    Tea: Heinz leek & potato soup, Morrisons wholemeal sunflower and spelt bread, bramble jelly sandwich on same, red corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment: "The spy with my face (1965)", feature length ep of The Man From Uncle.

    Amusing enough if you ignore the goofs.

    10 minutes of the Chateau thing with Dick Strawbridge and his lovely () wife.

    Now: The Oak Island nutjobs.

    They've washed a lot of the crap off the paved area in the swamp.

    Now they're in the war room reviewing the stuff they saw at the fort last week & comparing with the paved area.

    Next: Gary metal detecting in the swamp.

    Expert says the swamp isn't natural (as in glacial till) it's man made.

    Dr Spooner finds a stick to give a date.

    Gary's doing his thing with the spoil.

    I love the way they jump down into unsupported holes.

    Meanwhile, back at The Money Pit drill site they're stepping away from Shaft 2, towards where they think the Money Pit is.

    Back to the Dartmouth museum to have a look for the 90 foot stone of ancient legend.

    And digging up someone's lawn begins.

    Back with Gary they find an old pickaxe.

    Gary reckons it's a tunneling pickaxe.

    Next they find an old spade.

    At the museum they've dug a big feck off hole, exposed A Lot of Rocks and found: nothing.

    Back at the war room, reviewing the chunk of wood from the drilling: dates to 1626 to 1680.

    The 1680 date correlates with a date for The Eye of the Swamp.

    Next week: they find more wood and more iron.

    The slow cooker finally yielded up the chicken & barley soup and very nice it is too, accompanied by wholemeal bread

    Once again I had a fair bit of veg to use up so I also added more barley than usual. As a result, it's exceedingly thick and needs diluting, which is a Good Thing as it means more portions for the same amount of space in the freezer

    Soup divvied up, yielding six large portions. I could have made seven slightly smaller ones, but I decided to assume that I'll want a filling lunch when I eat them

    This evening's ents was a virtual jury thing over Zoom.

    It was actually quite good fun.

    Teatime (late) viewing was Powering Britain - Series 1: Nuclear which appears to be the final one in that series. Interesting stuff

    Both "free" with Prime at the moment, should you fancy some Nordic disaster
    And this evening's blockbuster was Skjelvet (2018), The Quake in English. That concludes my viewing of Norway's entire output of disaster movies to date, and they're really rather good. Basically they've taken all the standard ingredients of the usual Hollywood disaster movie and used them to make a film in a wholly Nordic style, and as a studio in Norway can now create CGI that's as good as anything a Hollywood studio could come up with, it works really well. In fact, they're better than some Hollywood ones that cost hundreds of millions of dollars more to make

    Goodnight all

    Dull and overcast but dry. Currently 5 degrees (allegedly foggy) with a forecast high of 10 later. Chance of rain this afternoon. Barometer steady at 2015 mBar. Average interior humidity 46%.

    First coffee being drunk.

    Morning all
    Murky out, can just about see half way down the garden.

    The Wife (tm) was up at 5.30am today for a meeting inside the M25 that started at 7.30, related to that virus thing some of you may have heard about. The last update on the meeting was sent out at 11.30pm yesterday which led to a lot of "f***ing" for an hour or so.
    ...oh, that doesn't sound quite right.

    Morning all

    Grey.

    Dark.

    Dank.

    Dire.

    Dreary.

    Damp.

    Drizzly.

    Sunless.

    14.7 deg in here.

    1016 mBar and 64% RH.

    Monday.

    The telex machine is shining particularly brightly this sunless morn.

    Very strange dreams again.

    Inneresting that the dreaming brain worked out that the lack of a season ticket for the railway journey to Swansea would require the purchase of a new ticket.

    Feck me that was odd.
    When the fun stops, STOP.

    Morning.

    I've twinged my back doing some gardening yesterday.

    That'll teach me for working outside.
