As my previous edition has disappeared into the ether, I will start another one.
The first item is about Ribble Steam Railway, you may see some familiar names.

A new feature, Container Cargo vessels arriving at Liverpool Gladstone Docks and Naval ships
at Cammal Lairds at Birkenhead. http://shipfinder.co/gallery.php?mmsi=2 ... 687712.jpg just click on the images for other vessels.

Royal Princess is a fairly regular visitor to the Liverpool Cruise Centre near to Pier
at 330 metres long and 44 meters wide she makes for a splendid sight.
The fact that she does'nt need the assistance of tugs and uses her own thrust
makes for interesting viewing.

Good. As a regular P and O cruiser, this suits me fine. We always canceled, or reduced the 'mandatory' tips anyway, which one can do once on board, and tipped who we wished to. :)

Now for something completely Different Crickets Greatest Feats.

Post by AndrewBarclay » Sun Sep 23, 2018 3:05 pm

I will start with one of the greatest bowling feats in Ashes Cricket.
Bob Willis's 8 wickets for 43 runs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HtPw_Ztlm_Q
The other bowling feat was Sir Garfield Sobers 6 sixes in an over off Malcom Nash
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_bK7Ys2Th-c.

Batting next time but a lot to choose from Ben Stokes, Brian Lara,
Sir Donald Bradman, Sir Len Hutton to name but a few but not for a few days.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ExDcmYRyY8A Ben Stokes 258 runs England V South Africa.
