I'm losing the will to live.  Once again, for those at the back. The main snow risk isn't until 4pm onwards. 4pm onwards. 4pm onwards. 4pm onwards. 4pm onwards. The colde

So the cold is almost at an end with a steady thaw expected over the coming days. As such the region will be one again. May I just say that the last week has been a real experience and I must tha

Some people need to grow up. If you want to bicker and snipe do it via PM. Because the rest of us don’t want to know.

Just booked my flights to Vietnam for the end of May. If it’s anything like last year, the temperature will be in the high 30’s with DP’s in the high 20’s. Love that oppressive heat ??

Sounds like a sauna no thanks! I’m good with heat but I hate humidity. Drains the life out of you. Might not be such an issue for you.... if I did go to a tropical country I’d go in cooler months. However, near the equator it’s pretty much constant heat & humidity throughout year, well you do have the dry and wet seasons. There’s probably quite a difference in the climate from south and north Vietnam.

I love the heat. The only difference between north and south is in the winter months. From late April onwards, the whole country is hot and humid.

Well you did say it Lass, that GFS is the best model since sliced sausage.:rofl:

Here we see a representation of a Ruskie sausage thats been been sliced up and ready for storage for a soviet era family, come to think of it they are probably going to need vests too so you keep knitting them vests....:unsure2:

It would be just brilliant if we could get a streamer event like the one 10 days ago! I am getting excited for the child of the beast. It could be an epic weekend  for a few reasons next weekend:D

To be honest I would take Ireland losing to England  next weekend if we got a beasterly instead. Lassie clean your bucket for two hours again. I'm convinced it did the trick last time.

Morning all,:hi:

Would just like to post the following: A thread I've created, for a Cheltenham Festival Tipping Competition. Would really like some entries, from our region.

"Morning all,

Well the Cheltenham Festival, is almost upon us. I worked in the Bookmaking Industry, for around 28 years. No other meeting gave me the "buzz", that Cheltenham week did. The last 12 years of my career were spent with spent with Sunderland Bookmakers, in their Credit Office, in Croydon. I ran various fantasy, tipping competitions on many different sports.

Racing ( Cheltenham, Liverpool ( Grand National meeting ), Epsom Derby, Royal Ascot, Glorious Goodwood, even Longchamp's, Arc de Triomphe meeting and Breeder's Cup meetings, in the US.

Football: UEFA Champions League, European  Int. Ch'ships and World Cups.

Golf: The 4 major championships plus the unofficial 5th major ( the TPC at Sawgrass )

And some cricket tournaments.

Would like to recreate the Cheltenham Tipping Competition here, for members here. It's simple to enter. Just select one horse, in each of the 7 races, on each day, Tues 13th March to Fri 16th March ( Inc,) A few simple rules below:

1. You will be placed a "virtual" £1 each way, on each selection, at the horses, returned starting price. Your stakes will be returned, in your "virtual"  winnings. E.g A 10/1 winner will give you a profit of £14.50, £11 for the win and £3.50, for the place part. A 20/1 winner, will give you a "virtual" win of £27, £21 for the win and £6, for the place part. A 16/1, placed horse, will give you £5, etc,  etc.

2. Losing stakes will NOT be deducted, from your total. Your "virtual" profit, will accumulate, throughout the week.

3. Place terms will be as follows: 4 or less runners (All up to win), never known such a small field to occur, at the Festival. 5,6,7 runners 1/4 the odds, 1st and 2nd. Races with 8 or more runners, 1/4 the odds 1st,2nd,3rd. Handicaps of 16 to 21 runners, 1/4 odds 1st,2nd,3rd,4th. Handicaps of 22 or more runners, 5th place will also be paid, 

4. Any dead-heat occurring, will NOT, result in your stakes, being split!! ( Can't remember the last dead-heat, at the Cheltenham Festival.)

5. Rule 4 deductions of less than 15p in the £, will NOT be enforced.

6. You must post up your selections by 1 pm, on a daily basis. You DON'T have to give all your selections, for the whole meeting, by 1 pm on Tues. 13th. 

If you can "settle" ( calculate ), your own selections bets, that would be a big help. But I will be keeping my own record of your selections and will post up the current standings, at the end of each days racing.  Obviously, there will not be any prize money, if you win, you'll have the honour of being Net Weather Cheltenham Tipping Champion!! Surely, that's enough. Obviously, your entry will cost you nothing, either. Just a bit of form studying time!! I'm going to try and get my son and daughter to enter, as well. They both worked with me for, Sunderland's.

Really do hope I manage to generate, a bit of interest"

So, if any of you would like to enter, just post your selections, on each day of the Festival, on the Cheltenham Tipping thread, in the Sports Zone. Would really like to see some entries, from our region.

Hope you all enjoy, Mother's Day.

Regards,

Tom.

Morning gang! 

The cold predicted in a week or so is starting to gain some traction expect the form to get busy again! Unreal charts churned out this morning on the GFS and something I have never witnessed having such deep cold so late on 

On to today and certainly a risk of a few flashes of lightning almost anywhere the breaks in the cloud over the channel may aid in convection once the sun gets things warming up

Mine have laid two more eggs, but they're not clever enough to make clothing.

A nice early Spring day here and feeling mild. Some breaks in the cloud with sunshine coming through, would like a lot more of that! The grey skies are depressing. Happy Mother’s Day :)

Afternoon, are people really serious on the model forum getting excited possibly more cold weather, why??? Yes I like the excitement of snow but In Winter, I want some warmth now, our summers are crap as it is so if we don’t get any warmth in Spring then this year will be very short lived to sit in the garden. Rant over!

Well maybe colder is still on the cards but no Beasterly 2, the son of the Beast from the east SQ for now anyway, although all is not lost. If it turns mild with more sunshine, I know you would prefer that now going forwards, I would be happy with that but not the halfway house like cold rain, yuk!

Happy Mothers day everyone!:give_rose:
