Difficult choices

Friday, August 31st, 2018

Here's a relevant post to the picture for once. When I went to buy a new rose plant a few weeks ago I surprised myself at how hard it was for me to pick the right one. Most plants either had the wrong colour, the wrong shape or didn't smell the way I was looking for. However I eventually found this climbing rose bush and so far I'm really happy with it, even if it's already been assailed by aphids.

Well it took 25 years but the X-Files merchandise you've all been waiting for…

Well it took 25 years but the X-Files merchandise you've all been waiting for is finally here

Yes Mattel is bringing Mulder and Scully to their line up of #Barbie dolls to celebrate 25 years of +The X-Files I've been dreading for this to happen ever since the show took off after the first season and now the nightmare has happened and you can buy them at the link below if you fancy:

As you might guess, I'm not really a fan, though I must say the faces are quite well done even if the hair isn't, though Mulder looks like he's thinking "WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO MEEEE!!! SCULLAAAAY HELP"

The dust settles

Friday, August 24th, 2018

I was worried I wouldn't be able to do a "proper" #floralfriday picture today given that I recently upgraded my version of +Ubuntu and as a results +darktable has gone rather wonky with its UI. Luckily it still works so here you are.

I'm still hoping for some decent weather soon so I may finish snapping the flowers around the house before they all fade away for the autumn. I'm particularly hopeful for my roses, despite their being attacked by aphids already. Stay tuned.

So pocket-holes are great and all but given that they've already failed me twice…

Monday, August 20th, 2018

So pocket-holes are great and all but given that they've already failed me twice on this build, I'm just gonna glue things up first and then we'll screw things in for reinforcements.

Sadly that will mean a longer build than it really should be but I need things to be square on this.
