    boiled beef (croc pot) and carrots very nice.

    Watching Apparitions an everyday story of possessed folk. How martin Shaw kept a straight face is the real revelation!

    Cheers, Nick.

    Must be sommat to do with the way I edit stuff.

    I noticed the Frog Farm thing was on but resisted the urge to watch yet another load of tosh.

    If they had the Ark of the Covenant on a chain, then it'd be different. .

    After the opals, more from the frog ranch people. It appears they're trying to retrieve a large box that's in a flooded cave. I suppose it helps pass the time; there isn't a lot else to do in Utah

    Anyway, they got a chain attached to it, and next week they're going to use underwater pneumatic drills to break up boulders so they can drag it along the cave to the entrance

    Tired now

    Goodnight all

    Morning.

    Damply dry.

    Greyish while wanly sunny.

    Much less windy.

    Cool in here at 19.4 deg.

    1011 mBar, in Hg, Torr, psi, (up from 1003 yesterday), 73% RH.

    Monday.

    Very odd dream before waking.

    Telex machine gleaming brightly.

    One has just been StreetViewed(tm).

    Shopping trip to Morrisons done, dusted, washed, dried, sanitised & put away.

    One noted that the deal on Heinz(tm) soup has disappeared. Gone from 4 for £3 to £1.35 a can. .

    Entertainment: The bottom line (calm down xogg) on R4 all about petrol forecourts and suchlike. Who knew it was so complicated?

    Lunch: scrambled egg and poached tomato on Morrisons sunflower and pumpkin seed toasted crust, bramble jelly & marmalade sandwiches, a red unpippy corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment: Y&Y waffling on about 2nd homes until the Welsh Government woman came on with one of those dr o pping ou t telephone lines (presumably the usual irritating interweb one) came on, whereupon it went .

    Curiously, it would appear that the plant, previously identified as an Early Purple Orchid, isn't, it being more likely to be a Southern Marsh Orchid, which makes more sense considering the garden would have been part of a marsh 230 years ago, before the canal was buiilt.

    Shopping trip to Tesco done, dusted, washed, dried, sanitised, & put away, not out of necessity but rather to see how the price of Heinz soups compared: 95p rather than £1.35.

    Entertainment: Discovering Robert Mitchum.

    Farscape S3 E20 "Into the lion's den part one: lambs to the slaughter".

    Tea: more of the cumberland sausage with carrots & onions, some stewed gooseberries and custard, a yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Wheeler Dealers S15 E26 Landcruiser FJ60. Sort sort of Land Rovery type thing apparently.
    It's doing that thing where half the post disappears again.

    Ikea furniture has gone up in price.

    So it will be to the BHF or similar charity furniture shop she will go to.

    Regardless her target market don't want a tulipty furnished place. They want a luxury kitchen and bathroom and a place where they can easily get their own furniture into.

    Two viewings of my flat over lunchtime today. I don't think either was enthused. On listening in, it would seem the landlady is now willing to fully furnish the place in order to get that extra £200+ a week she thinks its worth

    Back from the dentist, having been prescribed amoxicillin. The pharmacy is half way between the temporary dentist and home, so I was able to stop off to pick it up, as well as re-stocking with paracetamol. But it turned out the dentist had forgotten to put the date on the prescription

    So I had to go back again, then back to the pharmacy with it correctly filled in

    All of which at least means: green ring closed
