    2013 / 2014 Premier League Discussion

    Definitely, I knew by half time that it was looking a low scoring game with 0-0 the greatest probability.

    Bit of an anti-climax for me, but oh well. It was a free bet. Bit of fun and a few drinks. Good craic.

    2013 / 2014 Premier League Discussion

    I'm not much of a football fan, but today I'd like Southampton to win 2-1 and it'll net me the Sun's predictor game £6000. My other 3 teams came up yesterday with the correct scores. Hull v Cardiff 1-1, Sunderland v Arsenal 1-3 and Tottenham v Norwich 2-0. Although if nobody has got all 4 correct I still get a share of 1000. But, it's my birthday today, so maybe it'll be a nice wee present.
  4. Last winter wasn't bad at all for snow and cold, started off slow but picked up and March was crazy for snowfall and depth in local areas.

    Whats after death?

    Hopefully I won't know for a while yet, but I don't expect anything.....so it'll be a surprise if a big sign comes up saying "Level 2" and I'm a reborn millionaire. I suppose it's better though to get busy living rather than ponder over death.

    Wind Turbines wiping out bats and birds in USA

    I don't believe the air-pressure theory but rather just that they get caught up/hit by the blades. http://www.midwestenergynews.com/2012/03/01/study-turbine-blades-not-air-pressure-kill-bats/

    Wind Turbines wiping out bats and birds in USA

    I seen this argument somewhere before but it was put down as a myth. Generally most animals tend to stay away from large moving man made objects.
  8. Nights getting markedly early now. I'm starting to get excited about the prospects of winter 2013/14.

    Wasps getting nasty!

    Found this quite an interesting way to describe their late season stinging spree. http://www.independent.co.uk/environment/nature/drunk-wasps-may-attack-us-warns-red-cross-8798272.html
  10. Last day of summer 2013 and Autumn starting in less than 14 hours. Soon we'll be hunting down on those cold winter spells and looking for some snow. I wonder if we'll see a stormy Autumn for a change.
  11. Nothing too interesting of late happening, slightly on the dry side with a mixed bag of weather. Autumn hot on the heels and possibly a windy affair coming up later next week.
  12. Some angry clouds around the last few days in the cooler airmass, but no storms near me. The cooler nights are bliss at least. Maybe some light at the end of the tunnel in a weeks time, hoping something drier and clearer turns up by months end for the Portrush airshow. Maybe if a few of you are making the trip we could arrange a small meet-up?
  13. In the many million years of the Earths existence I'm sure we'll have had a similar pattern to what this and recent summers have seen, problem is, many weren't that interested in recording it, or didn't know how. We haven't had great summers, but we shouldn't expect to have them in abundance either.
  14. Probably one of the best and most photogenic funnels I have seen in a long time if ever. Looks like it'd have been a wedge had it touched down.
  15. Been watching Saturdays weather avidly in hope that it turns out good as I'm taking the little minx daughter to the Airshow in Newcastle. Looks to be alright so far, mainly sunny with a few scattered showers. It's her Birthday week so my wallet will take a battering but at least I get to see the Airshow also.
