there is a global shortage of olive oil with prices to surge by 50%.
The refineries in Italy will just increase their deodorisation and adulteration of the rancid Turkish and North African stuff they pass off as Extra Virgin.

Morning all, interesting 24 hours coming up. Forecast for gusts up to 70Kts and wave height up to 27 feet. A day for the Sunday papers if they get in and a roast shoulder of lamb methinks.

Morning folks.

More rain fell last night, but a lovely sunny day today, the rain having set off for a meeting with other rain and winds over Northern Europe. Humans would call this a summit meeting, but weather guessers apparently call it a hurricane.

Probably the last day of shorts wearing, as temperatures are set to dip us into winter next week.

Morning all, absolutely vile night with gales and massive lumps of water - ain't gonna call it rain because I don't think there were any spaces between the drops. Waves on the estuary are big enough to surf on, if you were of a suicidal turn of mind. Checked the boat on the mooring yesterday, slung the anchor and enough chain as well, just in case. Both hives tied down to their stands.

Dog thinks this is all for his amusement, sitting in the middle of the lawn, nose into wind, ears streaming back, grinning.......

Morning all,

Rain missed my little corner but a good stiff breeze for a while blew the haze away. Nice and clear today.

Gave up shorts last Wednesday and haven't bothered since, not got to shoes and socks yet.

Yesterday's viewing was the most promising I have ever done so we will see. We have holiday bookings to the end of February and they seem perfectly happy with that timescale. Maybe this time.

No chickens involved yet.

Re Olive Oil,

Perhaps now is the time to recruit locals to harvest mine. I have about 150 trees ready for a mountain goat to harvest ( It's an unmanagable slope for me)

This day in History buggah all seems to have happened except perhaps some senior military chaps in Germany in1909 were holding a party when one of their number dropped down dead whilst doing a par de der in a tutu thus causing a bit of a scandal,boys will be boys as they say in the Black Forrest.

PS,this will be a good site to keep toot on yon Tempest.

I see they have named this alleged storm "St. Jude", if it is named after the Mamasan maybe it is the most powerful for a decade.
I think i will take the bird feeders in this afternoon otherwise I will probably searching the field for them tomorrow.
Gorgeous blue filled sky and much yellowness at the moment,though..

In part I think because tomorrow is St Jude's day!

Though it, at the moment, is heading on towards where the mamasan lives after saying hello to the South Coast

Good day all. Sat in hotel room. They are letting me check out at 12. Nothing from BA so will drive up to SFO and probably find out then about possible delays/cancellation.
Reckon it's going to be a long trip!
