...those with nothing better to do than post 'Lifestyles of...' threads on the Bottom Bracket, including me.

I just went to see Maurizio Pollini play Beethoven's Hammerklavier sonata at the Royal Festival Hall. How about you?

    Sat by the pool in Tampa, 80'+. Just sourced tickets to go watch the NHL match tomorrow Lightning vs Calgary.

    Also picked up a supply of almond M&Ms and almond Snicker bars which are really good, but for some reason are not sold in the uk (or at least I can't find them)

    Just got back from my traditional Wednesday night pubbage. Wrongs gave been righted, shite has been spoke, Saharan dust has been inhaled. All is well with the world.
    Although I may feel slightly shabby in the morning.

    Thats low grade, you need to get yourself over to here:

    Buy their last remaining bottle of this:

    1973_Judgement_of_Paris_Chateau_Montelena.jpg

    Open in right in the tasting room and drink it to completion, every last drop.

    Then you have hit the pinnacle.

    I'm a heathen, I prefer a good ale. Although I did offer to help a neighbour drink some of his plonk as he's had one of those spiral wine cellar things installed under the house. But that was just me being neighbourly.

    Last night we tood the grandson round to his parents along with the remenants of a 5L wine box we brought back from France.

    Then I took a cup of tea to bed and winced at the shaved legs in Cycling Weekly.

    Set the alarm for 6.10am to go for a 40km ride, it was foggy and raining so re set it for 7.30am

    Unlike Matt, who probably is quite gassy today after all that free beer.

    Playing bridge being the euphemism, elderly neighbour being correct?

    That's a very unusual offer, PM me a picture and her number.

    Actually - thinking about it - have I just started pimping out ma burd on the internet?

    Oh well, needs as must and there's always a new set of wheels that need buying. You will wash Little Cornerblock beforehand though won't you? Last time I had to get the wire brush and paraffin out on her and it ended in a massive discount negotiation due to redness and smell.....
