Full Marks for paying attention

These pair are alive and kicking - so far anyway! The Dusters are on my Administrator's desk, causing no end of trouble. Apparently, it's Unreasonable to keep dead peeps in an admin office.

WTF? They're the most lively pair in there!

That's harsh

Meh (homemade) Larsen is currently doing service on a farm nearby, on account of how they have a "worser" problem and I've been eating their Chantrelles these last 10 years (very nice with a rare fillet and a bottle of Ch. Lagrange 1990)

BTW, I think that jays may be protected....

EDIT: (old boating gadge #2 is a primo magpie trapper and taught me all I know, so there's a coincidence...)

I read somewhere that the Azores high has got its self wedged much further south than normal, is this why we had such a cold winter ? or is it a system that affects only summer weather?

Not bad for a steam engine.
This is what powers the Toyota Pious of course and all the other non-recyclable smug-mobiles.

Here I set it for your area

It got yesterday fairly much bang on. Check out the wave and current maps in the Advanced Map tab.
