From floods to freezing in a couple of days. It was really cold last night. So cold I was up for a tiddle at just the back of midnight. So chilly was it that I had trouble finding anything to tiddle out of. After a few minutes of frantic searching and mission accomplished I went back to bed only to find that the dogs had pinched the warm bit. Life in the camper can be a trial at times.
I couldn’t get warm again so got dressed, switched the heating on, had a brew and set the camera to manual. Yesterday morning I noticed we had a full moon so decided to wrap up and brave the elements for a shot of it. I no longer own a long lens so gone are the composite shots of yore.
I swung the camera through a hundred and eighty degrees and took a picture of Venus. Back in the dark ages when navigation by sextant was the only way to find ones way around I used to like the Sun, Moon, Venus and Jupiter. They are difficult to mistake for anything else and one can usually see the horizon.
We have had an interesting week in the UK. A new Bank of England Governor has been appointed. He’s from Canada, like the geese but hopefully he’ll be a bit brighter and not such a nuisance.
The Leveson report has been published. It was commissioned by Dithery Dave some sixteen months ago to deliberate, collect evidence and advise on controlling the media. Six million pounds it has cost so far and after promising to implement it unless it proved completely bonkers Dithery has decided not to endorse it. This despite him praising it’s accuracy and thoroughness. We are now to have a draft bill and no doubt a vote in 2030. I suggest we have an inquiry into the judicial report, into Parliament and into Dithery. When one can’t decide have an inquiry…..works fine in most circumstances but I wonder how long it takes him to order a meal in a restaurant?
Have a great weekend and keep warm.
