    Cloudy at the moment but another pleasantly warm day in prospect.

    I must get all my grass cut before my cataract op on saturday! So after I take the better half to the shops this am I shall get the mower out, fill it up with petrol and forget the grass box and mulch the grass and kick it around for the worms to pop up and eat.

    I think if its not too warm I should get it done in a couple of days and sit out quite a lot at the same time.
    This is one of the problems of living past four score years, the capacity for work is not the same!
    I am waiting for the magic bullet to cure all ills! ;)

    A very good morning to you all from Forest Heath cum every state in the union. No fbg today but 6 years ago I had dropped into the 4s and even saw a 3.9 by week two of LC. Probably due to mistaking per serving value for enough to satiate plus vastly ramping up exercise. Obviously not sustainable but weight and clothing fell orf fast. Splendid art @dunelm and I may give that meal a run out sometime. Good for you Popeye and splendid montage @gennepher . @Krystyna23040 The Brecks is popular today and I think I like Dereham - I googled Beetley. Two days of grandchild minding then three weekends of birthdays and possibly a grandson:woot: Advance into Wednesday with gusto chums and chumettes.

    Rationing out the grass cutting sounds like a great idea. Not so much a magic bullet but a good dose of theriac, mixed by a moon rabbit, may prove disastrous treacle.

    Good Morening Ladies and Gentlemen on this national bin day.

    A 4.6 on that evil, scheming meter of deception this morning.

    Me and me's are going to have to order coal in bulk for my steam driven sliderule if these low readings continue, tea bag are already ordered in bulk, give me quantum mechanics anyday over trying to calculate my insulin dosage.

    Well fellow posters, painters and gamers me and me's hope things are running well for you all, now it's time to take leave and start my busy day.

    Morning all

    Found this most interesting post about efficacy of face masks

    https://www.pnas.org/content/118/4/e2014564118.

    Rather a wall of text, but conclusion at bottom says they work
    And text in centre endorses use in public spaces where social distancing not possible....pity gov missed that bit.

    Right trying to gear up to next week

    Just checking i've got this Coronageddon right.

    We COULD have just waited until as many as possible were vaccinated,...

    but then we run into the winter season with other ailments to the fore to put pressure on the NHS....ok I can see some sense in that.

    People want parts, if not all their old lives & ways back ...
    I do, but we still need to be cautious, surely

    We COULD have just allowed as many to part take of normal society as much as possible, WITH mask wearing AND social distancing, while people continued to get vaccinated and data tumbled in about severity or not of this wave .

    Thus giving many as much as is SAFE & Practical, until more are vaccinated and data confirms the safety element of more contact equals lower risks

    But instead, the Govt has decided to let it rip no matter what cost ...( Which they won't be paying, btw..we will )

    And additionally, for 6 weeks we'll be paralysed regardless of how horrendously wrong it goes because no one's in charge, it's HOLIDAY time... yippee.

    In other news, must infuriate a football fan like Johnson .:hilarious: :hilarious::hilarious:

    that his boyhood dream of hosting the England Squad has been refused by the team ..<Standing Ovation>

    Squad declined to attend No 10 and be the dancing bears to entertain & enthrall Johnson & co.
    (Sure most can work out why from media reports )

    Must gall some in charge mere footballers dare to have such integrity..

    But for others it offers HOPE.

    Unlikely source in my opinion but green shoots of hope. I never detected much love for the Britannia Unchained loons and their spell in govt has caused some real head in hands reflection inside the Blue Team. Buy shares in Rishi. The fundamentals of BJ look overpriced. Juvenal made it clear it was both bread and circuses. The circus left town Sunday and he's no use whatsoever at providing bread.

    Hi Dunelm,
    When you go down into East Yorkshire keep your eyes peeled! There is a Black-browed Albatross off the cliffs north of Flamborough. It think probably it likes the shape of a gannets jib? That is, in lieu of another albatross that is of the appropriate gender.

    7.20am FBG 5.8 best for days including the days I didn't test.
    Still struggling through. Managed not to binge on carbs or alcohol yesterday. Did have extra snack of cheese before lunch.
    It's amazing how much weight I have gained in such a short time. This is really unusual for me as normally it's difficult to put it on and falls off easily. Really does show how insulin is storing all those carbs as fat. Yuk ....
