    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.

    Good Morning everyone, cold start here but sunny. I think today all the snow will finally melt. Yesterday there were still a few large lumps of it along the roadside.
    I shot a vein in my neck and coughed up a Quaalude.

    OT but do you use a tracking device on your runs, indesisiv? I'm looking for something fairly cheap but reliable for walks not runs.

    This also pushes to strava for the social side.

    I hope your date happens, and goes well. I can't offer you any tips as all my dating was decades ago, and at her instigation.

    We'll see on the date front, it may not happen but will be nice if it does.
