    Grey/white sky.

    Gloomy.

    Not currently precipitating as far as I can tell from here.

    Cold. 14.7 deg in here.

    1019 mBar and 63% RH.

    <hiatus>

    Walk walked.

    Nice enough.

    Lunch: scrambled egg and poached tomato on Morrisons sunflower and pumpkin seed toast (crust, very thick), bramble jelly sandwich on Morrisons wholemeal sunflower and spelt bread, yellow corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    <hiatus>

    More potching done on the tin shed during which a 3mm HS drill came to grief.

    Oh, the expense.

    And a can of PU foam got foamed to variously stick stuff together & fill assorted gaps that needed filling.

    I think a fillet of concrete duly applied tomorrow should see that bit done & dusted.

    <hiatus>

    Tea: Liver and bacon with onion gravy, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea, and the last mango (Morrisons, reduced).

    Very nice.

    <hiatus due to power cut>

    Oddly whilst cooking tea I thought to myself how inconvenient a power cut would be.

    Just as I was starting to wash the dishes, waiting for the kettle to boil, and typing this tulipe on here, out went the lights.

    Entertainment:

    Tudur Owen's TV flashback, being a collection of ancient clips from BBC Wales.

    Probably followed by another tulipe Man from Uncle "film".

    Why ever did I think it was "good".

    We must have been starved of good stuff.

    <hiatus>

    Tudur was amusing enough.

    The 2nd power cut, not so much.

    "The Helicopter Spies (1968)" was slightly more amusing than yesterday's offering.

    Dr Pimplepopper on Really.

    Abandoned Engineering on Yesterday.

    Reith Lectures started this morning.

    When I worked at the BoE, he came around to visit each floor and his opening statement was "Please call me Mark".

    Very well presented so far, starting with Economics 101.
    I was an IPSE Consultative Council Member, until the BoD abolished it. I am not an IPSE Member, since they have no longer have any relevance to me, as an IT Contractor. Read my lips...I recommend QDOS for ALL your Insurance requirements (Contact me for a referral code).

    BBC Radio 4 - The Reith Lectures, 2020: Mark Carney - How We Get What We Value, From Moral to Market Sentiments

    Very well presented so far, starting with Economics 101.

    Morning denizens

    Grey gloomy day out

    Only up to 6°C so far. But the rain expected this afternoon has been pushed back to early tomorrow, so there's that I suppose

    I wonder about that. In the initial lockdown, the road outside was virtually deserted; lately, it's been much as it always was. Whatever people are doing, they don't seem very locked down

    Time to light the fire.
    I'm perfect, in a very specific and limited way.

    This reminds me to fix my fast parsing of UTF8 - seems to fail in one odd case
