Good afternoon everyone  

Windy, cold but dry for now 

 

Shopping done, rent paid, so me sorted again 

Sweet, I hope you and Miss Bramble are okay. Good to see you are busy 

El, we like to stretch our posts on occasions  

 

Have a super day everyone 

If by any chance you can see the Sun at present (DO NOT LOOK AT IT) but Mercury is passing across the face of it. Doesn't often happen, the next time isn't until 2032. The transit ends at about 18.00.

The transit can only happen when Mercury, the Sun and the Earth are in a straight line.

 

Trivial point re Mercury. Because of the speed it rotates as it's going round the Sun, each Mercurian day lasts two Mercurian years

Hi Moonie you’ve been productive! I feel like I haven’t seen you in ages, it’s good to see you  

 

it’s been crazy here, lots of redecoration and projects going on, friends in need and all my usual busy life stuff  

Hi Sweet 

Well, semi-productive anyway 

It does seem like quite a while Sweet. Nice to see you too 

Sounds just like you

that was really fascinating EL and  didn't realise it was happening

Good morning everyone

 

Some sunshine here, rain/showers possible later.

 

Squiggle, last week one day I discovered that my garden wheelie had moved a couple of feet - the wind must have been blowing hard enough for that to happen.

 

I hope everyone has a good day

The composer Guy Farley has in the last year written "The Bader Suite" which is used to accompany the air displays of "Bader's Bus Company" which is the first diabled air display team. Obviously inspired by Douglas Bader ("Reach for the Sky"),

Here's the last of four pieces from that suite - called "The Return Home".

Moonie, it's become very cloudy, windy and bits of rain here.

 

Just been to the local post office to return a box of files to a client - should get there tomorrow. When he sent me the box he'd used Royal Mail special delivery £26.60. I used ParcelForce express 24 which would have cost £21.12 but I got a discount so paid a net £17.95. 2 lever arch files both full with paper so heavy. He lives 100 miles away so travelling to deliver the files would be a lot more expensive and time consuming.

I have emailed that client so that he knows he should be able to send files to me for less cost than he has paid. I assume that his local Post Office covers ParcelForce as well as Royal Mail.

Good morning everyone

 

Dry with a bit of sunshine here. Forecast for tonight and throughout tomorrow is atrocious with one site showing 2 inches of rain here

 

I hope Yogi is having a good time with the tiddlers

 

I hope eevryone has a good day

A beautiful start to the day here. Sunshine, light breeze and dry 

I’m sure she is El 

Tomorrow here, 50% to 90% rain all day 

I may shop later 

Moonie, the forecast here is like yours other than it's raining from 7 pm tonight through to midnight tomorrow so 29 hours. Amount of rain varies from site to site but it could be the wettest day in the last few years, just not as bad as the July 2007 flood event. I won't be going out tomorrow.

It doesn’t bode well for the the people of South Yorkshire and the East Midlands, does it El? 

Shopping done at least until Saturday

The rain isn't going to help matters for those areas

Good morning everyone.

A frosty start to the day. I like frost, it makes everything look so pretty.

Squiggle, we haven’t had any snow up here yet.

We had a lovely time with the tiddlers.

Grocery shopping today - Moonie, I’ll get cakes.

Have a good day all 

Good morning everyone

 

Persistent rain here, heavy this morning, less so this afternoon. Not snowing here but there is at higher levels.

 

Squiggle, that is surprising for Devon to get snow this early

 

Yogi, I'm glad you had a lovely time with the tiddlers

Moonie will be pleased

 

I hope everyone has a good day
