    I can't help feeling sorry for Verstappen. Team radio:

    Okay Max, only a couple of laps to go. Come in for fresh tyres and let's go for fastest lap. It's unlikely that either Merc will have a problem now and there's not a cat in hell's chance that both will.

    All BBQ though - at Little Miss BBQ, Phoenix.

    Short ribs are probably my favourite cut, but can take time. However, cooked in a slow cooker, a pressure cooker or slow and low in an oven or BBQ - or even sous vide - they can be incredible (and beef/ox cheeks aren't far behind if you are cooking them in a liquid).

    Here's one from a Texas style BBQ meal on a trip last year (it was amazing):

    In the last year I've been on an old Sri Lankan Airlines A330-200 in a 2-2-2 layout and a Finnair A330 in a very strange layout where alternate rows on the port side had 1 or 2 seats: https://www.seatguru.com/airlines/Finnai­r/Finnair_Airbus_A330-300_V2.php

    BA to this day are the only operator currently flying with business class seats where you
    need to step over other passengers to get to the bogs.

    Not exactly true. There are still plenty of carriers who have business cabins where the window seat doesn't have direct aisle access. That's on wide body aircraft - I'm discounting narrow body European business class.

    However, the effects of Covid-19 on airlines might mean that a lot of these older aircraft with original cabins are 'retired' soon.

    The same Gove who said in 2016: "We have four years more or less between now and date of next election. We can easily conclude a new settlement with EU in that period"?

    Or maybe Raab: "I hadn’t quite understood the full extent of this, but if you look at the UK and look at how we trade in goods, we are particularly reliant on the Dover-Calais crossing".

    And there's no mention in the beeb link of how the RoI/NI/GB mainland thing will work in practice.

    If it comes down to a close head-to-head end of season (with the constructor championship secured), I can't believe that Bottas will be allowed to beat Hamilton.

    Sorry?

    Well, you could be the best player in the world ever but if your team mates aren't at the same level, then your team might not be the best at that point in time.

    Kevin De Bruyne is the best midfielder in the premier league history

    Too bad it's a team sport...

    Treated myself to Comandante C40 grinder.

    Me too! My lockdown man maths made it an easy decision!

    Very impressed myself - I'm not going down to espresso grinds but it's no effort to turn - only for single servings so far though. I've only just got an Aeropress as well (why did I wait so long?) so use it mainly for that, but French press is noticeably 'cleaner' with hardly any fine powder.

    I might take some ground coffee from it to work if I ever get back to the office, but the idea of taking it on holiday is appealing!
