Have you checked your bilges for algae barons and Steersmen?

There definitely used to be something else here that's missing now.  A piece of furniture, or something.  Just can't put a finger on what it was.

Can I just check... you haven’t just suddenly realized what it is that has been going wrong all this time, and finally know how the world could be made a good and happy place, have you? That this time it is right, it will work, and no one will have to get nailed to anything?

If that is the case - make sure you write it down, otherwise you'll forget (or the Earth will be destroyed by a Constructor Fleet).

Forgot to say, that post inspired me to download the radio play of the Hitchhikers Guide. Never heard the actual play before; in fact i didn't even know the play existed before the book

Sometimes karma really does work. After the kerfuffle with having to move out of my last place because the landlord thought he could make a packet flogging his slum I heard through the grapevine that he couldn't get anyone to buy it at any price and has been forced to put it up for rent again (at an outrageous price still) and has been carrying all his costs in the meantime so he's rather desperate from what I gather. I hope he enjoys the sleepless nights me and the missus suffered through when he violated our rights.

Just seen a beautiful little kingfisher down by the river. He kept ahead of me before diving underwater and coming up with a tiny fish in his beak which he promptly wolfed down.
Day made.

Lovely.  I've lived in a canal boat for more than three years and haven't seen any yet - I even painted one on a neighbour's boat once. 
I have seen a few on boating trips with my Dad though; they're truly amazing-looking things.

I glimpsed one once - a truly mesmerising colour, unlike anything else I've seen. I remember it making my day as well.
