    Yeah I’ve lost the front end of my mini maxi on a slippery round about before, big crash, some scraps but no damage really, thankfully

    Just everyday motorised terrorists, their political message isn't really
    important.

    Couple of things, finally got round to watching treme, really enjoying it, 1 season in. Ive had it all on dvd for 3/4 years but not watched it as the effort of using a DVD player is just too much these days. I don’t have a lap top with a dvd drive any more and the one tv in the house is normally showing pepper pig these days. But it’s finally turned up on sky box sets.

    Is anybody watching anything on Apple TV or whatever there calling it ? The morning show was enjoyable but cynically of its time #metoo etc. See, total nonsense but looked amazing, kind of reminded me of the revenant, the way it looked at least.

    I have know idea how this Apple TV is supposed to work, it’s totally baffling, like all things apple theses days. I have it free for 12 months due to my new iPhone I guess. it also works on the 5/6 year old Apple TV box, it doesn’t work on any of my iPads of various vintages, the youngest being 3 or 4 years old.

    There only appear to be about 3 or 4 things to watch on it right now. You can scrolls through loads of interesting looking stuff but when you click on it it asks you to rent or buy it through iTunes, even worse they suggests you watch stuff you’ve already bought on iTunes like there doing you a favour.

    Some classic absent driver reporting right there. 7 or 8 paragraphs in you get a reference to the driver being violently sick (poor thing) I assume the police aren't interested or at least there's no reference to it in the article.

    We’ve just got one of these a couple of weeks ago. It seams good, has Netflix and amazon access via buttons on the controller, all very easy to set up(if you can remember your passwords!)We’ve got our on the wall as our 20 month old has water damaged/ smashed 2 TVs in the last 6 weeks.

    Jez looks like water world, very good effort getting it done with 3 days! To go.

    Just fixed a slow rear flat. That would have proper pissed me off if I’d found it in the morning. The tire was full of bit of flint and glass I needed to dig out with a pin, really must check them more regularly but it’s a pain in the arse when your running full guards.

    119kms to go

    Still chipping away at it, 203kms to go. Might be done on Sunday, more likely end it with a short ride on Monday. The weather was much nicer yesterday and it’s looking good again this morning.
