Warm and sunny this morning for an easy biked six miles. Elton Reservoir in pic one.
Pic two of water soldiers clogging canal at Bury end. Still okay for bike rides.
Many midges about at moment, a pair of (sun) glasses really helps if biking near canal or reservoir.
Summer Solstice – years longest day. From today it gets darker. Already.
Sunny for morning’s bike-ride, partly, along Wellington Viaduct where they’ve painted-over cracks. Is it finally collapsing? (More to do with stopping weeds I think.)
On the Fun and News with Noughts Front those govern-mental consider nhs £25,000,000,000.00p additional funding options. (There are two: 1) Borrow. 2) Tax-rises. There are no other options.) Hammond has ruled-out 1) Borrowing. Ergo we’ll get 2) Tax-rises. Natch other ‘services’ have been told there’s no more £.
Dragging more folk into 40% tax-bracket already hinted at.
Apparently eu folk want to introduce visit-visa’s, at £7.00p a time, for Brits visiting eu after Brexit. What a great idea – a Visit Great Britain visa, for eu folk, could be reasonably priced at £20.00p a time, or, in nhs funding times, £50.00p a time.
A better pic of me new bike.
Health Check this morning and our nurse is brill. She said, ‘Watch your weight, get a scales from Asda.’
I lost half a stone carrying ’em home!
Mrs C said, “You need to lose weight.” I put thinner strings on me guitar.
Had lettuce and carrots for me lunch. Hearing’s improving… doc.
Really windy early-on and a spot or two of rain from Hector, but okay for biking all the way around Elton Reservoir. A new bike-route path touches the res. path at two new wooden gates. Tricky (not impossible) with a bike. Some real waves on the res.
Luckily no rain.
On the way diverted a few yards to Withins Reservoir – the path is dry at moment.
