I see Trump... sorry, Johnson, is going to write to me and send me a food parcel. Do they warn you first? I ask because I would tell them, I don't need a parcel thank you.

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Yet again, I underestimated the time needed to get essential tasks done. I have spent an hour making another wing and veggie roast, this one will be the best ever! Also some carrots and parsnips which will end up being mashed. Adjust the clocks, walk Jack and make breakfast. Then have a listen to Br...

Re: TODAY'S PENNINE WEATHER

Overcast and colder yesterday. At 20:00 it was calm, cold and a crystal clear sky with a crescent moon and Venus. It was still clear first thing this morning and I have just looked outside and it hasn't changed and is bitter cold! The glass is up again at 1038mb. The forecast is for another overcast...

Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

Why should I when it is perfectly good? If things were as bad as you suggest I would be having food poisoning regularly. The fact is I don't so who is right? Yesterday I had a veggie lattice pie and two custards (donated by Kath) for breakfast and for tea the last of the wings and veggies with batte...

Re: CLIMATE CHANGE AND GLOBAL WARMING

I've been looking at the satellite data Tiz and it's remarkable how pollution has fallen already. Mind you I think that anyone who takes notice when they are outside doesn't need a satellite to inform them. The air is always good in Barlick but it's been even better this last coupler of weeks.

Yup. We used to have mass 'short arm' inspections. Long lines of lads in shirt tails and a medic going down the line inspecting tackle. He used a pencil to move the danglies about. I often wondered what they did with that pencil afterwards. I have this image in my head of some medical orderly sat at...
