Last I heard was 170 for 1. Just watched the news and the showed 3 English wickets going down. Thought it was highlights from the first game.
220 all out and England 40 odd for three. that was some last session.

Went to the shop that is in the Old Chevalier club premises today. It's a rather splendid European supermarket now. Very clean, in-house butcher etc.
They have an excellent beer selection from around the world. Got myself some Russian beer that we were drinking in Moldova. ¬£1.69 a bottle for a pint bottle. If any of you like that sort of thing well worth a look. Car parking round the back.
Had peanut wotsit type snacks in there too (reason I actually went in).
If anyone is interested.
|Football programmes that you think are worth some money or a little bit unusual|

I have the Ipswich v Barcelona Programme from the UEFA cup game when we won 3-0. It is signed by Mick Mills and Johan Cryuff (both captains). I wonder if that is actually worth anything?
My mum's hairdressers husband was best mates with Brian Talbot who got Cryuff to sign it for him and it was given to me. Mick MIlls opened the shop next door to my parents off licence on Foxhall Road and I got him to sign the programme too.
Anyone else? football programmes are actually worth s0d all. Mostly less then the cover price.
|¬£10 to watch the ressers?|

Admission is on the door at ¬£10 for adults, ¬£7 for over-65s, ¬£5 for under-18s and ¬£3 for under-14s, while under-11s can get in for free.
That's rather steep.

I heard someone call her TRESemm√© the other day and that made me chuckle. Now I can't help thinking that every time someone mentions her name :)

How has Grant from Everton been performing? Has he been playing?

some you kindly donated to the TEECH project I am off to in Moldova to install toilets into a school in a small village in Moldova. Just wanted to let you know that we are off. Your donations will make a difference to these kids.
I am missing the Norwich game and doubt anyone knows a bar in Moldova that will be showing the game :) Although it is 58p a pint and decent beer so that will soften the blow.
Cheers for your support from my on-line blue family.
Up the Towen.

Finally got around to going last night. And you were not wrong. Food was fantastic. They have done a great job with the restaurant. The staff were very attentive and the chap who owns it is a great guy. Told us all about the history and his personal history in the Gurkhas. Can't recommend the place highly enough, we will certainly be going back. The Gurkha beer is a treat too.
¬£15 a head for starter, main and dessert. If you want more they just bring it to you at no extra charge. Not that we needed more. Added the spice that they got from Nepal to give it a bit more kick.
For anyone interested in the Gurkha story the owner has a website www.gurkhastories.com
If you are in Ipswich and fancy a curry a little bit different give it a try. It is authentic Nepalese rather than English Bangladeshi curry and bloody tasty it is too.
Cheers for the review Lucan.
