The first person to go over Niagara Falls in a barrel was, judging by this photograph, Harry Redknapp.

 

I hope that barrel had a bung.

The Sydney Harbour Ferries had a competition to name their new ferry. The breakaway winner was Boaty McBoatface. Since that name was already taken, they decided to name it "Ferry McFerryface."

Bit of googling says that 3 (at least) local councils have Gritty McGritface.

Looks like our local council is behind the times. Surrey did this a couple of years ago and have "Snow Surrender" "Roger Spreaderer" and "Gritty Gritty Bang Bang."

Just managed to bag a couple of seats to see Peter Kay at Leeds Arena in October 2018. Box office opened today selling Mon, Tues and Weds tickets, the initial tour dates. These sold out immediately ( the majority no doubt being bought by touts with computerised buying systems ). As I prepared to leave the website they announced two more dates, Thursday and Friday. Got two for the Friday. 

Mrs Moose is one happy lady☺

My kitten just caught a fly out of the air.  Kitten was by my feet as I opened the back door to put the bin out, fly came in, kitten from standing start straight into the air about 3 foot up and caught the thing, munched it right down.  Dirty great big fly as well.

I really don't mind the cat murdering flies as I despise them in the house.

We're off out to a Turkish restaurant tonight, great food, good service, nice and convenient.  Oh, and they also have a belly dancer on tonight.

pringles are only flavoured on one side, the flavour rubs off on the one above it making both sides flavoured when you open them to eat

A friend's son did Law at Oxford and was given a place at Linklaters.

Starting salary £45k at 22 years old.

I should have worked harder at school.

That's the trainee rate, Newly Qualified solicitors (deliberate caps) start at £78.500 (plus bonus up to £12k).

For those not aware, it's two years as a "trainee" then NQ status.  £78,500 isn't too bad a starting salary for a 24 year old.

In other streaming news, Google are threatening to disable the YouTube app on Amazon devices. Neither side has come out of this looking good so far, but it's the customers who are being punished.

having had both ainsleys offerings and the new Heinz "cream of cup a soup" range I can confirm there is a new king in town - move over ainsley - your time as cup a soup king is over.

I think the last time speed was a concern of his, he was doing 40 in a 30mph zone.:ph34r:

Sorry, Bleep, I just couldn't help myself. I shall say 3 "Hail Marys".
