Good morning DG.

Today is Saturday 4th November 2017.
Sunrise was two minutes ago, and sunset is at 4.28pm.
There is a full moon today.

It has been raining since late last night, and should carry on until lunchtime.
The temperature outdoors is 12°C.
Tomorrow will be dry but colder.
It is Autumn.

You should consider wearing browns, yellows and oranges, as these are on trend.
It is not cold enough to require a scarf.

Please note that the Docklands Light Railway is closed this weekend between Bow Church and Stratford.
There are no replacement buses, so you may be charged more for your journey.
This is the 18th weekend closure this year.
Thankfully only one more is scheduled.

The Overground between Romford and Upminster is also closed this weekend, but this is unlikely to bother you.

There is sufficient milk in the fridge.
The linen basket is only half full.
The washing up can wait until tomorrow.
No visitors are expected.


Donald Trump did not tweet anything inflammatory overnight.

While you were asleep, your tweet about Boris Johnson got another 31 retweets and 83 likes.
It now stands at 1985 retweets and 3431 likes, with 396,066 impressions.
Apparently the Evening Standard mentioned it yesterday in their Londoner's Diary.

If you are going out today, you may like to know that London's Christmas lights are up.
Due to austerity, there is no need to rush out and Instagram any of them.
» Oxford Street - the same lights as last year (switch on - Tuesday)
» Bond Street - the same lights as last year (switch on - Friday)
» Covent Garden - the same lights as last year (switch on - Nov 14)
» Regent Street - the same lights as last year (switch on - Nov 16)
» South Molton Street - the same lights as last year (switch on - Nov 17)
» Strand - the same lights as last year (switch on - who cares)

London Live is screening the film The Arsenal Stadium Mystery at 10.15am.
Talking Pictures TV is showing WH Auden's Night Mail documentary at 7.35pm.

It appears you have not yet read the latest Peter Grant book by Ben Aaronovitch.
This one is about ghosts on the Metropolitan line, so you will enjoy it.
The story only has 118 pages, so you should be able to read it in 53 minutes.

The book is available from nearby bookshops for £12.99.
If you can wait until March, the paperback will be £7.99.
Amazon can deliver you a copy on Monday for £14.97.
All copies in Tower Hamlets libraries are currently on loan.

Blackheath fireworks take place tonight at 8pm.
It should have stopped raining well before then.
Alternatively, Victoria Park fireworks are tomorrow at 7pm.
Alternatively, Wanstead Flats fireworks are tomorrow at 6.30pm.
Other displays are available, but they cost.

Tonight's National Lottery is a triple rollover.
The winning numbers are just as likely to be 13, 19, 25, 41, 53 and 54 as anything else.

The clocks do not go back this evening.
Speak again tomorrow.
