Really thick cloud cover here in Norfolk - not a chance of seeing it, but it's definitely darker - I need the lights on in the house.

Good morning Bekkie - need to switch the lights on here - but we've got such thick cloud cover there's no way of seeing the eclipse - a shame for all the school children who have gone to school all excited about it.

And if the nutrients have been leached out, you just need to add some

Good morning all   Just popping in on OH's laptop before I head for the dentist.  I've not even tried to turn my laptop back on yet - going to wait until OH has a moment to console me if it all goes wrong - he says he knows about the BIOS screen  I think it was Edd mentioned   We just need to find a moment or three to do it.  I've been applying myself to my knitting finishing daughter's cardi now that I've got the neck shaping sorted - plus quite a few phonecalls about Pa - he's very frail now and it's been decided that he won't get out of bed to sit in his chair any more   He's so weak he can hardly hold his upper body upright but bless him he leaned forward to pick something up and kept going forward and fell - he's not hurt but it just shows how frail he is.  He spends most of the day asleep anyway so he'll be fine in bed.  Ma sits with him holding his hand - she's told us that she met him recently and he's a lovely man and they're going to get married

Don't think we'll see the eclipse here - it's dull and overcast here I remember the last eclipse (well the total one in 1999) - I was working in a medieval building housing an art gallery and Early Music Centre - my boss was a lovely lass from Adelaide and we went out into the courtyard with pinhole thingies and had a fantastic view of the eclipse and a few glasses of something alchofrolic

Punkdoc - you'll have to learn to keep that new car of yours under control!!!  Sounds as if it might be a bit more exciting than you thought
