    While watching Monday's University Challenge, I fixed an issue that has bugged me for a long time: when you select 'view in Browser' on an email in Outlook, it opens in IE11. A few registry entries, a change of default app, and a setting tweak in Edge later they now open in Edge. I'm not a fan of that browser but it's good enough for when I want a clean email to print off.

    Tea: breaded chunky haddock with chips and beans

    I'm also on Inside the Factory but an earlier episode, about making Doc Martens.

    And there was a shortened The Repair Shop earlier while my MBA was installing software updates

    Dinner was baked potato with cheese and beans.

    Watching Inside the Factory, all about tortilla chips.

    The recycling has been sorted out and taken down, which filled the recycling bin to capacity; so that has been trundled forth in all its pomp

    A few weeks ago it was dark by this time. The sun hasn't even set yet. Takes me by surprise every year

    I was probably dozing at the time, though I do remember a curious thump being emitted by the wireless.
    I think the wording might have been "some customers", implying it wasn't the entire area, so looks like you dodged that bullet

    Lunch: bacon cob

    And then: walk briskly walked, green ring closed

    A bit early today, it seems - despite tomorrow being bin day, most houses I passed hadn't yet put their recycling bags out for my inspection

    We didn't, but the Sonos in our bedroom did an update around 3.30am, which involved it flashing red, green and white for a few mins.

    Morning denizens

    There' been some rain overnight, bringing an end to the precipitation-free spell. But now the cloud is clearing up and some wan sunshine is starting to get through, with more forecast for later. Mild too: 10°C at the moment, though that'll head down to 8° this afternoon. Barometers on the way down at 1018/1025mB

    Morning.

    Dark.

    Dank.

    Dreary.

    Sunless.

    Grey.

    Wet.

    Drizzly.

    Warmer at 13.4 deg in here.

    1027 mBar, 30.33 in Hg, 770.3 Torr, 14.89 psi, 63% RH.

    Thursday apparently.

    The recycling & waste disposal engineers had done their thing whilst I was still asleep, wasn't woken up by the glass bin being emptied.

    Walk (unabbreviated) walked in the initial grey gloom, then drizzle, then the sun came out from patches of blue sky.

    Lunch: lentil & ham soup with Morrisons wholemeal sunflower and spelt bread, bramble jelly sandwich, nonpippy red corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment: You & Yours waffling on about the MC insurance debacle.

    Followed by "The Coming Storm" parts V, VI, and VII. (That speed up playback thing is really useful).

    I'm not quite sure what that all proved, other than the infinite idiocy of humankind but there you go, what with WWIII about to start I don't suppose it matters overmuch.

    Off out now to buy more baked beans.

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

    Bought some genoa cake (I wanted an iced slice of fruit cake but haven't seen one since a fortnight before xmas) which seems to have been devoured rather rapidly, though there's still half of it left.

    Lovely sunny afternoon, made the trip to Tesco quite pleasant it being rather warmer than of late.

    Watched the poor little sods on the skool playing fields enduring the rugby, something I cordially loathed & stayed as far away from the ball as possible back in the long gone days of more than half a century ago.

    Tea: chilli con carne with rice, some peach slices, a yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea. Oh, and some genoa cake.

    Entertainment: Discovering Ernest Borgnine.

    Quantum Leap S4 E10 "Unchained": the chain gang one. Septic "justice" at its finest.

    NCIS LA S11 E19 "Fortune favours (or favors) the brave". Better than the recent average.

    Trucking Hell S5 E9. No Rory.

    I see that BBC3 has just reappeared on Freesat. I thought the beeb were strapped for cash?

    Judging by the number of BBC1 channels they've got bundles of it.

    Couldn't get out of bed this morning for a walk - felt like I'd been steamrollered overnight.
    So, The DogTW has just had a run around the garden.

    Morning all

    It's overcast and dull again! Currently 9 degrees ('feels like' 7) with a high of 11 expected. The sun might make an appearance this afternoon. Barometer has finally moved, down to 1027 mBar.

    Tired this morning, didn't want to get up. Not looking forward to an 8am start on Saturday
