I've not checked the full list yet but I suspect I too have been overlooked
once more.

It was blue sky when I got up but there is cloud appearing now.
The forecast is good though which is welcome as the River Trent has come
up quite a bit overnight although it is still within the typical levels.

I got caught out in a down burst yesterday and I can't remember the last time I got so wet so quickly. It was terrible - I had to retire to the Snug of the Dolphin and dry out in front of their open fire. Of course it was beholden
upon me to make a small purchase for the privilege. Two small purchases in fact.

When you look at some of those "honoured", would you really want to be measured alongside them?

Bah humbug again

Well that's it, passed the half way point in the four most miserable months in the calendar.

Hang on, the buggers have stuck an extra day onto February, will have to wait until midday to mark the occasion

Morning folks. Bright skies and a chilly wind.

Only a few folks honoured who actually deserve recognition. As for those who pick up a gong just for doing their (no doubt, well paid) job, .

Slowly getting the resigned one's work done as well as my own.
Why laser? They are paying you his salary too? They asked you to do it free of charge and you agreed? Mate, you are nucking futts as they say. These people are well and truly having a lend of you. It is their job to find a replacement and you should not be touching that work with a bloody barge pole. Stop being so helpful to them and look what you're doing to yourself man.

Evening all,

last day of the year and probably the first rainy/snowy of this winter, with temps barely above zero C.

Couldn't be bothered less, will soon start preparing a nice four course dinner. A good British IPA in my glass and then off to the kitchen.

What lovely colouring your moggy had tinpis.
So sad to see them depart.

A cold frosty start to 2016.
A Happy New Year to you all and may it bring peace and contentment.

Nice looking cat tinpis, sorry to hear of his departure, that is the main problem with pets, they leave much too early. We have a couple of Burmese and I suppose we are counting down now.

Of all the cats, Siamese are most in their own worlds.
Of the four worst months, these are the best down under, brushfires, melanomos, sunburn and struggling to breathe in the cloying heat notwithstanding. Ahh, Christmas on Whale Beach with a bucket of KFC and a few bottles of champers, Watching fireworks on Sydney Harbour Bridge from Watson's Bay beach.


Might have snowed here last night or more properly, thick frost.

Sunburn ? I understand the word burn..... but this sun thing of which
you speak.

Good morning all.
The sky is just starting to lighten to reveal an overcast covering, trees
merrily blowing in the wind and the promise of rain.

I've just checked and it really is Saturday. I can't say that I thought it
was Sunday; I just didn't have a clue what day of the week it is.

Today is...........who cares when you're retired.

Mrs 4ma is desirous of visiting new grandson today and one is the delegated driver to convey SWMBO to the meeting. I have been standing by since before sunrise whilst Mrs 4ma has been "prepping" herself for the meeting. I reckon I've got time for a full-fried and large mug of tea before I hear the words "I'm ready".
