How wet it is!

Mutterings continued.

Storm fronts passing over Perth have dumped a fair bit of rain. The BOM chart showed green bits!

I've been in meetings all day. The first started at 9am and lasted until we got kicked out of the board room at 12.15. I didn't have far to go as I was a part of the second meeting group that kicked me out. That meeting lasted until 2.30pm. I then got some lunch on the way back to my office. It rained and was cold and windy but I arrived in one piece and my box of wedges didn't get too soggy.

I rang Westnet about my modem and it appears that their techs have worked more quickly than the postal system. It should arrive next Tuesday.

From The Northerner:

"Just when you thought it was safe to go for a walk in the Dales again,
the naked rambler, who runs the risk of nasty injuries from nettles
and thistles, is back.

The Northern Echo explains that Stephen Gough, 46, is attempting once
more to walk the 874 miles from Land's End to John O'Groats with his
kit off and accompanied this time by his girlfriend Melanie Roberts,
33, and their friend, Jeffrey Woodhouse, 42.

All three were arrested in Gargrave, North Yorkshire, on Monday
morning - presumably the sheep were outraged - but Mr Gough refused
to put his togs on when he was due to leave the cells for court in

The justices, possibly worried by how much indecency the dock might
conceal, adjourned the case until September 6 and bailed Mr Gough.
"But upon his release, Mr Gough, from Eastleigh, near Southampton,
walked into the court lobby wearing only his boots and a rucksack -
and was re-arrested," continues the Echo. "Meanwhile, Bournemouth
hairdresser Ms Roberts was posing topless outside for a television
crew. She covered up when officers from North Yorkshire police

"When [Mr Gough] heard what had happened in the court, he dropped his
shorts as the police van containing his friend drove past. He too was
arrested for a second time."

You couldn't make it up."
