    Morning all

    Blue sky, dry, windy. Currently 2 degrees ('feels like' -1) with a high of 4 this afternoon. Cloud cover set to increase as the day progresses but unlikely to encounter any precipitation. Barometer up to 1007 mBar.

    No tables were dropped in the course of doing my work yesterday. I purposely use a read-only log in, just in case

    Today's Kantar diary facts are:
    Playwright and poet William Shakespeare marries Anne Hathaway 1582, and

    John Lennon's last major concert appearance in Madison Square Garden with Elton John 1974

    Morning all
    calm here with barely a wisp of a breeze. The pond has frozen over.

    today is going to be spent doing roof repairs and getting a couple of tonnes of horsesh… manure loaded onto a trailer for our rose bed.

    (N.B. SQL may not be valid because, for obvious reasons, I've never tried doing that )

    Tonight's major motion picture premiere was The Core (2003), which I believe is widely reviled as a Really Bad Film. But it's no worse than others of its kind, IMHO. Same crap as astronauts blowing up a comet and what have you. Which is not to say it's a good film, but it's a good enough example of its ilk and I quite enjoyed it, though I'm not sure that I'd bother to watch it again

    And then rewatches of some stuff that is really good. I should have just rewatched that and saved a couple of hours, but at least I can now offer an informed opinion

    Goodnight all

    And very nice it was

    Not at all nice out, though. Officially 2°C, but the wind is making it feel like -4°. If I'd realised how grotty it was, I'd have taken a scarf and gloves

    Oh no, just found receipt and it was 12 quid! Senile! (As usual)

    The wind seems to have died down a bit but there's still a risk of sleet this evening.

    Finally managed to transfer photos to PC from new mobile phone, had to get a new USB cable. 20 quid for a cable! Gordon Bennet!

    I realised the other day that I still had some sausage rolls in the freezer, so I had a couple of them for lunch

They're probably over in Rutland or somewhere. Temperature has only managed 3°C, and the barometers are slightly up at 994/1001mB

    They should expand their lexicon of storm names to include non-human categories, just to keep things interesting. Have a season of naming them after medical appliances first patented in the 1870s, then one with the Latin names of mutant fungi only found in post-industrial wastelands, and so on
    That's a sterling idea. Tweet it to the Met office!

    Mooch mooched. Rained a bit. Damp and grim outside but I'm glad I did make it outdoors today rather than festering inside all weekend.
