Annette: Nope, the NBC News story about the Navy war ships in your region is not a hoax. The Navy top brass admit that these "incursions" by highly advanced aircraft and drones are happening. The military reports indicate that the technology far surpasses our own. Navy officials and some of our top fighter pilots testified before the U.S. Senate last year about the incursions.
The U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee has directed that the military and the U.S. Director of Intelligence deliver a full report by June 25, 2021. The report will address the advanced technology and possible sources, including foreign adversaries, who may have developed it. The impending report is why NBC News published the article I posted. Admiral Michael Gilday, who is quoted in the article, is the U.S. Chief of Naval Operations. Our very unprofessional news media can't cover this issue without making silly UFO jokes, but the incidents are actually very serious and a bewildering national security threat.
Max temp 31 C today. In hopes that it is the last of summer, today I washed the odd blanket & rug used since, er, whenever. Already dry; they feel so soft.
I deposited a bag of books at nearby charity bookshop. I have another bagful but they don’t like getting too many at a time. I’ve spent the last year reading & culling my accumulation (more reading than culling, alas).
Just a thought

Reading the above - I sound so saintly. Sorry about that. I'm not a hoarder of things but have many faults, the chief one is turning a blind eye to garden jobs. Pressure washing the slabs is my most hated job. I didn't do it last year and they look very dark and horrible. I could go on but then I would start to worry about things !

Good day yesterday. First of all I had a wee win on Ernie 5x £25. there was a knock at the door in the afternoon and a lady had delivered an unexpected bouquet of flowers. It was from a friend who used to do the food bank with me. She said that for lent she likes to do things for people and my name came to her mind. She knows that apart from covid there has been a particularly devastating family issue to deal with so she decided to send me some flowers. How lovely is that. Oh took a pic so she could see what she had sent me.
