Watch Ashes after work with a few beers
Tomorrow fly home early and see the family
Sunday same as Saturday, the highlight may be the roast beef or reading the Sunday Times

Pretty quiet, boring and perfect

Coaching the U12 hurlers at the county final. :thumbup:

Then, depending on the result, get the club banned from Supermacs.

"This will fool that Me109 pilot swooping down on me"

Dad hid behind an oak tree in Earlham Park with a member of his staff. The bullets are apparently still there.

He was a proper gymnast. Used to hop up stairs on one hand.

There's also a pic of him with a lady on his outstretched arms. He trained on the rings and could hold a crucifix for at least 30 secs.

That's a proper dad for anyone.

Fri - Looking after kids tonight
Sat - Park Run, dinner with friends tomorrow night - 2 of whom are Masters of Wine and supplying the bottles so that might be interesting - may have to have the odd slug.
Sun - Taking the boy to climb his first hill. Well, Arthurs Seat actually, but still, a bit of a walk for a 3 year old...

It's a hell of a commitment, my wife is thinking about doing it in a couple of years when the kids are a bit older - she has done all the other stuff up to that. Jeremy Lithgow is my mate, and his mate who's name I don't know - Jeremy qualified last year.

**WELL** after my time - we sold the business in 2004. My boss, who is a prominent MW stayed on with the buying company (indeed I think he was part of the reason they wanted the business). I was redundant and changed horses....

It was a fun thing to do, and perhaps cos I was doing it for fun I failed it. One of the evening practices we did we were faced with a flight of 3 red wines, blind, and were told that they had one thing in common. Old 'old word style'. Even when we knew what they were we struggled:
Chateauneuf du Pape, Chianti and Rioja
know what the common factor is?

Pfft, I can distinguish between red and white wine from sight alone.

Incidentally, I have a decent collection of Châteauneuf du Pape from attending la Véraison for several consecutive years - I would quite happily drown in the stuff.

The number of wines that use that, or similar, have more or less wiped out cork.

But I don't know the answer.

I do know that several French wine producers are experimenting with stelvin v cork. But it will take quite a while to get an answer. Years.
