Morning all, cloudy and still windy.

Looks like some of the tags are working on the gannets, it tracks them in real time and displays their tracks on a chart. I've had a sneak preview before this facility goes live and it's quite interesting, already, you can see that one gannet one goes up as far as Hurn Bay on the South coast of the UK to feed and back again in one day. Technical people are just making some final adjustments before this facility goes live on the website.

Morning folks.

Meanwhile, on the lower reaches, the other side of the bay, the temperature is just reaching 21c. High of 29c in shade guessed at for today.

Very humid last night,so a few aches this morning. Aircon was deployed for a couple of hours.

Tax return for last tax year ending 31 December, has to be filed by 30 June. They also check them off against your form 720 overseas asset return now, if you were required to complete one, to see if they can catch you out on interest and income from abroad not declared or declaring income on your tax return from an overseas asset and not declaring the asset on your 720. A good gestoria these days is essential.

BTW: We had a brief rain shower early evening.

Yes, I know. 720 does not apply I am well under the limit. I think I will mention it however.


All this stems from a conversation in a bar, where else, and I thought I would get a second opinion so went to a lady that is a renowned 'spurt last week and am going again with five years of documents today.


She is confident she can sort it out in time.


I just want to be right.

The veg in the fields round here don't half pong when they get a bit of rain on them. A few downpours overnight and this morning have stimulated them into action.

Bakery

We have a population of 1,800 and 4 bakeries. The nearest being right under the office. Great smell first thing in the morning when I pitch up but a bit noisy at 04.30 if we are staying overnight.

OK nice weather now. Just sat with a cold beer by a clear blue sea and sky I have even left the pully in the car although 'er indoors is wearing hers.

Nothing like a field of cabbages left to rot in the field.

Woody42, thanks for the 3Qs link!

QM2's lines still have some semblance of Ocean Liner about them, the other two rather less so. Sad, but times change.

Agreed they still contain some of that ocean liner pedigree. Beautiful lines.

The weather here has been pretty good today and tomorrow looks even better.

Flapjacks and Whittingham biscuits fettled today. I might have a go at Lardy Cake next week.

Mrs HF went to her Book Club pals yesterday evening where they were guinea pigs for the hostesses husbands play on his new BBQ toy - a Big Green Egg which is a sort of ceramic charcoal oven. Whatever it is apparently it churns out fabulous lamb.
Thought of Checkers as the husband is also an airline captain who loves his gourmet food and cooking it.

I had some dry bread and water.

Lamb chops in a herb crust with steamed vegetables, pureed parsnip and baked potato, accompanied by a glass or two of red wine, followed by chocolate ice cream (freshly made) and coffee.

GG.

I've had a Big Green Egg for a couple of years, now, handsfree.

Did a smoked beef brisket a couple of days ago on it.

Tingling legs.

I spent a couple of hours on the riverbank this afternoon, dealing with invasive weeds.
Most of the time I was 'wading' waist-deep through nettles, wearing only thin flannel trousers to protect my legs.
I should point out that we have a particularly virile strain of nettles that were introduced by the Romans. These have somewhat larger leaves than most nettles, and have a stronger bite!
The result is that my legs are 'tingling' all over - next time I must wear cord trousers.

The Roman soldiers are said to have brought their own nettle to the British Isles to treat their tired, painful legs on long marches in the cold and wet climate by urtification, thus stimulating the circulation.
