Tuesday 20 December

Last weekend, the museum at the Deelen Airforce Base, a couple of miles north of Arnhem, was about to open when its staff noticed that the model of a F-104 Starfighter outside the museum had gone missing. A note on the pedestal where it used to stand said "Fly away. See you next year". The BBC referred to the incident as jet-napping and a spokesman for VLB Deelen Museum expressed the hope that the 1:2 scale model would be returned in the New Year - with a full tank. I took the picture below on 22 June last year.

And I came across this ludicrous site, which offers chunks of Glencoe for sale, from a square foot upwards. You can call yourself Laird or Lady of Glencoe, except that there will be dozens of different Lairds and Ladies. Which, according to those in the know, is impossible.

Today, I awoke to snow on the ground, which quickly melted into a mushy mess. I'm still not feeling all that great today, so have taken it easy.
