I saw a short video of a church belltower being swallowed by the lava flow. A comment appealed to me – “Is this the time when we are supposed to throw politicians into volcanos to appease the gods?” Now that’s an idea.

AQ: I LOVE the idea of throwing politicians into the volcano to appease the gods, starting with the Orange Menace, though it might spit him out again. :-)) Also had to smile at the 'visitors' sayings. I was once tempted to buy a doormat that said "Oh no, not you again," but thought that just a little beyond the pale.
OG: Assume you chose Thursdays for delivery? :-) Good that J is feeling more positive about his options in spite of not getting the job. We've all been there (though I can't remember being so positive after being rejected). :-) Yes, did almost nothing yesterday; quite a change for me. I did clean out the fridge which was overflowing with mysterious packages of questionable leftovers, etc., so now have my own shopping list.
PatO: People who can't behave should be thrown out of any venue, be it golf, soccer and especially tennis, where there's always some idiot who has to shout after the umpire as asked for quiet. Grrrr.
OG -- We've been describing our experience and meal to others. Some of our friends here are still shielding as they have various ailments and chronic illnesses, and dare not go out in the sense of having a meal in a crowded place. Hope you can get things fixed -- you seem to have had trouble trying to get these various workmen to come. We've been waiting about 4 months to get a joiner to even look at our kitchen, where I'd like new worktops putting in. We asked several for quotes, and out of them all, only two er - - sort of promised to come "sometime". Which of course, they haven't.
Glad that J did well at the interview. It's all good experience even if you don't come out with a job.
We've been out for shopping and had a pleasant walk along the front again, as the sun came out mid morning after a VERY wet night.
Temp reached 24 C again today but overcast so no sunbaking (arms & legs) on back verandah. After all the trouble OH went to washing down the chair covered in black grime, I’ve only used it twice but now draped it with an old sheet. Black grime? That’s what we breathe every day – dust, sticky pollen, exhaust fumes, rubber, airplane fuel – the disadvantages of suburban living.
Just a thought
