    Cretin.

    Only slightly lucky to be alive.

    Riding a penny farthing on grass.

    Should be locked up for his own safety.

        I think I watched an episode or two thereof and then got sidetracked. I should probably revisit it

        Meanwhile, here; TV dinner was the final Warship thing, wherein (spoiler alert) they all get Covid and the frigate that has just been warding off nosey Russian battleships has to return to port ASAP in case everybody is incapacitated; a useful reminder that pandemics can have wider implications than not being able to go to the pub

        Then things get even more complicated in Only Murders in the Building S1E6, To Protect and Serve (TV Episode 2021). But I'm sure it'll turn out OK

        And then I rewatched Code of a Killer (TV Mini Series 2015) which is another of those ITV true crime things that is so good it won't let me stop watching; though it's also set three miles down the road and on the university campus, which draws me in even more. Anyway, it's extremely good, and it's a good thing that Colin Pitchfork got recalled to prison recently once the strange decision to release him on probation was proved to be the mistake everybody round here said it was

        But those trees on that specific path across the park had only been planted in 1981 so weren't full-grown in 1984, and there were no undergraduates (well, none to speak of, and certainly not organising demos) on campus in September 1984 because the university year starts in October

        And nobody in their right mind would organise a demo on that rather bleak bit of paving between Physics and the steps down to the Adrian Building where the Biology people lurk; though they do make good use of those steps for dramatic purposes

        Anyway, enough of that! It's great even if you know those minutiae about the Uni campus, and available with ads on that ITV streaming app if you don't want to pay for it

        Goodnight all

          Big moon overnight, and what clouds there were earlier have blown through. A few branches down on the lane, but nothing major.

              Morning all

              Cloudy but dry. Currently 4 degrees ('feels like' 0) with sunshine and showers forecast.

              Looks like the storm passed without incident.

                If you're up in Weegieland, tomorrow's storm is expected to bring a bit of snow.

                  We had a flurry of something that was hail/sleet like but it was short lived and now it's quite bright out.

                    Afternoon denizens

                    Grey out and still a bit windy. The weather app speaks of drizzle, but it doesn't seem to be happening in the actual world outside the windows. Quite mild at 10°C, and the barometers have rebounded a bit to 1000/1008mB
