Obviously, I can do that too when required..;)

An interesting spectacle in the very clear twilight sky these evenings. A glorious new crescent moon in formation with a bright Venus. Venus gaining elongation in the solar system throughout the coming months. 

Years ago in the Broads I witnessed a display of the Milky way arching from horizon to horizon. There was no light pollution at the time and no mist, just a crystal clear sky. When these things are clearly visible I always take time to immerse for a while in something different from the daily grind. Man may come and go but the stars (and their subordinates) go on and on in their own predetermined ways.

Having read that, I looked out of the window to my left, and there it was - in full view.

Trip to Retford market this morning but called at Markham first to pick up a garden shredder/chipper I bought second hand so that will be a job for tomorrow, give it a good cleaning, oiling and greasing where needed before starting on the birch tree cuttings I did a few weeks ago, anyway, cold and damp In Retford but had a nice breakfast in one of the little cafes near the market place, didn't fancy sitting in traffic at the roadworks on the outskirts of the town so decided to turn left out of the car park and head toward the A1 that way, big mistake, A1 blocked solid with traffic heading south from the Worksop junction, quick change of plan so finally ended up driving through part of Sherwood forest to Ollerton and back though Newark, nice drive so not complaining

Loving our newly installed wood-burning fire.  It’s not yer traditional type, we went for a ‘cassette’ type that sits inside a hole in the wall and it’s just gorgeous to look at and sit beside.

We don’t have a fireplace in our little bungalow - wish we did-  and there’s not even enough space to fix an electric fire against the wall.  We do have radiators though so we do keep warm..

Today I shall be mostly changing lubes on Chrysler.

Moving hen coop ably assisted by cats. Communicating with hens and cats as needed.

Listening to the existential problems my kids are having to deal with as their incomes exceed their desired expenditure. Here Mr. Dickens comes to mind .........

“Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure nineteen nineteen and six , result happiness.
Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure twenty pounds ought and six, result misery”

 

Mebee listen to a little music as the oil runs from Chrysler running gear..........for me heavenly!

 

Yesterday evening I watched "Three Minutes: A lengthening" on BBC iplayer quite a thoughtful documentary lasting about an hour. I would recommend it to anyone.

Today after a small bowl of Shreddies, I did knee exercises. 

Later, I took the long way round to the shops on foot and was totally 'banjaxed' when I got back.

Thankyou sir, can't beat a D running at 700 rpm and the ST at 1100 rpm and the little Suffolk enjoying itself at 1500 rpm

I used to have my cornflakes with hot milk when I was at school.

I have Shreddies with cold semi skimmed milk but like to let them soften for a few minutes before eating.

Lizzie, my dads favourite too was 2 shredded wheat, Shreddies is the latter day version but definitely not as good as the original. Golly, might have to buy one or the other when I go shopping tomorrow now.

My Dad had 2 Shredded Wheat every single day of his working life for breakfast.  I’ve never been keen on it. 

Neither have I, it is like chewing soggy string.

I quite liked Weetabix and had a workmate who ate them dry with honey and peanut butter on them for morning tea.

Puffed Wheat was my favourite as a kid, did not like Sugar Puffs, far too sweet.

What was your favourite breakfast cereal

Danny Blanchflower (Spurs footballer) used to say "Pass the hot milk please" when he was advertising Shredded Wheat back in the late 50's early 60's
