  1. Yesterday at 3.00pm a warm 25c and sunny on our last day in Fuerteventura; today 11c, but feels more like 5c as i try to acclimatise after 10 days on hols.
  2. BOOOOMMMM!! Just arrived at Fuert airport for home flight and just checked the 4.40 - nice!
  3. Managed to place a couple of phone bets from here: 1.35 Ascot - Sands of Mali win only 4.40 Ascot - Escobar and Glen Shiel, both win only E/W double Sands of Mali and Escobar Best of luck to all today. Hope some of us empty the bookies' satchells!
  4. Well guys, here are my selections for the 4.40 tomorrow. We leave the rented bungalow (Fuerteventura) at 4.00pm tomorrow; thankfully the owners let us stay until late afternoon, so i'm hopeful of watching some of the races and may try and sneak a phone bet if the betting co doesnt realise i'm in foreign climes 4.40 Ascot 1. Glen Shiel 2. Mitchum Swagger 3. Escobar Tom, Presume you need a NAP for tomorrow? If so, Advertise in the 1.35. Best of luck to all
  5. Champions Day trixie: 1.35 Advertise 3.20 Benbatl 4.00 Magical Double: 2.10 Stradivarius and Kew Gardens 2.45 Star Catcher and Anapurna STAKE OPTION - Option 2 - 4 x 25p EACH WAY Doubles (2x2).
  6. Watched the vid earlier and the waster on top of the tube train kicked out first, so when dragged off was given a slap or two. I mean, who decides to go to the East end of London (home of the Hammers) to hack off locals trying to get to work? Should've chosen Kensington tube or similar; probably would've had an easier ride, so to speak Anyway if plod were doing their job a lot of the disruption the last week or so wouldnt have escalated. Our very own plod here in Bristol actually assisted the climate crew setting up their pink boat road block the other month, before Bristol's week of disruption - i am not making this up.
  7. 112%, but aint gotta clue what it means Guess if you are under 100% you are some way to reaching "acceptable" level. Recycling we are brill, as our local Tory council set up separate collections and different boxes, bags a few years ago. Bristol City council 'next door' is Labour and their recycling is a mess compared to South Glos. But... Heating and water heating we aint v good i'm afraid and as for flights/annum, well,....the less said about that . Gas central heating and gas heats our water, from a 25 year old Baxi boiler. Thing is the old Baxis are super reliable, whereas new condensing or combis are v unreliable and built to break down frequently. I've been considering a new all-electric heating system from Sweden, which is meant to be top notch, and v environmentally friendly but it is expensive and i have concerns re power cuts, esp in Winter, when you need the heating to be on. Some kind of government financial grant/incentive to switch to a more energy efficient system would be beneficial, but that costs the taxpayer.
  8. And allegedly some of them are being paid by XR funds. Today is about disrupting The City of London financial sector; one of the biggest tax giving sectors that helps fund the NHS and Welfare state. Go figure.
  9. Golden rule is: Dont trust The Turks. No apology required from me.
  10. The issue with American involvement or not always creates a "damned if they do (interfer) or damned if they dont (interfer)". They cant win with some people. I'm afraid it's all about strategic importance when it comes to Turkey, plus a Western concern about that strategically located country maybe one day becoming 'fully Islamic", so to speak. 40+ years ago they illegally invaded Cyprus and no one did anything about it, and they still illegally occupy Northern Cyprus. I signed a promise declaration in Nicosia in year 2000, when on honeymoon with my wife, to never visit Turkey or Northern Cyprus whilst the Turks occupy N Cyprus. 2nd largest army in NATO i believe. But agree what they are doing and planning to do with the Kurds is bang out of order, and like you say Russia is standing by to fill a power vacuum....again. Sad times, and worrying times.
  11. No luck in the Cesarewitch today but managed to sneak a phone bet ( couldnt access online from here) on the 2.40 York on Aberama Gold at 12/1.

  17. Not on yet. Must admit, was tempted the last couple of evenings, but resisted as with these temps it gets too warm too quickly, and then upstairs for bedtime it is far too warm. Plus, we're off to warmer climes tom morn (Fuerteventura), so will consider for last 10 days of October when we've returned.
  18. The same teachers who'll be marking some of their pupils down as "unauthorised absence", when those kids are taken on hols by parents in term time
  19. Ah right.....result to personal stuff. Hey ho...not unexpected.
  20. Maybe they should protest in those countries where campaigners are being executed, or the countries that are making nil progress on this issue, but do you really see XR campaign progress in driving a non-taxed, de-commissioned fire engine, spraying a building, street and one innocent bystander with fake blood? Will that, and today's disruption to people's working lives really achieve increased support for their cause?
  21. Dreadful forum as you keep reminding everyone.
  22. And Mel B...that'll obviously boost XR support
  23. Agreed. The plonks cant even control a fire hose spraying fake blood, or bother to tax the said vehicle - naughty people. Plus, in an era where parts of London are blighted by knife gang warfare, XR action has, and will continue to use, huge police resource. Meanwhile people going about their daily lives to earn a crust to pay their rent, mortgage, buy food, support families/friends, etc are having their lives disrupted by this 'alliance' of the rich liberals and the great unwashed, supported by Brand Khan (in London anyway). Meanwhile back in Chez BB our recycling is sorted, plastics in one bag, bottles, jars, cans in another, paper/cardboard in another, food in another - phew!! Must remind our neighbour to be a love to ensure it is all put out on the pavement Friday for collection, as we take off on our 11th flight this year on Wednesday. Adios
  24. If the race hadnt been the Arc Gosden would not have raced him on that heavy ground; would've pulled him out early this morning (hope that makes sense).
