    โšฝ๏ธ Sadly I cannot make Burnley v Sheffield Utd this afternoon as Vickie is away, so I’ll be chewing my fingernails at home instead. As I’ve handed my Wolves ticket back to keep workload sensible, my next game is Brighton away next weekend.

    ๐Ÿ“ท๐Ÿ—บ๏ธ Grand Central - Birmingham

    Birmingham New Street has changed quite a bit. It feels like a lifetime ago that a grew up near here.

    ๐ŸŽฎ Renewed my Crossover license for ยฃ18 in the Black Friday sale.

    I think a new license is same price as a renewal till midnight, and itโ€™s a steal at that price.

    I have started using Notion for daily note taking, replacing Obsidian.

    I love Odsidian, but for changes in work environment, I would not have been looking for another tool. I’m impressed with Notion so far, it can more than fully replicate my Obsidian setup as I learn functionality.

    โšฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ“ท looks like a great day for a first home win of the season here in Burnley.


    Brun Valley, in sunshine, Burnley

    We’ve switched electricty plans to one with an overnight tariff (~29%) 12am through 7am.

    Hadn’t really appreciated how much electricity charging an EV uses v the house. If we organise ourselves properly, even working from home, I think we can transfer most of our electricty use onto that rate.

    ๐Ÿ“ท Took this photo of autumnal colours, reflecting off the Leeds Liverpool Canal. From my lunchtime walk today.

    If you click on a datapoint in Tinylytics, it now filters direct to the selection.

    Have you been making magic @vincent, or did it always do this (methinks the former)?


    ๐Ÿš‚I’m adding a new feed/section to my feeds page. Struggling to believe that it has taken me 15 years to discover Railcam, which provides a daily itinerary of interesting trains passing their camera network.

    Back on my Wattbike after several weeks away with work Stress and then a gastric issue.

    Arsenal 3 Burnley 1

    Notably the pie had the first structural failure of the season, and a fork was needed. Iโ€™m blaming that on the pointless herb inclusions in the pretentious pastry. Iโ€™d pass.

    Apparently I was quite grumpy on the way home last night!

    โšฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ“ป Discovered the From the Beehole End podcast, which Iโ€™ve been listening to all the way South.

    Think this is probably my favourite BurnleyFC podcast. Good structured discussion, without unnecessary polish.

    ๐Ÿš๐Ÿ“ท So it begins. Walking through Burnley under a crescent moon, to catch the coach to London for Arsenal v Burnley later today.

    The coach for Arsenal v Burnley departs tomorrow at 06:20. Win, lose or draw its is going to be a long day either way.


    Reservioir Levels - STW

    Stumbled across this fascinating data from Severn Trent, which is published weekly and shows the water capacity and fill of each of their reservoir groups. Shows that water levels have recovered well from some very critical levels last year.

    I wrote a quick list of all of the RSS Feeds I’m currently reading.

    Can you suggest any other good reads that will not overwhelm my reader with volume of articles?

    ๐Ÿง—๐Ÿ“ท Bouldering at Boulder UK, Walton Summit.

    Destressing towards the end of one very stressful journey. A couple of weeks off now, gearing up to go again.

    ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ“ท Leo & Stevie hugging. It has been a journey at times with these two young podenco boys, one Andaluz, the other retriever X - but they are beginning to bond now.

    ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ“ท Here’s a rare photo of me with three of our canine children together above Derwent Water near Keswick. From Left to Right, Caoimhe, Mr Leo, Stevie. I’m the one at the back in blue.

    โšฝ๏ธ Have not seen it yet, but if it takes 4 minutes to decide onside or off, then itโ€™s a goal. Also no VAR check on a potential offside on the line.

    Burnley are not getting the rub of the green with VAR. Why? Embarrassing.

    โšฝ๏ธ Feels strange listening to Bournemouth v Burnley on Clarets+. First game Iโ€™ve not made this season, that Iโ€™ve not been able to watch.

    ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ—บ๏ธ๐Ÿ“ท Here is Stevie, looking super excited about a long walk around Keswick today.
