Nothing wrong with raw milk. When I was a kid the guy who pumped it out of the cow also delivered it to your house. No bottles, you just left a saucepan next to the letter box and he filled it up. You could watch the entire process from grass to home because his cows grazed at the local swimming hole at Mungabareena.

I was driving along just before lunchtime today and was stuck in an annoying stopped bit of traffic on the A12.  I had Ken Bruce on Radio 2 on and he played The Carpenters' Top of the World.  For some reason, the traffic just melted away as it started playing, I was able to put the cruise control on at 70mph on nearly clear roads.  The song finished and within a couple of seconds the traffic just seized up again and it was abysmal traffic for the rest of the journey.

A branch of Morrisons has opened just up the road in Colindale/Burnt Oak (not far from where the London Broncos were based last year).

 

I went to take a look. On a Sunday afternoon. Which was a very stupid time to visit any supermarket. Not only was it crowded, but virtually everyone in there was fairly lost, as it only opened 4 or 5 days ago.  :fie:

 

Still, it does stock League Express. I'll visit it at a more carefully-selected time in future.

Did you know that if you are watching a Youtube video and press a number key then it goes to x0% of the way through, e.g. if you press 5 it goes 50% of the way through.

Did he then play "(They long to be) Close to you" ?

After a year in California, I finally saw a rattler.  Probably, that was the opinion of the I was cycling with.  It was huge.  I changed direction so as not to cycle over it and that was probably wise.

Those things would worry me. That type of venom dissolves tissue so even if you survive you easily lose an arm or a leg.

 

Snakes are ancient history anyway. Sydney is now under attack by Brush Turkeys.

I'm getting fed up of people using military terms then insisting that it's not military and is a fancy new business consultancy technique invented by a certain genius business consultant. The latest to hit me regularly is After Action Report. Apparently I'm mistaken that this is something the military has ever done because it's such a novel concept.

In the company Christmas raffle of gifts from suppliers I won a bottle of champagne and a case of Fosters

 

 

Lady Luck giveth and Lady Luck taketh away...

And this morning I went to the beer fridge in the garage and there is the Fosters still unopened.

The champagne didn't make it past Christmas Eve.

Thank you for that. I have jobs to do  but I have now been on a (short) journey taking in Julius Caesar's "Commentarii de Bello Gallico " and apparently the first use of AAR, Vercingetorix's surrender to Caesar after the battle of Alesia (Mont-Auxois, near Alise-Sainte-Reine in Burgundy), the Vercingetorix statue in Clermont Ferrand and to the site of a battle between the Romans and Vercingetorix and his forces on the Plateau de Gergovie, just south of Clermont Ferrand ( well worth a visit)

The lady I was with said it was the first time she had seen a snake and she has been here a geed few years and spends much of her time out cycling and skating.  The first time I went for a jog around here I saw signs warning me of the snakes, which did set me on edge.  Actually getting bitten is rare though.  There is a main road outside my apartment, which is far more likely a way for me to lose life or limb.

They need to put the moose on the table, get their ducks in a row, then take this offline for some bluesky out of the box thinking. Plenty of non-military garbage they can talk (assuming none of those are borrowed from the military).

Not the military - I think you may actually be channelling Donald Trump.
