0834/2nd June 2023 Poor air quality is not something we normally worry about here but an alert was issued on Wednsday and today the air looks decidedly smokey. Presumably this is from wildfires. They have seem to have become the norm which I find quite disturbing. So many of these fires are caused by humans, … Continue reading Telling tails?
0745/6th May 2023 In principle, I am not a fan of mist. Even with the advantages of modern technology, I like the pilot of any aeroplane I happen to be on, to be able to see where they are going.

Last year, at this time, it was very seasonal. My Christmas tree looked so good. Maybe I'm daft, but I love snow. This … Continue reading Too warm!
In the clouds

The sheep from above has morphed. Now I see the pie-man, as in Simple Simon met the pie-man, going to the fair.... and … Continue reading In the clouds
This sky was something of a surprise this morning. I didn't expect to see crisscrossed contrails again any time soon. Is this progress? Who knows. There is a definite sense of "every man for himself". So, I plan to be careful and see what develops. Not much else I can do. ************ You know those … Continue reading Aviators
