    Obviously not. Or perhaps SG's home made Hadron Pineapple Colider wrapped in a quantum wotsit (out sourced to Vietnam and emitting back ground radiation resembling 80's punk) has been set to spontaneous reformation mode and is now erasing everything slowly...
    In 6 months, we'll all be Tabby cats and Surrey* will resemble an ancient volcanic landscape.

    *Probably a good thing really. The price of a coffee down there is totally exorbitant.

    They're not... out cycling are they?! Good God, whatever next.

    Sunny here. Trying to re jig swimming so I can go for a wobble.

    Laters.

    Well I'm not out cycling. Just enjoying some peace, some coffee and the sun streaming in through the patio window.

    Unfortunately Stropteen is playing in a concert tonight and I've been nominated to attend as apparently Mrs. 666 is too busy :roll:

    CBA to start today's thread as pedaled onto work at stupid time and only just thawed out. Day 2 of 4.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Still drunk from yesterday’s shoot, so walked rather than cycled

    Chopping wood and then a play on the fixie is planned before visiting the local

    Still drunk...,shoot....chopping wood. This can't end well.

    I was out on the common for an early walk with the dog. 2 hours we managed. Lovely sunny day.

    i was out cycling, sunny but windynippy, also seemed to be a convention of bad drivers going on

    surrey of dormant volcanoes and lava fields sounds good, judiciously draped with cycle roads and with a sprinkling of subterranean cafes
    my bike - faster than god's and twice as shiny

    abandoned the car in the second far park of the day, having a coffee and a toastie in a hipster cafe
    .
    they looked quite shocked when i asked for a large black coffee and one of them there toasted sandwiches please see, instead of a frappucino latte and pollo pannini which seems to be the standard order here.

    need more beard, wooly hat and belly to fit in methinks.

    Taking advantage of unseasonably dry weather to extend new fruit patch, prepping for the inevitable foodgeddon next year if these b4stard politicos continue to play silly bu66ers. Strawberries, in. Broad beans, in. Next is to break ground for more potatoes. Cycling? Turbo later at best.
  • Afternoon all.
    Cooking going on. Veg soup and pasta sauce. Now looking at a lot of washing up. Bright and sunny, chasing wasps out of the house. Like orraloon, I am also planning ahead and sorting out a trip to the continent for a huge amount of beer and wine for the upcoming Xmas period. Which means making more room in the cupboard for beer. It’s a dirty job etc...
    Cheers.

    Afternoon,

    Sorry, was out riding too given that I haven't seen a single cloud in the sky yet today. It's a bit nippy outside, and wet up on the moors which is bad for riding but the reserviors are starting to look a bit more full now.
    Loads of shiny new 'no cycling' signs have gone up on a track I've been riding up for 10+ years, not impressed :roll:

    They didn't like the skinsuit and aero helmet from the other day?

    it seems not. they also frowned upon mf setting up the turbo trainer by the counter.

    i reckon if he would have bought the Pashley all would have been tranquillo.

    Wahey, Mrs. 666 has decided she can go. So I get to lounge around with Muttley and watch the box :)

    Ok BBG, you must have some space spare in this pantechnicon you’ll be taking. Quick cellar check shows me I could do with a top up - next Belgian trip not until April, may be ‘fun’, may just stay - so I’m thinking a case of big 750ml Hommelbier, a case of St Bernardus 6, and a case of Houblon Chouffe would see me good until then. Cheers pal.

    I’ll see what I can do. I am also planning on going in February for further stockpiling in case Brexit turns out worse than anticipated. Fvck running out of medication and bog roll, I want to be sure of the essentials.

    yeah a critical beers run (or 2) before end of March 19 may be advisable. Stockpiles good.

    Funny old world innit.
