      Well I have made it to the end of The Curse of Oak Island, Season 9.

      Nothing noteworthy was found across the 25 episodes they dragged the season out for.

      I read somewhere that someone calculated the proportion of flashbacks used in each episode to pad them out and it averaged at 20%.

        It's that brief period of the year when it's light when I go there

              Tonight's major motion picture premiere was one of those films that's been around for ages and generally seems to be considered part of popular culture, but which I'd somehow never seen before: Office Space (1999). Given that I often complain about films going on too long, it's only fair to say that I thought this one could have taken an additional twenty or thirty minutes; but that would have involved developing the story of the reason the scam had gone wrong, and maybe that would have made it too much of a story about bugs in software, which would have diminished mass market appeal even if the likes of me enjoyed it. Anyway, even without the extra minutes, I enjoyed it

              And then, as threatened, Terminator Genisys (2015). I think it's pretty good, even though James Cameron thinks it doesn't count

              But if we're getting into time travel movies, which I seem to have been doing, then it's only right and proper to revisit one of the best that doesn't involve any kind of robots: Time After Time (1979). Who needs robots when you've got Jack the Ripper as the baddy and H.G. Wells as the hero?

              Goodnight all

                Morning all

                Blue sky with high level wispy stuff. Currently 16 degrees with a high of 21 expected. Barometer up to 1024 mBar.

                Up early because sleep eluded me and the Sunday morning drivel on the radio was more annoying than usual.

                Put some laundry in the WM.

                  ^^^ Liked "Time after Time" though it's many years since I watched it.

                  Wot? No signs of Marie Antoinette's jewels, the Ark of the Covenant, Shakespeare's manuscrpts, the Holy Grail?

                  Say it isn't so. .

                  Morning.

                  Dry.

                  Sunny.

                  Slightly cooler at 18.1 deg in here.

                  1021 mBar, 30.15 in Hg, 765.8 Torr, 14.808 psi, (up from 1019 last night), 73% RH.

                  Sunday.

                  Walk (unabbreviated) walked in the grey gloom.

                  Passed a chap doing a litter pick on the way up to the res which means I won't have to bother.

                  Pair of swans on the fishpond.

                  Pair of swans on the first pond.

                  Maybe they'll try again.

                  Lunch: cumberland sausages with onion gravy, a red corner yog (seemed a bit odd but tasted ok), 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

                  Entertainment: Just a minute: not an outstanding ep. Pretty meh really.

                  The usual UFO bollox on Blaze.

                  Freecell score: 92%, running average 85% (84.664%).

                  Entertainment: Shatner's take on UFO Bollox, though this one seems to be focusing on savants.

                  Just discovered I've neglected to wash last night's glass that once contained port. .

                  Tea: baked potato (the last & rather old example thereof) with cheese & baked beans, some fruit cocktail, a yog. 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

                  Entertainment: Shatner's take on The Hollow World: again all it needed was "For the world is hollow & I have touched the sky" (even more under the circumstances).

                  Shatner's take on The Bible, merrily including the Apocrypha, The Gnostic Gospels, the Dead Sea scrolls, & all that.

                  Am Dro at 20:00, which was rather good, Port Talbot, Rhondda, North Wales slate mining, not quite so North Wales. One of them had a diabetic episode on that.

                  What's killing the Whales: PCBs and plastics from the sounds of it, with acoustic noise thrown in for good measure.

                    Dug up one of the biggest tree stumps yesterday from the lawn. That leaves one big one, which is right where we want to put the veg beds. All the other stumps are either small, or not on the grass. Have a few things to plant this morning, then out to visit family this afternoon.

                      Afternoon denizens

                      Quite cloudy out, though in bulky fluffy form rather than overcast, with gaps here and there. Seems quite breezy still. Currently 18°C which is the high for the day, and the barometers are up a little again at 1014/1022mB
