    Before we go to Mars we have to go back to the moon.  I was to young to understand what was going on the last time we set foot on the moon, really looking forwards to seeing it in the near future.

    The last time I had brekky was in August 2019, at Botteltje in Ostend where we were attending the North Sea beer festival. The first nom of the day now is cheese and biccies when we have our mid-afternoon beer. Today's cheeses were some mousetrap cheddar, port-infused Derby cheese, a little Camembert and some very ripe stilton. The beers were a 75 cl Tripel Karmeleit, a 50 cl Schneider Weisse Aventinus and a 33 cl Orval.
    Very lovely, very civilised.

    The one thing Critchley has been crying out for is a decent googly. His stock leg-break is a ripper and he has a decent hurry-up ball (maybe a top-spinner), but I've never really seen much evidence of a wrong un. He's been a 'star in the making' for a couple of years now - perhaps this is the year we can drop 'in the making'.

    Absolutely wonderful brewery. They were the guys who originally brewed the beers for Westvleteren (St Sixtus Abbey) before they brought it in-house. St Bernardus Abt 12 is the original Westvleteren 12. When the monks started brewing it themselves, they kept the same grainbill but changed the yeast.

    I have just made a stupid error of judgement.
    I let the Memsahib have a sip of my current favourite beer, Urthel Samaranth.
    Unfortunately, she loves it.

    I'd be far more concerned if Rotherham had won.
    I'd be perfectly content with 21st at the end of the season. Obviously 'happy' isn't the right word - we are in a serious mess, but this season, staying up is everything.

    Bat first, score 350+ - you are definitely not behind the 8-ball.
    Close of play, 360-8 - I would snatch your hand off for that any day of the week.

    Agreed.
    If you win the toss, put the opposition in and they are still batting at the end of day 1, you have probably not made the right decision.

    Absolutely, if we can squeeze out another 40 runs in the morning, you couldn’t ask for much more from a Derbyshire perspective.

    I don't normally buy my booze in b&m to be honest but I found myself in there the other day and noticed a couple of interesting bottles in the beer section. First of all they do a large bottle of the Innis & Gunn bourbon barrel aged for a very good price.
    The other interesting one was "Ginger Tom", I'm a big fan of Robinson's old Tom so thought I'd try this version, especially as a redhead! Its overpoweringly gingery to be honest but it was worth trying

    I finally got to the Tesco at Long Eaton and dutifully filled my basket with large bottles of Tripel Karmaleit. 
    Picked up 4 Fruli for the ladies while I was there.
