    Just strayed into the Last Night of the Proms on tv and they were playing Land of Hope and Glory and amongst the Union Flags and the flags of St George were quite a few EU flags and it makes me smile that there will be loads of gammons going absolutely apeshit about it.

    actually I loved the inverse of it :) there were so many EU flag hat wearers who were just singing along to Rule Britannia,Land of Hope Glory,Jerusalem the national anthem... :wink: none of them shouting for a chorus of Ode to Joy :lol:

    A mentally retarded man stole a cellphone from a shop. He was caught but the owner of the shop decided to let him keep it, after all, the mentally challenged gentleman would not know how to operate the complicated handset.

    My 3 screen set up for working from home! If I could add a forth I probably would!

    It is very easy to lose where my mouse cursor is though!

    Ran out of water on a long fell race in the Beacons today so had to refill from a stream. You can keep the fancy bottled spring waters, nothing could be as refreshing. It really picked me up for the final slog.

    And protein from a deceased sheep upstream but it was delicious plus a bit of gut rot might get me down to race weight for my marathon

  • Japan beating Ireland. Nothing against Ireland in the slightest but Japan deserved that for the way they played and the relentless energy. Superb.

    Earning a hundred quid for a few hours work on a Sunday morning just for holding a pint glass, singing the Welsh national anthem a few times and shouting at a TV screen whilst getting fed a free cooked breakfast. Film extra work is a piece of ****. Irony is that if I hadn't been there getting paid for that I'd have been doing much the same at home watching the rugby!

    Meant in not a sneering manner but watching MvdP blow up big time in the final lap of the World's RR. Lights out, all done. Happened to me in 2017 on a long ride, since when I've paid lot more attention to nutrition and hydration. Cheers me up that pro cyclists can get it so wrong as well. Shame, I thought he was on for the win.

    Happened to me too -- very scary when a long way from home with no water or food.
