    8.2 today which is somewhat frustrating, however work is really stressful at the moment, and I’m living off of eating at work and hotel food so all in all it’s not awful

    Good morning. :) It is just after 9 here, I think it was about quarter to 3 when you wrote that.

    FBG 7.7, outside temp 70 with clouds and wind (21C, why don't computer keyboards have the "degrees" symbol I wonder?)

    Excuse me butting in, but @JohnEGreen the verse in your signature was part of our school reading! Brought back memories as I browsed.

    To stay on topic, FBG was 4.5.

    I just felt that it is a verse for our times it just speaks to me.
