    TV Series - What Are You Watching?

    I’ve had a go watching this…but…jeez. But my wife and daughter just love it - in a rather schadenfreudian way they have matched the female ‘realtors’ in the programme with a group of my daughters closest friends…🙄 Of course my wife has matched our daughter up with the nicest and least...

    Scottish Fitba'

    I am not sure that that many of the current Rangers squad would be on the bench for the Villa, never mind start. Ryan Jack maybe on the bench if he’s lucky but I’m thinking that that’s about it. Tavernier? - nah.

    Can you be too keen on the rules ?

    Yeh…it’s what UK - being a civilised country - used to adhere to pretty well and it kept us on the straight and narrow…not so sure these days - but that’s golf…🙄

    Random irritations of the day......

    I too seem to be having with my Sky Broadband these days…losing internet…not a regular thing but a bleedin’ nuisance when it happens. Happened yesterday for a while.

    Random irritations of the day......

    Of course they hadn’t included Labour and VAT in the £100, and so in the end the MOT plus that essential repair cost me £280. But as you say, not bad for an 08 with £107,000 on the clock.

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    That is what my lad thought…he has changed his mind as time and the evidence has proven him wrong - that his fears seem to have been unfounded. Though a sample size of three - and all in Scotland where ‘requirements’ on the public in respect of mask wearing etc have been maintained at a higher...

    Advent calendars

    We appear to love Advent calendars though many grown-ups seem to dismiss the very idea of Advent 😂 Funny old world but so be it. Anyway, and just FYI, of course you open in order, that’s the whole point. Though as a Calendar for Advent it’s not really correct. This year the 1st Sunday of...

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    I’ll note that on this my lad recently did three events in Scotland where those attending had to show their V/P. He was surprised and heartened how smoothly and hassle-free it went - he feared trouble, hassle and long queues. As a result he would be supportive of them being required in England...

    Things That Gladden The Heart

    And so today…5 yrs after end of chemo and surgery Mrs SILH had her final clinical check done by her consultant and all seems OK. GOOD NEWS indeed, though being a breast cancer nurse specialist my Mrs is very sensitive to aches and pains as to what they might mean. And so though she has now...

    Rocket Launcher mats

    Reference to mud on my track is relative…absolutely fIrm underfoot but with muddy blotches due to worm casts being squidged…so that in a few areas susceptible to worm casts our beautiful turf can look a bit scruffy.

    Laughter - the best medicine

    I know it’s an oldie but it made me smile… So many of the best racing drivers are named after Scottish places…Stirling Moss, Johnny Dumfries, Lewis Hamilton, Eddie Irvine, Ayr Toon Centre…🙄🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

    Rocket Launcher mats

    I started reading posts against this topic and found that I didn’t recognise many of the posters, then I looked at when the posts were made…🤣 We lucky golfers 583miles south of Inverness are fortunate in that we never have to use mats. That’s said, the ban on the fairway treatment that we...

    Potentially changing 4BBB Open Competitions- Any thoughts on alternate system?

    I believe that my club is reviewing the number of WHS qualifying rounds a member needs to have submitted over a period (of a year?) to be eligible to enter some (maybe all) of the club’s main handicap competitions. I know that the club’s ‘golf management’ are very keen that the club‘s...

    Random irritations of the day......

    Commentators on international football matches who regularly mention the club of any player…certainly an affliction/affectation of some more regular commentators on the English game…so…Henderson of Liverpool, great ball to Vardy of Leicester. Not all the time of course, but too regular for me...

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    Just back from town and this was what we observed also. And going into our local town centre (small) Sainsbury's - member of staff at entrance handing out masks to all who were coming in without one on.

    Can you be too keen on the rules ?

    IIRC it's 90% CH and then full difference off lowest for 4BBB matchplay, and 85% CH with no differencing off lowest for 4BBB strokeplay (medal, par/bogey, s/ford).

    Random irritations of the day......

    Torpedoes can miss; they can be diverted off course, and even if they hit they don’t always sink the ship…in fact with any luck they don’t detonate properly and so don‘t do that much damage at all.
