A Compliment

When I shopped at Grape Tree today the lady serving me said I was always their best dressed customer. To return the compliment, I strongly recommend Graoe Tree's yoghurt coated raisins.

Selective Safety

When Parliament met yesterday hardly any Conservative MPs wore face masks. Many people consider that, with covid-19 deaths at only about 90 per day we can afford to relax safety measures. However 90 deaths per day is about 32 000 per year, much greater than the number deaths in road accidents, of which there are only about 2000 per year. Does the Goverment plan to relax road safety rules by permitting drunken driving and making the wearing of seat belts optional?

Home Grown Tomatoes

Today I gathered my first barch of this year's tomatoes. There are many more on their way so I hope they'll last for a couple of months at least.

Even CoolerShopping

A few days ago I noted how few opportunities I've had this year to wear my Summer clothes. Today I wore light overcoat when I went to the shops and returned my Summer hat to its Winter quarters.

Cool Summer

Usually there is a period of several weeks in the Summer when I wear my white Summer suit and white hat when I go shopping. This year I've only worn those garemnts for four or five days. I don't complain. My prefered temperature is in the low 20s Celcius, and my tomatoes have started to ripen around the usual time.
