The small conical emitters are being installed on the lamp posts in Skipton Road. No news from Mrs Trelliss. Only good thing is that Turkey foil is on sale in the Cathedral of Chice. Bit thicker than usual brand. Good for lining beanies to block the transmissions.

Early morning watch here; can just about make out an outline of some very strange shapes against the sky. No lights to be seen yet however. Steve from Norfolk and I had a panic attack on Friday and purchased a tree to which he has affixed small spherical objects which I believe to be valves. The tree seems to have transfixed Samuel-the-Spanuel who is singing to it; his erstwhile ladyfriend Hunny the Bunny (also a spanuel) has joined in the community singing.....

Xmas tree....  Have they no shame?

Jules, up late this morning at 04:10. Nothing happening here except bad weather. So sorry to hear that Steve cracked. Get him on the pills immediately!

I notice the knitted tree was partly the work of a "library knitting group". Is this a pseudonym for the `cells' of some kind of undercover organisation operating throughout the country. Little old ladies led by a female Captain Mannering learning how to disable a tank by knitting a steel thread barrier or how to kill quickly and cleanly with a knitting needle or making Molotov cocktails from Sanatogen Tonic Wine (you don't need to ignite it, just throw it and the wine does the rest for you)?

Up for work Moh. I'm a slow smiler and need some "Julie time" before I can face the tribulations of work. Anyhoo the Landlord's lady-friend is busy hanging up silver foil shapes across the ceiling in the pub - a vain attempt to protect us all, thus far she has resisted the conical transmitter but I fear it will be installed soon; she has that look about her.

Moh, Jules and I are the night shift.....  We have to keep a 24 hour watch. Notice that bin men have emitters in the cab of the wagon. Mobile emitters to boost strength in outlying areas.

Get some foil in your hat woman! You are obviously susceptible to the emissions.

Is your small one a natural one , an artifical one ( we had a tiny one in the window overlooking the electrified railway , with small baubles and boxes on , these were merrily knocked off by the cat and chased around the floor of the flat by the aforementioned feline ),  Or is it one of these imported plastic things in a tub that if you fit a battery in the bottom the LEDs light up - and no doubt there as a switch to get it to sing Santa Clause is Coming to Town - unless its been programmed wrongly and emits the tune and words to Fly me to the Moon.

Panbiker seems not to like my use of non clickable links - I put them like that for two reasons - to allow one to take it or leave it ,you dont accidentally click it and get taken away elsewhere mid read of the far more interesting forum ,  it's fairly easy on more recent computers to cut and paste web addresses , and on even more recent browsers highlight the address , right mouse click brings up menu to open in new window or tab.

Not a case of not liking, just a more elegant way of doing it with a description of where the URL will take you.

Anyway, what's all this about accidentally clicking. I think this could be a symptom of the emmissions around at the moment, get some more foil on!

Putting foil in my hat, Stanley.
Is that a safe thing to do if one has dental fillings though? Or am I just increasing my chances of getting tapped in to?
What happens once THEY get into your head?

Have decorated the house for Christmas but did not put you-know-what up this year as I seem to have a shortage of power points in all the right places now that we have rearranged things.
