shopping for fruit

the K800i videophone needs bright sunlight to get a reasonably sharp macro picture of the cactus flowers

the umbrella is gradually being covered by the grass at the netrance to Merton House

I missed the pint glass for my collectio until I saw it on the downloaded photo
I drop and break them now and again so like to stock up

just now drinking cold coffee with skimmed milk from the fridge

the foriegn weeping birch is also in snaps 2 today

and my battered brown birch had catkins blowing in the wind

Zirtek - Pollen Forecast: "Tree Pollen Forecast - Today: 17/4/2007

= high = 81-200 on the map

There is risk of high birch pollen counts in many parts of England and Wales. Low to moderate counts further north.

Birch pollen is the most allergenic type of tree pollen we have in large amounts in the UK, affecting about 25% of hay fever sufferers. Oak pollen has also been recorded in parts of England and Wales. Oak pollen affects about 20% of hay fever sufferers. Risk of high plane tree pollen counts, especially in built-up areas in the South. Rain will cause pollen counts to decrease."
this was the way onto the roof to watch the bungy jump that didn't happen

oops already blogged directly from the 97 bus over 3G net from my mobile Bus stop on Snaps new paint is finished

after my first trawl through the market on a mini budget this week of about £7 or £8
I found myself at a less usual viewpoint

10 oranges for £1

diificult to catch the enrgetic market traders becasue they jump about and shout "ALL THAT BANANA FOR £1"

I had 70 pence left and said "take some off" as I passed it to him
"No he said you are a regular"
and gave me 36 small loose bananas for my money

an interesting idea
the household / office earth line has been connected to the lightning conductor
of the building near the bus stop

more milk and Radio Times

My body clock insists that I am a night taxi driver because for twenty summers I slept all day and worked all night - so I got up and breakfasted at 6:00 pm / 18.00 hours and rushed out at 7.oo pm and took the 97 bus to LIDL at Tile Cross

and the sun looked about to set as I crossed the LIDL car park
Length Of Visible Light: 14h 54m
Actual Time sunrise
6:16 AM BST and sunset 7:59 PM BST
or see BBC - Weather Centre - 5 Day Forecast in Celsius for Solihull, United Kingdom

LIDL has rather a lot of ante-freeze windscreen wash left, which shows the mild weather we are having - see Coleshill, United Kingdom Forecast : Weather Underground:
Thursday Night
Scattered Clouds. Low: 44° F. / 7° C. Wind light.
Overcast. High: 68° F. / 20° C. Wind light. and much the same is forcast for next week

all done and the shutters are down at five minutes to closing time - with 14 litres of milk, 12 cottage cheese, two packets ryebread, 12 tomatoes, a cucumber . . . and no more shopping for a week to ten days or until I run out of fruit and vegetables

next I headed for the newsagent in the parade of shops

overhead a plane has just taken off from BHX is just to the left of the upper branches of the tree and to the right about 4 feet over my head a squadron of midges (click to see them on bigger picture with about seven visible) so I did not hang about

still quite a novelty in UK with no penalty for jaywalking - yet
jaywalking - Google Image Search
a slang term from Boston in about 1911 - jay = rube = country bumpkin

this guy was hard to catch
in the end I crossed and pressed the button again

this photo made a motorist angry with me for stopping him and not crossing the road
"doot" he said
still open a fitness shop, and a betting shop,

and Bains where I got my RADIO TIMES for next week

One of my favourite bus stops with the scratched plastic which features in many of my older blogs and on the 97 bus I got the free morning newspaper METRO off the floor
