    Vikings

    Vikings is another series I like from The History Channel. Set in the eighth century it tells of the voyages of Ragnar Lothbrok and the first raids on England and western Europe. Michael Bay is nowhere to be sean! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MlAyWXNO6lA

    ANZAC Day

    Once again here in Australia and New Zealand we pause and remember those from all nations, our allies and friends who made the ultimate sacrifice in the name of freedom. Most of the "Diggers" from WWI and WWII are no longer with us but the memory of their selfless acts will live on. As pilgrims make their way to old battlefields in Gallipoli, Turkey and Villers - Brettoneux, France prepare for the Dawn Services and pay their respects we give our thanks to the people of those far off lands for keeping and tending to the graves of those who never came home. To the Turkish people especially who were only defending their homeland and lost thousands of loved ones too, you were a formidable yet honourable foe back then but have become a wonderful and respectful friend ever since. The fact you have named that stretch of beach ANZAC Cove speaks volumes of your compassion. Thank you. "They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them." "We will remember them!" "Lest We Forget." I miss my Grandfather (X).

    The Moody Blues

    Another fine band from The Black Country. I saw them in the 1980's with Patrick Moraz on keyboards, awesome.

    The Ashes Are On Again

    It's that time again. Good luck to both teams. Strauss gone third ball! I like the look of Trott. Two big hills to climb for the Poms. 1. Australia rarely lose at The Gabba 2. England haven't won a series in Oz since Beefy captained them in the '80's Early days yet and anything is possible and hopefully matches won't be decided by dodgy umpiring. I wonder if Pagey is watching after all he is a fan of Cricket!?

    The Ashes Are On Again

    Could be a triple and double ton in a test match innings. A record? A declaration tomorrow at / by lunch.

    The Ashes Are On Again

    A long way to go yet, CP. Malan and Bairstow batted magnificently, the highest ever fifth wicket partnership against Australia. 6 for 35 was disappointing for England. Losing one of your strike bowlers hasn't helped the cause. Has Cook played his last test? Perhaps. Hopefully Smith will get another ton.

    In just over 24 hours the Perth test begins. Should be a fast pitch and good weather too.

    Old Don is in a bit of trouble, think Harvey Weinstein. As for Les, I think he ate a dodgy witchety grub and hasn't been heard of since!?

    The Ashes Are On Again

    Is it for the whole test? You'll have a good time Jules. I went a couple of years ago and watched the game from a corporate box. Happy Days!

    At the moment they are better than England and that's all that matters. If you don't mind me saying.....

    The Ashes Are On Again

    Day / night tests are unpredictable because there haven't been many played so there is not much data available to make an educated analysis. Over the last four days the match changed many times with similarities to both teams, and is on track to change yet again. Unusual toss win to bowl first. Rain delays. Australia scores 400+ runs. England dismissed for less than the follow on requirement. Australia dismissed cheaply. England finds form with the bat. DRS calls for and against both teams. The trend for not forcing the follow on as in recent times may be reassessed from here on. Should be an interesting days play. History and statistics say England can't win but a result is possible and the pressure is squarely on them. Whether they can handle it remains to be seen. England are in a position to win but Root needs to score a century and to not lose any batting partners, however, if he gets dismissed early it may well end as an Australian win or end up being a draw. The latter options won't help England's Ashes campaign. All in all a good contest and great test cricket.

    The Ashes Are On Again

    Funny game, Cricket. I'll admit I was a little off with my assessment of the English bowlers. They should open the batting!? This will be lucky to last four full days. Stokes is on fire in NZ.....

    The Ashes Are On Again

    Day 2, first session, England 2 wickets - Australia 97 runs. Australia 6/306. The pitch is starting to turn.

    The Ashes Are On Again

    Tomorrow the Day/Night Test in Adelaide starts. Whoever wins the toss and bats will definitely have an advantage, especially at twilight before the lights take full effect. Australia to win? We'll see.

    The Ashes Are On Again

    England all out in their second innings. Australia need 169 runs to win in four sessions. Smith playing for a draw? Never.

    The Ashes Are On Again

    The pitch leaves a lot to be desired. A little bit for the bowlers and not much for the batters. He was overawed I think and lacked patience. Out from a poor shot off an average ball. Hopefully the weather holds and we get a result one way or another.

    The Ashes Are On Again

    Day 2. I haven't watched today only following online and radio. England all out for 302 before lunch. Last 6 wickets fell for only 56 runs. Now to see how the Pommy bowlers and our new opener Cameron Bancroft fares.

    BTW, Usain Bolt has been giving the Australian team sprint training.

    The Ashes Are On Again

    Worried? You wish, CP!? England are a bit light on as far as their bowling attack. England have won the toss (probably the only thing they'll win) and are batting first. First ball only moments away. As for Maxwell he is only on standby. Both Warner and Marsh are playing.
