I looked in the mirror for the first time in a week...
Recommend a nice cup of tea, set up the chess board, and get a good walking staff for your daily excursions.

A transformation will occur from the haggard old man to...

Also, I imagine you have gotten the media memo by now - but if you don't already do so, please close the lid before flushing.

Turns out coronavirus can travel in aerosolized poo particles. : Q

Trying to get a pool delivered. (I know, I should have an in-ground one. Long story.) These are the suppliers:

My phone's photo app keeps notifying me about new 'memories' it has added. Invariably events when I was out-bloody-doors.

In the movies when Our Hero has finally Had Enough he invariably shaves his head. The first swipe of the electric razor and his once flowing locks fall efficiently into the washbasin. In real life, unless he happens to be a professional hairdresser, dog groomer or sheep shearer with some serious kit in the bathroom cabinet, this is not what happens. For the first two hours of hacking away you look like an Abyssinian guinea pig with mange.

Now you know, in case you were thinking of experimenting.

They say that symmetrical faces are the most beautiful. The good news is that I've discovered mine is perfect is this regard. The bad news it's symmetrical about the horizontal axis. Could be worse, could be 45 degrees.

the amount of people with tattoos exploded in Norway last 15 years or so...

when it goes out of fashion it will be a booming business in removing tattoos.

Until then don't forget: Non-Tattooed lives matter also! Respect!

I'm thinking about getting rid of all my tattoos. They faded over the last 10 years and I don't like them anymore, so cover them with clothes. Not so comfortable in the summer.

(northern) Venice is not what it used to be, but good to have a boat at the back door with access to the international water ways, just in case!

Just use photo-shop to get crystal blue water and free from macro and micro plastic fantastic! Good place for next Bond movie, jumping from the balcony with lots of bonds, remember to drop the negative coupons in the fall to distract the opponents, zero coupon bonds taste better than ever!
