  1. Well done Stuart Broad on taking his 500th Test wicket. 

    1. carinthian


      A super lad. Now in an exclusive club of world class bowlers in which he is probably the best bat.


  2. It's the 1000th consecutive time that Summer Sun has posted the weather observation thread at midnight ....

      It seems Summer Sun has become the resident weather observer.

      Their posting on TheWeatherOutlook forum does comes across as automated. No opinion on what they are posting just comes across as newsfeed.

      Cant be a bot as he has replied to some of my comments esp in the sport threads

  3. I haven't actually missed watching any televised sport.

      I've missed snooker a little, but it looks like that won't be the case for much longer anyway.

      i stopped watching snooker when Jimmy choked the final against Stephen Hendry i think was 1994? not watched it since in fact i think i retired my cue back then also not played since.

      It could have been 1992 or 1994.  In 1992 Jimmy played brilliantly to go 12-6 and 14-8 up, but then the winning post got to him and he lost 10 consecutive frames, missing a number of critical frame balls.  But you're more likely to be remembering 1994, when both players played well under pressure but sporadically missed easy balls, taking it to 17-17, and Jimmy looked set to win in the decider but fluffed an easy black off its spot, and Stephen cleared up to win.

      yep was definitely 1994..i was living in new cross at the time and i moved out of London later that year that was when i stopped playing.

  6. Is there any point showing these soap operas? By the time they start filming again , the writers will have to throw all stories out of the window because of the coronavirus has changed everything.

    1. lassie23


      will they use it to kill off unwanted characters

    2. Weather26


      Or do a timeline jump from the point they stopped filming at.

  7. Happy 103rd birthday Dame Vera Lynn


  8. Panic buying dry pasta, why are people not panic buying Dolmio or other pasta sauces to go with it? 

  9. Does anyone else find Kay Burley gawd awful?

      It was beautiful last night. Mylo and I were by the lake on our walk at about 2130 and you could see the moon's reflection in the water too...

  11. Ant and Dec: You win a trip to Florida to say thank you for your hardwork for NHS, your charity work, you helped your brother recover from a brain tumour.........because.you slipped on mud and it was viewed 4 milllion times on Youtube.....WTF?!



      Its all about 'followers'  the more you have  then great, until it blows your bloody head off.

  12. Sad news about the death of Heather Couper. An astronomer but one meteorological connection, she narrated that memorable Equinox episode "Electric Skies" back in the mid 1990s about lightning. 

  13. Odd thing caught on my timelapse. Not in any other frame. yuI8ZT4.png7TjT4jl.png

      Do you sit and watch the whole of your video the following day. Looks as good as some tv programmes. 

      I have a couple of security cams that only record if they detect motion. Plenty of foxes and swaggering cats so far. 

    3. Weather-history


      Its a timelapse, longest video  is about 4 minutes during longest days of summer.

    4. Snipper


      Had an alert from my security camera on my phone about an intruder in my garden.  Don’t think he got away with anything but did make dirty protest on our patio before he left. Low life.  The police I don’t think will be interested. 

  15. Is the British version of the Voice, the worst ever talent show in history in terms of success of its winners? Its been going since 2012 but who the remembers any ot its winners? 

    1. Rush2112


      Good point.  I cannot name anyone from it.  'The Masked Singer' which starts this weekend looks positively weird.

  16. Kirk Douglas is 103 today, not a bad age.

      He's not senile or suffering from dementia etc. He still pretty sound mind this was last year


    3. Snipper


      Well that is great.

      In the case of my mother her memories drained away years ago.

      I go regularly armed with an iPad and show her photos of family, friends and places. Apart from her mother and father, where there seems to be some vague recognition nothing. Not even her own wedding photographs.

      It is so sad. I know my mother’s views about what her situation now is. She told me often enough.


    4. Snipper


      sorry pressed save twice as nothing appeared to be happening


  17. What has Jimmy White done to his hair? He looks he could have been an extra in the film "Coneheads", just with hair?!

    1. I remember Atlantic 252

      I remember Atlantic 252

      the pic you put up, wouldn't know it was him

    2. Weather-history


      Better off losing hair gracefully than having that. Terrible.

  18. Wow , three claps of thunder. 

  19. So how many in the SW of the country think today's low should have been named?

    1. I remember Atlantic 252

      I remember Atlantic 252

      not in the SW, but should have been without doubt,

    2. chrisbell-nottheweatherman


      Samere here, 252 - given what's showing-up, I think they've underestimated it.

  20. Here's a thought, the time period sine the Berlin Wall came down is now longer than the time period that the Wall was up.

    1. Coopsy


      And yet David Hasslehoff is still living off of that infamous night in 1989 in Germany

      is Summer Sun real or a bot?

    4. Weather-history


      Sometimes wonder, at times they post as though they are a newsfeed. 

  22. Last quarter of 2019 and the last 3 months of the 2010s

  23. According to today's Times, there is    a black hole in the centre of our solar system....??

    1. Spikecollie


      Maybe that's where the gold bog has gone. Seriously, it's silly season for the rags. But maybe, just maybe...

  24. What the hell is going on in the US?! Two mass shootings within 24 hours.

      Yes, the temperature has gone down to 19.C in South Ockendon according to my weather station which has it slightly lower at 18.C, while the Met Office has it at 17.C.

      The dew point is still high at 17C.
