What would happen if you gave a yo-yo to a flock of flamingos?

Accumulated updates.

I have a new gas meter. The pressure at the hob seems to have increased noticeably. Should I sue Transco for the increase in carcinogens in my food?

I have a booster on my TV aerial. Digital reception is not perfect, but both analogue and digital signals are much improved. At last, access to the Dilbert Channel (ftn).

The DVD set of Fantasia/Fantasia 2000 arrived. From the 2000 version, I think my favourite is still Carnival of the Animals, as it was when I saw the film at the cinema, though it's really difficult to put the sections in any kind of order - they are all excellent. First impressions of the original are that Stokowski played up his part as conductor a lot, and that his orchestration of the Toccata and Fugue contains too much rubato, but I have yet to watch that in full.

The garden is a little tidier. The house is suddenly much warmer. Michael Fish promised thunder for Monday but there is no sign of it. At least the forecast for Tuesday's Transit of Venus is still good.
