RDP Tuesday: Draconic

It is not quite draconic
Am not being laconic
But the Swiss are voting again
They opened a store
Where we can buy more
But our money is on the wane
To buy fighter jets
As tough as it gets
Some say it is luxury
We should all say yes
If we do it’s a guess
The jets are not for free
The decision is made
Decided on our grade
We do not need a flying show
This choice has no chance
Can be seen at a glance
The vote will be a mega No.

RDP Tuesday: Party

Every evening is a party when I prepare the food
Some of this and some of that to put you in the mood
Although it can get boring with the normal choice of meat
Sometimes I have a brilliant idea, it really becomes a treat
I discovered a cucumber in the fridge and I served it with a sauce
I sliced it, added spice, but peeled it first of course
Roast beef was at the store, so I bought some sauce tartare
Now the party is complete, with some pickles in a jar
Take your places at the table, relax and be at ease
Oh, do not forget I also found a piece of very good cheese

RDP Tuesday: Dreamy

Perhance to dream?
No Hamlet, there is too much noise
The heavens have opened
the thunder enjoys
No chance of a sleep
To relax and wander
To trouble your mind
with thoughts to squander
Enjoy noise of rain
It’s tumbling down
Squelching of tyres
Going to town
And now another clap
Perhaps ready to go
The sun might arrive
And form a rainbow
The dreams have dispersed
In droplets of rain
Just close your eyes
And try it again

RDP Tuesday: Dreamy

RDP Tuesday: Chart

I do not really have time for making charts, I leave it up to those that have fun and tend to have delight in showing us what lies ahead, based on figures. Sometimes I am not sure that they are facts.

However I was not very happy with tomorrows weather chart for our little village in Switzerland. The title tells us in english “Temperature and Precipitation” and then we get the hourly time of the day from 9.00 am until 4.00 pm. Of course there would be more, but my efforts on taking a photographic memory only managed so much on my mobile phone.

Now we get to the exciting bit. Below the times we have illustrations on what to expect for weather tomorrow and here I do not have to translate. Nicely formed little grey blocks resembling clouds and of course the accompanying raindrops falling down. We even have the height of the rain in mm distance. The only positive news is the bottom line where the possibility of this actually happening is shown in %. This would mean for my that I have a 59% chance of getting wet in my wheelchair in the afternoon when I go shopping  You just have to love those charts. I do not.
