    ^^^ Wot they all said.

    Strangely dry.

    White sky.

    Wanly sunny.

    NotSoCold in here at 12 deg, 12 deg in the kitchen, 12 deg in the leanto.

    998.5 mBar, 29.486 in Hg, 748.94 Torr, 14.48 psi, (down from 999 last night), 73% RH (GDR hair), 70% RH (Lidl electric).

    Meanwhile on the 9th of May 2019 I watched "Edge of Tomorrow" whilst NF watched Rashomon (1950).

    Walk (abbreviated) walked in the surprisingly warm sunshine. As is, of course, only right & proper, there were a few spots of rain as I walked in through the back door.

    And I seem to have some dampness in my eyes.

    Lunch: scrambled egg and poached tomato on Morrisons sunflower and pumpkin seed toast, bramble jelly and marmalade on slices of toast, red pippy corner yog, 0.91*1.55 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment: whatever the feck it is that replaces Y&Y on a Friday: this time it's discussing sex ed in skools. It went <click>.

    TWATO, Followed, eventually, by the thing about the EyeRack War at 13:45.

    Trip to that Swansea with the usual 3 bags of books for the nice Oxfam people.

    Naturally enough by the time I reached that Swansea the rain had started so I, and the books, got wet on the way up Wind Street and Castle street.

    I feel sure they were gratified to receive "Numerical Methods: FORTRAN", totally new, unmarked & unread over the 35 years since I bought it. So that was a wise investment of £25 uninflated 1985 quidlets, along with a tome on Digital Logic, and a tome about writing compilers and interpreters.

    If I'd ever read some of this stuff it might have been handy, like.

    Tea: battered cod, some fruit cocktail, a yog (BBE 13/3/23), 0.91*1.51 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment: PM.

    Wheeler Dealers S9 E12 Triumph TR6: bought: £6k, total: £7050, sold: £8k5. It's a "fuel injected" engine with triple twin carbs fitted rather than the Lucas Prince of Darkness injection system. Fuel leak from petrol tank, replaced the Lucas fuel pump with a Bosch, head off to fit hardened valve seats for leadfree, some magic water free coolant, reupholstered seats to replace rotten foam. MOT expired September 2020, Tax expired June 2020. Not SORN.

    Coast & Country ITV1. Carew Castle.

    Baldrick exploring the Peak District in search of Magna Carta.

    Strangest Things: the Gold Hat, the German uranium cube, Harrison's H1 chronometer.

    Secrets in the Ice: Oland Sweden:


    Crashed PV1 Ventura on volcano on Kamchatka from 1944.


    98 bog bodies in Finland.


    The best preserved mammoth calf was dug up in Siberia & proved, eventually, to have drowned 40,000 years ago.

              That's sad. So sorry she's gone.


                RIP Millie


                  Timesheet has been submitted and I'm declaring the weekend begun!

                  Lunch, BTW, was Scotch broth with a crust of wholemeal

                  That was the last of the Scotch broth, but I have the remains of the lamb from the other day so the slow cooker will be making some more overnight


                    Won't put it on Earworms thread as bad timing but had that "Deck the halls with boughs of Holly" xmas song stuck in me head today. Was singing it for ages, substituting actual lyrics with rude words obviously.

                    Bit more toothpaste, I mean footpath, inspection today followed by Loony Lady 1 walk. She gets slower every day.

                      Tea has been southern not-fried chicken and fries with lashings of ketchup

                      The car was a Triumph TR6, which was last taxed in June 2020. Those ones always make me wonder if the purchaser was a victim of the pandemic

                      And most of the gold diggers have very little to cheer about, apart from one family who just scraped over their chosen line at the last moment
