    Morning, currently nice outside. No work today. Luckily youngest lads options evenings sorted last week. Hayden is probably wedged in a phone box somewhere getting some shut eye.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Pulled up running last night with a painful calf, it had better sort itself out rapido...

    And what the flip am I doing in work at 8.20am? It's ridiculous!

    Work commitments cancelled. Today will be mostly domestic deity tasks and caring for sick Mrs O. Now, where did I put my nurse's uniform?

    Oh and bonne chance Hayden.

    Probably in a hedge having a nap or some "being one with nature" nonsense.

    Coffee is somewhere (not made it yet) risk of doing work is ever increasing but the computer wants to reboot so I may have to long that out for the rest of the week.

    Reboot at some point webex and nap.

    Hayden has probably gone off grid and training to be a wooden spoon whittler or pineapple grower

    He was a decent enough bloke really.
    We might miss him a little.
    On the plus side, trees will be much happier with no one to shout at them.
    Unfortunately, the saying 'better to burn out than to fade away' does not quite apply to getting squished under a truck because he got a bit wobbly through exhaustion, hunger, hypothermia and fever induced dizziness.

    It's not good here today. I spent 2 hours compiling an email to my brother who wants to go down the self sufficiency/'The Good Life route :roll:

    So many things to consider, so much work to be done. He's got some land. He's got the cash for a sizeable plot but he doesn't have the nous nor realises how much work this venture is.
    He lives off rental income and lives in a commune. Hippy capitalism.

    I'm off to burn fossil fuels, fart and drink coffee flown in from Columbia.

    Laters.

    SG would be really jealous.

    Woke myself up with a ride into work even if I was a bit on the slow side. Got lots to do but have said I'll show up to the leaving drinks of a minion (contractor) - feel I have to go as there are two very good reasons to turn up. In the meantime I'm stuffing my face with food and trying to get things onto other peoples to do lists.

    Afternoon folks,
    Good day down here, not too much of a hangover considering we went out straight from work and had a curry. I also seem to have achieved something today. The minor thing is getting a load of the stuff that gets dumped on our department stopped and making the people that should be doing it do their jobs properly. The big win is my campaign to bring back cake day has succeeded. A conversation was had when the big boss was over from the States for the MD's retirement. I pointed out that I felt replacing cake with fruit was a bad decision, cake is a treat which will give morale a little boost, whilst fruit is just fruit*. It seems the big boss agrees with me as he has sent orders from over the pond to reinstate cake day.
    Wobbled in with the new cassette and all gears worked fine, that's still with the 10 speed at the moment. Picking up the new Ultegra stuff for later upgrade from Sigma on the way home tonight. Will browse bike porn whilst I'm in there of course.
    Piña it sounds as though your brother is as mad as HM. I don't think any of the rest of us can claim sanity however, except for one of the MFs perhaps, but the rest of them never let that one speak. Hope HM is enjoying himself and the wind is behind him.
    Onwards and upwards...

    * never had any pineapple in the fruit baskets.

    My brother is absolutely minted. He could buy a 'Barbie Barbara'. Some gurls will do anything for cash. Well, that's what Vtech said.

    I was thinking about dead billionaire penis bloke.
    I was thinking that a Viagra dose during the operation would have increased circulation so therefore, he couldn't even go out with a (small) bang.

    why would he have Viagra? its a vasodilator so its only a temporary effect, whereas a collagen implant would be a longer lasting procedure.

    It was just a thought - in case anything went wrong, he would, at the bare minimum, go out with a bang.

    Battered those rain-loaded 40mph cross-headwind gusts on the way home. Fun with 50mm rims. Good job I had dry kit and a nice warm house and hot shower to arrive home to.

    Ain't that the truth. Little fella on box rims being blown about all over the road asked me how the hell I stayed upright. I said that it's a bonus of a being a fat cyclist, along with beaucoup watts over short distances on the flat.

    One slight Westerly breeze and I end up in Norway.
