Oh the weather outside is frightful ...

Blimey! It's nearly Christmas already .. and, well, I've got some presents bought. But what is going on with the weather?

When I were a lad ... [cue old-man voice] ... all this was fields. Oh, and we had snow. Real snow .. stuff wot went "creak" when you trod on it. Dahn Sarf all we get is a wind-and-rain combo. Pah!

Rip it up and start again ...

OK, OK. Let's just pretend that was "R&D" .. and begin again.

So: on to my life. Well .. bits of it. And my loves and hates. We could start with a Nice Cup of Tea and a Sit Down. Mmmm Nice [as in biscuits ;^)].

Oh, FWIW, the editor thingy seems to works fine in Firefox. Hurrah!
