    Morning all

    A cloudy but patchy sunshine start to the day. It's 17 degrees and that's the high for the day. Rain forecast off and on all day. Barometer down to 1004 mBar.

    Had to go to C&WH this morning for my covid trial check up. I wasn't sure if I'd dodge the rain so wore a jacket and took an umbrella for the walk. It's very humid out there (app says 68%), making the jacket choice rather regrettable.

    However, the walk did mean I've reached my step target for the day already so I can sit on my behind guilt-free for the rest of it.

    Busy day so far, it's 13oC, we've had a walk, I've put some varnish on the bird box stand, and while I was doing that, I hear a tapping noise outside the workshop. Turns out that a pair of great tits are starting to build a nest in another nest box.
    I wonder if these are the same ones who have just fledged their young last week? I noticed they had been flitting around where their previous nest was, but that was in an old box that had an unstable stand and was held together with rigging straps. When they vacated it last week, I took the box away and got rid of the two dead chicks inside it.

    Rather grey, cloudy start, and apparently it'll continue along those lines with a chance of rain this evening. Currently 14°C with an expected high of 17°, and the barometers are noticeably down at 995/1003mB

    Read some more of the South Sea Bubble book today; not far to go now

    Whilst dining, viewing was yet another new episode of Police Interceptors

    And then another episode of The Repair Shop

    I see iPlayer has some shortened versions of that with a short shelf life, so I must make a point of watching them while they're available.

    Goodnight all

    I decided earlier that I really fancied a steak for tea. Luckily, I had one of those thick-cut ribeyes in the freezer, so tea has been that with the usual chips, fried onions and beans

    This evening ents has been lots of Brooklyn-99, from the beginning as I'd stopped watching it at some point and decided to restart it.

    Lunch: a toasted teacake absolutely slathered in butter

    Grey out but up to 21°C, which is higher than was originally forecast. Turns out it's now expected to reach 22°

    It was a very hot walk up to Paddington and back. Very glad I wore black.

    Afternoon denizens

    Fair few clouds about outside but also a fair few gaps between them and a lot of them aren't that thick yet, so it's sunny spells at the moment; though I believe it'll get cloudier from around now. A pleasant enough 19°C, and the barometers are down again at 1004/1012mB

    Blue sky from my vantage point. Currently 19 degrees with a high of 23 later. Rain expected overnight. Barometer down to 1016 mBar.

    Off to get my head scanned today. All usual jokes accepted! Quite looking forward to the walk up to Paddington as it'll take me through Kensington Gardens. Must remember sunglasses to protect my eyes coming from all the crud still coming off the plane trees.

    Morning.

    Grey

    Dry.

    Sunless.

    Cool at 18 deg in here.

    1012 mBar, 29.88 in Hg, 759.1 Torr, 14.6778 psi, (down from 1017 yesterday), 74% RH.

    Sunday.

    That fat ugly useless mother****er Bunter, the fat owl of the remove, is starring on this morning's Broadcasting House.

    I suppose I'd better get on with cooking whatever the feck that is that I defrosted from the unmarked pack from the freezer.

    It may be chicken.

    It was chicken breast in little chunks with bacon (Morrisons reduced), a red corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Even remembered to get the roasties out of the oven before eating the rest. .

    Entertainment: Just a minute: very funny.

    The food programme: starts with a blacksmith blacksmithing. .

    Walk (unabbreviated) walked in the grey gloom.

    Three more early purple orchids spotted thereon.

    Swans family spotted on the fishpond.

    Still no sign of the swan family on the first pond.

    Tea: baked potato with cheese & baked beans, bramble jelly & marmalade sandwiches, some fruit cocktail, a yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment: Breaking Mysteriouis: 3 eps of this bollox on Blaze. .

    In the absence of the Oak Island nutjobs, there's the Skinwalker Ranch nutjobs.

    Now if one digs holes on the Skinwalker Ranch then Very Bad Things Happen.

    So naturally enough you get a big feck off drilling machine & put a couple of cans down a pair of holes (small by Oak Island can standards but big enough).

    Apparently this does Odd Things to the local magnetic field and to the gamma ray count, whilst the local radio frequency stuff goes minorly apetulip crazy.

    Then again, you get a "back hoe" (not that sort of hoe) and dig a couple of trenches where cows have been killed & organs removed, whilst finally going to A Rock which the previous owners have stated "Don't Dig Here", move the fecker & dig a trench where it had been.

    Next week The Skinwalker turns up & kills them all.

    As nutjobbery goes, this is off the scale.

    For some reason I needed "Breathe", "On the run", and "Time", followed by "Comfortably Numb", all off the Pulse CD.

    "The people vs Agent Orange" on PBS: another stunning example of the environmental concerns of Septic Industry.

    As well as poisoning the Vietnamese they also poisoned the inhabitants of Oregon.

    Those Vietnamese childern horrifically affected by this filth.

    4 children murdered in Oregon in an arson attack. "Do you know where your children are" as asked by some of the chemical companies murderous scumbags.

    Here we go:

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...s-Vietnam.html

    As is only rite & proper, it's from the Fail.

    Well if the Agent Orange doesn't get you, then the non stick tulip will.

    Doomed etc.

    Good to see the courts are as corrupt as ever:

    Tonight's major motion picture premiere was Lovelace (2013). A good film about bad things happening to a good person

    And then I fancied something with lots of shiny special effects and such that was wholly divorced from reality and, as I haven't watched it in probably a few months, that meant a rewatch of Passengers (2016). It's still good

    Goodnight all
