    Morning.

    Was dry when I filled the bird feeders, then it rained.

    Grey.

    Sunless.

    Warmer at 14.3 deg in there, 13 deg in the kitchen, 12 deg in the leanto.

    1010 mBar, 29.8252 in Hg, 757.56 Torr, 14.6488 psi, (up from 1009 last night), 76% RH.

    Sunday.

    Meanwhile in the preplague 8th of March 2019 some oik wanted to glue sheets of polycarb together but I couldn't find a respirator that allowed this when using The Nasty Stuff required, and a reference to dear old Rudyard Kipling, Afghanistan, and intermediate calibre rifles was included. Gunga Din got a mention too.

    Half the Christmas cards are written (involved a lot of sherry, which is only drunk when writing cards)

    Early one, but TFBSZ.

    Tea, then, has been roast chicken leg and chips with lashings of ketchup

    Now there's an inordinately long advertisement for a mattress topper, claiming it has remarkable properties. I'm not an expert in such matters, but I'm willing to give it the benefit of the doubt. Not going to buy one though.

    The TV is on a channel I don't normally watch and that Judge Judy has come on. I've never watched it before. Everybody involved, including the judge, seems irredeemably stupid, and I very much doubt any of what's going on would be allowed in an actual courtroom, not even an American one

    I made too many roast potatoes the other night, so late lunch has been the surplus spuds with some beef and gravy

    Afternoon denizens

    Gloomy grey day out, though that means it's comparatively mild at 12°C. The barometers are up somewhat at 1010/1018mB

    Nice to hear lm is about to get embroiled in a real-life episode of Bron/Broen

    And one doesn't hear the word "titivate" being used much any more

    Afternoon all

    It's been a cloudy day but dry. 12 degrees and that's the high for the day. Barometer was up to 1023 mBar when I looked at 0830 this morning.

    Currently in the first lounge at T5 having gotten up a few hours earlier than necessary to meet friends here before they went away for the weekend. HWMBO and I are off to Copenhagen where has official work and I'm working too.

    for the dog.

    Morning.

    Damp. No current precipitation.

    Grey.

    Sunless.

    Chilly in here at 13.8 deg, 12.5 deg in the kitchen, 12 deg in the leanto.

    1017 mBar, 30.03 in Hg, 762.81 Torr, 14.75 psi, (down from 1019 last night), 77% RH.

    Saturday.

    One sees that there's a couple of previously unwatched Edd China Wheeler Dealers on offer this morning. Which is good.

    Meanwhile on the 7th of March 2019 NF had an appointment with the doctor at 09:20 the next morning but managed to fit in the last couple or 3 eps of TWW.

    Wheeler Dealers S9 E9 1960 Jaguar Mk2 3.8. MOT expired 2018. Bought £6k8. It smokes a lot. Total: £7k8, Sold: £9k. Cleaned the crankcase ventilation system & replaced a pipe to stop the smoking, changed the clutch master & slave cylinders, changed the seats and some of the treewood. Looked much better than the mk2 my dad had half a century or more ago.

    Walk (abbreviated) walked. It rained.

    Lunch: baked potato with cheese & baked beans, a red corner yog, bramble jelly & marmalade on slices of toast, 0.91*1.65 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Wheeler Dealers S7E8: 1989 Landrover 90 fitted with a replacement Rover V8 with the inevitable 390cfm Holley 4 barrel piece of tulipe. Changed the cam for a go faster one, repainted it, changed doors, changed seat squabs, fitted windows to the cabin, titivated various bits & pieces: bought £3k, Total: £5k677, Sold: £6k. Still taxed & tested though it's failed its MOT several times since 2010 & the tin worm is getting to work on the chassis.

    Didn't bother with the Caterham 7 ep. since they don't do anything very inneresting to it unless you find fitting a new lower floor pan particularly gripping. .

    Wheeler Dealers S?E?: Frogeye Sprite. Can't remember if I've seen this one before. Yup, watched it before. Bought £4k5. The MOT site denies any knowledge thereof. Drum to disc conversion on the front. New wheels. Paint. Total: £7k475, Sold: £8k6.

    Freecell score: 60%. .

    Tea: spag with moderately fiery bol, some peach slices, a yog, 0.91*1.82 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment: nothing that I can find before Maigret at 20:00: S4 E8 "The log of the cap fagnet". Which was rather good.

    Thing on 5Select about the 1952 London Smog: well wot a surprise the govermint concealed 8000 deaths caused by the smog.

    The last half hour of "What we did on our holiday (2014)" which is very funny.

    Morning all I’ve been instructed to either juice or throw out the remaining apples.
    Now looking at stills for making calvados.

    The DogTW had half a paracetamol before going to bed last night, and that seems to have made her feel a bit better.

    Tonight's major motion picture night was Morgan Freeman Night, opening with Kiss the Girls (1997) which is a very good thriller

    Next up was Lucy (2014) which I continue to insist is scientifically ridiculous. But, as I often mutter at the usual suspects in the IMDb goofs sections, it's a movie, not a documentary

    And finally, Going in Style (2017). Also a movie not a documentary, and great fun

    Goodnight all
