    Getting my ESTA approval. For no reason whatsoever and despite having had 2 previous ESTA's my head panicks when doing the application (probably because they now ask for social media details) and the Pending status doesn't help. So a nice little party when it changes to approved.

    That would be an ace reason though. Better if they way wait until you arrive in the States then march you away from the desks and into the interview room "So, lets talk Mark Rankine...what did my Shabba EVER do to you?

    They'd get bored of talking about the 1994/95 season and the logic of that Player of the Year award eventually and they'd just let me in.

    Even better if I can find a compilation somewhere of him slicing the ball down the line, straight out of play. Half a dozen times a game, minimum.

    Playing on the right wing knocking the ball past a full back on the outside in an attempt to skin him only to find out the full back was faster than him, every, single, time. Still at least he was determined to find a full back that was slower than him, didnt find one but 10 out of 10 for consistency.

    I'm sure Gordon Cowans was Traoreesque compared to him.

    Told a few people this in the RL on Friday, but I'm still happy for my niece.....

    Charlotte, my niece, is doing her 3 year paramedic training in Bristol (in the most beautiful campus I've ever seen, but that's a different story). Anyway, she did her first 12 hour shift on Thursday and on her very first shift, very first call, she delivered a baby girl! Some paramedics go many years without delivering a baby, and she was involved in her very first callout!!!!

A little ride on my motorbike in the sunshine this morning, followed by an afternoon with all my kids and grandkids celebrating my lads birthday, todays result, and this evening a few pints of 'Slumbering Monk' with friends watching/listening to one of my fav local covers bands.....and I've still got motd to look forward to. Life for all of us can be very shit at times, make sure you enjoy the good bits my friends

    None down here & there are NO local confirmed cases (& no one needs those any more than usual anyway)

    Don't need to buy any just now, but given everyones else's actions will do so if I see some purely on the basis that I may not get another chance. That's how panic buying takes hold - doesn't need to be rational (& it's not)
    This year we are going to break up the big 6 clubs (instead of just Arsenal)

    We were down to 2 left in the house, was looking like it could have gone down to using hubbys old work socks, but then a walk to the little shop and the shelves were full.

    I only bought 8 rolls though, and no soup

    Excellent news matey
    Why they will qualify: Nuno Espirito Santo is actually a tactical genius.

    Obviously Facebook recognises that I'm a dedicated follower of fashion so they recommended this page

    https://www.dior.com/en_gb/mens-fash...5aJgWXuPty80KI

    Just have a look at those prices (bearing in mind most of my clothes come in multipacks !)

    Never mind "look at the prices" just look at the state of the "fashion"!

    I wore some weird shit in the 70's, but nothing as bad (or as expensive - over 500 for a t shirt!) as that.

    One year ago today I moved back to Blighty. It's been a funny old year, but so glad we made that move.
