7 January 2011


The other day we ventured out in a chill gale to document our lively city for posterity... yet again.

The snow meant limited trips to the shops and now I have lost all taste for commerce.
There was a sort of enforced siege mentality for several days after Christmas. Water dribbled from cold taps, thankfully only for twelve hours at a stretch during the night. I wondered if the central heating would blow up...
It didn't...

Conversations with (yet more) "Angry People" led to insight.
"Have you tried laughing?", I asked.
"Apparently it raises the natural lsd levels in the brain and gives a delusional sense of wellbeing."

Here's, in any case, to another jolly year at the computing coalface.
Today I revamped my Crimespace page, taking almost an hour to remove a Christmas Greeting from the side image system.
Here's to success in 2011 and to a hope that Davimack's heating and water systems will start to behave...

Here's hoping! Although, the water temperature coming into the house is downright frigid, so the boiler really doesn't heat it up enough for us to take an enjoyable shower.

Methinks we need to move away from this isle to someplace warmer. :)

The captcha for this comment was "bootiess" ... making me wonder just what one of those might be.

I grew up without central heating so have strategies for survival that go back to the Middle Ages on these islands.

Joining a swimming pool is one way of having access to copious warm water in showers.

I agree, however, that warmer climates are so much easier overall.

"Bootiess"... a combination of "booties" and "bootless" perhaps?

Here's wishing you both every success in 2011.
