How's your day?

Recommended Posts

Awoke to a frozen tent early this mornming so I went out fro a bike ride in the dark. Yes I know...I'm bonkers. Came back and had a quick breakfast before going out into the moors for a long walk. The day turned out fine and sunny but a bit on the cold side, with a chilly breeze. I have just finished cooking an Ethiopian style meal for tea and I am looking forward to it, so without further ado let me say that photos will be available of the moors, possibly tomorrow,  if any turn out ok.

Compo, what on earth possessed you to stay in a tent overnight? Especially  where you live.

Compo lets see if the cold has caused any cognitive impairment:

Waddo: A typical Ethiopian dinner consists of a spicy sauce, vegetables par boiled until just Al Jolson Dente and a large, flat, fermented pancake-like bread called Injera. Pudding is usually either Creme caramel or Bula (A kind of semolina made from the innards of the Ensette plant). One then finishes with wery strong coffee in a tiny cup and cake or biscuit.  It takes a bit of getting used to but it is certainly different. :)

Incidentally, Ethiopia now has one of thte fastest growing economies in the world. Since the end of the war that caused all the trouble in the 1980s., the government has teamed up with China and the Chinese are putting in roads all over the place and extracting minerals like they are going out of fashion. The resultant wealth is filtering down through the population and there are probably fewer rough sleepers in their cities than we have here in UK.

That's good to know compo, it's something that's not wildly publicised, well not that I've noticed.

Beginning to panic about my concrete plinth for the phone box (which should arrive on Saturday). It is still looking quite damp and not as set as I had hoped it would be. I had asked for delivery to be mid-January but the machine could only be had this coming Saturday. :unsure:

Make sure they put a antifreeze additive in the mix, and the temp is rising or else you will have problems!!

Thought about you on New Years eve compo, just wondering if you would be bivvying up as usual. I only do that in fine weather these days. Second day of the year and second row of the Virtual challenge. Just easing myself into the daily routine with steady 10k rows. The plan is to build up to 20k p/d by the end of Jan. Bit slow these days atb12kph.

It's an infinite unit of capacity in the Ethernet, an infinitesimal number of which would be required to document the relationships of @benjamin1945 and would probably cause the worldwide web to crash! :wacko:

How's  my day?  It started last night with a laxative preparation, Moviprep in 1 ltr of water. Took all that then waited for toilet explosion......Bloody Nothing !!! But I did throw up in the bathroom an hour later. Told them at the hospital today and they decided to reschedule. However, they did go ahead with the Endoscopy, so I didn't get the "Top n Tail", just the top. Drunk gallons for nowt,  what a bummer, or maybe I should rephrase that!

Remember the theory that a monkey with a typewriter could eventually write all the works of Shakespeare ?

 

The monkey would achieve that result faster than it would compile a list of Ben's adventures.
