The local paper reports that Mt Baker had 100″ of snow this WEEK.
Most of which fell on us as rain! (Do remember 12″ snow 1″ of rain though!)
We are hideously waterlogged and one mustn’t stand still or one gets mould, no wonder half the population appears to be in Arizona, Mexico or Hawaii. After getting pneumonia in Wales last autumn I ain’t going anywhere soon, thank God for central heating and a good roof.
How is the weather elsewhere? It is definitely a wetter winter than usual here, doesn’t bloody stop, worse than Wales and that’s going some!
Yes, it’s Boris the Bridge Builder. Hello Theresa, hello Emmanuel, hello Donald! He’s loved you all along – you just couldn’t see it, could you? I suppose it’s better than building walls – unless it’s Churchillian and just for fun.
The new look for the Chariot is finished.
Almost everything is the same as it was on the older Chariot, but there are a few extras –

Gold is very yesteryear, innit? Silence – which is undoubtedly golden – has no place here and speech is silvern. Hence this flattering new portrait which shows me (l) in the limelight and Backside in the shade, just as it should be.
Any road up, we hope you like our new livery – although once again, Backside’s actual words do not bear repetiton. Goodness knows what’s eating him this time.
Why is it that I don’t have the right to edit posts in threads that I’ve started ? The edit link is there but apparently I don’t have the right to actually edit stuff. Does this just apply to me or is it general ?
This email arrived courtesy of one of my old training ship pals under the heading ‘No Words Needed’ .
It seems to be true. She’s running (or perhaps sitting) in 2020. Pause for thought. Okay. Ron did it. Don did it. She can’t be less palatable than Billary, can she? As embarrassing as Trump? Or maybe by 2020 an AI robot will be a safer choice? Hmm.
The ANC in South Africa recently held party elections for new leadership. I guess the emphasis was on party.
