1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    someone once weighed out Analar grade Capsaicin without the aid of a fume hood. A small breeze led to 3 of us explosively sneezing and then laughing as we realised what was happening. We had snot coming out of our noses and tears from our eyes. The boss came in to investigate the racket, saw what was happening and left, as the door shut he let out an almighty sneeze which started us all over again

    Is the waiter confused? Or are they really wanting to be a barber? (A hairdresser would never ask such a thing!)

    Well it is 14 degrees back here in Worcestershire today. Even the pond Goldfish have decided it is warm enough to come out and explore.

    Wet-cleaned (AntiStat) 30+ records. Not expecting much, but if they sell at a £1+ then it was worth it.
    Threw away some Jim Reeves, Charlie Drake (!) and an Orbison 7” that was warped.

    Ordered a Headphone amp to give it a try.

    Eldest Granddaughter is staying over this evening :)
    She is 13 going on 20 and frequently complains about the patriarchy.
    We will get to hear about who she currently hates at school - pupil and/or teacher.
    Gee-Kid is coming up to making her subject choices. An interesting time.

    Crispy Duck, pancakes, etc. later. Maybe some hot sour soup.
    Later I might get to choose a film to watch. The women will poo-poo my choices.

    Sold an album via Discogs for Headway charity. Once the punter is happy with their purchase, I can present about £80 (+gift aid) to the manager. It was an Abba album. Lot of pennies for Abba. Mind you, I had reduced the price twice over a year - started at £150…

    Decided as it was +14 here, rather than -4 when I last tried, I’d do my 80km ride. And so I did. Very nice it was too, well apart from the wind but you can’t have everything.

    Now chilling with the House of Love in a retro 1990’s style. I may even start on the valpolicella later. Livin the dream.

    And some are in different time zones, too. I'm starting to think this flat earth business is malarky.

    A different kind of early morning start. I had to meet a French man at 6.30 am near St Pancras to hand over a piece of hifi. Turned out to be a Eurostar driver.
