CCTV? Now I know where the turning gear motor got to. We have moved on even from the Image Orthicon let alone from John Logie's spinning discs.

Once we get Tmac set up with a Sterntube channel I'll get the motor back. Better take a few turns out that way before we try air. Mindez-vous (je faits le practicing de frogaise dans le espere de voiring belle-soeur dans Juli) I suspect our loyal readers might think she runs on air anyway. The hot kind.

Firstly all vermin will be caged from 23.00 to 8.00
Gash bins will not conform to MLC but will be "V" and "Non V", to reduce the rats food bill.
Beer will be supped from glasses, drinking from bottles is for corner boys.
Ulster Fry's will be served on Sunday mornings and on 12 July, No exceptions.
Female visitors will not be rogered in the Steering Flat.
A happy ship is a deficient ship.

Who is our security officer? I'd like a little more attention paid to ISPS please. I woke this morning to three unauthorised persons onboard and on my deck this morning. Two escaped before the boys (and a girl) in blue arrived. One had locked himself in my playroom. I jammed the lock to prevent his escape while completing my 999 call. Big blue-boy used his key to open the door (two size 14s, back against the back wall, several attempts) only to find miscreant had fled by forcing window and jumping from roof.

Somewhat ashamed to report that nothing of the several nickworthy stuff in open sight seemed to offer any attraction to the little faecalites as nothing seems to have been stolen. The jam of the forced door jam isn't half a mess.

Late roughage, no doubt my digestion will be irregular for days.

Obliged, Sir W. For security or bowels?

(it turns out my tenant caught two 'high as kites' sitting in the garden on her way to work - description doesn't match the two of the (at least) three that I saw. I'm not sure I mind innocent enjoyment, I suppose no one is polite enough to ask these days because they will so often be refused.

(Is any aprticular Yard traditional for hanging? If so, do we have one?)

Jolly good. However I am not sure its use will be allowed. On one occasion, when the ragged regretfully-born were throwing rocks at the neighbours green and other outhouses from a disputed lane, I asked the boys in blue to come and put down poison. The only comfort I got from their answer was the addition of "anymore" to their "I am sorry we don't do that".

That's neighbourly of you Rusty but if you just send the adult friendly poison. With McMmuckBurgers opposite I have an abundance of bait.

(Not that you wouldn't be welcome but I wouldn't want to put you out).

Sorry to hear about your interloper troubles, copious supplies of "shit kicker" boots have been immediately dispatched complete with "bolt through the neck" brigade volunteers to ensure no further incursions will be tolerated.

If the "shit kicking" fails to have the desired effect phase two will be put into effect viz: "do you not want your knees anymore?" or the ultimate "what size do you take in a hood?"

Bastards should be keel hauled Is flogging no longer an option on the IoM?

Appreciated Sir W. I'll be with you shortly. I may well have to arrive without a tincture of the more favoured Tawny as when I last sounded the cellar it was empty and the one opened bottle is about to lose suction.

I am not sure that the freezer will improve the cheese either (not goat I trust). The Christmas Baby Stilton (she wot wasn't but occasionally ate due covid cancellation of Christmas feast) is looking a little off colour but happenstancialy M'Lady is expected to call soon with a fresher half cheese left over from her TT visitors and Red Arrows party of Saturday passed. Shows she hasn't visited her home turf recently as she usually only serves Cashel blue (also V much to my taste but without rind which I need to make 'Stilton curls' - a moreish tab nab made by sprinkling the powdered rind onto puff pastry in a sort of Swiss-roll fashion).

As to where bound, I understand that Nocontrol have upgraded the ECDIS to AI. The printout has several destination ports all named Mulberry, when queried it responds that that the only other Artificial Island it can locate is an almost match, Tracy Island which it understands is not only artificial but also fictional. So its passage plan is for Normandy.

Presently, though, there is a problem with the communications between the ECDIS and the Anschutz Steering stand and we aren't going anywhere at present.

The latter thinks that Normandy is a diversion and insists we should be making for Calais.
