What's with the colour of this Portugal strip? Looks like they're playing in hospital scrubs! #Hideous
So years later Chilcot report finds what any sane person could see as obvious at the time: Blair & Bush are warmongering liars! #Disgraceful
Just back from cycling & served up this pre-lunch snack from my favourite warung kecil. Great recovery dish. Nom!
Unlucky with a couple of punctures today, but I suppose there are worse places to have to fix one. Won't complain
Bit of a traffic jam out riding today. Well, traffic of the bovine kind Glorious day up the Hourquette & Aspin!
Walkies at Col des Palomières. View behind to the North as you can't see the mountains to the South from here. Doh!
Bit hungover so easy spin up the Tourmalet as a cure. Only 46s behind PR. Maybe drinks the eve. before not all bad
Out in the woods next to 'home' with the dogs. One is too shy for photos, the other clearly an attention seeker!
Folks here are so generous. Another invite for roast dinner with Yorkshire puds & a nice drop of red. Yum! Thx!
Headline writers: Political back stabbing is normal. Is not news. Get back to us when the bunch of cocks announce they have an actual plan!
Roy Hodgson faces media but says: "I don’t really know what I am doing here" Bit like last night then!
Almost 60% of UK car exports go to EU & only 20% of German car exports go to UK. So @Nigel_Farage tell me again who tariffs will hurt more?
David, in Brussels today, if they offer you a 'new' kind of beer/chocolate make sure it's not called 'article 50'. That's only for Boris
Well... I can't wait to see what happens at Wimbledon now!
So... Has anyone got any opinions about England vs Iceland tonight?
System I inherited has a 1-many table (2 cols) to join stuff. But instead of multiple rows it has CSV string in a single row! #Facepalm
Drove up to Payolle for a stroll & ended up parking in the clouds. Still lovely, if a little chilly for summer!
Drove up the Hourquette d'Ancizan. Opened the door to some new friends Misty but the change makes it interesting.
This looks interesting. Maybe it's beer with a hint of bacon?
Tiny supermarket in Bagnères-de-Bigorre has nice select of local cheeses. Love taking random chunks from here. Yum!
Type, "Farage 350" into any news search engine. I see stories in English, Dutch, German, Spanish, etc. UK is a global laughing stock!
My social network is full of posts of disgust at #Brexit (with just 1 exception). So glad for sensible friends & today, a 2nd passport!
Spectacular day in the Pyrenees. Col d'Aspin, Arreau, Hourquette d'Ancizan, Sarrat de Gaye. Lazy 2000m of climbing
#Brexit... Thank fu&k it's almost over!!! So here's some comedy to finish things off:
Our butter dish (or what passes for one in the snail). Might have been a bit warm today
To change sides is OK. It's that Boris's motive is completely self serving & nothing to do with what he knows to be best for the UK. #Brexit
Boris Johnson, Feb '16: "real problems of this country, low skills, low social mobility, low investment etc have nothing to do with Europe"
Just ate a whole baguette and, like, half kilo of blue cheese. I invite anyone in bio-weapons research to come visit in a few hours!
Last day of spring evening ride with my beautiful - if a little slow... ahem! - riding partner. Niiiice!
"Countries usually don’t knowingly commit economic suicide... Leaving the EU would be an act of national insanity"! https://www.washingtonpost.com/o...
#Brexit fact: UK donates more to charity than EU costs it! Why would such a generous nation turn it's back on less fortunate neighbours?
UK markets & pound plunge on mere suggestion #Brexit Leave may win. Imagine hit to pension funds & cost of living if it actually happens!
Dear web crawler devs: if you can't play nice, you will be banned. Please play nice, I've got better things to do!
Evening 'snack'. Nom, nom, nom...
When you drop round to friends for lunch... and are served a four course gourmet meal! Nom, nom, nom Thank you!
Helping friends collect cherries from this beautiful tree in their yard. Yuuuuuum!
Fresh baguette delivery in France. Bread here is seldom wrapped & clearly throwing it in an old pipe isn't an issue!
Salt on jersey is normal but I took ass-sweat to whole new level today 100km Tourmalet loop & still 30° at 1700m!
Bit of a struggle up the Tourmalet today. What with heat & running out of water after going long way round. Oops!
Chrome scrolling make you crazy? Fix: chrome://flags & turn off 'Smooth Scrolling'. Disable crappy 'Session Restore Bubble' there too! Yay!
Another back to back tasting test. Duval v St Bernardus Tripel. Verdict: too close to call. More testing required!
Random walkies just up the hill from Gerde. Lovely shady track is good as it's pretty warm this evening.
All I could find in the fridge... Leffe & Duval. How terrible! Cheers!
