Making it noisy
In the silent lab I found.

Review/notes: Yesterday we went poaching greenery in the Lawns Park and today (when we both were finally home from work — I had a Sunday thing in the lab) we put on some Christmas jazz and polished off a bottle of Jäger whilst some duck legs roasted and Jackie arranged the pine, laurel, holly, and cedar snips on the mantle. This feels like Christmas should do, and I’ll savour the murderous hangover to come.
The lab had to be shut down on Friday for some planned diagnostic power outages so I went in to bring the mass spectrometers back to life in time for the kids to have at them Monday morning. As soon as the vacuum systems were started I figured I had at least an hour to kill and headed out to do a loop around Marston, North Oxford, Wolvercote and the tow paths. Not as nippy yesterday:
