Unless he meant he got the message when he tried to take up money and failed... (automated teller machine) ;-)

Outside of our hearing range, herrings communicate effervescently. Via their rear end apertures. It's probably not that important though.

edit for an it-occurred-to-me: Would we have problems equating an intelligent species as intelligent, if it also communicated like that? I'd like to think I'd try to. Translators might be useful - but I think that's when I'd be at most risk of losing my manners, unfortunately.

Early drop today, four minutes to one. And the feeder/scheduler had been playing up all morning - prepare for a long, cold, one while they investigate.

About the same across the pond. Just a few degrees above 0°C here ATM.

It's just on 0C here, promising us a slight thaw over the next couple of days, well maybe.

Quite chilly up North, too, but we've learned how to deal with that.


First winter with the new car. It has a snazzy aluminium gear knob - which is bloody freezing to the touch after it's been standing out all night. So I wear heavy driving gloves, and they catch on the steering wheel radio controls and change the station without me noticing... Aargh.

They've coated the windscreen with something odd, too, The frost turns into solid almost-but-not-quite-clear ice, which is much harder to scrape off. At least it's got a good demister on the inside.

...heated windscreen that's what you want, heated windscreen. This morning thirty seconds after engine start at -6C the ice was melting on the windscreen :-)
The heater was still blowing cold, but the pre-heater soon took care of that - feeling even smugger.

There were plenty of "clods" driving with only small cleared slot to see through - tip, if you are going to do that make sure you don't run into a Police motorbike as doing so may be injurious to one's bank balance. and one's driving license.

Mine has a proper one-touch button which turns the blower on without delving through the touch-screen menu system and messing with your air-conditioning setting. That's probably fan speed 8, or perhaps 11: I don't know if has any electric heating, or just gets first dibs at whatever's flowing out towards the radiator, but it seems to work pretty well.

I just woke up from a dream I was down in South America somewhere, wandering around a really spooky old neighborhood with apartment buildings that looked like they were abandoned, but I could sense people watching me, and when I got to a street corner, Elaine(from Seinfeld) was waiting there on a bike for two, and she told me to hop on, and she rang the bell, and away we peddled.

I'm glad you did :) I might have thought it was something to do with the fish otherwise...

It is lovely to see everyone :)
