Jenny is having a minor eye operation today and depending on her vision she may be here she may not. No doubt she will give us the full gory technicolour details tomorrow.

On the home front after another cold night we have a clear blue sky again and it is warmer hovering around 0c. I had a little stroll and got another 2 miles into these old legs.. Time for a brew and a chew,catch you soon.

Fact of the day

The world's most isolated tree was the Tree of Ténéré, in the Sahara desert, which was the only tree for 250 miles. Despite it being so isolated, a drunk Libyan truck driver knocked it down and killed it.

Living at risk is jumping off the cliff and building your wings on the way down.
