    The car earlier was an Audi TT. Currently SORN, last MOT in the summer of 2020 IIRC, so probably another Covid victim

    Then a NEW! Police Interceptors whilst dining, though I didn't watch it all the way through.

    And tonight's major motion picture, in memory of Wolfgang Petersen, was Air Force One (1997). Cracking stuff! I didn't even realise the first few times I watched it that it was directed by the same guy as Das Boot, but they're quite similar in many ways: tense situations in a long tubular structure; one in the ocean, one in the air

    Early(ish) night now as tomorrow I head south for a family gathering, to wit, a barbecue

    Goodnight all

    Tea: thick-cut ribeye steak with chips, fried onions and beans

    Today was stressful in the way only attempting to deploy two major features on a Friday can be

    The second didn't go in the end because once the two codebases were put together by merging the pull request for the second one, it turned out it included modifications to something that the first one expected to work differently. I wasn't prepared to start digging into that mess at quarter to seven in the evening, and nobody else seemed keen, so we left it for Monday

    Was that Tom Cruise bloke hanging off the side?

    Saw the A400M flying down the valley some years ago. Took a while to figure out WTF it was.

    Might be hazy over North Devon, but based on how clear the Hercules was that just flew past, visibility is good in the nicer parts of the county.

    Oh, and a big thank you for "introducing" me to the 3pm quiz.

    Morning all

    The sky was quite clear earlier this morning with occasional fluff but it's since clouded over. Still bright though. A nice breeze is wafting about. Currently 20 degrees with a high of 23 expected. Barometer down a tiny bit to 1013 mBar.

    Busy morning, many meetings. Now contemplating whether to pop out to the shops.

    Morning.

    Damply dry.

    Blue sky in parts.

    Wanly sunny.

    Cool in here at 21.4 deg.

    1011 mBar, 29.855 in Hg, 758.3 Torr, 14.6633 psi, (up from 1008 last night), 69% RH.

    Friday.

    Odd dreams with waking at 03:34, 05:40, 06:33, 07:45.

    Oddest of the dreams was the final one which involved the QA dept of the Mag Tape division of 3M, something that hasn't existed for 30 years or more.

    There was even an Ampex VR2000 present, which was even more surreal since they've been obsolete for 40 years or more.

    Curiously it would appear to have involved a 16 hour shift, something I haven't worked in nearly 44 years.

    Shirts in the WM.

    Whilst back in December 4th 2018 NF made a trip to the hospital returning through a park that had previously been a railway scrapyard, teasing Gricer with a photo of DMUs piled up awaiting the torch, whereas Ye Newe Sloughe of Desponde was suffereing traumas due to the incompetence of the scamming bastards running the carpark facility, a matter of little concern to me, oddly enough.

    Shirts out of the WM & hanging on the line: they're not drying very well today.

    Cottons in the WM.

    Shirts in off the line & roughly iRoned, now airing upstairs.

    Cottons out of the WM & hanging on the line.

    Smalls in the WM.

    Smalls out of the WM and hanging on the line.

    Tea towels & pillow slip iRoned & airing over the banisters.

    Lunch: scrambled egg and poached tomato on Morrisons sunflower and pumpkin seed toast, marmalade on Morrisons sunflower and pumpkin seed toast, bramble jelly sandwich, yellow corner yog, another yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Last week's line dried towels approximate to 40 grit sandpaper.

    Entertainment: R4, R3 and Classic FM whilst iRoning.

    TWAO.

    Sounds like The Summer of Our Discount Tent is progressing well: glad I don't live in that London.

    Walk (unabbreviated) walked in the wan sunshine & breezy breeze.

    The pillow cases are off the line & iRoned, the towels are airing over the banissters.

    The smalls are airing in the front bedroom whilst the socks remain on the line because they're padded & very slow to dry.

    Tea: battered cod, stewed apple & custard, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment: Wheeler Dealers S11 E10 Audi TT Quattro with 1st & 2nd missing, bought for £1500.

    Car SOS: Ford Model A: you'd need two baskets for this case. .

    Alias S5 E1 "Prophet Five": bad news for Andre Michaux: don't start reading War & Peace.

    Alias S5 E2 "

    Morning denizens

    Sunny start out, which isn't what I ordered

    Currently 15°C and expected to reach 22°C, with a chance of some cloud returning this afternoon. The barometers are trivially down again, at 1005/1013mB

    I think there's been a bit of drizzle here, but not a lot.

    Upon assessing the contents of the recycling bin, I decided it wasn't worth trundling this week

    The car earlier was a Jaguar XJC. Currently taxed until next February. And then I spent some more time learning SwiftUI on the iPad, before an old Police Interceptors whilst dining

    Early night now, as I'm tired

    Goodnight all

    A bit of evening drizzle means I’ll probably be out with the weed & feed on some of the lawn tomorrow.

    But for now, TFBSZ.

    I still haven't got much further with it. It's odd, because I do like it. Anyway, the finale was this week, so maybe now I know I can watch the entire thing I'll find the motivation
