Just seen the live press conference with the U.S. Marines who helped disarm the nutter on the Thalys train the other day.

A credit to themselves and their country.

Nigel's thugs have just bludgeoned a 2-0 away win.

Nothing clever or skilful in that.

Confusion abounds here. Furniture stacked up all around us in the boudoir as wood floors are being refinished. I think I have become an honourary chav. Thank goodness I drink!

Bitter and twisted Utd supporter. Even Gary Neville said we played well. You must be a better expert. Wonder how you'll do at Goodison?

Must have been a seismic shift in the UK's geography today. Someone has commented on a thread about yesterday's tragic accident that the M3 runs past East Midlands Airport.

Wonder if the earth moved for Mr Handsfree?

The rain reached the Humber about 1830 Mr. D.
Beaufort My neighbour had three repairs to his flat roof before he realised he was throwing money down the drain and went for a full replacement. Tis OK now..
Elder Sister came for lunch and we managed to get her a Skype with her son who is struggling with the big C. they both felt good for the talk. We will try and make it a frequent occurrence.

Tiz not a very wide band of rain one reckons twill pass over Tyneside in about a hour, one has become quite skilled at calculating when the hole in the rain shown on that rain radar will pass over the Towers allowing one to scuttle out to the corner shop for tabs and such and remain dry.

The infamous Barbie in Dartford actually took place after I really stuck my neck out and told the sister-in-law the rain would not last for the four or five hours the weather guessers said it would.

I reckoned it would only last 2 hours. In the event it was 90 minutes. This was calculated the way Mr D. does it.

The M3 runs past East Midlands Airport ??????
It would be handy I suppose but I've never found out how to get on it
at this end.

Good morning to you all.
Back to the normal gloom and greyness with the wetness heading our way.

Mrs HF has announced that I am on a diet.
A sprinkling of dust for breakfast I suppose is on the cards then.

Have noticed the odd flies around for the last couple of weeks, mostly buzzing the laptop and environs.
After much deep thinking and little experimentation - did you know they are totally defenseless against one spritz of Windex? And if it coincides with the lappy screen, you get a cleaning as well. It always needs a cleaning.

If TV manufacturers were really on the ball they would have developed sensors that when detecting that the watcher has reclined on the sofa - tilt the screen to remain horizontal with the watcher's eyes.

beaufort - thanks for the recipe, looks great!

Well, those of you waiting with bated breath will pleased to know that my second attempt at the Pimms jelly worked out fine

Persisting down here - suitably gloomy for the first day back at school. After a lovely weekend, our friends are off camping near Annecy for three days. In the rain. Then they're coming back for another weekend of fun and frolics.

As a noted crumbly I can tell you a normal after dinner nap is quite refreshing but those involuntary ones are not,one awoke flustered fuzzy headed and confused, body clock thrown out of kilter.
