Bluey: 4ma is referring to an additional amount of money allocated to police still searching for Madeleine McCann:

Kelvin,

Thank you providing the first part of the answer.

Mme Bluey, the second part is Corrie McKeague, a serving member of the RAF Regiment, who vanished during a night out in Bury St Edmunds in September 2016. A major part of the search involved a landfill site where, it was thought, Corrie's body may have ended up.

It now seems to transpire that the information directing the location of the searches was based on 'non information' - not that the missing person is likely to have been dumped in landfill, but that the records were falsified (through negligence rather than criminal intent).

Mission accomplished - popped out and obtained one (a lemon tree complete with 2 lemons - and plenty of buds) after work - I think I might even have scored some much needed brownie points in the process

Might be gin and tonic time !!

Having a cup of lemon tea here. Thought it a bit too early for gin and tonic.
Looks like we are in for a wet day again.

Today marks the birth in 1819 of Sir Joseph William Bazalgette, English civil
engineer. As chief engineer of London's Metropolitan Board of Works he
created a sewer network for central London which was instrumental in
relieving the city from cholera epidemics, whilst also beginning the cleansing
of the River Thames.

Memo to self - don't forget Mrs 4ma's Easter egg.

It wouldn't be treated as a yolk if you did, 4ma ... but if you get her a nice one everything will be all white.

Coat ... door ...

Don't forget to go out and pee on it every night before you go to bed S.P.M. No bull.

Morning folks.

Slight touch of frost on the roof tops otherwise sunny and clear blue skies. One has a warming mug of tea to hand so all is well.

Off to Manchester Airport at silly o'clock tomorrow morning to deliver senior daughter for her flight to foreign parts. Never been to that airport, what's it like for driving to and parking?

Parking - average in short stay.
Journey - from you prob A50 & M6 quickest, but the Cat & Fiddle road, A537 is beautiful, if it's clear. We always try to go that way...
But see Tall Bird's post of a couple of days ago, this road can get v. misty & thus slow. And talking of TB & slow, she also mentions that airport approach is clagged up with road works, so that's another possible delay.

Thanks Jim.

Looks like the A52/A50/M6 route it is.
