One thing that is in my favour today, is that it seems that we missed the worst of the rain here in Portsmouth last night and the weather today is not to bad. The forecast for today is for a cloudy day with some sharp showers and a few sunny spells as you can see from the Photograph below.
I have taken two Photo,s courtesy of "Google Maps" of The views from Portsdown Hill Road, The first is looking South from the top of Portsdown hill over Portsmouth with the Isle of Wight on the Horizon and the Second looking North from the same spot with the Southdown,s National Park on the horizon. I have driven along this road many times in the winter with Snow or rain falling on the north side of the road and clear fine and dry to the south. it is a weird Phenomenon.

Those were Excellent and went down a treat with a glass of "Ribena", so now I am ready for a bit of TV Time. so far today I have felt pretty good although I have not done much, it seems that the fridays after the Thursday that I take the 15 mg of Prednisolone i s better than if it is after the Thursday I take the 2 mg of Prednisolone, oh well thats life I suppose.
The film on TV that I will watch this afternoon is "The Four Feathers" a 1939 Movie starring John Clements and Ralph Richardson.

So It is now approaching 3.30 and it is time for me to go and have a lie down before Pointless 5.15. it has not been a bad day, feeling a bit bloated after eating those four loaded Potato skins so must make sure I have a smaller dinner this evening. so before I go for my lie down I will check to see how the Olympic torch relay is going today. It is on Day 28 Today and is going from Alnwick to Newcastle. Alnwick is the home of the Castle featured in the "Harry Potter" films.
