This morning I finished dressing the batons attached to the chipboard shelves that will go in the garage. So, this afternoon I put undercoat paint on the wood of these batons ready for an eggshell final paint to match the white melamine. They are then ready to go onto the brackets after the final coat of paint (if I am lucky – dampness in the garage may slow drying – I may get the final coat on tonight). Yes! that worked out well, so the shelves are ready to go up on the brackets tomorrow morning.
I had two CDs delivered this morning – the first CDs I have bought in a long while as I mostly download music these days – one is Avalon, which was missing from my Roxy Music collection, the other was a new album by Suzanne Vega, Tales from the Realm of the Queen of Pentacles. the first will not be included in my music blog as I have passed “A” some time ago. The second will still get a review when I get to “T”.
Watched the Barcelona/Manchester City match tonight on the TV, but I can’t say I really enjoyed the match. I am not a lover of how Barcelona play (too many horizontal passes for me) and much prefer watching highlights of their play rather than a full match. However, I clapped myself on the back when, at the start of the game, i picked the weak link as being Demichelis (I expected Lescott) and i was right, his clearance kicking was woeful and then he dived in from behind for the penalty and red card. i doubt man City will get through now, in fact I predict a 4-0 aggregate score.
News of the day, for me, after mentioning the NHS database the other day, is that the implementation has been delayed by 6 months – maybe they will take on board the public’s view (haha!). As long as there is any likelihood of the data being shared I don’t think the database should be allowed. I have opted out, but too many people are unaware of the need to do so and the process is too complicated. There needs to be a much more detailed discussion of the details of what is proposed, what information will be transferred and how that data can be checked by the individuals involved. Things don’t sound good in Kiev and an arrest in the case of the Alps murder are the other main items of news.
