Passport Application
at 11:42 10 Jul 2020

I just had to apply for a new passport. I was a bit worried because papers have reported long waits for a new passport and the passport office have also said it might take longer than usual due to CV19.

Two weeks from application to delivery. Pretty darn quick all things considered. It might be because it was a straightforward renewal, done online with a code for a digital photo from a photo booth.

And it is a blue one, or black, not quite sure which, midight blue lets say. Actually it is quite beautiful, though not nice enough to give up visa free travel through Europe and the ruin of our economy. But still nice.

Just seen the MP for the Ipswich-Shotley-Sudbury Golden Triangle

At the butcher's. Childishly I couldn't resist the urge to make a few secret w@nker signs at him. Only they might not have been as secret as I thought because he glared at me. The sort of glare you might give to someone who had just made a w@nker sign at you.

My boss, who is from Bristol, know's Jeremy Goss' dad. They sometimes play golf together.

I have been pouring scorn on the Nodger's fetish with that goal since I found out.

Interesting business move by the UK government
at 12:50 4 Jul 2020

https://www.gov.uk/government/news/uk-government-to-acquire-cutting-edge-satelli

OneWeb filed for bankruptcy partially due to financiers panicking about CV19, and the government seems to have taken the chance to grab a bit of satellite technology.

Not sure how if will directly benefit thr UK since the manufacturing bases are all elsewhere and difficult to move, without putting OneWeb further behind SpaceLink. Interesting move nevertheless.

Controversial footy opinion: who said it?
at 11:30 4 Jul 2020

Some of you will definitely know, for those who want to guess, it is someone very smart indeed.

"I’m fairly sure that England’s World Cup winning football team from 1966 would struggle against the current first team of my beloved Ipswich Town, at the time of writing languishing in the third tier of the English leagues."

Got to say, smart as the writer is, I thik he is wrong, oh so wrong. I can't see Chambers matching up to Moore, Holy is not a patch on Banks, even given the improvements in training methods since the. Give them the 1966 ball and the current Town team wouldn't get within a country mile of them.

Some disconcerting thoughts on Town and time
at 10:11 27 Jun 2020

At Town we have a regular rythm of winning something every 19 years, since Sir Alf's might triumph in 1962.

We won the Football league Championship on 28th April 1962
19 years 22 days later on 22nd May 1981 we won the UEFA Cup
19 years 7 days later on 29th May 2000 we won promotion back to the premier league

The two Pauls broke that model by getting us relegated 19 years later, strictly speaking I suppose it was a little under 19 years since we went down with a whimper very early,

Also in the season that we won the football league, Liverpool got promoted from the second tier

Finally, here's a date for your diary, on 2nd June 2021 the same amount of time will have passed since our last game in the Premier League as there was between winning the Football League and the UEFA Cup.

Along with Steven Robinson (Motherwell), Ian Barraclough (NI kids) and Tommy Wright (St Johnston).

I reckon he has a decent chance of getting it.

A triad of Nodge, Bournemouth and West Ham all going down would be a flipping delight. I do hope Villa can find something extra to help make that happen.

Anyone planning on giving Times Radio a listen?

Times Radio is due to go live at 6am next Monday. Sounds like it could be an interesting alternative to Radio 4. I shall certainly be giving it a blast on Sundays when R4 turns into a Christian network.
