That Derby result
at 21:44 4 Jul 2020

Didn't even know it was being raced today. I missed all the publicity.
The result suggests the fancied horses didn't know either.
1st Serpentine 25-1
2nd Khalifa Sat 50-1
3rd Amhran Na Bhfiann 66-1

Tote paid 56,000-1 if you had the 1-2-3.

Awesome rock track

I've had this rock song in my head for days and I couldn't quite place it.

I'm sooooo embarrased.

Trump lie undone
at 17:30 2 Jul 2020

He claimed that he now lives in Washington DC not New York, so the New York courts couldn't persue a case against him and they should throw out the case.

On a recent call to the nation’s governors, President Donald Trump urged them to “dominate” streets full of protesters, adding that as a New Yorker he was especially appalled at unrest in his home town. "I live in Manhattan" he said.

Your flies are undone Donald.

Bournemouth v Palace
at 20:09 20 Jun 2020

BBC1 HD has the crowd noise which is OK.
Red button doesn't have HD so although it's intresting to hear the players shouts I don't like the picture.
HD rules.

And why has Paddypower got its name upside down on the pitchside advertising?

2-0 Palace now.

Trumps behind in the polls because...
at 23:17 16 Jun 2020

...according to Sean Spicer, Trump supporters won't admit to their family and friends that they are going to vote for Trump because they're embarassed.
That doesn't explain why they would mislead someone who they've never met who has phoned them up to ask them how they'd vote but hey ho.

A study done by Dutch scientists has discovered that Vitamins K1 and K2 seems to be a prevention against Covid-19 more serious symptons.

It's found in Cheese.
Dutch & French varieties especially.
I was wondering if any of you would object to eating cheese as I can't remember if any of you are fans of cheese.

Trevor Noah vid
at 10:48 30 May 2020

This is a vid of Trevor Noah commenting on the George Floyd killing.
It's not funny like his Daily Show output and it's not meant to be.
It's his thoughts on American society and it's attitude towards Black people.



Edit: the link doesn't work for some reason.

Go on Youtube and search Trevor Noah George Floyd

It's well worth watching

Corbyn / Starmer
at 13:40 29 Apr 2020

Maybe it's just me but I have seen a difference in how the left-wing media ie Independent/Guardian are reporting Corbyn and Starmer.
Corbyn was described as asking, enquiring, criticising whereas Starmer attacks and slams.
I suppose they disliked Corbyn but like Starmer and that is why the reporting is different.
The Tories are nothing without the right-wing media shouting their corner and Corbyn was let down by the left-wing media which was never there for him.
Shame.

Stirling Moss
at 00:16 13 Apr 2020

Sadly he's gone too.
An urban myth I heard was that he got stopped for speeding.
The officer said to him "Who do you think you are, Stirling Moss?"
He replied "Well actually, I am Stirling Moss"
.. and the copper let him off.
Believe that as you will.
When you're a legend, people will make stuff like that up - which just makes you more of a legend.

I watched the first 10 minutes and thought this is sooo boring.
WIth no fixtures there's no excitement.
I guess there's more important things to consider at the mo.
Can't wait for the season to re-start, as only then will my love for the game be rekindled.

I have the Lurgy
at 11:11 29 Mar 2020

Oh well, c'est la vie.
Been feeling a bit different since Friday.
So far, warm cheeks, a few aches, dry cough and feeling a bit stoned although I haven't had a smoke in 2020. Not much of temperature and no headache.
It seems to go away for a few hours making me think I'm over it and then it come backs.
The symptoms are mild so far and if they stay like this then I've dodged a bullet as I have emphysema. My breathing is fine.
I have only gone out twice in the last 2 weeks so I'm wondering when I caught it and how long my incubation period was.
I have 10 cans of soup so that's my go to food at the mo.
Will post tomorrow with an update.

Police State? (n/t)
at 00:18 25 Mar 2020

This is the closest we've got to a Police state in my lifetime.
I always feared the Tories would do something like this.
Yet, they've given police unprecedented powers to arrest and fine people and it's a joke. People are just doing their thing and ignoring the authorities.
The Tories can't seem to do anything properly.

A different virus.
at 10:38 19 Mar 2020

I bought a new laptop 2 weeks ago.
I knocked my screwdriver (vodka and orange) over and it flooded the keyboard.
The fault code was related to the BIOS so the PC repair shop said why waste money on a 5 year old PC with no guarantee they could fix it when I could buy a brand new one with an SSD.
I started off with Windows update, getting the latest software and drivers to ensure the PC would operate at max efficiency.
I then loaded my favourite freesoft (Mozilla Firefox, Avast free antivirus etc.).
Then to my games.
GOG has my games in my account and as I have already bought them I get to download them free again.
I missed something because Chrome downloaded too. I didn't ask for it so I uninstalled it.
What I didn't know was that a bit of Malware had downloaded too.
It's called SAntivirus.
This POS created multiple SVCHOST activities and gobbled up all my memory causing my PC to crash every half-hour.
When I discovered it I googled what it was and how to remove it and this is where the sneaky stuff starts.
Some of the solutions on how to remove it were written by the same malware company which led to hiding the malware on the PC. Others suggested downloading freesoft to check and remove all malware but this was more malware.
I found a geek guide which was very comprehensive and involved REGEDIT and intensive surgery on the registry. One of the steps was to disconnect from the internet because this clever bit of malware actually reinstalled itself when I ran the Uninstall wizard by connecting to the Internet and downloading a file that would activate at start-up.

I now have a clean PC but this experience has been frustrating.
Anybody else had similar?

I believe Corrie and EastEnders are filmed 6 weeks in advance.
I wonder if they will do some story lines about the Coronavirus.
I also wonder if they'll stop recording shows for a while because of the virus.

Which leaves TV with having to show repeats and films.
They'll be showing stuff like that anyway to fill in for the sport programmes lost.
With Dave and UKGold having all the repeats already I wonder what we'll get.

Kids smarter than adults?
at 10:55 10 Mar 2020

In Wuhan, China where the Coronavirus has meant kids are stuck at home, the authorities have made kids use a homework app called Ding Talk.
Do kids like doing homework? No.
A feature of the App Store is that any app that has a really low rating gets removed from the store so all the kids gave it the lowest rating of 1.
And yes, the app was no longer available for kids to download.
