    Nice to see that Marco and Del are going out for a nosebag tomorrow. Maybe he'll stop mithering about vaccinations and pecking our heads about it, for a while at least...

    In these strange times, I have increasingly been listening to BBC Radio 4.

    Absolute cracker of a Radio show today. Open Country at 15.00 Hours.

    Eilean Shona on the Western Coast of Scotland. Have you ever seen a lovelier place?

    Better than the Scillies IMO. Water is flippin' freezing but the Scillies are cold too. So no loss there.
