The Challenger as per offered by the company I work for has either a no FA option or an ISR (inflight service rep) option for a slightly higher cost. These options differentiate from the Latitude or the Falcon.

Tis Friday and the afternoon draws on. Been raining a lot during the night and was still lashing it down at 6am as I got to work.

Nigel,
It is going to be a hard-fought game I think.
Have you got a good watering-hole to hang out in??

Another very pleasant start to the day.
+2C and a clear sky with not a touch of frost.

The mornings and nights are visibly starting to draw out now.

That 102 year old that Ricardian posted is quite incredible.
I hope he attributes he health and mental well being to a good
slug of whisky each day and a wild life in his youth.

Morning folks.

Looks like a reasonably fine day ahead for a bit of boating on me canal. I say 'boating' but it will be a day of tree ppruning and reed removal before the dickie birds start their nesting season.

BBC coverage of Ozzy Osbourne doing the final Black Sabbath gig tonight - I've no idea what he was saying on the BBC news this morning.

Now here's a new word for us ...

Click on an image of a succulent plant to embiggen it.
Discovered while I was trying to identify a succulent I have growing here. Good word hey?

Snowed here yesterday and again tonight. About 4 inches here at sea level. More higher up. Unusual for us.
Cars all over the city crumpled. One a 14 car collision.
Many drivers are running on normal tyres and wondering why the hell they are having trouble. I do hope they are getting tickets when they cause all this calamity and that the insurance coverer is taking a close look at their claims.

Morning.
+1C, patchy low cloud, vis 8000m and patchy fog about.

Breakfasted and waiting for my body to catch up with the fact
that I've got up. I'm sure I'll wake up properly some time today.

Here's something to put a smile on your face -

Nice to see Marmite is being exported to Europe; that'll solve the balance of payments problem!
