance of rain has been traded in for a strong likelihood of rain through most of the day, particularly this afternoon when it's on 90% for several hours

      But being able to have a nice hot shower was good

      Having a couple of plums for breakfast as, having been ripe and ready when bought, they were in danger of becoming old and mouldy if I didn't eat them soon

        Once I'm done with E2, in about 45 minutes, I will need to find something else to watch.
        S1?

          Morning all

          Dry and sunny, clear blue sky. It's 7 degrees at the moment and may squeek up to 16. No rain expected. Barometer is way down, to 1013 mBar. Change is afoot...

          Sniffy this morning. May have one of my expired in 2019 hayfever tablets...

          Today's Kantar diary fact is:
          The first official performance of Handel's 'Music for the Royal Fireworks' 1749

            Miss V3 dropped off.

            Breakfast of Kedgeree.

            Off marching on a death march project.

              Paint samples arrived. Both the wrong colour. More samples ordered.

                Lunch has been some of last week's roast topside of beef, thinly sliced and well peppered, in a wholemeal bap

                  Just been for walk with loony lady 2 and another loony lady. Never remember her name.

                  Took a photo of an overflowing dog poo bag box as lots of different colours, better art than anything I've seen at The Tate Modern.

                    I was incorrect. On further inspection, after waiting for the paint to dry, I realised I had opened two pots of the same colour.

                    I have now discovered I do have the right paint sample and an attempt has been made to cancel the order for the other samples.
