Whilst working on this shot, I spied a tiny piece of cream cracker vanish into the keyboard; it did not reappear on shaking said board, so I expect I'll have to resort to the vacuum. Or do nothing, and hope it reciprocates, which would seem fair. Anyway:

Rob,

Was it a good cream cracker?

I'll have to find it again first before I can tell you. It might be good or it might not. I'm leaving it be, in the hope it doesn't have any effect, just like I hope they do with Brexit.

I suddenly stopped drinking tea three days ago because my usual dose of two or three mugs three times a day appears to be giving me a racing chest. It could perhaps be the coffee, but that's decaffed, and at the most, I have two or so cups a day if eating out or just having a walk, but I do know the cardios said just one. I think they meant normal, full-frontal coffee. At home now, I simply drink hot water.

On the other hand, perhaps it's just LuLa getting on my nerves a bit these days, what with all the agro and bile that flows like a tide. I think politics was more restful a topic than street with its sundry aberrations and pride issues. But what are you gonna do?

You're not gonna be able to do anything, Peter. People who paint, draw, photograph, write poetry, write novels, etc., etc., etc, are passionate people. The passion always comes through one way or another. Ya gotta live with it.

Weekend television is even worse than the offerings during the working (joke) week: sport everywhere!

Re. cream crackers, the 13th Doctor (Who) likes Custard Creams. (#11 was into Jammie Dodgers…strawberry, I think.)  ;D  When I was little, English/Scots biscuits & crackers were staple foods. No wonder I had so many cavities!

The only TV I watch, aside from Doctor Who and baseball (in season), comes from ad-free streaming sources. And YouTube in particular requires persistent curation to avoid the firehose of soul-sucking "you liked that, so here's a more extreme & histrionic version of it!" crapola generated by its algorithms.

I look forward to Fridays at 7p.m. local time, when I put on France24 on the iPad and watch their news, followed by the weekly discussion with, amongst others, Christopher Dickie of the Daily Beast. Usually quite clever stuff... I no longer watch tv dramas other than a bunch of old series on the iPad, and having just completed the entire House lot, I'm kinda floating in my own world of fantasy, imagining new symptoms to go with my real problems. When you get to a certain age you no longer really care much; it becomes a game with yourself... of course, a big lottery win would upset that at once.

Found a new place for Italian food: this one is for taking out, and today I treated myself to their gnocchi. Next time, I'll get it from them uncooked, and make my own sauce. I was toying with the idea of buying a microwave, but decided against it: I think my late wife would not approve at all. She made wonderful gnocchi; of course, my mother taught her. And then relaxed, and let her make it ever after.

If this place lasts, and my energy too, it could dent my French guy's restaurant attendance, but hey, if he decides to close for three months of winter...

Anyway:

Unfortunately, as I only get to enjoy a single glass per day, definitely a case of gnocchi with port!

We do have ports, but many more small wharves, jetties and shanties. Wife and I drove out for coffee this morning and stopped here for a couple of minutes.

This was taken from a window near a porthole.  :)  You may've seen it before.

If you can frame it, then it must be art, no?

Not in this case: it's using all the wrong thirds.
