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.

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.
