    Turk Thrust reacted to eddie in Holiday Plans 2019   
    Yes, we used to be annual grockles, and love Mevagissey. We will definitely be going to the 'lost gardens' and the Eden Project (we last went there the day Steve Harmison clobbered Ricky Ponting on the head, so that's 14 years ago), and probably have a day conger fishing as well. Other than that, it'll be days out on the bus (Newquay, St Ives etc) - one of the benefits of being a pensioner, of course - and a few beers.

    Turk Thrust got a reaction from ariotofmyown in Holiday Plans 2019   
    For me it's a mix of a business trip and holiday. I will be taking a group of Nigerian Court of Appeal judges to Kuala Lumpur to expose them to modern ways of working in courts (Malaysia and Singapore are in the forefront of electronic records)  That's for a week so I will stay on for an extra week and mosey on down to my favourite place Singapore to have a Singapore Sling in the Long Bar at Raffles. Fly back to Nigeria for a week and then home. Not forgetting to buy some expensive perfume for the Bolukbashi.  It's a tough life....

    Olives. Used to detest them but then I had an epiphany and now love them. But green ones not the revolting black ones!

    I would like to think this wouldn’t ever happen again to be honest, and that we would never sell Susan, not for that paltry fee.

    I remain a happy clapper, but l now fear we aren’t quite good enough to make that final push.  14 points from 12 leagues games in 2019 is not a good stat, but perhaps one performance (today) will kickstart us. Mount and Lawrence need to bring something positive to the party.
    l am going to try something different today.  Can’t remember when l last didn’t follow a game one way or another, but have decided today l am going to establish radio/internet silence, and simply turn on at 5 to 5 for the results. I am trying to eradicate the feelings of hope and despair that seem to have been impacting me year to date.

    My favourite couplet is by Sir John Betjeman, poet laureate, lover of buildings and railways, voyeur, and fetishist. Sounds unlikely but true  
    "I often think that I would like, to be the saddle on your bike"

    Worked in an office that was predominantly staffed by women. One of them stuck a framed Purple Ronnie limerick up in the men's loo which read as follows...
    Men's Bitz
    Men's bits are sometimes like bananas,
    And sometimes like shrivelled up grapes,
    But no matter how they try,
    They just can't deny,
    That they come in the silliest shapes.
    In 'retaliation' and assuming they'd take it in the same spirit as we took their little ditty, I scrawled a response which I printed out and stuck on the door of the ladies'. It read...
    Ronnie's Revenge
    A man's appendage,
    Be it small or large,
    Tis true, is seldom a beauty,
    But a woman down there,
    To be perfectly fair,
    Can hardly be called a cutie.
    Two hours later I was fired for gross misconduct and unceremoniously marched out of the office. Shortest 'career' in poetry ever!

    Away in Nigeria at the moment. There as an observer for the elections. Now it's been put back a week. So I have to stay on in this 5 star hotel for an extra week doing nothing!  I've been going abroad (mainly African countries,some to the Caribbean, a few to the Middle East) for a long time - almost 50 visits. Always treated each visit as an adventure but there's nothing like coming home and the thrill of seeing from the plane lush green field instead of the straw/reddish coloured earth of Africa.

    Words of an American Soldier about our Army .... "Those Brits are a strange old race, they show affection by abusing each other, will think nothing of casually stopping in the middle of a fire fight for there "brew up" and eat food that I wouldn't give to a dying dog! but f++k me, I would rather have one British squaddie on side than a entire battalion of spetznaz!!!... Why? Because the British are the only people in the world who when the chips are down and there seems like no hope left, instead of getting sentimental or hysterical, will strap on there pack, charge there rifle, light up a smoke and calmly and wryly grin "well are we going then you banker??"

    Am watching the game in one of the bars in the Nikon Luxury hotel along with a gaggle of locals. A different game on each of the TVs. Got a big bottle of Star and a bowl of chin chin. Upstairs is a bar which I misheard as the Horse bar. Apparently it's the whores bar.
