    Tea, as forecast, was teriyaki salmon (Morrisons, reduced) along with a fillet of rainbow trout (Morrisons, reduced).

    It was all very nice.

    Whilst it's much cooler outside now, in here it's still like a sauna.

    Ho hum.

    I'd open the windows if I could get anywhere near them.

    Which I can't.

    Tonight's tea has been southern-fried-style chicken thighs and drumsticks (actually baked), and fries

    These were M&S chicken bits and I don't think the coating has quite as much flavour as the Sainsbury's equivalent, or even as other coated chicken bits from M&S. But still very nice

    This evening's escape from the pollen outside was provided via S5E7 of "Person of Interest".

    Followed by "Vantage Point" which is a good deal more impressive a film than the dvd cover might suggest.

    Denis Quaid, Sigourney Weaver, Forest Whitaker, William Hurt and Matthew (how the feck did I get off that goddamn island 4 8 15 16 23 42) Fox.

    Told in a curious way but very effective despite that.

    My evening's entertainment, if that is what it was, started with The Pelican Brief (1993) which, being based on a John Grisham novel, was all a bit lawyerly. Good enough in its way, though.

    And then Passenger 57 (1992), starring Wesley Snipes. I actually watched the first twenty-odd minutes of this the other week, but that bit's rather slow and I got bored. Resuming, it turns out the rest of it isn't at all slow, but it's also the purest hokum, with a plot so full of holes it could profitably be slung off the back of an Icelandic trawler. Bonus points for the bit where they had an aerial shot of a helicopter whose registration number was reversed, revealing that they'd flipped the negative, presumably having forgotten to get a shot of it flying in the desired direction

    Goodnight all

    "Passenger 57" is an odd film.

    As you say, a plot full of holes.

    I think I have the Pelican thing somewhere in one of the multitudinous piles of dvds.

    In other other news, Mein Fuhrer I can breathe!

    A nice drop of drizzle and a semigale has blown the evil pollen away for an hour or two.

    Morning all

    Overcast and a stiff breeze here. may need to move some of the plants to give them a bit of protection from the wind.
    No rain worth talking about, but hopefully it will come.

    Hopefully I will win the premium bonds next month.

    Went to let the chickens out of their run and the rain started. They are out, a new acacia that I pot planted last weekend is now in shelter, the patio umbrella is out of it's stand and lying down, and the sail which keeps direct sunlight off the office in the mornings is down as well.

    Morning all.

    Manchester is kind of grey - maybe will rain maybe will not - think we are just a bit south of Hector.

    Nearly Friday
