    It's been bumping along the bottom for years round here

    In fact, according to the local copper when asked at one of the Neighbourhood Watch meetings a while ago, it's only in very specific areas that they get a lot of crime reported. The block I'm on is generally fine, but up the side streets on the other side of the road is worse, and it generally gets worse further up towards town except for a couple of streets which, probably not coincidentally, have slightly larger (but still terraced) houses and a greater number of owner-occupiers. There's even one street up towards the town end where the crime all happens in the half of it nearest the main road; nothing seems to happen on the further half

    I had a rest from the telly tonight, instead starting to read Night of Camp David by Fletcher Knebel, emblazoned in large letters on the cover with the words "What if the President of the USA went stark staring mad?" A bestseller in 1965, it was for some reason republished a couple of years ago

    In fact I started to read it some months ago but wasn't in the mood; I started again from the beginning, and it seems OK.

    And once I'd finished the first chapter, I also browsed a few more days of Sam Pepys' diary for 1664.

    Goodnight all

    Morning all

    Hazy out, I'd say. High level cloud with bits of blue poking through. 11 degrees at the moment but no wind, so it'd probably be pleasantly fresh if I went outside. Forecast high of 21 later, low chance of precipitation and looks like it'll get sunnier.

    First coffee being drunk.

    Saw that a heatwave is expected next week in Southern England. Perfect timing to be in Glasgow

    Bins have been collected.

    The police.uk site, of which I'm sure you're aware, can be quite informative about crime incidents.
