Having managed to prevent Bentley escaping through judicious use of the hose pipe, we are GnT positive. And very happy on our new terrace. Who knew it would still be cool enough to be outside even in mid summer?
I really like 538′s presentation of the
chances of countries going through from the group stages. It clearly depends on the SPI and their model based on it being of any value.
I also liked the
alternative world cup by various indicators. There’s only one that England can win on, I think.
Thanks to Paul and Big Lychee for confirming that there is a smaller lawn in Hong Kong.

Not what I expected from an Apple employee
Just after the last post, I saw a crawly that seemed too slow for a cockroach.
Our seemed to be a beetle, and quite a cool one. Bad photo, sorry.
Bentley had a play with it and then vomited. Not sure if that was grass-related or beetle-related.
I was worried about biters and cockroaches now we have a terrace. There are some large dead exemplars of both in the runners of our sliding doors.
So far, though, the most extraordinary addition to our menagerie is some frogs (or things that sound like frogs) in the undergrowth. Bentley is stalking and they have gone quiet.
Got up late, mowed and watered the lawn =:-), went for Sunday roast, sang renaissance music in a church, finishing with beers and dinner in a British gastropub.
It’s slightly odd that it is 32 degrees and ferociously polluted outside, but apart from that spot on.
Bentley is not liking this at all. He’s pictured above the kitchen cabinets in the new flat and has now built a fortress from the stuff up there to protect him from the evil humans who are wrecking his comfortable life.
Caroline is out of Hong Kong as does happen on a regular basis.
This afternoon, the cars were mirroring my thoughts.
Both on Wong Nai Chung Road, minutes from home.
