    The Good Morning Thread 5th Apr 14 at 6:17 AM
    Well, we've got a goodnight thread so let's have a good morning one as well.

    Good morning everybody
    Me and the dog have had our morning constitutional and shortly I shall be venturing forth to the big Tesco to do my fortnightly shop. When I get home I've got 3 hours work related admin and paperwork to do

    The weather here is a bit nippy but at least there's no fog.

    Morning all.

    Wow, just had a hiccup with broadband as our new fibre kicked in. Just run a speed test and it's twice as fast for downloads and 60 times as fast for uploads. Not that we upload anything other than sending a few photos.

    Wasps are on the decline apparently, and while that might be good in the short term it's not great for the bigger picture

    I've got one eye on Rip-off Britain.

    Have the presenters been dared to wear the most ridiculous clothes they can find, especially jackets?

    (I even just then touched wood in case even a fictitious example brings the nemesis crashing down on my head!)

    But then trees are my friend.

    Yes, another disaster this morning. Not only did Bailie get access to a bin and it's contents but that annoying twit with his dog biscuits was about again.
