Halloween dress-up day at work: One mechanic came dressed as the senior mechanic. Subtle, but holy smokes the detail is hilarious.

We get frost every winter. It will freeze at night but warm up during the day. Not all days but enough to do in tender plants in the garden. And when it is at all damp, +5 degrees feels colder than -5 (Americans can google the conversion to their quaint units)

As to how much heating we need, there's the rub. The houses are so poorly constructed and insulated that you can't really heat them properly. Admittedly our crappy dog door doesn't help, but lots of single pane glass and leaky everything. Much of the house doesn't have heat. 



ha, sounds very familiar. I actually miss it.  /end of thread jack.


At first I was a tree, now I’m petrified. 

guess who!

Yeah, they have introduced standards for maintaining temperatures in rental housing here. That means it would be impossible to rent my house.

“Easy AM 66” A worthy successor to the Firesign Theater. “And once again we’re looking at a temperature of 75…unless you’re outside.”
William, and anyone with a radio background, I think you’d especially enjoy.

Driving in to work I often see things that make me do a double take; this morning it was a small sedan tootling along, with a banana … on the back window; outside; held in place by the spoiler. I can just imagine the driver looking in the rear view mirror and thinking: “OH! There’s my breakfast!”

Oh yeah.
It was worse for one than smoke.
Playing outside when I was a youngster... my lungs would hurt breathing in. And the eyes would burn.
Walking to school in the early morning fog... the eye's would burn from the mist getting into them.
Holey moley!
