    Tea: chicken madras with rice and naan. Very tasty, and also fairly easy to eat with the ongoing toothache

    I hope this amoxicillin kicks in soon

    The car programme is doing a clip show. Could anything be more pointless? "Oh, he's taking off that air filter! What a brilliant moment that was, it's so great to see that being removed again!"

    Keys collected successfully and many photos taken of various bits of the house to compare against the check-in report when it lands.

    Just a bit of toast for late breakfast/early lunch, as I don't have much time - too many meetings almost back-to-back today

    It's turned very dull and overcast all of a sudden but apparently still no rain expected.

    Tuesday.

    Some curious anachronistic dream this morning, something to do with 12th C banks and such like. Most odd.

    Walk (abbreviated, alternate horsefly free route) walked. Met the birdy man, first time for a while.

    Lunch: baked potato with cheese & baked beans, bramble jelly & marmalade sandwiches, red corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment: Y&Y twittering on about University degree courses & the value thereof.

    I wish I hadn't wasted 2 years in luffbra. Complete & utter waste of time & money.

    In other news: it's raining now.

    Freecell score: 100%, running average 85%.

    Minor potching in garage in a desperate attempt to fit the quart into the pint pot unsuccessfully.

    There's a remarkable number of old PCs in there.

    Entertainment: Discovering Fred Astaire.

    Farscape S3 E21 "Into the lion's den Part Deux: wolf in sheep's clothing". The blow it all to tulip one.

    Wheeler Dealers: some sort of clip show even less inneresting than usual. Far too much of Motor Mouth. Entire programme on mute.

    FBI S1 E19 "Conflict of interest". The Nigerian drug gang one.

    Five minutes of something or other about bipedalism and benobo chimps in the DRC before it changed to:

    The Bad Skin Clinic. Woman with acne. Swansea chap with a big lump on his head: lipoma, there's tidy then mooosh. There was a brief shot of the river around Ye Newe Sloughe of Desponde.

    Morning denizens

    Supposed to be a sunny start out but there's some fairly large chunks of white fluffiness getting in the way from time to time. Currently 13°C and heading for 21°, and the barometers continue inching upwards at 1009/1017mB

    Morning all
    Back at my desk and catching up on emails on a cloudy day.
    A week with my dad and then some serious gardening yesterday means I'm glad to be staring at a computer for a few days.

    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!

    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
