Precipitation Within Sight

I love to walk in the rain
The patter on my coat hood
Tugging the corner down to
stop the wet on my face
Wet backs of legs
Puddles to avoid

Those low dark clouds
A familiar landscape
made different by the wet

When I get home I can
take off my damp coat
and say.
“That’s me for the day.”
Then sit in with coffee
and look at old railway pictures

The rain taps on my window
my lamp on the old trains
I see the water dripping
on the puddles

I’m glad for the rain
to make the sun seem better
And, mainly, because without
rain, we would all die

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition Twitter app

Ever since I've had my tablet the Twitter client hasn't worked. So after nearly two years I finally figured it out! It is a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition. The normal Twitter app does not work on it. The bespoke one I had on there was not working correctly. After googling the question I finally found a mention of the Samsung Apps app. It seems it was disabled. Even then it was setup to update automatically but I still had to manually provoke it.

Now, after all this time my Twitter app works again. I never did like the 3rd party twitter clients.

Ainsley Harriot's instant couscous has palm oil in it. I tweeted to him about it, but he doesn't care. I wonder if he 'drizzles' it on, hand held high at the back. "Ooo look at that lovely palm oil going on!"
