    Lovely white tail bumble bee study - buzzing about and pollinating your raspberry flowers. We have solitary bees - they float silently into the house - have a look around and then float out again.

    Good morning everyone from a blue and whispy morning here in the dark and dangerous north
    The wonder wheel of steak with celeriac chips came in at 5.1 this am

    We have been promised thunderstorms but so far just a damp squib of a day - drizzle, drizzle, splutter, stop - reminiscent of those red penny bangers that you could buy - never as good as a thruppeny cannon. Save your money and buy some fruit salads and black jacks.
    One of our smoke detectors is chirping for a new battery so I replaced it at 6am - forgetting, of course, that the thing goes mental as you affix the new life - no problem for Mrs Miggins, who is an all England sleeping coach. Not so for eldest son - oops!

    A fairly quick painting this morning - a la fu baoshi new Chinese painting movement. Have a wonderful Saturday and remember, submarine racing is sometimes far more entertaining than footy. Koffy time.

    Good morning all. Today I give thanks to my creator for the countless blessings He has bestowed on me in my 66 years. To my progenitors for all their work, love and care so that I may reach this point. Too much of what I type here comes from the feeling of “into what pit thou seest. From what height fallen:” Time to adjust whilst ensuring low carbing and this location do as little harm as possible. That is only possible IMHO with God’s help. Not miracles and signs but the love of family, quiet times of morning prayer and the poetry and speaking of Malcolm Guite. I’m always acutely aware of the fierce urgency of now/no man knoweth the hour (probably too aware). You are all lovely people, I have a wonderful family but ultimately the voice of reason says, is that all you got? The answer is, yes and it is enough for now because my faith is definitely not built on those alone. Necessary but ultimately not sufficient. Fbg 4.6 according to Swipey. Wild celebration with Sashimi, tea, salad, sons and grandchildren later.

    Thanks @SlimLizzy. I share a birthday with that object in No 10 :arghh:, (as well as a cousin of mine:woot:). Weather here, as you can see, not conducive to any feel good factor either.
