  1. I have just been invited to a Civic Reception for the Australian and Scottish World Cup squads
  2. I loved the Kem Follet novels quoted above. ( in fact Follet novels in general) Like HG I could not get enough of Sharpe and the naval series of Chris Durban, Julian Stockwin,David Donachie and of course Hornblower. One of the authors that surprised me was Jeffrey Archer. I didn't want to like them but I did. All Bernard Cornwells novels are good. I would also recommend Nelson DeMille's John Corey series. I am now catching up on some Charles Dickens books ( I have a compendium of 10 books to read/ reread. I have just read Martin Chuzzlewitt and have almost finished a Tale of Two Cities. Disclaimer... when I say read quite a lot of the books quoted above I have listened to on Audible. I listen them everyday whilst driving around and when I am on my exercise bike..
  3. It's ironic isn't it. Any coach would take that at the start of the season. If the new coach does emulate it he will be a contender for Coach of the season. It's all about conception.
  4. San Fairy Anne....... It doesn't matter Brought back from the trenches of WW1 ( Fr Sans Faire Rien) 1
  5. It's a bit black over Bill's mothers....black clouds in the sky Raining stair rods It is yay big ( hold hands apart in the air) Give it a thump ( something that isn't working) Black as yer 'at A slight inclination of the cranium is as adequate as the spasmodic movement of one optical covering to an equinine quadraped totally devoid of its optical senses.... A nods good as wink to a blind donkey. You don't even know how many beans make 5

  7. Crossfire on BBC now. My wife and I stayed in that very hotel in Tenerife a couple of years ago. Its part of a nature reserve with direct access through tunnels into the park. Just like Keely Hawkes' room it overlooked the entertainment area. It could have been the very room. It was in the Jet2 premium collection
  8. C4. Not for any particular reason as for some time now I have turned the sound down and listened to my book on Audible ( Martin Chuzzlewitt at the moment). I know enough of about the game to not need to listen to someone stating the obvious
  9. West Midlands finished above Skolars on goal difference
  10. Life is like a siht sandwich... the more bread you've got, the less siht you've gotta eat,

  12. Good idea. All you need is a team, a ground, oh and £150,000 (if you haven't got accesee to the latter you have no chance). I
  13. But they were not correct. Hence my comment that they failed. Hindsight is a wonderful thing of course and it might have been the best thing for Barrow, giving them time to organise themselves.
  14. Another example of failure by the RFL. Newcastle were gifted a place in the Championship over Barrow by the RFL on the grounds that they were the most likely to succeed. All that glisters.....
  15. Had a good day at Edgebaston and I bumped into Rhubarb Triangulist late of this parish
  16. I have been unretired for 9 years now or to put it another way I should have retired 9 years ago. I have a gold watch from 25 years plus of clocking on ( Thank you Rolls Royce), I am overdue a gold watch for self employment but my self employer is to tight to buy me one. I quite fancy trying to get another gold watch for not being retired ( just 15 years in January to go)
  17. I decided I need to check the contents of my freezer. I bought some lamb hearts from the reduced counter in Tesco over the winter and despite the warm weather I thought it was time to use them up.i cooked them as a casserole on a bed of vegetables. Delicious. Next time I might try them sliced over charcoal
  18. Big delay at Barrow as a spectator is being treated by medical teams 18-22 score at the moment.
  19. It gets worse Tim. I have failed an fitness this morning. You are now playing on both wings.
  20. You won't need a ticket Tim.... You and I are on the wing
