Morning. Stuck at work otherwise I'd be supporting local rememberance service and parade. Hopefully we will not forget the sacrifice they made all those years ago. On another note I trust somebody didn't to wxxnkered last night. My turn tomorrow night.
Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    From his post at 4am I think he stayed sober.

    Off to Manchester later because it doesn't rain enough here.

    I will be attending a local Remembrance service, of the type that some on this forum would prefer to do away with.
    My afternoon will then closely follow the template laid down some time ago. Massive roast dinner and a kip on the settee.

    Local rememberence service and straight into the pub as village tradition demands

    The house is exceptionally messy and could do with an industrial clean

    Good luck with the aftermath TLW, trust you had fun but can you remember?
    Off to Gloucester shortly, not looking forward to it but needs to be done.

    Last night's take away curry caused some adverse comments from the other members of the household this morning :)

    Soon it will time to remember those who sacrificed everything - somebody please remind certain people in Cake Stop. After that, just stuff really.

    More mundane domesticity today with some beers. Maybe some cooking soon. Mrs BBGeek is clearing kitchen cupboards of stuff, place looks like a food bank.
    Laters.

  • Allowed myself a few miles blast on a normally busy B road.. everybody else was busy being silent somwhere.

    Didn't say a word for the all 60 miles/4 hours... beat that for a minute of silence :-)

    Sounds like fun. I did once ride through a Remembrance Sunday gathering. Like you, I thought the roads would be quiet. I had totally lost track of time and wondered what the group on the road was. They let me know pretty quickly.

    Nice one MF. Amongst all the talk of the WW 1 armistice, there have been many since killed and injured in the cause of their country, and I shall be raising a glass tonight to them.

    the Hound, Bob Dylan, and a bottle of red.

    Me, the hound, Joni Mitchell and a glass of Hennessey.

    I've popped that red I opened earlier in an empty half bottle and in the fridge. Will probably improve for 24 hours.

    Sacrilege, it has to be drunk. You're going to hope that it doesn't go vinegary.

    It's still a bit burly. It'll be fine. A half bottle of good claret will cheer me up on a Monday night. With my lentils.

    Meat once or twice a week. Red meat not so often.
    Fish 2 or 3 times a week.

    I'd sooner have Trout over steak.

    Meat virtually every day for us. Occasionally fish for lunch. perhaps salmon.

    Do you lentil eaters don your sandals for the occasion?

    OI!

    I never eat lentils. Unless Hoppy can come up with a good vegetable curry recipe for me.

    Personally, meat in East Africa actually tasted good. Here, it tastes bland. Everybody rants about a good Angus steak or Sirloin but I find it over priced and very over rated.
    British meat is officially shyte.

    I eat less and less red meat as I get older. We all should cut down on meat consumption. It's full of steroids and anti-biotics and it's environmental impact is massive.

    Sorry but it's true.
