Yeah, electric storms here last night. Saved me watering.
PCR, wfw, interview candidate, wfh, start packing.0 
Today I will be mowstly applying copious amounts of herbicides, continuing the strimmer action, carting keerap various to the tip before attempting a clear transit of the M6 for the 4th time in a row. Sun's out, wind's dropped, it's nice here 😎0

Nice little light show in the sky last night before turning in. Hounds paid no attention as lighting isnt small, furry/feathery and edible.
Into the office for the third day on the trot and I'm a bit knackered as I've never really agreed with early mornings. At least the coffee is free at work, but it's a classic case of you get what you pay for..."I spent most of my money on birds, booze and fast cars: the rest of it I just squandered." [George Best]0 
The pea and the pineapple paradox... Hmm.

The toots sports day today will thankfully interrupt a glossing marathon.
I can vouch for 'Loon  there's a round bright thing emanating from the East. I shall report it.
No lightning here, pity  damn council cutbacks, though all the rain recently has made the roads a mess, gravel everywhere.seanoconn  gruagach craic!0 
Early hound walk followed by a nice drive to Swansea on the back roads with lots of people flashing and making gestures which I assume were congratulations on your overtake.
Meetings all day, hopefully a quick run before the drinking starts0 
went very dark here, parked at cafe two just before it poured down, arrived back undrenched, tubs seem to have dodged glass
cafe three stroll uneventful, need to plan lunch
finished gluing new tubs on new wheels yesterday, may give them a go later, then i've got that set ready for hols

Evening folks,
Today was my Friday which makes me very happy, lad is back from Italy and had a great time, which also makes me happy. Work is an absolute shitshow so I'm thinking about the happy things.
Fettled the MTB ahead of a pootle tomorrow, doing our usual of getting a train to Guildford or Godamnitalming and then wobbling back along the Wey towpath. Pub lunch will feature, probably a couple of other refreshment stops for good measure.

Pi55ed down here last night in Crete, in bloody Crete!
So today it’s freezing and windy,
mooched about in town, had lunch and came back for dinner.

If it makes you feel any better HD, it tanked down here last night as well. Whereabouts in Crete are you?homers_double said:Pi55ed down here last night in Crete, in bloody Crete!

Banach–Tarski paradox
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Can a ball be decomposed into a finite number of point sets and reassembled into two balls identical to the original?"
The Banach–Tarski paradox is a theorem in settheoretic geometry, which states the following: Given a solid ball in threedimensional space, there exists a decomposition of the ball into a finite number of disjoint subsets, which can then be put back together in a different way to yield two identical copies of the original ball. Indeed, the reassembly process involves only moving the pieces around and rotating them without changing their shape. However, the pieces themselves are not "solids" in the usual sense, but infinite scatterings of points. The reconstruction can work with as few as five pieces.[1]
An alternate form of the theorem states that given any two "reasonable" solid objects (such as a small ball and a huge ball), the cut pieces of either one can be reassembled into the other. This is often stated informally as "a pea can be chopped up and reassembled into the Sun" and called the "pea and the Sun paradox".

And transit #4 of M6 completed with no hold ups. 👍 Lucky me. Time for a coldie and a pizza in the oven, no time / energy to be cooking after a looong day.
Edit: just encountered a very busily munching (and sneezing) hedgepig, first time this year actually to see one eating, the food's been going steadily for weeks now. Forza Spike.0
