    Morning all

    CBS, etc down Devon.

      Morning all

      Blue sky with lumps of fluff but it feels dull out. Dry, no rain forecast. Currently 16 degrees with a high of 22 later. Barometer down to 1026 Mbar.

      Finally remembered, despite NF prompting me yesterday, to put some laundry on. Smalls in first as they are more of a faff to peg out. I didn't press the hurry up button so the cycle will take a couple of hours

      Today's Kantar diary fact is:
      'Double Dave' a rare two-headed timber rattlesnake is found at Pine Barrens Forest in New Jersey 2019

      And here is the grauniad article on the event

        Two headed snakes are one thing, it's the three eyed fish you need to worry about.

        Morning.

        Dry.

        Grey. Very grey.

        Sunless.

        Small patch of blue sky spotted heading east.

        Warmish at 20.5 deg in here.

        1023 mBar, 30.2 in Hg, 73% RH.

        Wednesday.

        Walk walked. (Abbreviated).

        Yesterday's unwonted diversion had been removed.

        Poor old tree has the dreaded Red Spot, and there's a number of others with the same affliction.

        It's getting greyer by the minute, verging on very grey across the valley by there, boyo.

        Lunch: scrambled egg and poached tomato on Morrisons wholemeal sunflower & spelt toast, bramble jelly sandwich on same, red pippy corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

        Entertainment: Car SOS 'snot on for a fortnight due to some olympic tedium that's all over 4.

        Instead: Border Patrol (NZ) with those nice NZ Customs & immigration people.

        So far: Nigerian chap getting very exercised and alleging racial profiling: he ended up on a flight back to the UK.

        Took a 30 hour flight to "look at the zoo (unnamed) and beaches (ditto)".

        Next a UK chap probably not innerested in ladies getting up everyone's nose (as it were).

        Not at all suspect having flown in via China & Thailand though they haven't found anything suss in his possessions.

        Apparently his UK passport entitles him to "no let or hindrance" in his travels.

        He wants to flown home business class.

        Then he wants asylum.

        Oh dear(tm), he gets banged up for the night by the plod.

        Now: "UK Border Force".

        Oh dear, this is raising my hackles just a tad.

        Entertainment:

        Taking the back box off the Corolla: the box is ok, it's the mounting connector thing that's fecked.

        I suspect I'll be fettling one up tomorrow since I don't feel like spending £120 for another back box.

        Trucking Hell: very Michael centric. :

        Tea: Tesco breaded cod, some peach slices, a yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

        Entertainment: Discovering Michael Douglas.

        The Joy of Painting.

        Mystery of the Ice Age Giants on Smithsonian.

        "Age of Humans".

        Dr Pimplepopper: finally watched the one with the lady with a horn growing out of the back of her head.

        It was a pilar cyst.

        Chap with a large cyst over his sternum proved impressive due to the quantity of dark grey crap that emerged from it.

        Dr Pimplepopper uses eyeguards during surgery which is rather more sensible than the chaps & chapesses on this side of the pond.

          Morning.

          Sitting in a boring meeting.

          It feels chilly. Some bedding in WM...

            That's why Christopher and Paulie Walnuts couldn't find the Russian - he'd turned into a two-headed snake!

              After a mildly frenzied half-hour or so, I managed to get a QuickSight thing working well enough for some user testing they're doing this morning, and it even made it through the mildly convoluted process of being published to a place where they can access it during said testing

              So with that and the morning standup done, I'm now going to make myself a bit of toast

                    Indeed:

A brilliant film; one of the best journalism films I've seen, possibly even beating All the President's Men, but certainly on a par with it. Highly recommended if you like journalism films that manage to depict journalism in a fairly realistic manner

                      Smalls out of the WM and hung up. Now some whites are in. This time I did press the hurry up button so it'll only take an hour.
