    Where is the sun?

    Long run, few jobs and probably a bike ride with the current wife before ale. But first the hounds need to go out

    Morning from the brickworks. Cool and cloudy out, late start so driven in. Calm before the storm, everything kicks up next wk onwards. Will be socially distancing myself after next Friday for 2wks whilst censored hits the fan as new Muppet up top meets the production lads. Blood will be spilt, CV,s being updated in anticipation. As suggested yesterday new guy is making stupid stupider without added stress of Covid controls. Enjoy your day folks.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Went for a spin on that bike thing I've got. Cool and cloudy but pleasant, and the sun came out for the last 10 minutes.
    Raspberry pi arriving today apparently. Need to work out how it fits in with my world domination strategy.

    Bit of brekkie shortly then drive to the country and let the hounds loose. After that, no idea.

    Can you link that pi thingy up with the network of Russians and Chinese satellites?

    Afternoon folks,
    Slowish start was had, still feeling less than 100% for some reason. More lounging doesn't seem to have fixed it yet, might have to pop some pills. Bit of pottering should be attempted I guess, maybe another low stress low tech ride.

    Lazy day. Few house chores early, then extended bask till lunch. Out foraging this afternoon.

    Visiting mother meant an evening shouting over cards, because the hearing aid batteries always die early.

    Bit of sitting about. A bit of trying to work out whether it's worth booking an emergency week in Cornwall in case the planned summer holiday in crete at the end of August fails to materialise. I was due to be flying to Almeria for a week of sun, jamón, secreto and jerez next Saturday, so a bit of self pity. A bit of listening to Mrs H³ specifying the home office for the end of the garden. A longish walk with them plus hound. So. Many. People.

    Meh. Feckin' virus.

    Was debating a Pi a while back to make an eInk weather reader thing. Never got further than making some of the code work in a basic fashion.

    Get an ESP32 with the eInk attached.
    This is a TTGO T5 so comes with a socket for a lipo battery and built in USB charger. Lasts about 2 weeks between charges.
    It even reminds which which bin to put out.

    The websites are taking bookings from 4th July, which is government's estimate of "phase 3". Trouble is that no one is offering refunds. A nice biggish house in somewhere near the sea in Devon of Cornwall is at least 2k. So do I take the risk of losing that, or the risk of everything being taken if the phase 3 date happens, or the risk of crete not happening, or the risk of the MASSIVE mood of Mrs H³ if no hols. Too many risks for my tiny head.

    Our hols are booked for the 17th July. Theoretically, as its in the sticks, we could still isolate?

    If we don't get to go, we can transfer the booking till next summer. If that happens, we'll probably go somewhere in October.

    Hmm... I reckon you might be wasting money. If Crete is cancelled then Cornwall might be as well. Or neither are but you can only go on one. If I were you I would tell Mrs H3 to pay for the backup hol with her own money if she's that bothered.

    We've just transferred ours to next year and will attempt something later in the yr if possible.

    Now that looks perfect as I didn't want it very big. Is the code online for it?

    You really want some software and a display to tell you: Cloudy, rain, cloudy rain, cloudy, rain?!
