  1. My thoughts too! I know we sometimes have to resort to less than reputable motels from time to time, but never have I not been provided with a towel!
  2. Solskjaer has done a superb job of taking United from 6th to 6th.
  3. The German radar network seems to have some recurring issues with anaprop (false radar echoes).
  4. The irony and hypocrisy of flying 5000 miles in first class to a climate change rally is off the scale. Emma Thompson what were you thinking...?

      For me to be a hypocrite, I would have to be at a protest telling people to stop flying. Think before you type, good grief. I am criticising her for joining the preachers telling us to stop flying, but flying first class to get there. I am not criticising anyone for flying, but for flying and then telling us all to stop flying. 

      And you never go abroad anywhere, right? 😂

      Flying first class makes no difference to the carbon footprint tbf. But I think rather than preaching, the best course of action is to promote the idea of doing the best you can rather than being militant about it.

      made this point on the climate thread    just another virtue signalling person  who is more interest in how they look then what happens to the planet.  At least the penny is starting to drop with people. 

  5. I regret asking to work the Easter weekend so I could get some leave back. In typical fashion, the weather is crap when I'm off next week.

      Yes, I have the joy of Friday, Saturday, Sunday night shifts aswell. I knew as soon as I was rota'd on for them it'd be glorious weather.

      I'm on nights Sunday and Monday. However, I do have a window of opportunity. I finish at 6pm on Saturday, and then onto nights on Sunday, I may be able to sneak some beer garden in.

      Hi Nick - have you seen my P.M?

  6. Strangely, a lot of the reservoirs and rivers are around or above average last time I checked.
  7. Or just wear them in the shower, apparently. But yeah, bringing plenty of clothes is a must.
  8. Annoying that Wunderground PWS sites no longer report to the nearest decimal point, what's that all about? 😞

      Why on Earth did they change it? The new site is abysmal compared to the old.

      Just like every other website "upgrade" really. Why so many companies feel the need to change a perfectly functioning website to one that is garbage I'll never know.

      A few things have already been fixed on the new layout - some progress being made. I send my data to WU but only use it to view stations that are under some extreme weather. It's great having my own site for for more detailed stuff.

  9. Nope, not in monsoon season, the heat is anything but dry!
  10. On a similar level of sin as saying "Notts Forest" that one Unsurprising we're getting tanked, had us to lose on my acca, 6/4 was printing money. Not a cat in hell's chance of us winning the play-offs, just have to hope we avoid Villa and inevitable humiliation. That's what happens when you sack a manager with no plan to replace him, other than installing the under-7s boss.
  11. Fill the ice box with ice and water bottles daily, you won't regret it!
  12. So we're going to have a higher max in Feb than through the whole of March and first half of April. Has that ever happened before?
  13. It was still 40c at midnight in Phoenix itself, the heat is something else. Thankfully the best of the action is well into the evening.
  14. Glad to see you've got the Arizona bug too, Stuart! I'm definitely doing this again one year but will likely do it solo rather than via an organised tour.
  15. In all seriousness though, credit to both Watford and Wolves. It's great to see two well supported, historic football clubs (as much as I despise one of them) treating the FA Cup with the respect it deserves. The atmosphere of a Man City v Chelsea semi-final for example wouldn't have been even 10% of what it was yesterday. Anybody who says that the cups don't matter to real football fans needs to give their head a wobble. Getting to a cup final will always trump finishing 10th in the PL, always. Maybe not to the bank balance of the football club but that's not my primary concern...
  16. We ain't got a hope in hell. Totally ballsed up this season!
  17. Have to say, fair play Dingles. Thoroughly deserved to get to the cup final after beating Liverpool and United, I just wish Albion gave a toss about the cup competitions while we were finishing in the top half. Give me a cup final over finishing 8th in the PL any day of the week.
