April 2016


Mr Curry is still playing for Idle!!

I’ll probably not be stopping past tea, but I have bought a ticket for the meat raffle. 

Beth, Tony, Steve. 

Marvin Gaye’s ‘Sexual Healing’ came in the juke box. They were talking about It. I said: 

‘Wouldn’t it be difficult if it did?’

For some reason folk started choking!

No cricket yet. 

I’m just like a rolling stone! If the rain keeps off I may even watch some cricket!

There were some massive storms going on in the USA today. I focused in on one in Oklahoma where there were multiple strikes at the same time. It looked to be open country, but then I noticed many odd buildings of the same kind spread along channels or tracks of an even odder kind. Turned out to be McAlester Army Ammunition Plant which is over 44 thousand acres, or about 182 km2!! It makes, stores and makes safe ammunition. The odd buildings are ‘igloos’, presumably for safe storage, and there are 2,426 of them!

Probably not a place for the nervous to be when there are dozens of lighting strikes are minute.
