  3. Hoping my old look could entice some nice winter synoptics ,off down as da today for our big christmas shop ,got our Christmas Dec's out of the loft last night and was amazed that several Bats were over in the corner ,always thought they were under lead flashing around side chimney ,did see two very large bats back in summer which are possibly these but does anyone know that two types live close together ,the other ones are pippistrals but the ones flying around this summer were huge in comparison cheers:cold:

  4. Got man flu  so relaxing in a nice chair with the dog by my side .

    Sorting out well over 400 weather magazines and their weather logs ,so if we can't get the white stuff at least I can read about it .

    Don't really fancy a big meal but a nice Bap ,currently watching some large bumble bees on the last of the flowers ,perhaps they know something that we dont , also black birds not even touching the berries ,even some of our bats are also spending an hour on the wing ,this post done from my new Samsung tablet , rather than my usual desk top one ,brilliant new toy ,cheers all .:yahoo::yahoo::yahoo:

  5. evening gang ,not been posting much lately as busy with elderly mother in law .but been viewing the charts and reading the posts .

    looking at current charts i cant see any real wintry  cold weather ,but all this could change very quickly ,so with 180 plus ecm charts360 gfs charts to come this winter we have plenty to talk about ,heres hoping :yahoo:

  6. Ginger nuts ,my dear old mother inlaw who is now living with us 93yrs young ,loves her ginger nuts ,i,v just opened a packet of them to put in the biscuit barrel and noticed not one of them were Identical ,a bit like snowflakes just hoping that i wont see more ginger nuts than snow this year ,also got the windows open today for a good old freshen up ,extremely mild out but very overcast ,cheers .

      Hasn't your storm for this week got a name yet? Abigail (Abi(gale)) sounds so benign!

  10. Had a great time in Blackpool ,never had fish n chips but plenty of other tasty food .went on day trips and tasted some local Baps around the burnly area ,tried a Barm stuffed with bacon which was wonderfull .found the food up north very reasonable prices along with drinks in the clubs ,a great break for five days and we sent the mother inlaw down to her sons ,she,s sat watching her motor racing eating her cheese on toast and her man Hamilton is winning she,s great for a 93 yr old ,frail yes...

  11. counting down the days for our first ever visit too Blackpool next tuesday ,Fish n chips ,live shows Amusement arcades , and on cue Ecm gives us a nice low ,but cant grumble weather at the mo brilliant ,some very interesting high level clouds outside tonight ,tinting the moon , last night i counted two hummingbird hawk moths having a visit to my Larkspur ,and two Hedgehogs sniffing around ,after 7 years since we last had any in the garden its great to see them again .

  12. watched a spider yesterday set up a web ,mother nature is amazing ,today sat and watched again then all gone in a flash a bird swept down and game over .Catterpillars quite often suffer the same fate ,up the wall they go get to the top then bingo food for another creature ,had a lovely roast chicken meal tonight not a bap in sight .

  13. Fantastic day here ,at 7am this morning hardly any contrails from north american flights in when usually we have dozens ,a great science emerging in contrails for those who want to understand upper air charts .May even butter up a bap or two and enjoy with a coffee on the patio ,cheers .

      I remember Atlantic 252

      to see those planes from here, has to be clear day, with low sun angle, mainly visible from Nov to Feb

  14. Pulled up and destroyed all my brussel sprout plants today ,i took my eyes off them for a while whilst sorting out family matters and those lovely cabbage white butterflies laid their eggs all over them .

      No sprouts for Christmas? If you have to settle for supermarket sprouts my fave recipe is to trim and halve them, boil for around 5 mins, no more. Plunge into cold water to stop cooking. Then brown some strips of smoky bacon in a pan and saute the sprouts along with the bacon to warm them up again, yum!

      sounds great with bacon ,yes it will be supermarket ones so i will try the bacon and perhaps a few sausages cheers .

  15. Baps have been off the menu lately ,i,v actually lost half a stone ,tomorrow though out with the dog for a long walk and i,ll probably pack a bap and packet of crisps ,winters on its way me legs are getting cold so the fire is on low with the dog soaking up the heat ,cheers .

      Tuna pasta tonight good food for when you've been beating the local scalies :)..

  16. Thoughts now of high pressure to our north with biting easterly winds lashings of snow and the sea freezing around our coasts ,so time to stock up on Baps and tins of soup we can all live in hope gang .

      best be safe than sorry. soon be soup and bap weather =)

  18. Yes crane flys are lurking about here too .had two stuck to newly painted wall paper last week , guarantee when i go out our back garden when its dark for a couple of puffs they all rush in and dance around hall light . wonder if they will make a good Bap filler , got woken up about 3 am this morning with next doors bin being hurled against the fence ,looks like this system matured as today as progressed ,cheers .

      Going to enjoy some American BAPS today in the land of the free ????

  19. yes a real shame that the bbc are possibly moving away from the Met office ,but at the end of the day all Raw Data starts just as that for all weather providing companys ,but of course its the way these organisations relay this info to places like bbc and other media outlooks , but we will still have the Met office to view .time for a sausage bap and a coffee .

  24. We have many nutters on our roads ,car drivers motorbike riders and cyclists ,i,m a cyclist but i was amazed when out cutting our grass the other week ,a cyclist passed our house using or listening to a mobile ,just one hand on handle bars ,too many incidents to keep calling the police as with cut backs etc ,but terrible accidents result in their behavour ,you only have to see all these bunches of flowers at roadsides ,what is the answer ,on a lighter note having a tuna bap today instead of s...
