In real local news ... sort of, Thursday saw my final visit to the dentist for my dental implant program. I now have a marvellous set of upper gnashers that could grind rock - and with zero discomfort!

See, it WAS worth it after all.

I knew builders were paid too much.

Were.

Not much about these days. Everyone with money has left London in favour or the sticks.

Congrats on the new choppers.  Perhaps you will have a nice steak to celebrate.

This year marks my 30th year not eating meat. But I appreciate the sentiment.

Besides which, I should only eat tree bark from now on.

A nice slab of tempeh, or some spiced roasted tofu might be a good alternative.  We are having pasta with putanesca sauce and a salad for dinner tonight as it's my bday and it's easy.

Happy birthday. I've been thinking about that lately. I usually don't do poo for my birthday, but I think I know what I want to do this year, covid willing.

Well, many happy returns, six. Hope you have as much fun as humanly possible!

Thanks, all.  I did nothing special and had a very nice day, regardless.

Doing nothing special is special all by itself. Glad it was a good day.

Birthdays are always a bit of a faff for me. I try to keep them low key, but invariably I fail.

But congratulations on yours, ma'am.

That'll be on account of all the carol singing and whatnot.

I can't find the local crime blotter anymore; the search results have been poisoned by SEO naffs.

Best I can get is this annoying map that uses cute icons to mark crimes. Assault is a fist.

Specifically, when I was walking the dog, a guy and his chick were fighting, she kept telling him to go to jail, he kept calling her drunk.

I'd partially agree with that because she face planted into the street at that point and her phone went into traffic.

I took the dog in, grabbed my phone, and went back out. The duo were gone, but there were three police cruisers where they had been.

I don't carry my wallet or phone when I take the dog out. Poop bags and a mini flashlight.

Even the local newspaper just links to the shitty website.
