BBC cricket quiz
at 20:22 18 Jul 2018

18/21 for me, started to run out of time, panicked, missed an easy one and two of the more obscure ones.

Is there a website where I can stream WC matches whilst working in Norway over the next few weeks? Assuming BBC and ITV won't allow me to watch matches from abroad.

Golden boot betting
at 13:36 17 Jun 2018

That CR7 hat-trick has made the golden boot betting pretty interesting - I'd be surprised if he won the Golden Boot outright. Eden Hazard is a 50/1, Aguero 25/1, Jesus 20/1. Denis Cheryshev, with 2 excellent goals already, is at 70/1.

Haircuts
at 18:15 5 Jun 2018

Last two haircuts I've been given have been quite obviously lop-sided. One side longer than the other, to put it bluntly.

Do you have to specify that you want both sides the same length? Would feel a bit patronising, but seems like I might have to, next time.

And what do you say, anyway, when they ask what you'd like done?

I normally just point to my hair and say you see this stuff here, what I want you to do is cut some of it off, with one of those, pointing to a pair of scissors, if there's a one in view. Gets a laugh about 20% of the time.

Also, got told today that normal people get there haircut every 6 weeks. Is this true, or was she just trying to make more £££s out of me? If it is true, why? Surely growth will be minimal in such a period?

Legal/accountant types quick question
at 11:34 2 Jun 2018

Does an invoice raised by a sole trader legally have to have an invoice number and the name and address of the sole trader on it, or is this just recommended good practice?

I'm about to query an invoice supplied by a landlord in a deposit dispute that looks like he knocked it up himself (it just has a name 'Direct Decor' and a mobile number, and no address, name, or invoice number) and I want to get my facts right - the information at the link below is good but it doesn't make clear quite what is meant by 'must'.

Neither Paul Hurst or Jack Ross are right for the club

Both of them have taken holidays in Dubai at the end of the season, which shows a profound lack of imagination and curiosity, and a startling indifference towards culture and nature.

If we were waiting on a potential appointee because he was trekking in the High Tatras, exploring Mayan ruins in Yucatan, canoeing up the Congo River, or watching a full performance of Wagner's Ring Cycle in Vienna, then that'd be something to get excited about.

But waiting for a holiday in Dubai to finish. What a world. These guys are not for me.

This why he's our man
at 14:33 17 May 2018

From the internet, so must be true.

source: (https://andrewjenkin.wordpress.com/2012/09/11/jack-the-lad/)

Nelson Mandela once claimed sport has the power to change the world. Whilst many might claim that sport is the cause of more problems in Scotland than a preventer, few would argue with its’ potential for positive change.

Former Clyde and St Mirren defender Jack Ross is one of those who see’s the game’s popularity as an opportunity to reach the country’s next generation and has taken to a career in writing children’s books to promote positive messages through the nation’s game.

Ross has written a series of books about members of a kid’s team that all go to the same school using their stories and the topic of football as a vehicle for social development.

“Football can play a huge role in communicating positive messages to children” Ross said. “Despite criticism from some, players and the game can be positive role models and no matter your opinion on football, you cannot deny that it has the ability to focus children and deliver important messages to them”.

Ross, who accumulated over 300 league appearances with five clubs, has always been a keen writer and is familiar with writing having attained an MA Honours degree in Economics from Heriot-Watt University whilst still a player. He is currently responsible for Communications at the PFA Scotland and formerly wrote a blog for the BBC but claims he always wanted to write a children’s book.

“I have always harboured ambitions to write a book of some sort and the children’s books are the result of this ambition and hopefully a platform to more future writing opportunities”.

His series kicks off with ‘Alfie and the Adventurous Winger’ which Ross claims is about trying new things. “Alfie is always trying things on the park, that’s his strength. But then he encounters a problem at school when the lunch menu changes from his favourite burger and chips to healthy food. He’s miserable at home but then his parents tell Alfie the reason he’s such a good winger at football is because he will try new things”.

Each book in the series carries a different message which children can relate to which Ross feels is important for children.
“In terms of the message from the books, it is trying to make it clear that the attributes that make you good at football (or indeed) another sport are transferrable and if applied in other areas of a child’s life can help them overcome any problems at school or at home”.
