That's good news from Warm Fronts as I'm due to have a little jolly down the Trent tomorrow.
Seems like Monday will be a hunkering down day for me then.

Mrs IB has been deposited at Clinico Hospital in Malaga for the day for her arrhythmia to be sorted. Pick her up any time after 19.00 tonight.

So, as I've been up since 06.00, about to put a brunch together for miself.
Bacon, sausage, white pudding, dried fred and a hegg.

ricardian: thanks for posting that superb Liszt video! Remarkable similarities to a flight deck, loads of checks before you get going.

Sil returned from her gathering not only bearing sausages but also two chocolate eclaires.

Went to the other sons of Morris today. No ham hocks, stopped doing them as they had to chuck too many out. At buggies asked the butcher for neck end chops, tells me manager (probably Southern) says there is no call for them nowadays, contrary to what the public tell the butcher it was the same as ham hocks. Think it shows the younger generation want convenience food and will pay top prices for that, but wonder why their shopping costs so much.

When I went out first thing this morning I could hear a burglar alarm going off in the distance,far enough away so as not to cause irritation indoors here,just noticed it is still going off near eight hours later,must be driving the people nearby batty,time they brought in a heavy fine for badly set up Burglar Alarms.
Speaking of sound, here's summat novel for the insomniated,8 hours of train sounds to lullus to sleep, sadly they appear to be colonial railway sounds.

I have just been presented with my new iPhone - apparently this is rather a shock to the system of the average Bberry user, so we'll see how it goes.

The IT guy said "it's fine, you've got 2 kids at home, just give it to them tonight and tell them you want a full explanation in the morning"

If I gave it to Octokitten2 (7) I would never get it back...

The Scotch Whisky industry relies on used bourbon casks to mature and flavour its products.

The new Boeing B777-9X will have folding wingtips to more easily navigate airports, a first for a commercial aircraft.
But does anyone see something wrong with this image or is it just demonstrating?
