Morning folks. Could see the sunrise this morning so I guess it's not cloudy. Sent Mrs 4ma outside and she reports back that it is quite mild.

Being visited by Theo today for continuation training in being a test pilot in a toy shop.(Him that is, not me)

I bet they were a fit lot living at the top of that street.

Good day to you all.
Shepherd's warning in force this morning.
Pretty to look at but who knows what it portends.

By the way it's FRIDAY yet again.

Finally managed to get through to a Virgin Media human after a nighmare of different button presses inane questions and such to be told by a nice chap in Bombay or somewhere that the email is a scam and to ignore same and that Virgin Media are on the job as we speak investigating it.

That street ws due for demolition but the council had to hold that up for a week until the Caine person returned back north to have the publicity photos taken for Get Carter, true that is.

Popped into the local hair cutting establishment to see if the comely wench who keeps the CP barnet under control had a spare slot later. She does, but I have a dilemma. I'm an obedient soul, and like to do what I'm told, however the lady in question is wearing a sweater that says 'Kiss Me'. Should I do as instructed? I suspect it would be a pleasurable experience, but the ensuing issues likely to unfold may detract from that moment, especially if Mrs CP hears about it! What's a man to do?

Christmas? Bah, Humbug

What do the Baby Jesus and I have in common?

Lo! I don't abhor the virgin's womb, either.

...........after a nighmare of different button presses inane questions and such........
Sometimes ........... rattling the zero key by-passes all the inane menus and with a large sigh the machine says ... OK, I'll connect you to someone who can help. An oxymoron I know, a moron usually answers, but at least they're human ( of sorts )

There is also a USA website called "get-a-human" or similar, which lists the keystrokes to use to get straight through to a human for many well known public companies. ( doesn't work with AT&T tho', as I recently discovered to my half-day cost. )

Morning.
The dull and wet is here. +13C and expected to go to 17C later.
Does the deity in charge of weather not know it's mid December.

As yesterday was the last Friday before Christmas I expect the towns and
cities were awash with revellers last night.
I wonder if Mrs jimtherev was doing her Street Pastor thing.

To bypass the voice recognition jobies, just mumble gobledy gook and the machine will say " Sorry, I am having trouble understanding you clearly. I will connect you to a service assistant"

P.S. sorry for the tardy reporting in, however one is in Siam....

Good day from CA. Tis still chilly and we had rain last night and still getting the odd shower. At least things might turn back to a shade of green instead of brown.

In other words Avi is sunning himself and winding down to his well deserved retirement.

Morning folks. A bright sunny and pleasant day out there. I wonder if the sky pixie responsible for meteororilodgikle stuff has been on the wacky-baccy.

East Midlands Today on Friday night featured a couple of street pastors getting ready for Friday night in Derby. I wonder if that was Mr & Mrs jimtherev
