Yes.  I read an article about it and basically learned that there was nothing new.

It's hot here and the air conditioner needs a new sensor so we have to rely on ceiling fans.  Hopefully the hornets and lizards will leave us alone.  Island life is challenging when things are always breaking and nobody really offers warranties.  We will go home in another week, so we had the fun experience of a trip to the Caribbean to work cleaning up a mess that never should have happened.  Fun times.  Looking forward to some island barbeque for dinner, though, so things are looking up!

ATM not a happy work force where I work
Seems only the workers ( not the office wallers) are a week short of wages this month and to add to the injury I have had money taken out for a pension I withdrew from last year.
This is the second time this has happened and it was hell to get my monies back last time but its OK HR are  doing their best  >:( >:(

Clapham in the news for not very nice reasons:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-68198227

The attack that happened is a short walk from where I live and an even shorter walk from where Sarah Everard was taken:

I'm thinking of moving south to live among the pixies.

That's just awful.  We are also sick of the local crime sprees and are regretfully having to move away because of it.

The assailant is still at large and the police are saying that they think that either he's being helped, or he has come to harm. I know which I'd prefer to be the case. You know the youngest child he attacked was only 3.

The house next door to me is up for sale - bargain at £500,000.
Include a Jag ???
Then it would be £600,000.

I'd have thought a discount would have been more appropriate.

+1 for "come to harm"

That probably is the discount.  ;D

It's sunny here.  We are enjoying a break from lots and lots of rain.  It's in the low 50's but will warm up to the upper 60's later this afternoon.

Number one son appeared last night, would state a surprise but Mrs goldie forgot he was coming down from up north. He is on standby for Bosnia again (unsure if needed but 🤷‍♂️)
 and daughter has told us she has an interview to work in Disney USA 😕😕, that was a shock. Mrs Goldie is going with her a week Monday, near Gillingham for a 15 min interview.
Soon to be just myself and the better half

Did you do the hard drive drop?

I got lucky on the PC I got at goodwill, it had no COA sticker, but it did have a windows license tied to it's UEFI, so when I slotted in a blank SSD and a USB stick with windows 10, it installed without hiccups.

If this talk is overly technical, no worries, I'm just a nosy poo.

Is that the Florida Gillingham, or the California one?

Not privy to too much information, just bare the  bones
