Tuesday 5 November

Guy Fawkes night tonight, and the fireworks are popping intermittently. It's been an unpleasant day, with frequent heavy showers, some with hail and sleet, and low temperatures. We barely managed 8C / 46F at best. The mercury is currently, at 9pm, headed for zero.

Last night, I decided to temporarily deactivate my Facebook account. When I return to Facebook, probably next week, the friends list will be a dozen names lighter. I cannot go into details, but sometimes you have to let people go, and the fall-out tends to be bigger than just the primary causal person. My output will also no longer include (in)direct references to the people that I come into contact with, as even that has caused me problems. 'Nuff said.
