THIS DAY IN WW2 (11.11.1940)
In the Mediterranean... The British Mediterranean Fleet attacks the Italian base at Taranto. During the night 21 Swordfish aircraft attack in two waves and gain three torpedo hits on the brand new battleship Littorio and one each on Caio Duilio and Conte di Cavour. Two other ships are damaged. The aircraft have come from the carrier Illustrious and only two are lost. This brilliant attack will certainly is subsequently studied by other navies, particularly the Japanese.
Over Britain... In a postscript to the main actions a force of Italian bombers, protected by biplane fighters, is sent to attack Harwich. They are intercepted and lose six planes for no loss to the RAF. The Italians make other attacks, mostly by night, on east-coast ports during the next nine weeks.

TODAY IN MY LIFE
Providing temporary shelter for daughter and all her worldly goods while she is "between digs" for a few days. Shopping and marketing - housework impossible due to daughter's storage boxes everywhere! Everyone getting on so far.

Whilst so far tranquil indoors, looks like I will have to venture out shopping through a storm. Oh well never mind! I intend to make progress on my book and switch gas/electric supplier.

TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
Really pleased with progress - sailed through "accursed day job" but still have much to learn because I'm still cursing - however I'm now observing the cursing rather than living it - it's kinda amusing.

TODAY'S THOUGHT
You'll be amazed at how much you can give when you have nothing.

TODAY'S QUESTION FOR YOU
What right now is the greatest thing to be thankful for?

TODAY'S ONELINER
Republicanism in a nutshell: You have two cows and a house. Your neighbour lives in a shack and has no cows. So? : D

TODAY'S TUNE I LIKE
A good 70's rock instrumental, big at the time, now long forgotten, revisited by me. Interesting tribute vid.
