Meer - The weather sounds nasty, as flooding is rough. Sorry. So......this is NOT a good time of the year to visit UK?

Thanks, gossie. Yes, it sure was a howling one last night. Things okay your way?
Jim - it may not be the best time, but if you packing canoe, waders, tin hat and digging implements you'll be fine.

I haven't seen much damage locally,but I've only ventured out to run so far today.
I'll be going in the other direction soon-when toddler wakes up!

Meer - It sounds too much like WORK. Of course, I like canoeing. My daughter's high school band has been invited to next year's New Year's Day parade. A friend told me that the weather would be nasty, but I did not believe him. It appears that he may be correct. Of course, we do not know yet if the band director will agree to the trip. Big dollars/planning are involved.

I'm currently listening to Classic Virgin Rock, so have a touch of England today. I was listening to a Classic Rock station in Kansas, but changed it. Those poor people do not know what classic rock music is.

Correction - Virgin Classic Rock.

Rock on Jimmy!

Of course the weather would be great if you and your daughter came over :oD

I was supposed to be going off-roading tomorrow(As in the 4x4 Landrover type!) but apparently the necessary off-roading tyres haven't turned up in time.
I might still go for a look though-They do a mean bacon butty at the tea wagon ! !

Parade sounds grand, Jim. Would the band actually be playing? Glad you've got a bit of the UK over there. I've just been listening to Our Religion on Napster.

Afternoon all!

Just back from Aber. I haven't read back in the thread yet.

Had a nice run there - - it was so windy on the sea front I could feel my face being pushed out of shape as if under massive G forces.

Meer - I have NO idea. However, I believe they would. I know there are several places that they will tour and/or play. Again, no decision has been made YET.

Mike - Welcome back. Sounds as if the breezes were stiff.
08/01/2005 at 16:43
LOL JJ. Too true. Sitting on the fence would now mean crouching in the mud.
Welcome back, MikeFrog.
08/01/2005 at 17:12
JJ - That would be the plan as long as it did not interfere with the parade. Details are still unknown/very sketchy right now. This is the reason that I might not make ABO. I could not take time for both. We'll see.

Congrats to you and your colleagues! The lady is an impressive runner. That is a decent margin for the win!

Hello JohnnyJ and Jim.
08/01/2005 at 17:25
Hi Lady L. It's always nice to see you. Hope the family is doing well.

JJ - I will remember AND give you the credit.
08/01/2005 at 17:28
They are fine thanks Jim. They have just extracted all the chocolates they don't like from the tin and wrapped them up for me. Isn't that thoughtful?

I played tennis this morning but it was very windy. Lots of matches coming up.
On the running front, I am increasing mileage with no problems. Getting orthotics soon.
08/01/2005 at 17:29
Serpies 5K is a distinct possibility JJ. But I am a bit wary of doing much speedwork at the moment.
I am concentrating more on increasing mileage for Reading Half on 6 March.
08/01/2005 at 17:31
I'm just going to go and watch the darts. Back soon.
08/01/2005 at 17:35
Lady L - You certainly have very thoughtful children. I've played tennis on windy days and do NOT envy you. Those matches are not fun. It's great news about the unimpeded running. I wish you the best.
