They do in the north-east. Less of a water problem there than other parts of the country.

Looking forward to my shower later today .
Shower radio? I can understand a bath radio. Baths are for relaxing in. But shower? I'm in and out in about 5 minutes. Prolly a holdover from my military days, but I lather up, scrub with either a lufa or a Japanese wash cloth (a lufa is softer...) rinse off and out. Add in an extra 2 minutes if I need to shave my neck. I wouldn't have time to let the radio tubes warm up!

Ah, but you don't do a full shave, do you? I'm in there for quarter of an hour, then another quarter of an hour dressing and primping, so half an hour for me is a long time with no music/news. Also I can use it in the bathroom, where I may well soak for an hour while I read. And I'm taking more baths at the moment to soothe my sore leg and back .

Nope, I had to look it up also. Shower radios were a really big gift item a few years ago along with a non-fog shower mirror. I use to blast the radio while getting ready in the morning.

Right now, I am going in and out doing little bits of clean up and watering in the back yard. It is already too hot to be out there for very long, even with shade.

No full shave. Not since the day I mustered out of the Military. I just keep my neck clean, a two minute process in the shower. No need for combing hair either as I use an electric clipper to chop down everything that baldness misses. Dressing is almost as fast, especially here; T-shirt and shorts are the daily uniform. The only time I'm in the bathroom for any length of time is to read...

No, I had to look it up too. I wonder if it will become the preferred method of broadcasting?

It has finally cooled down a bit so today it cleaning day. However, since it's only just past 8 am and the neighbours probably wouldn't appreciate me vacuuming this early I'll wait until 10 am or so (all the other cleaning I already did). Until then I'm doing some maintenance on my ebook library, downloading description and cover for books that haven't them.

That is/was the intention, though the take-up has not been as successful as was first hoped. It was going to allow for the switching off of the analogue transmitters in the UK by 2015, but this is now under question. Part of the problem is that the reception is not always as great as was first promised, and you need a proper aerial to get it to work. Some of the features are great and worth having (if you can accept the shortcomings) - scrolling display of the current programme/song, access to many more stations, and with certain sets you can pause and rewind (Tivo-like).

Today I took my art supplies with me to my friends' place to see how dirty they were. My art bin was open on my desk during the fire. It seems that in those 2 months it has un-stunk itself. Even my sketchbook, which has a bit of discolouring on the outside doesn't smell!

I'll still give the artbin and the contents a good clean but I'm very happy my things don't smell. To celebrate I'm making a wishlist on DickBlick.com and I'm going to ask how much shipping to the Netherlands will cost.

Considering doing art course in drawing. To really get into drawing again and a refresh course for what I was once taught. Either at the art centre or an online/mail course. I'm tempted to go for the latter, since I can do it in my own time instead of a set time each week and you get a bunch of supplies.

Say... I just planted an 18" tray with oats so Felicity can have some 'lawn' to lie on (or eat.) Would you consider a regular weekly after-school job of mowing her lawn?

Scheduled my classes for the fall. One of the classes I really wanted was full... not going to give up though. Will check the schedule regularly just in case someone drops it.

BTW, does anyone know what "...and # hours/week to be arranged" means in the context of a school schedule?

It usually means that the contact hours (classroom hours) are flexible - allowing students to work independently outside the classroom - usually used for seminars or classes that assign projects, or where instructors monitor rather than actively lecture.

Listening to Ed Byrne's Different Class show, which is on tv, whilst surfing MR. I think I have to search out more of his shows because I find him rather funny.
