    Many years ago when utterly skint I put a wheel together from a good rim with shagged centre and a good centre with a shagged rim.

    Once was enough.

    In more personal news, as an unexpected side effect of the Dreaded Lurgi (their oppo dropped out owing to buboes), I will be playing cricket here this arvo:

    Trouble with all these country house cricket grounds is that, as the leg spinner, I have to find time to get in round the back and rifle the jewel cabinet, as well as playing and taking photos!

    All will be well now Ruth Davidson joins the House of Lords. She should feel right at home in that place.

    Saw a young fox on the way home from work. Lovely wee thing.

    A fit looking rural one, or a poor specimen of the urban type?

    Well, despite being an absolutely urban* one, it was a fit and healthy looking beauty. :)



    *I suppose the golf course is just down the road from there, and the verges to a railway line, but it was essentially 100m from a housing estate.

    Step-grandson just given me a quote for felling a fairly chunky ash - £150. I was guessing about £350-400 beforehand.

    Also gave neighbour a quote of £200 for removing a large-ish branch.

    Useful having family in the trade.

    I'll do it for £149 but you pay travel expenses. And provide tools.

    Actually that's a good price I'd say, well done.

    Well, here's Stoneleigh Abbey. We lost, but it was a good game. Lovely spinners strip, 8-1-22-2 for me.

    Effing hot, though - I worked out I must have shifted about 4 litres of liquid before my kidneys noticed. That's a lot!

    I've just found out wood pellet cat litter is flushable! And I tried it and it is!

    I used to when our cat used a litter tray, however I have since found out that we shouldn’t flush cat waste in the toilet. Our sewerage system is set up to break down human waste. It will not get rid of potential parasites found in cat faeces and therefore can enter our waterways and ultimately our drinking water.

    Many years ago I read about a project to provide "solar stills" to places in Africa and India where contamination was a serious problem. I wonder how that worked out?
