Indoor barbecue last night.
Reinforced my argument for a full length glass roofed awning / shelter type construction on the rear of the house .
Do you think episodes like these help us to differentiate between the concepts of 'weather' and 'climate'?
Or are we entirely banjaxed?
The Chinese are to put down a rover on the far side of the Moon. This calls for a bit of jiggery pokery in terms of comms as to and from links will have to go via a dedicated satellite position out at the Lagrange Point.
I think they're going up near the Pole, perhaps searching for ice. Water on the Moon is literally a free supply of fuel somewhere off in the future.
A Rover? Crazy! The should have gone for Nissan Leaf and they could at least charge it up every fortnight.
A parcel that arrived today had the bottom two of this series of astronomically-themed stamps on it.
The Flaming Star Nebula and The Spindle (apparently). https://rmspecialstamps.com/collections/the-sky-at-night/
I guess it would have been a bit much to expect to see "attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion".
The above, and below First Day Covers, were the last time I bought commemorative stamps.

The full planet set of Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune are all visible (wether permitting) at various times as well, although you will need optics of some sort for the last two.

Couldn't see anything from Blessed Bills.
No sign of the Moon here either.
Yep same down here in Cornwall. Weeks of clear night skies, and then a rare astronomical event, and it's f****** raining for the first time in six weeks. If there is a god, he's got a sense of irony you must admit.
God: "Hey, you donna like too much of the Sun, I givva you summa rain … youa moan."
Me: "Go forth and multiply (or words to that effect.)"
