Quiet here today Tony. Where is everyone? Anyway good luck with whatever they implant in you, do check to see if it comes with a guarantee. Been watching lightning maps for the past few weeks, it seems Belgium, northern France, The Netherlands and western Germany have been copping it with storms recently and looking out the window now we have some incoming here. I've mentioned before that the local blackbirds get very tuneful when rain is due in anticipation of the worms coming up for air.

Beautiful day up here at 59N. Warmest day of the year so far and bright sun in an almost cloudless sky. Looking good for the next few days

Worrying day today as the removal man who gives quotes is arriving. We are just really
really hoping that his company can move us next week - day unimportant as long as it's
before July 1st.

Been on me canal today pumping out one of the boats that got a bit full after a downpour.

Carried out my civic duty before I went to me canal. Three folks in front of me in the queue, got the voting paper, done the biz and left by which time the queue of folks waiting to vote was out the door. Never like that at a General Election..

Panic over as the removal man has been and said that they can do it next
Wednesday. This calls for an alcoholic beverage I feel.

Good morning all.
It seems that we are living in interesting times.
The British people have spoken and they have said OUT.
Many things will change as result but not the fact that it is
FRIDAY

Good morning all, and - unfortunately - good night Britain...

Well, at least our holidaying in the UK next month will be as cheap as never before...

Very interesting vote result from the UK. I really thought it would end up going the other way. I don't have any particular opinion on the subject but as people have said, there will be interesting times ahead.

I am currently north of the border, and the locals are bemused (!) and shaping up for an Independence referendum once more.

Whether this will result in 'out of the frying pan into the fire' remains to be seen.

It all seems like a dreadful mess.

Whatever change it will be exceedingly slow. First a letter has to be written saying we are leaving, no time limit on that, then it can take at least two years for everything to be untangled. Border control may well be the first area where changes are seen.


EDIT: Having just seen the morning news down here in Oz, it looks as though the rest of the EU want the UK out sooner rather than later!
Also the SNP saying another referendum is highly likey to decide if they stay in the UK! Wonder who will pay for that then?

Afternoon, all,
You could have made your day even more exciting, Hands, if you had known I was in 313 at the Royal while you were wandering around giving away bits of yourself!
Back home now after 10 days of 3-squares courtesy of NHS. Not particularly enlightened after this test and that, but relieved to have been told that I don't need to be split from breastbone to pubic bone... this time.


Feel fitter than I've done for a long time, but they ain't done nuffin, except, as I say, feed me...

I wish I'd know you were there Jim, I'd definitely had popped
down to see you.
With a cannula in your hand you seem to get a free pass to wander where you will.

The friend who I was visiting has just come out of theatre and is
in recovery. According to the surgeon it went all went very well.

Seems that a candle and a prayer from even a humble atheist does no harm

So, these bikers shattering the peace - did they have a plan to collect the ducks after throwing them into the environment?

Well if it's anything like the Duck Race they used to have around here, they put a net across the finish line and collect them
up for re-use next year.
