Well, I am kind of... relieved... to see Trump suggesting, oh well anything really. Keeps him away from the Red button. And oh boy, how I want to see him not coming near that red button...

i've learnt something this week, i've learned that there's such a profession as being a social media influencer. Which as best as i can gather is someone who talks nonsense most of the time

so, it's on its way from South Atlanta, am i wrong in thinking i've paid tax on the part to the US market, will have to pay vat to the uk market, pay import tax to the eu, and who knows what other fees, then claim the us tax back?

and as the product went from the eu to the us, back to the eu... is it even subject to eu import tax?

Maybe you need some help bringing your goods back if you know what I mean?
A tourist with a fake passport, perhaps?

Stumbled upon the WC final because I saw these two legends on the table, and at first I thought it was an exhibition or veterans tournament. Very surprised to see it was the WC. Old times relived and I wished both could win the title. Great stuff. Can't remember when I last watched a complete snooker match but this was worth it. What a comeback and what a great recovery!

I think my first recollection of watching snooker on TV was Fred at the tender age of 64 reaching the world semis having dispatched john virgo and your owm dennis taylor en route.
A fabulous effort from the old codger whose career started in the year of the great depression.
A three time world champ who made steady eddie charlton's play look reckless.
He was a snooker player's snooker player.
My hero.

my wishbone left Fayetteville may 3rd, Miami may 6th, London may 7th.

How come it only made it Coventry today?
And why's it stuck in customs at Coventry?
