    Morning folks. What a wonderful day may be damp and cloudy but it's my Friday so DGAF. Roll on normality, enjoy you day folks.

    Prep for tomorrows board meeting. Lots of red ink on financials and going into 20/21 budget, redundancy notice deadline for ending furlough. Armageddon seems about right.

    There's an abundance of butter in SG's snacks.
    I feel that it is imperative that to sustain the intake of bubbly and butter based foodstuffs, he keeps cycling.
    I had a cursory look for some scholarly articles about the relationship between Pineapple and cholesterol but couldn't find anything.

    Today is wet. I also discovered that Honda has been hacked. Some operations have been suspended. Just my luck when I need some mower spares.

    The only upside is that it's too wet to mow.

    Morning, its damp, decided the gravel bike was a better choice, also meant I could wear some northwave boots from my MTB days so no skating penguin look when I got to the shop.
    Had an amusing letter through my door from my local Co-Op as well, they've started using these little delivery robots and the letter basically says the hill on our road is to steep for them to get up.
    So it robots do start taking over the world just thwart them by living on a steep hill bonus points if its like the one in the Hovis ad with the cobbles.

    I think a few people on here subscribe to the 'exercise enough so you don't need to worry too much about what you eat and drink' theory. It's better than the alternative as long as the side effect isn't being a fat [email protected] :)

    Busy morning - long call then dropped the family mobile off at local garage to get something fixed before I can flog it (which will be used to pay for my dental implant). Easy come, easy go....

    Onwards to lunch and more video meetings, including one later that will include drink.

    Delivery robots? The local Co-Op? Checks date. Nope, not April 1st. Seriously? You sure they are not just using otherwise aimlessly heel-kicking schoolkids?

    now all i'm thinking about is combining the robots with homemade napalm

    time for a stroll and coffee

    Nope, seen them about quite amusing little things

    Old news story from their roll out but they started doing a lot more with lock down, takeaways can also use them.

    Evening folks,
    Another busy day of wfh, head spinning from too much screen time. I'm sure beer makes it spin the other way so just the right doseage will cancel it out. Maybe a bit too much just to be sure.

    Highway robbery 'stand and deliver' will never be the same.
    Perhaps 'bee de bee de beep, (okay Buck)' will be more apt.

    Not as wet as anticipated. Decent pedal, albeit cool.

    As long as it's a tailwind it's fine.
