Rather, what made me smile today. Last Friday I filmed the Tranmere to Isle Of Man midnight Yacht race from New Brighton. Today Sunday I went to my local newsagent in West Kirby the owner is a keen sailor I showed him the film I had taken. He said" I can top that I was the race marshall " he showed me his film taken from aboard, which caused me to delete my efforts

Teacher at school today getting smacked fair and square in the b@lls with a ball from the people who were playing cricket. Near the end of break-time he goes 'i think the bell has gone'.

I know the River Mersey had been cleaned up and salmon and trout had been seen/caught but I went shopping at Sainsbury's and bought some salmon/fillets which were from Seaforth Loch

Hearing a few bars from "highway to the danger zone" on the 492nd A2A today, about mid morning. I thought I was hearing things.

I was on the Llangollen railway today as we passed Berwyn there was an almighty traffic jam an Abnormal Load had broken down on the Berwyn Bank unfortunately there was a number of abnormal loads going along the A5 to a wind farm under construction and they were too wide to get past. I did a return trip and it was stalemate.

I was speaking to the train crew they informed me that these abnormal loads have been operating for a few weeks and will continue
daily until the end of August the first abnormal load arrives at Llangollen about 10.45am they start off from Ellesmere Port travelling
along the M53 onto the A55 onto the A483 and along the A5 through to Corwen and to a cite with an unprounounsible welsh
name they are erecting 30 of these structures.

Edit Yellow Towers with Average Speed Cameras have been erected on some minor/major routes in North Wales. That is no Laughing matter.

Flipping heck - a goal in minute 95 but what a great shot - Beckameseque from Kroooooss

What's the odds on Germany winning the world cup on penalties?

I might start a thread titled " You're not laughing now!" Could put it in the Marham section :P

Some more of the above ;)

Anyway, online news headlines have today allegedly said temps could be getting hotter than Brazil this week. Still deciding to go for that trim, whereabouts and how short...

On a similarish note, seen a few people still dressed up in jackets, denim and other clothing hardly designed for Summer heat? What the :ninja:
