Well, we went to Lytham - St Anne in search of seashore, plus Blackpool for the Illuminations. But late back, so it will all have to wait till tomorrow, complete with pix.
Goodnight, Sparklers, wherever you are--!
I didn't find any trouble... er, I mean, mischief, to get into today. Tomorrow is a fair promise, tho. The weather is supposed to be glorious, warm and sunny, so we're off in search of a beach.
Early night tonight, as tomorrow's a busy day ... Read more
'CROY-so eee COOM-ree' - welcome to Wales.
...so I said to Himself 'It's a beautiful morning. The sky is blue, the temps are forecast to be perhaps as high as the upper 70s. What say we go to a beach for me to dip my toes in the water?'

This might not be the shortest blog, but it's close.
Goodnight, Sparklers... let's hope tomorrow is a better day.

Today was a mishmash. First was an early meeting with the paving contractor - we're trying to time it so the tree-trimmer people are done before the driveway is started. Gah. Just coord... Read more
UPDATE: I clicked on the Lifehacker link and - just as you said - it says 'Page not found.' So I went back to one of the threads and clicked the link there - it worked. (I'll post it here). I also clicked on the link in the blog to SparkGuy's pa... Read more
I was going to toss off another 'fluff' blog - you know, the kind where I meander around the keyboard but don't really say anything - and instead, I'll do the following.
'SparkGuy' Chris Downie has posted a blog about Lifehacker, a sort of ... Read more
