Patting our dog Toby who is sleeping by my feet between my wife and I. He's old and unwell with dementia, vision & hearing loss as well as stomach problems. We've made the decision to have him put to sleep tomorrow afternoon and we're heartbroken.

Feeling the pain.. It's one of the hardest decisions to have to make... :(

Been there, done that, and it's an awful decision.

For the best though. We'd all like a quiet end.

We have several portable DAB 'garden' radios for which we juggle charging and batteries.

Today the battery one was sounding like it was about to give up so I shrewdly switched on the USB one, and now both are playing perfectly. It's as if the battery radio isn't prepared to give in to its rival.

Being horrified at the result of putting a picture of myself through one of those gender swap photo filter things.

Someone I know on Facebook posted a pic of Captain Kirk done that way. Looked amazing.

Haven't done that myself. Do you have to indicate your gender from the start? I'd tell it I was the opposite one to start with and see where it went.

Nope. You just put a pic in and press whichever gender you want it to accentuate. (Dunno if accentuate is the right word, but you know what I mean, I hope)

Where may I find this intriguing process?

Misreading the title of the Old School Cool thread as Old School Cook...

Actually, that sounds like a decent thread itself....

I was shocked when I misread the name of the children's TV programme Big Cook Little Cook in the telly paper once...

While waiting for brunch to be served* I looked on Flightradar and spotted the Beluga heading for Hawarden Airport, on an unusual flight path and possibly within sight of my garden!

Of course I rushed outside and spotted it, and saw it change direction for the airport. Took a photo in which the plane looks like a distant gnat.

(Not a Gnat, that would have gone too fast.)

Made my day, that'as!

*Techy is slaving over a hot stove, bless'im!

While I was posting the above, while listening to Radio 4, Techy's phone was beside me on the sofa. It interrupted the programme to state exactly when the eighteenth century began and ended. Like mansplaining, only phonesplaining.

Washing the bedding after last night's ridiculous humidity.

I have photographic evidence of how much I sweated last night, if anyone's stomach is feeling strong. Let's just say there was a residue.

Sweat. Yeah, it was sweat. Sweat.

Watching aircraft over Wales on flightradar.
The Red Arrows are flying all over North and North and South Wales and a Charlie Hammonds helicopter has just taken off near Caernarvon.

Didn't realise photographic evidence was obligatory.

Watching Batman Begins yet again. Tumbler - best Batmobile ever (although respect to the original Adam West one).
Christain Bale best Batman.
It's a pity they couldn't for some reason keep on Katie Holmes as Rachel Dawes for The Dark Knight. Maggie Gyllenhaal was nowhere near as good. But Heath Ledger was absolutely brilliant as the Joker.
