Morning folks.

Sunny and warm outside, a nice start to the day. Mug of tea on the brew and Mr Watkins bacon sizzling in the pan.

A day off from me canal today as we are going to visit senior daughter - Mrs 4ma mentioned something about a joint retailtherapy mission.

Snoop Cramp Faeries

Good Sir handsfree: I empathize with your episodes of night cramps! My semitendinosus and semimembranosus (hamstring) muscles would awaken me from a sound sleep as they bent my feet to my gluteus maximi. (After these extremely painful episodes, which would last for five minutes or more, my wife would laugh and remark that I was kicking myself in the ass...) I also had frequent tetany (cramping) of the superficial muscles of my anterior ribcage, especially when I made an extended reach, say, for a flagon of beer.

When I advised my physician about this problem, he concluded that the statin I was taking (Atorvastatin 20 mg. once a day) was at fault. He recommended CoenzymeQ10, 100 mg. once a day. This over-the-counter medication has alleviated 99% of those horrible cramps! I recommend this treatment even though my bride misses seeing me kicking myself in the ass! Plus, I can make that looong reach to grab a beer at the back of the 'fridge...

- Ed

Strange that. I experienced the same when taking Simvastatin and the old sawbones switched me to Atorvastatin and the cramps stopped.

Different strokes and whatnot.

Raining.

'Twas a football day.
Senior Sproglette's team won a tough game to win the Under 13s County FA Cup (girl's category). Nice award ceremony in which they also received the cup for winning the League.
Garden now knocked into some kind of order but lawn a mess thanks to girl dog. Is there a cure for this?

Assuming we are talking about brown burn-like marks on the grass, dog rocks in the water bowl worked a treat with our girls. Available from many good pet emporiums.

Dawn has dawned and by the looks of things rain has rained.
Forecast is good for the rest of the day, high of 17C predicted.

The M1 Armageddon doesn't seem to have materialised to the
extent it was expected. Well not from my prospective anyway,
the village was clear to navigate throughout the day as far as I'm
aware. Getting to East Midlands Airport from the west (A50) and
then through Castle Donington and entering onto the airport via
the western freight entrance should present minimal delays.

Mum was returned to the care home yesterday evening. She seemed
happy to be back.

Bacon (and maybe egg) banjo for breakfast.

Morning folks.

The rain has stopped. Yesterday's exped wasn't too bad as far as the wallet is concerned. Mrs 4ma is on jury service soon and had to buy "something appropriate" to wear. My suggestion of a black cap didn't go down too well.

Today is a 'clearout the shed/garage' day with loads of stuff for the council tip - should keep me out of trouble for a couple of hours.

Meanwhile....more tea is required.

I have just seen 3 Puffins on the webcam, at long last because I thought there weren't any this year.

Which web cam would that be? While searching for non-existent mackerel in Caernarfon Bay over the recent Bank Holiday, I was surprised to see no puffins. Plenty of guillemots and dolphins but no puffins or mackerel. Oh, plus a few whiting.

The Puffins are here, well now and then but there are lots of gulls and rabbits sometimes.

Webcams - LIVE: Teaching Through Nature

Main webcam is best during the U.K. morning as the close up one gets the sun straight into its lens
making it awkward to see anything.

I have seen about a few puffins over the past couple of weeks, not more than four at a time though when in previous years one would have sometimes seen 20 or 30.
In regard to the rabbits, do they have any predators on the island? I can't think of any which leads one to ask the question why is the habitat not overrun with rabbits?
