Morning. :)

I usually go back to bed after I've got Jeans breakfast and she has gone to work (06:45) but this morning I did not feel tired.

So, feeling bored, I dug out an old computer that is loaded with Ubuntu. The processor & memory are sadly lacking so I've taken the hard drive out and plugged it into my no 1 backup computer.

As Ubuntu has not been accessed for a long time it's updating itself as I type. I'll have some tea and toast while I'm waiting.

It's now updating to Ubuntu version 18.04, Bionic Beaver.

WOW. :lol:

I've offered my services to the village hall committee offering to help if anyone is experiencing computer problems.

I was going to lend out CDs but, if DTB is to be believed, that could make some locals suicidal. :lol: :lol:

From the BBC website.... what a job title!

"17:38
Stay inside message reinforced in Lego

The message to stay at home during the coronavirus restrictions is being reinforced - in Lego.


Over 1,000 figures have removed from a display in Legoland Discovery Centre in the city.
Lego display
Legoland Discovery Centre

The figures were removed before the centre closed its doors to the public.

Master builder Michelle Thompson said the image was being released "to support the message of how important it is to stay inside"."


So, Michelle is the name of the Master Builder. After all these years of listening to Gong I never thought...

Headed out for some essentials at 6 this morning; it was so, so quiet, just the birds singing - wonderful!

The Covid-19 is certainly having a short-term positive impact ton our environment.

Unfortunately, Tesco Taunton have now reduced their hours so it looks like I'll have to join the queue later.

Lovely frosty morning. Woke up at 5, made a cuppa and went to the workshops.

Birds were stupidly noisy. Wouldn't shut up...

No, the NHS/elderly/vulnerable slots are 9 til 10.

One thing I do every day is look at Classic cars offered on Ebay, every single one.

Not as many being offered now due (no doubt) to the travel restrictions.

If I ever did Mastermind my subject would be British classic cars 1955 - 1970.

Just seen an ad on TV for the LadyCare menopause magnet. It fits inside the panties at the front.

According to their website, the Lady Care Plus+ magnet works by rebalancing your autonomic nervous system (ANS). Your ANS is the part of your nervous system that's involuntary. ... They claim that the Lady Care magnet can also reduce stress, which will in turn reduce the symptoms of menopause.

I wonder if there will be a gentlemans version in time ? :lol:
