Alton water is now open. Cafe doing taekaways, toilets open, car park open.

8.2 miles track, couple of testing climbs but largely flat with some lovely views of the water. Plenty of walkers too, is a shared track/path.

Also, the Harwich harbour feŕry is Fri to Mondays only for June.

Think I have finally sussed out tesco home deliveries. They have slots for the whole week beginning June 15 free now. Am guessing they release a week at a time on a Monday?

Anyhow, get in now and you'll get a slot and can amend it nearer the time. Doubt they'll last long as is the first home delivery I've seen free in 10 weeks.

Watching skynews on the American riots

They just reported an SUV drew up and someone fired on protesters in Detriot and killed a protester.

Looks like things could escalate even more. There's an awful lot of pent up anger clearly and it doesn't seem to be going away...

Aldi gave just got their cycling special buys in. Dirt cheap, good value stuff from gloves, tops, shorts, and some bikes bits too.

Lidl's was last week - happy to recommend their tops - they zip all the way down which is proper handy when it's hot :-)

So yesterday I caught the Ferry from Shotley to Harwich (he also links Felixstowe to Harwich)

Poor bloke is on 10% of usual trade and is running at a loss. He is hoping it picks up but is clearly unsustainable at present. He qualifies for no govt help (cant remember why)

So if you having a long cycle his ferry makes for a lovely way of extending your ride.

Do check if he running as he said he might shut for a few weeks if it doesnt pick up. Lots of easy social distancing, I was the only one on it yesterday :-(

How to priorise
at 06:47 28 May 2020

So lets pretend the Scunny chairman is right and next season goes ahead with limited number of fans at the start.

So say we can only get 6k fans in. How should we decide who gets a seat assuming we cant get all our ST holders in?

Family groups first? This would enable you to squeeze more in as they could sit next to each other.

Younguns first? Less vulnerable than the oldies.

Length of ST ownership? Rewards loyalty but is hardly a younguns fault they are young. And the oldies are more vulnerable.

Thoughts? Is our role to even consider who is/isnt more vulnerable?

Cheers for the help.

My favourite question. At the World cup in 2010, England goalie Robert Green helped destroy a nation's dreams when fumbling a weak shot into the net in England's opener. But where did he start his career?

So BJ is on in 25 mins time.

Put your credibility on public display with a prediction...

I reckon he will ask the civil servant bloke (Sedwell?) to do a quick assessment of whether DC broke any rules. Gives BJ a way out without losing face.

What u predict?
