    The external temperature has started to decrease, so I've taken a chance on opening the curtains <- me gazing beadily on the outside world

    23.5 in here now.

    Since one can never have enough WWII it's Pacific War in Color again, last ep, so you know what it's about.

    And at 20:00 it's Nazi Megastructures or whatever, on 5.

    If I watch much more of this stuff I'll be annexing the Sudetenland.

    Ah, the brave Lidl soldier has just informed me that the lawn mower is out of petrol.

    Well we can fix that easily enough.

    Proper Sunday dinner tonight, built on a solid foundation of roast pork; and exceedingly nice it was

    Yes, why not.

    £220 for 3 uses seems fair to me.

    Why someone else, either me or his wife, has to go & get a gallon of petrol for him to put in the mower is, I must admit, rather beyond me.

    Is it beyond reason for a 36 year old man to walk down to Morrisons, buy a petrol can, and then fill it with petrol?

    It'd cost at least £10.

    The evening's 3rd feature, since I was bored after 20 minutes of Megastructures, was "Escape from Alcatraz (1979)" with that Clinton Eastwood chap. Dangerman was playing the Warden.

    Escape from Alcatraz (1979) - IMDb

    Stone me, was it really 40 years ago?

    It was tensely tense and rather good in a slow burn sort of way.

    On the subject of "Faster" ^^^ the dvd has an alternate ending which is quite amusing.

    I didn't notice the thing about Mr Johnson's hair care.

    22.8 now. Warmer upstairs.

    On the big screen this evening: Fail-Safe (1964), in which a bunch of US nuclear bombers are mistakenly sent to bomb the USSR and can't be recalled, much to the chagrin of people on both sides. Good stuff for its day, though calling the system "fail-safe" doesn't seem correct, given that the consequences of a fairly trivial equipment failure are clearly not at all safe

    I think I saw this on the telly many, many years ago.

    Still too warm, though it seems it'll get worse tomorrow

    Goodnight all

    I have the dvd and the remake somewhere in the stacks.

    It's not as funny as my film though.

    Morning.

    Dry.

    Hot.

    CBS.

    Bank Holiday.

    The weather's borked beyond belief.

    And, of course, not forgetting:

    Morning all Went to the Bluebird Cafe in Ferring for breakfast yesterday and a walk along the beach with The Dog (tw), followed by a wine tasting at Albury Vineyard. Then our Guineafowl arrived, much hilarity ensued.

    Today will be spent watching Guineafowl.
