          does seem the lawyers are earning their buck regardless of how dangerous she is.

            Oops, looks like I failed to hit the button to post this last night, so here it is

            Telly was a new episode of Police Interceptors

            All well and good, but it's no Trucking Hell

            But most of the evening was spent reading Gordon Corera's book Russians Among Us, about the Soviet and, later, Russian illegals programme (as seen in The Americans), covering (among other things) the history of such agents and the FBI's operation that culminated in the arrest and exchange of a bunch of them in 2010. Very good reading so far

            Time for bed now though, so I can get a head start on those data visualisations tomorrow

            Goodnight all

              Morning denizens

              Imminently sunny out today once the high cloud clears a bit; 12°C at the moment but could reach a whole 21° later, no rain foreseen (though they said that yesterday) and barometers a sliver down at 1006/1014mB

                Morning all

                It's dull and overcast. No precipitation at present so the bins were quickly trundled. Currently 14 degrees with a high of 20 expected later. It's supposed to only be partly cloudy until early evening when the rain is due to return. Barometer steady at 1010 mBar.

                  Morning.

                  Sunny.

                  Blue sky.

                  Tuesday.

                  Walk (unabbreviated) walked.

                  Now for some more massacre of the brambles/roses/anything else I can massacre.

                  Roses massacred.

                  Lawn strimmed a bit more now the rose isn't taking over.

                  Some weeding done.

                  French rust looks much like Italian rust.

                  In other news, there's a Randolph Scott film I haven't seen on this afternoon "Return of the Bad Men (1948)" with Robert Ryan.

                  More gardening.

                  Entertainment: Trucking Hell S3 E12.

                  Goodness me, she was in "Morgan: a suitable case for treatment".

                  Watched a bit of that painting prog on BBC4, for some reason that chap sends me to sleep.

                  Be worth a fortune if you could bottle it.

                    Cumuli are lingering a bit, so it's sunny spells rather than full-on sunny. Still made it to 20°C out there though, with 23.6° within

                    Lunch has been zingy chicken, tomato and lentil soup with wholemeal bread

                      Seems to have turned distinctly more sunny than spells now
