Much lack of cold, negative atmospheric movement, no
chance of skywater and dawns crack is magnificent at the castle this morn.
MOT day for the motor, I think I would rather go to

The Welsh assembly has backed a bill to remove “reasonable
punishment” as a defence to give the
same legal protection from physical punishment as adults.
The legislation would mean a parent or guardian could not use the defence if accused of assault or battery against a child.
Battered child; isn’t that Scotland?
Good job they didn’t grow up in the 1950s.
A pair of teenage girls were rushed to hospital with kidney damage after a three hour squatting match got out of hand.
Xiao Tang, 19, did over 1000 squats to be crowned champion despite admitting she was ‘not used to exercise’.
She had challenged a friend to the exercise match over video chat and both refused to back down. The duo squatted for two to three hours to see who had the best stamina, before mutually giving in.
But their bid to out-squat each other backfired when they woke up the next day with aching legs and brown urine.
They were diagnosed with rhabdomyolysis, a serious condition caused by skeletal muscle injury.
Dr Bruce Cohen, a medical officer for the FBI, told Live Science getting this condition through extreme exercise is rare. He said squatting isn’t usually dangerous but it was likely the girls exerted themselves well above their physical limits.
No shit, I always knew exercise was dangerous.
A tourist learned the hard way why it’s important not to ignore local warnings.
A beachgoer in a skimpy swimsuit tried to pet a wild horse at a beach, only to find out why locals advise against it.
As the man touched the animal, it kicked him in the plums.
The incident occurred on Assateague Island, located off the coast of Maryland, The Sun reported. It has not been reported if the man was injured in the incident, although the footage showed him falling to the ground in pain.
The horses on Assateague Island are famous among locals and travellers. It’s unclear how exactly they ended up on the island, but according to local folklore, they landed on Assateague after surviving a shipwreck over 300 years ago.
Makes your eyes water.....
Scientists claim to have created the world's first human-monkey hybrid using groundbreaking scientific techniques.
The human-monkey embryos, in which human cells are added to the monkey embryos, were created by researchers in China.
They hope the breakthrough will eventually create an endless supply of human organs for transplants.
But critics have warned that the scientific development will create "disturbing" dilemmas over the ethics of human-animal hybrids.
WTF is wrong with some of us?
