    Offices far away followed by a branch further away in Devon.

    Been a while since I’ve traveled with work……. Mmmmmmm to drink or not to drink is the question

    Gloomy wet windy grey today.
    I have noted the English spelling of the word grey and through curiosity looked it up:

    gray
    in British English
    (ɡreɪ)
    NOUN
    the derived SI unit of absorbed ionizing radiation dose or kerma equivalent to an absorption per unit mass of one joule per kilogram of irradiated material. 1 gray is equivalent to 100 rads
    Symbol: Gy

    Which got me thinking - how many kg's does Putin weigh and how many rads do we need to give him for a proper mashing?

    Depends if he's hiding in his bunker. Otherwise slip some polonium into his tea.

    Morning. Gloomy with some drizzle. WFW today. Took the car. CBA. Half asleep still. Searching for the ground with my good eye closed.


    Sometimes. Maybe. Possibly.

    Cider is mandatory in Devon. Should be some good scrumpy on tap. I don't know why you don't go there more often :)

    i'd go for about ten gray, enough to finish him, with a bit of time to suffer

    Good sleep but still a bit tired as only woke up when the alarm went off. Bit overcast here but plenty to keep me occupied on the work front. More number torturing and tax mitigation coming up: more tea first though.

    May try another bike ride later.

    Nah, it would be a Sue Gray then SFA would happen.

    More pre move planning and sorting, tick tock. Plus seeking a motor - need an estate car, for to get bikes inside innat - not much about and prices silly. Put off buying one 2 years back, no point as world closed down due to the C-word, hardly travelled, and the few hires I've made since total much less than depreciation plus maint plus insurance £.

    But in my new world order...

    Got up for a 6.30 rendezvous to ride, got the cancellation message due to rain and high winds at 6ish. Was already up so did a bit of fillering and painting, now in work and ready for bed.
    Got the small kids later, one at football the other just whinges. I'll take the former.

    Computers were down in greggs today, seems they're still running Windows 7 and Microsoft has reminded them with a blue screen that it's out of support :lol:

    Afternoon folks,
    Busy day in the orifice, at least the beautiful assistant is in which helps to ease my pain.

    Leaving is sounding like a good idea, but I'm too stupid and will end up staying for all the wrong reasons. IT not working is perfectly normal now, it's got to the point when we are surprised if something works.
    Problem isn't affording the car, it's affording the juice to make it go I suspect.
    Anacondas are better than people give them credit for. Ours was an early one and quite small for an estate, but it flew. Like a more modern Reliant Scimitar, not many 2 door estate cars around.

    Had to go and buy a functional work suit and some shoes today. I think checkout lady thought the waistcoat was part of the suit so didn't charge me the £74 it was marked at. Should I be feeling guilty?

    (I must add this was purely for work - my nice suits would get trashed carrying my kit as I do. Work is NOT paying for it)

    I haven't work a suit for work in ages, in fact I don't even wear trousers these days.

    Generic site meeting outfit is boots, jeans and a nice shirt.

    I was in here yesterday, it’s just been sand blasted so is dusty as hell

    isn't a kilt and a skirt the same thing?

    Supposedly a skirt is women only and a kilt is can be claimed by either sex. Therefore a kilt may be bi-sexual.

    To be worn when 'tossing the caber', so I heard.
