The delights of Weston Super Mare

Some have unkindly called it Weston Supermarket which actually is not too far from the truth. We rose early this morning and departed about nine o'clock  for a journey that was supposed to take one hour 17 minutes according to my GPS.  This equipment is remarkably and annoyingly successful in predicting arrival time because it has lots of data to go on than is apparent at first.

Bed time – a movable feast? – Storm – garden safety

Wednesday 19 October 1664 ... To supper and to bed, my wife coming in by and by, which though I know there was no hurt in it; I do not like... So who feels sleepy at the same time of the evening for the same reasons? Our circadian rhythms are seldom the same. I know of couples who retreat into separate beds or even in different rooms so they can get a good night's sleep. It does not mean that...
