    Afternoon denizens

    Cloudy grey day today, though not rainy and expected to start brightening up later and maybe even clear up completely in the evening. Mild too, being 18°C and likely to reach 20°; the barometers are up to 1003/1011mB

    Morning.

    Saturday.

    Dry.

    Grey.

    Wanly sunny.

    Cool in here at 18.4 deg, 19 deg in the kitchen, 18 deg in the leanto.

    1009.5 mBar, 29.81 in Hg, 757.18 Torr, 14.64 psi, (untapped last night), 77% RH (GDR), 72% RH (Lidl electric).

    Meanwhile on the 29th of September 2019 DaveB's dog learned that whilst ducks may float, dogs don't, other than that there was discussion of defining 30 light years in km.

    Shopping trip to Morrisons done dusted washed dried sanitised & put away. It rained a little on the way back.

    Walk (unabbreviated) walked in the grey gloom. It rained more on the way back.

    Lunch: beans on toast etc.

    Entertainment: bits of Dead Ringers and the 13 o'clock news.

    Off on a little jaunt later, involving one of those metal tubes that go through the air.

    Tonight's major motion picture premiere was Amadeus (1984), being one of those films I've somehow managed not to see before in all of the forty years since it came out. It's very good as these things go

    And then a rewatch of Yesterday (2019), mainly because I've got 1,858 films on the Apple TV and Apple provide no useful way of looking through them other than from A to Z. It takes quite a while to look through them all when you're not sure what you want to watch next and you start from Amadeus, and by the time I'd got to Y, I just thought "That's fun, I'll watch that again" with the vague sense that otherwise I'd finish up on Zero Dark Thirty, or maybe get into the numerals (for they don't sort by ASCII or Unicode, where numbers come first) and end up on 300 which is excellent, but not where I wanted to be tonight

    And then another episode of The Wire

    Goodnight all

    Tea has been chicken in red wine sauce with chips and peas

    Accompanied by an episode of Trucking Hell in which Crouch Recovery had to go and rescue an Iceland van that was stuck on a grass verge in Braunstone Lane, which would be one of the vans based at the shop close to my old flat

    Only saw three flats in the end, rather than the four expected, as one had been let between the day the appointment was made and today.

    Sadly none were quite right and the search continues.

    Much walking done, an estimated distance of 4.1 miles according to Google Maps

    I need to poke the new sysadmins about that. The email config looks OK to me, so I can only assume the problem lies with their outgoing mail server
