    The 'Hundred' - new England/Wales city-based franchise cricket competition

    It's nice to be in the minority! I was slightly suspicious about it as it didn't look over appealing when written down but watching it does have it's merit. Yes it's a modifued T20 game but the little nuances make it have sufficient interest. Is it not logical to have 5 ball overs? Wouldn't...

    4 more daytrips done Saturday to Tuesday. Over 40 miles walked (quite why in this heat, though!) with just on 1000 more photos. More pleasing is 3 were "new" places for me. Only issue yesterday was not one but 2 trains breaking down from Windermere (and to think the train fare cost more than all...

    Just realised I didn't give an update to the "post daytrip restriction lifted" scenario. 5 or 6 places visited so far and well over 2000 photos taken with today Tatton Park saying they'd like to feature a couple of shots on their social media. The good ol' days have returned.

    UEFA Euro 2020

    I spent a fair while laughing at Scotland. For all the talk of how they did against England, it seemed virtually the whole media didn't latch onto the idea that at the end of England-Scotland match, in rhe last round of matches England were pretty much guaranteed to qualify regardless of...

    UEFA Euro 2020

    I expect part of the reason is that it doesn't really feel like a tournament. It's like a 4 team pre-season event in various cities then we get Quarter Finals, Semi-Final and Final. I've not seen that many flags around. At our work, apparently there were at least 2 sweepstakes. I wasn't...
