Ric that hill is my daily drive home from the office, it takes long enough in a car.....3 mins on a bike is phenomenal.
Is there a box on the landing card / visa form you can tick?
you know "what is the purpose of your stay? Holiday, business, jihad"
Booktrunk that is a bloody fantastic effort.....well done
only 2 years running and just look at your achievements!!
Our 2 get a reasonable amount of homework from their school, it is mainly spelling and maths. They are year 3 and 4, I left school in the 80's but never had homework until secondary school.
We make ours do their homework straight after school, we are lucky as swmbo finishes work at 1:30 and is able to guide and help them.
My main worry is that we have 11 plus in operation around here,the parents of our kids friends are all obsessed with private tutors and the like. They talk of nothing else whenever i meet one of them.

On the other hand what has happened to Scot Overall - after that one good marathon he seems to have gone backwards.
Good the way that the thread has kept going without Samir on here to to force the pace.
You have to feel for poor Scott Overall, just read his blog about returning from training with Chris Thompson.... He than talks about his build up and winning the Reading Half
He clearly forgot that epic 352 metre start line dual with big Samir, I'm convinced without that massive effort Scott would have had more on tank for the closing stages of VLM!
