‘Low water’ at Elton Res this morning and only a few birds at feeders. Not too warm today so ideal for bikes.
Lately tax returns can be filed online at hmrc website. You’re forced to give an e-mail – the huge bog-roll of questions needed to determine how much £ you ‘owe’ won’t unroll without an e-mail. From then on in you’re deluged with hmrc spam asking for payment/to file latest return/to pay £ ‘upfront’. They also spam you with ‘business’ (taxation) ‘advice’. Bearing in mind the (public sector) ‘national debt’ and the yearly deficits, the last folk you need £ advice from are hmrc! Nothing, repeat nothing annoys wealth-creators more than time-wasting harassment for £ or being ‘advised’. An annoyed wealth-creator shuts-up shop and looks for a deck-chair on a sunny beach. Even then e-mails tell you to fill-in a tax-return!
Doh!

Okay for bike-riding this morning so a look at old railway cutting, from Bury, that’s not yet bike rideable as an extension of Daisyfield Greenway. The blocked-up bridge has been gravelled up top and the track carries-on a bit but is blocked by a large gravel pile.
This track should take us to Black Lane area near Constellation Mill. Railway cutting is well overgrown as yet, pix 1 and 3.

Still busy with work here as yet.

It’s supposed to be ‘hottest day of year’ so a canal ride undertaken. It threw it down! But unusual pics of Withins Bridge taken before the deluge.
Sadly a deceased swan in canal near topless bridge, Coney Green Farm. Checked-out canal society FB page but it’s a ‘closed’ group.
News with Noughts is of Lord of Rings TV series being the most expensive yet – a budget of $1,000,000,000.00c. Next is Netflix’ The Crown.
Passport fiasco still winges on. It’s reckoned that foreign made passports will lose UK £162,000,000.00p in tax. (Oh what a tangled web we weave, when we start to … )

Today, according to msm, will be hottest so far this year with tomorrow hotter still and hotter than Morocco. It was freezin’ out on the bike this morning. Pic from a few days ago at Bury South.
Also in msm is that foreign aid rises to £14,000,000,000.00p this year. Yet look at our roads … and litter … and miniscule old-age-pensions …
Watched another Striking Out tv show episode last night. It’s soapy but still interesting as young lady solicitor tries to go it alone after ditching errant boy-friend – the solicitor son of rich, legal-eagle business-owner who’s trying to shut her down because she ditched son. It’s different.
