Wet, with wind.

Mutterings continued.



Make your own Einie pic. This is mine.

It's been a wild and woolly day. Woke up to the sound of thunder (how far off I sat and wondered) and couldn't work out what the noise was. Mid morning, the rain came in horizontally. Sure made Temara, one of the orangs, move. She'd been sitting on the top of her tower with all her worldly possessions (sacks, branches, leaves, food) and was nearly blown off.

Today's cool word: nudiustertian (nu-di-uhs-TUR-shuhn) adjective
Of or relating to the day before yesterday.

[From Latin nudius tertius, literally, today is the third day.]

So there you go.

Tonight's Time Team ep had the chaps and chappettes looking for a henge and a crannog in the north of Scotland. Lovely place. One of the archeologists was from this place. I've been there.

I detect quite a bit of plagiarism here. Text copied and pasted from Anu Garg's "A Word a Day"... a whole feature item from New Scientist... all without attribution.

What's the point of blogging if you can't write your own material?

You're right about the the word of the day - apologies to Anu.

The New Scientist article was atributed; for some reason the text turned black and couldn't be seen clearly against the dark blue background. I've been playing with template - when the post was written, the BG was a lighter colour and the black text could be seen.
