    Fbg 5.7
    Temp 35.9


    The lightning was horrendous last night. It went on and on and on.

    Huge pure white sheets that lit up the garden whiter than day. It was scary. Lightning doesn't normally startle me. I normally love lightning (and go outside to watch it), but the prolonged intensity of this was beginning to scare me. It was upsetting Popeye. Impossible to sleep. And so I had to put my silk rice eyebag on my eyes so the contours completely sealed out the lightning.

    Still hot indoors, cooler outdoors by 6C, so 19C outdoors.
    Already got doors and windows open to invite the cooler air in.

    Just been watching the Perseid shooting stars. Still plenty of shooting stars. Night sky is clear at the moment.

    I can see hot relentless sun is promised all day...

    Take care.

    Good Morning and 5.8 for me today.

    Big dramatic storms again last night.

    Tesco forage for me at 7pm then a visit to check and clear more of MILs bungalow.

    Accept what the day offers you with a bold spirit. Keep safe.

    Good Morening Ladies and Gentlemen and all who hope for lower temperatures today.

    A 6.5 on the meter of mystery and misbehaving this morning.

    Well today fellow posters and painters I am going to guess the media will be full of A level results or not and how our elected leaders making it all seem a huge derailment. They, the media are the masters of hindsight, in my opinion. Which incidentally counts for nothing.

    These last few months appear to taught us that we as a nation had lost sight of core necessities of life, so perhaps in the far distant future this period of time will be viewed as beneficial. It is a tragedy so many people had to die.
    Rather a sobering post from me, I make no apologies.

    Well today I could possibly to taken to supermarket car park where I can walk around the far end while Mrs J does whatever ladies do in supermarkets with trolleys.
    Whatever your plan for today is, look for the silver lining and nick it.
    Now I must go and make the elixir of the morning, yes koffy.

    That sounds like a scary storm. Hope Popeye is ok now.

    Our Labrador Saffy used to be petrified of storms and took ages to settle down afterwards.

    Archie our Chocolate Labrador is the complete opposite. He used to absolutely love storms and fireworks. I say used to because he now can't be bothered to watch storms. He prefers to sleep. He also used to love watching the stars in the sky.

    6.0 this morning and grey skies abound :)

    I sat out in the storm as promised, it was a beauty. Warm rain and nature's orchestra along with a drop of Talisker (coaster on top of the glass). We have more storms on the horizon

    Enjoy your day :)

    Good morning everyone from a quiet and sober morning in the dark and dangerous north

    The wonder wheel of spiced leftover soup came in at 4.9 this am

    Not a lot on the cards today - a bit of shopping. We have though booked a table at a little local delli and charcuterie for some socially distanced cold titbits.
    Communications between IPad and printer is a bit intermittent at the moment - can’t be the ionosphere - they just probably are having a tiff. Ah well, turn them both off and re-set the router - again. Do try and play nicely and share.

    @gennepher - two very different paintings - a very dark and stormy one and a simply wonderful shooting star - was it Perseid?
    @Muddy Cyclist - roots are growing - coming along well.

    Have a great day if you can, all the best to anyone who has A-Level results relatives - let’s hope we don’t have any results parties resulting in virus spread. I have no idea about this sketch but will be now having koffy.

    Good morning all either having experienced, currently experiencing or waiting for thunderbolt and lightning, very, very frightening and all that. Much cooler here and all the signs are we shall have rain of some description.My fbg may be a distant cousin of the 4.5 the logbook shows for 4.35 this morning. More time with No 5 grandchild today and No 6 looked all present and correct when scanned yesterday. Have a great day and if you royally screw up just blame the media because you're worth it

    Morning...not one drop of rain yet although it is cooler this morning thank goodness...cats are so jittery I expect a storm is on the way...no idea why I listen to the news Gavin Williamson seeks to explain the downgrading of some pupils exams stating that if they hadn't changed the system some pupils may have been promoted to positions beyond their capabilities...so that explains why we have the current administration in !0 Downing Street all seem to have been promoted above theirs..woke to a 6.5...keep safe everyone.

    A Beethoven moment along with my favourite whisky. Good idea the coaster on top of the glass, I hadn't thought of that as away of cutting down my alcohol intake:)

    That guy gives the impression he is ever so slightly unctuous, he can sidestep questions with oily dexterity.
    I don't know why I like him so much!:)

    We missed the storms again although there was some rain. It's somewhat cooler today.

    I see there are moves to change the law soon, if someone takes offence at what someone says, it may become an offence. Hence no more jokes about an Englishman, Irishman and a Scotsman.
    An whole raft of British humour will be banished from life.

    this morning at 5 AM fbg was 3.6 at 7 AM 3.9 had some porridge for breakfast BG shot up to 6.8 that was ok got rid of the nasty head ache I woke up with but just tested and BG now at 3.7 do not know what is going on.

    We have been promised thunder and lightning for several days now but so far no sign of it except for one puny flash far off in the distance.

    Yesterday sat on a bench in the park reminded me of a past visit there a couple of years back the bench in the photo is the bench from yesterdays trek Looked a bit different yesterday though.

    He also said 90% would get the right marks wondering what happens to the 10% who don't...why did I mention the lack of rain we've just had a storm with rain so heavy it was frightening.

    My God offenders will be queuing out the door at the law courts. Imagine all the different utterances that can cause offence.
