  1. World Cup 2018

    Were going home ....France v Croatia final
  2. World Cup 2018

    A little late but definitely something to celebrate - England are in the semi finals of the World Cup I cant think of a better world cup for excitement, skill and drama than this one. Every game apart from a few have been wonderfully entertaining. I'm glad we're not the country that put Russia out and glad we are not meeting them in the semi final for many reasons. France v Belgium 10th July England v Croatia 11th July The winners play on the 15th. Its coming home its coming home..........

  6. what is everyone doing?

    Got cooked today at Trent Bridge watching Nottinghamshire v Worcestershire in a county game (The great game of cricket if your wondering ). Factor 30, sun hat and copious amounts of fluids got me through. It's a four day game and I will be doing it all again tomorrow on the final day. Unfortunately England are playing Belgium tomorrow in the World Cup, which means we will have to leave the ground early.The national football team just trumps my local cricket team, but it is close.

  9. Office-Speak

    And undeliverables Management at my office often use these phrases "We are where we are" and "It is what it is" which always make me smile.
  10. For me there is something about bird song that unless your listening you will miss. Most days when I'm walking late afternoon I do my blackbird whistle and I get a 2 second silence and then a cacophony. I whistle a repeat of some of the challenges I get and then I'm belittled by not being able to match the complex songs they sing. Smile every time

    Warsaw because it's a capital city that I have never visited and a country where so many have come to live here.
  12. Poetic Wanderings

    One for the royal wedding Let me not to the marriage of true minds admit impediments. Love is not love which alters when it alteration finds, or bends with the remover to remove: Oh, no! It is an ever-fixed mark. That looks on tempests and is never shaken; it is the star to every wandering bark, whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken. Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks within his bending sickle's compass come; love alters not with his brief hours and weeks, but bears it out even to the edge of doom. If this be error and upon me proved, I never writ, nor no man ever loved. Sonnet 116 - by William Shakespeare

    Taiwan a tiny country taking on the might of China and a place not usually on the tourist list.

  15. Bargains

    I just thought it would be good if people see a book that is a bargain to post on this thread. I always check the Amazon monthly and daily deals and often see books that I love or are interested in for silly prices.I only buy digital from Amazon but am very interested if the paperback/hardback is available for a bargain at a bookstore. Since Amazon supports this website, must be good all round. Amazon UK for me so may differ for other countries. Can you buy the digital book from another country?
