    Lazing around today working from home - as is normal now.
    Half an hour on the rollers yesterday nearly killed me :disappointed:

    Lazing about for me too. Try letting some air out of your rear tyre, I run around 40psi on the rollers, a real workout

    Good sleep had. Already on a boring conference call, at least I'm only listening in. More of the same to come later, ho hum. May need coffee to power through.

    WFH, watching robins to and froing from the nesting box in the garden. The frequency would suggest the chicks have hatched.

    Morning. Off shift slobbing again. May run later. Cutting young Oxo,s hair later will be interesting, he's doing mine in return 😖. Thistle I'm guessing your rollers rebelled and spat you off if they nearly killed you.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    @ 40psi, you need a clutch of spare tyres shurley?

    Rained here. Bit of sun now. Really running out of things to do before Porker job.
    Must teach Shorty some stuff.

    Fine day indeed. Did the mowing, finally, because it is forecast to rain lots the next couple days so I thought I'd get it done. This is almost-but-not-quite-half of it...




    Rode bike after that, a lap in splendid isolation of the headland in the background.

    On a more concerning note, where is @awavey this week? Not seen anything from her in a while.

    Looks like someone needs some rain, if that half of it it's bigger than my local park.

    Doing some work, then hopefully get a bit further on with the destruction.
    Maybe bike, depends if I can get stuff done.

    Screwfix have deemed paint to be unneccesary so have pilled if from sale, paint brushes are readily available :neutral:

    Trouble is, the "soil" out there is basically sand, which is why the grass is so patchy. Means that any rain we get soaks through pretty much immediately too before it gets a chance to do much good... :/

    On a bit over 10 acres here.

    I have a load of leftover paint in the shed. Wonder what the black market resale value is like now.

    Probably less than a bribe to keep it hidden.

    That's random. Our equivalent ("Bunnings" hardware) is still open for business AFAIK. I know they've limited trading hours to give priority to tradesmen etc at certain times, and Joe Public at others, but not seen any info they are restricting product category sales.

    Ah ah child, way you shake that thing...

    As I thought to myself as a jogger passed me while I was walking the dog earlier. In the words of Alan Partridge, "Lovely stuff".

    Sungod appears to have regressed to the 70's, or is having a Led Zepp week. Maybe a new Robert Plant wig and tight trousers combo.

    Toad in the hole for tea.

    led zep week started over a week ago, then i decided to extend it

    a morning looking at security stuff, to top it all have been advised by gmc that i'm a 'key worker', 'worker'? ffs, the cheek of it

    I thought it was Fleetwood Mac last week.

    Can we have Lovin' Spoonful next? Or Bob Dylan? Or that Barry McGuire song that I like? Or Melanie, I like her. Joan Baez? Joni Mitchell? Lee Scratch Perry?

    I'm sure we had The Chain last week, but all the days they seem the same now.

    Yeah, you don't believe in war, but what's that gun you're totin'? Growly voice.

    Anyway, I got a love of Mozart and Verdi from my father, and all the 60's/70's folky/rocky stuff from my mother. 80's metal, then techno and Jungle was the sound of my yute. It all still gets played. Drives Mrs H³ nuts.

    Is it not in the paper today that Zoom now own all of us data, and they will use it for evil?
  • sungodsungod Posts: 14,366
    they've long been known for riffling through their users' data

    the nsa must have access at zoom's hubs (where the traffic is not encrypted), wonder if they got any video of bojo's private calls from solitary to his current gf

    They got my daughter and 25 other kids all talking over each other. Also my wife and her friends cackling inanely at each other.

    Though my daughter was telling me yesterday about an item of clothing called an "oodie" that she wanted. Next time I picked up my phone, lo and behold; spam ads for said item. I hadn't googled it, or typed anything. Fcukers are definitely listening.
