    I spent a few hours at the dog sanctuary this weekend being auditioned by this very shy prospective new pack member. She’s a pharaoh hound, name of Candy. Gorgeous isn’t she?

    Apropos of rock cutting, we made an interesting discovery some years ago when working on my palazzino conversion.

    I think that most of the time it takes a special kind of obsessive passion to do a “Grand Designs” project such that spreadsheets and budgets go out of the window. I’ve posted about mine on this...

    The case shape (although not that unusual and rather lovely bezel) has something of the Oysterquartz about its styling.

    That money will still (just) buy a Seiko MM300.

    It will buy a very nice older full size Omega SMP quartz, but I very much doubt you’ll find an automatic in that price bracket.

    The “green soupy” stuff is called “liquor” but is totally non-alcoholic! It’s a thin white parsley sauce made with the water in which eels have been cooked.

    Weekend guilty pleasures!
