A lovely morning as I made my way down Crispycat Hill, accompanied by the Four Tops...

A chance meeting with old chum Jim Park at lunchtime as I took a walk..

He was on his way to Arthur's Seat for a walk up it so I accompanied him all the way along Princes St...

We rejoiced in the fact we were able to agree on something (despite having a degree in Economics, Jim seems to be a supporter of Scottish Independence and the SNP) - that companies sporting deficits in their Defined Benefit pension schemes ought to plug those holes before paying any dividends...

Of course, the downside is that many of those very pension schemes rely on those very dividends to try and secure the benefits of their members...

Everything's connected...

Farewell to Jim and a pop into Fopp but nothing enticed - a salad lunch at M&S and then more walking...

Home in the evening and Anne was out at Zumba - fine tuned this week's podcast and uploaded for tomorrow...

Watched an episode of "Supernatural" and cooked a not great chorizo and prawn spaghetti...

On Anne's return, we watched the second in a two parter of "DCI Banks" - Stephen Tompkinson is dreadful but it's enjoyable hokum...

Late on, the Twitter influenced me into listening to uriah Heep, Pat Metheny and some Beethoven which is included on the gold disc hurtling through space aboard Voyager...

Lights out...

highlight of the Day : Chance meeting...
