Good morning Mike (even is it's heading to late morning) and good afternoon/evening Magenta and Monday.

Weather here has stopped raining (was all day and quite heavy yesterday), but still very dull. Looks like no wind so I expect it will be dull all day.

Still, I will walk the dogs today, which I didn't do yesterday then settle in with the Sunday broadsheets and a coffee.


It's good to be back amongst friends and colleagues

Good morning cafe dudes and dudettes :-)

Hi Mike, hope you get to relax soon.

Yesterday when I came home from school there was a present under my pillow...

the world's greatest fruit bat had sneakily bought me the complete set of the world's greatest markers Copic.

These markers are preferred by illustrators and designers everywhere. They are refillable, alcohol-based markers...and I am sure I will draw better pictures with them :-)

I've got 3 fire extinguishers but I hope I never have to use them.

I like the german standard fire emergency procedure card:

2. evacuate
3. try to extinguish fire

how am I supposed to do that, once I've left the premises?

You run back in with one of those big fat fire hoses that are usually outside of buildings :)

Yes, but emergency procedure declare I have to wait for the firecrew to proclaim it safe to go back :D

The fires I've started only required a blanket. (or just let the ethanol burn, if it hasn't set the petri dish on fire as well...)

Will that blend with ammonium nitrate and diesel?

The simple truth is that the management of buildings is done by people who are bound by their insurance policy.

1. Most people upon hearing a fire alarm would want to collect their personal belongings before exiting a building.

2. Most ordinary people when seeing a fire would try to put it out, with whatever means was local to them.

Unfortunately, you are not allowed to do that. Most buildings fire evacuation procedures state drop everything and get out. The reason being that get rich quick lawyers will invalidate an insurance policy if "untrained" people try to fight a fire and get injured, or people do not exit a building as fast as possible.

Common sense has gone down the drain. Once I was last out of my building on a "known" practice fire alarm, and got ticked off by the fire warden. I told him straight that if it had been a real fire, as the first out he would have been as much use to anyone as a chocolate teapot. Whereas I might have saved a few lives. I challenged him to report me, but he never did.

I also have mine, and if you don't like them ... tough, live with it.
