Children born with genetic defects because their mother's worked in the factories, cattle dying on farms contaminated with water run off from the factories. All the usual signs of danger that they ignored for many years until someone had the audacity to sue.

    They struggled to find clean blood samples because their products had gone global and 'C8' was present at some level or other due to people cooking with Teflon coated frying pans, environmental run off, food contamination, etc etc.
    After Ambulance I started watching this. Exactly the levels of concern for the wellbeing of the wider public that you'd expect from corporate USA

    Goodnight all

    Tea: battered chunky haddock with chips and beans

    Accompanied by a new episode of Ambulance - S7E6, iPlayer helpfully informs me. They must have had a week or two off or something, as I'm sure there wasn't one last week; can't remember if there was one the week before

    Walk briskly walked, green ring closed

    Not too warm out - officially 15°C, but there's a rather fresh breeze

    Pretty hectic morning as the gaffer had to give a demo of stuff, including the QuickSight things, to the DHSC at 1300 hours. All sorted out just in time, after which lunch was Scotch broth with multiseed bread

    It's brightened up a lot out there, though there's still a fairly stiff breeze blowing

    I poked my head out of the alley at the other end of the terrace, and it looks like the petrol station is free of queues at the moment; though it could be that the queue last night took everything, I suppose

    I had some chocolate chip brioche with my coffee for breakfast but was still peckish so a snack of bran flakes has been had. This now means that lunch will have to occur at some random time this afternoon.

    Proud owner of 2 sheds full of tools!
    I don't have the room for that. I have a little 'shed' on my patio that has been built into the space under the stairs. This is where my tool box used to live but rain gets through the stairs and caused it to rust. I had some larger tools in a plastic box but the nature of the lid on that meant water ingress was an issue and those didn't survive very well, sadly.

    The new tool box should ensure watertight storage for a good while.

    That's the solution then, ban all the most popular CUKers and only allow comments by drivelling sockies and others that nobody likes.
