    More nooks to collect dust and grime, great!

    Absolute filth out in the Essex lanes this morning, mushed up leaves and lumps of mud all over the place resulting in a few squeaky bum moments. It's the same every Autumn/Winter, yet always surprises me...

    Also saw a squirrel get run over by another rider near Theydon Garnon...surprisingly upset by the incident to be honest; although the squirrel seemed to have survived, running off after thrashing around in the road for a moment. I must say, squirrels do, if they are at the side of the road, always seem to have the urge to run into the road when startled.

    Well just over a week after that he was smashing it in the Tour of the Alps with Sivakov...

    Haven't seen it for years and didn't watch past the first few mins though so maybe it's obvious!

    The monkeys and King Louis (orangutan) are voiced as black (by white actors obviously...).

    EDIT...too slow...

    Hindley was 1:15 behind Tao on Stage 14:

    But about 49s ahead on stage 1...

    Sure, that the building is fucked is clear, but surely asking for offers beforehand is just silly - you could just say whatever to view it. Smells like some basic dishonesty is behind the approach. Surely just asking for cash buyers only is enough...

    At least the previous occupants managed to keep the garden nice!

    On the subject of places that need significant work, I've been looking at places in Chelmsford recently, and enquired about this property...

    https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-forĀ­-sale/property-97201091.html

    ...and was told by the estate agent that they weren't showing people around the place unless you were willing to make an offer for it beforehand! Er, what?! Needless to say we passed on that, but is that common?

    Considering the bike shouldn't have ever been UCI legal I guess they just don't care. Except for sock height.

    I hope rather than cleaning it off they do Cook Pass Babtridge!

    Fingers crossed we will be able to do the same - we loved the place we'd seen, and apparently so far it's only had low offers. Hopefully we'll get some more interest in our place, although we're pretty over making it look like a show home.
