|Madeira (the country not the cake)|
at 15:50 25 Feb 2018
Looking at a week getaway in the summer. Being only a week, likely to stay in Europe and were considering Croatia, Malta and Lake Garda.
However, someone has mentioned Madeira. I'll be honest, I know very little about it. Has anyone been? Would you recommend it?

My wife likes to move my things and put them in obscure places - or tidy up as she calls it. She will claim to have not touched something, have no knowledge or idea where it is. And say I must have moved it. But miraculously find it at her first attempt no matter how obscure the place... almost as if she put it there.
Couldn't find something I needed this morning, assumed she did the same. We had a forthright discussion about this on the way to work (we car share).
Got to work, found it on my desk.

Pulled the office Norwich fan (makes a change from all the Leeds & Newcastle fans I’m surrounded by!) for Secret Santa.
So the question, what piece of ITFC merchandise do I pick him for him when I’m at the club shop in a few weeks. Our budget is £10, but I don’t mind going over.

Thinking of booking a long weekend there with Mrs YorkshireBlue in February.
Any recommendations of areas/hotels to stay?
Anything beyond the usual tourist traps worth visiting while we're there?

|US Anthem Protests|
at 11:57 27 Sep 2017
I've not seen this discussed on here, but apologies if I've missed it.
I'm just curious what people's take on the current protests being seen in American Sports? It's a story I've been following closely and wondered what others peoples opinions were.
It's worth putting in context that this is America - where school pupils often start the day by pledging allegiance to the flag, and play the national anthem before all sporting events. Although this is fairly recent - a marketing exercise by their military as a recruiting tool - paid patriotism.
A lot more widespread at the last round of NFL games - and happened for the first time in MLB - after Trump said the 'sons of bitc3s' should be fired. Which is interesting as he initially described the protesters in Charlottesville - many of whom did Nazi salutes, wielded torches and sadly led to a death as 'Very Fine People'...
For what it's worth - in my humble opinion - people, including athletes have the right to peaceful protest and I'm pretty sure sacking someone for doing so would be against the US constitution?
From Trump's perspective, he's on safe ground - highlighting something that he knows the vast majority of his base - rightly or wrongly - will agree with. It also gets people talking about an issue other than N.Korea his failure to repeal Obamacare, 4th failure this week I believe... Clever? Or blind luck?
Trump dodge the draft five times, criticized a US prisoner of war and attacked a dead soldiers family... yet accuses people of being unAmerican and not supporting their military.

Straight down the tunnel at full-time with no acknowledgment of the fans. I know it’s a small thing, but it irks me when players do that.

does anyone have any tips on how to make it bearable? The pain isn't too bad generally - although it has its moments - but my god it's uncomfortable.
Although I was flattered when the plaster technician said I'd lose the muscle around my biceps as I wasn't aware I had any!

Announced on the radio that goal one technology won't be in action tonight as Millwall's floodlights aren't bright enough. Same at Barnsley and Birmingham.
