    Another 2 hours of "gardening" done.



    I hope this lawn turns out well.

    A mystery solved: the Thing That Went Tink last night turned out to be the measuring jug which has fractured in a most curious way.

    Luckily I have another one.

    Tea this evening was M&S breaded haddock.

    It was nice.

    Followed by some ground rice (hence the jug) which was nice too.

    All rounded off with 1.05 pints of Good Glengettie Tea.

    Unseasonably warm and sunny day in Scotlandshire today. Not a cloud in the sky and circa 20 degrees!

    Did nothing of note to make the most of the weather, other than a couple of loads of washing.

    Just spent several hours trying to get the TomTom JavaScript API to do something. Eventually, a lawyerly reading of such documentation as there is appertaining to said something led me to the conclusion that it doesn't actually support doing it. (It only supports WMS, not TMS, if you want to investigate the details.) So I'm not going to get that working, but it helped me pass an afternoon, I suppose

    The Scotch broth is still simmering away; should be ready in another couple of hours or so. But I've also got to see about doing something with these lamb shanks, which will be the actual dinner.

    The soup has been turned off, and is being left to cool naturally for an hour or two. In the meantime, the lamb shanks and various sacrificial veg, along with a load of red wine and a bunch of redcurrants, are now in the InstantPot™ coming up to pressure. I'm about thirty minutes behind the plan due to forgetting what time I was supposed to start, but I'm sure it'll all turn out OK

    Well, the lamb shank in red wine and redcurrant sauce turned out inordinately nice, accompanied by some homemade potato wedges out of the freezer and peas

    The evening's televisual entertainment, such as it was, was confined to "Stargate (1994)" with that Kurt Russel chap.

    Stargate (1994) - IMDb

    I found it dragged a bit until the shooting started.

    WTF was the Stargate for if there's a ship that does the same thing?

    Was it based on Williams's followup game to Defender? Stargate (video game) - Wikipedia

    Tonight's major motion rewatch was The Hunger Games (2012). I still think it's much better than the young people who were, one presumes, the target audience have any right to expect; we never had these lavish production values when I was their age

    And then S2E1 and E2 of Breaking Bad, as it's important to keep the momentum up.

    Goodnight all

    Dunno, might be, I suppose.

    Morning all if all there be

    Dry.

    Sunny.

    The CBS visible through the gap in the living room curtains looks rather whiter than might be expected.

    Maybe there's high cloud or sommat.

    Slightly warmer at 18.6 deg.

    The only series I've ever watched through again is "The Sarah Connor Chronicles".

    The rewatch of "Breaking Bad" got stymied by something or other back in the day, probably parent related.

    I rewatched the final ep again earlier this year.

    <hiatus>

    In with the hoi polloi.

    Forgot to look at the funny pictures which doesn't work in here for some net nanny reason.

    Still sunny.

    And remarkably warm.
