    Unfortunately the camera on my tablet just died about 20 mins in. I could see and hear everyone, and they could hear me, but they were all spared having to see me.
    Heh y'all! That diminished G sharp was just outstandin'!!! 😉

    The thought of seeing Yes in just a few hours has had me smiling all afternoon!

    I've booked a number of annual leave days so I can go to the Globe to see The Tempest, Julius Caesar and Henry VIII between the end of July and early September.
    Henry VIII isn't done very often. I've seen the BBC Shakespeare version on DVD a few years ago. It's co-authored by Will S and John Fletcher. Should be fun. As standing tickets in the Yard at the Globe Theatre are only 5GBP, it's not going to break the bank!

And I've been bumped up a point on the paygrade, a whole extra 100 GBP a year already! All is well.
    Brilliant!

    Well yesterday I was able to fix the AC in my sons car. Issue was a bad switch that can not longer be had so I bypassed it and now it works. Nice and cold.

    I've had to shepherd four bees 🐝🐝🐝🐝 out of my flat over the weekend. All sent on their way safely. Three yesterday, one today. They have probably been quite active during the week with the higher temperatures, and then got caught out by yesterday's rain and became confused. I can understand that.

    Not us. A Sri Lankan Tamil refugee family with 2 Aussie-born children who were treated cruelly by the former Tory government over their visa. But you change the government, you change the country. Their plight was championed by their local community that never gave up to have them back home and safe.

    My wife is Tamil Nadu via Fiji so looks very similar. The smallest child nearly died from lack of medical care at the detention facility at Christmas Island in the middle of the Indian Ocean. Sepsis. Flown back to Perth for treatment. Now all back in Biloela, Queensland. To resume their lives contributin' to the community for the rest of their lives. Immigrants realise what a lucky country Australia is.

    Continues to make me smile.

    Listening to An Evening of Yes Music Plus while driving to work made me smile this morning.

    Listening to the 5th day of the second test match at Trent Bridge, Nottingham, between England and New Zealand. Can't wait to see the highlights on BBC2 later! Fantastic partnership by Bairstow and Stokes!
