  • Tue Nov 02 14:22 Butcher S. presses a pretty cloth bag containing a rather good bottle of crème de cassis into my hand: "Put it into wine & get pissed after your wife goes to bed." Not quite.
  • Tue Nov 02 14:26 So the developer refused 8K from the school for the undevelopable cricket pitch & instead sold it for a quid to an unpleasant man, who failed to develop it into a home for dogs or for himself, but won't sell or let local residents take down the fences he put up. Dog in a manger.
  • Tue Nov 02 14:30 Curious that there aren't more translations (in or out of print) of Ernst Wiechert, in many ways better than Hans Fallada.

  • Mon Nov 08 19:58 Don't bottle it up. Swing-pushing @ Meanwood playground & talking randomly to toddler about food: "One thing about Spain I miss is head cheese (queso de cabeza)." Man @ next swing: "I make head cheese! I've got a few pigs in a wood & it's one of my favourite products!" Solved.

Bizarrely, Twitter data downloads don't include others' comments on your tweets, or tweets on which you comment, e.g.:

/ I say something
// Someone replies
/// I reply to them
... and so it's impossible to show tweet trees involving third parties correctly.
