    well Nick the wide stance delivered a vaguely believable performance so I'm seeing that as a win.

      Telly tonight started with Trucking Hell during and after dining, in which Crouch Recovery go well off their usual patch to get a van from the bottom of a loch

      And then, having not watched one for almost two years, I returned to Wallander with Fotografen (TV Episode 2006). All very uncheerful stuff

      And finally an Air Crash Investigation into an Ethiopian Airlines 737 that took off from Beirut, careered around the sky in all the wrong directions for a few minutes, then plummeted into the Med

      Clear sky and thus cold out tonight: already down to 1°C, but supposedly fog is going to turn up and prevent it getting any lower

      Goodnight all

          Morning all

          Dry and sunny at present but rain forecast this afternoon. Currently 14 degrees and that's the high for the day.

          Did much walking around Valletta yesterday, followed by a good night out. There's some excellent cocktail bars around! A bit sore headed today.

            Morning.

            Dry.

            Sunny.

            Blue sky.

            Frosty out, 13.2 deg in here.

            1039 mBar, 30.68 in Hg, 779.3 Torr, 15.07 psi, 65% RH.

            Wednesday.

            Sheets in WM2 in the hope of drying a little on the line this afternoon before meeting the TD.

            Shopping trip to Tesco via shanks' pony done, dusted, washed, dried, sanitised, & put away.

            Lunch: scrambled egg & poached tomato on Morrisons sunflower & pumpkin seed toasted crust, bramble jelly & marmalade sandwiches on same, a red pippy corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

            Entertainment: waiting for WM2 to finish its cycle so I can peg the sheets on the line.

            I spent 5 minutes this morning waiting for it to go from 0:01 to 0:00, it should be done at about 12:47 but I'm not holding my breath.

            Sheets on line in the sunshine.

            Walk (unabbreviated) walked in the sunshine.

            Freecell score: forgot to look, running average 84%.

            Sheets off the line & in the TD.

            Tea: sausages & onion gravy, not quite as good as Monday's effort but nice enough, the last of the mango slices, a yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

            Entertainment: Discovering Dean Martin.

            Quantum Leap S3 E21 "Nuclear Family": the Cuban missile crisis one.

            NCIS LA S11 E7 "Concours d'Elegance". Mediocre.

            Winter Road Rescue: Blizzard: from 2018.

            Skin A&E: repeat: replaced with:

            Roswell S2 E17 "Cry your name": wherein they killed off Alex due to the actor wanting time off to do "Band of Brothers".

            Roswell S2 E18 "It's too late, it's too bad"

            Roswell S2 E19 "Baby, it's you": the mystery progresses.

              Sunny out, though it hasn't yet moved around enough to defrost the outbuilding roofs round the back completely, in turn suggesting that such fog as there was failed to keep the temperature above freezing last night

              Currently 3°C, which is up 2° in the last forty minutes, with 7° on the cards for the afternoon (if only briefly); and the barometers continue to soar ever upward at 1033/1041mB

              Not a bad night's sleep for the most part. I had a somewhat unsettling dream around six, which woke me up enough to realise that it would probably go away if I went for a piss, so I did and it did. I'm increasingly of the belief that any and all unsettling dreams I have are merely a tactic my unconscious mind has adopted to persuade me to wake up and go for a piss

                I think it was someone on Twitter recently who said that the thing about Nicolas Cage is that he seems to be happy to appear in literally any film anybody asks him to, with no sense of quality control whatsoever. So to a much greater extent than with most stars, it's impossible to draw any conclusion as to whether a film is likely to be any good or not from the fact that he's in it; you have to watch it and see

                  I well remember the dream wherein I was urinating, only to wake up & find that, indeed I very nearly was.

                  Thankfully I was sleeping on my back so a change of underwear sufficed, rather than a change of bedding.

                  Sans eyes, sans teeth, sans bladder control. Ho hum.

                  Then again, compare with Bruce "appear in any old tulipe for one day's filming then stick my picture on the front of the dvd to fool the punters" Willis.

                  I noticed that one of his epics was reduced to £3 in Tesco this morning & it was still too fecking expensive to risk time & money in buying it.

                  I think the last halfway decent film he was in was the "Deathwish" remake.

                    Helped loony lady 2 put up her pictures in local art exhibition. Then nice sunny and quite warm, if a bit boring, walk.

                      Walk briskly walked, green ring closed

                      Set off after four and it still wasn't dark when I got back

                      Quite a nice sunset too

                      And the bed has been stripped to air before putting the clean bedding on. I was going to do a mundane laundry wash today, but I can't be bothered
