    Default I can only apologise!

    Who would've thought it could happen to the same guy three years running. I have hold my hands up and apologise unreservedly for the sudden downturn in the weather.

    In 2007 and 2008 we had a week or so of sun, then I got the big oscillating fan out of the loft and, well, the rest is meteorological history; two of the wettest summers in recent years.

    I held off as long as I could this time, honest, but I was getting a sweaty crevice, so on Saturday I succumbed and liberated the beast from the loft. The clouds have been getting darker ever since, and the rain is beating down so hard it makes your head bleed (so, some sort of hat is in order (© Blackadder II)).

    Ah well, roll on next spring, eh?

    Once again, sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry

    Unhappy

    Our garden swing bench has been in bits in the garden since we moved in. It needed weatherprrofing before we could erect it.

    At the weekend, the Mrs put her foot down and so it got weatherproofed. It's a serious piece of furniture and takes a lot of painting. It took about four hours.

    We finished painting it Sunday evening.

    The instructions say "do not allow to get wet for 24 hours".

    From the look of your avatar, you don't venture out much anyway.

    Science isn't about why, it's about why not. You ask: why is so much of our science dangerous? I say: why not marry safe science if you love it so much. In fact, why not invent a special safety door that won't hit you in the butt on the way out, because you are fired. - Cave Johnson

    Nah - he's always out and about, they arrange a little minibus to pick him and his friends up. The seats have extra straps.

    FWIW, that's the most disturbing avatar I've seen in a long time.
