    Thanks. Now I'm stuck with Prince Maurits in my head for the rest of the day. He takes the place of your gentle duke in the Dutch version of this song. But he apparently marched ten times as many men up and down that hill than the duke.

    That looks like it could have done with the teabag brewing a bit longer ;)

    Hi,

    Strangely, I had a sensor go like this back in the winter? I was wearing lots of layers working in a cold environment (no heating.) with a lot of body movement.. I put it down to the end of the sensor's life (about a day left.) with the multi layered slieve including a thermal long tee compressing & jigling the sensor too much? The meter didn't concur with the wild numbers.

    If you like your music dome differently, the album, No More Mr Nice Guy, by Pat Boone, who is a real clean cut American singer. he does an amazing job of covering some rock classics. Enter Sandman, the Metallica song is simply out of this world

    Coming from Haggisland we could never understand the English fascination with cricket. the rules are very strange

    You have two sides, one out in the field and one in. Each man that's in the side that's in goes out, and when he's out he comes in and the next man goes in until he's out. When they are all out, the side that's out comes in and the side thats been in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out. Sometimes you get men still in and not out.

    When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, and when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in. There are two men called umpires who stay all out all the time and they decide when the men who are in are out. When both sides have been in and all the men have been out, and both sides have been out twice after all the men have been in, including those who are not out, that is the end of the game!

    Yeah ear worms are irritating sometimes and take a long time to shake off. My current one is Unity by John Tams who starred in the series Sharpe. The CD is much better, the intro to this is long and the sound quality tinny but love the sentiment. Another Diabetes tune "Raise your banners high"
    Interesting for me is that John Tams was born in Derbyshire and has lost his "up" vowel sound whereas the second vocalist, Andy Seward, hasn't. Listen to the way they sing "up". Lovely, irritating worm. Wonder what's next?Anyone got a worm that won't go away at the moment?

    I have no idea if those seats are any good, and I don't like cricket, but my dad used to love it, and always watched it on the tv. A few times when I was young I went to a real match with him, it's a very civilised way to spend a day, and it's much more interesting in real life than on tv, so even if they aren't great seats it's worth going anyway, just to be there.

    Have to agree with @Alison54321 on this @ert. When I was in Australia many years ago I went to watch Englan vs Australia on day 3 of one of the Ashes tests and the atmosphere was amazing. The Barmy Army are really funny

    @ert re the cricket. Sorry it’s a big yawn from me. Plus those ball tampering, cheating Aussies should have been banned for life. They give Oz and cricket a bad name.

    I agree that there should be longer penalities for cheats. Remember British middle-distance runner Gareth Warburton who was banned for 6 months and sprinter Solomon Wariso for three months for failed drug tests. I'm sure these sentences were no deterrent. They give the UK and athletics a bad name. But then again, one shouldn't condemn an entire nation based on a few dishonest sportspeople.

    I promise - no more dull cricket posts. :)

    Evening all, relatively uneventful day here, bloods steady and I didn’t kill anyone.

    I think cricket could be interesting if they played it with live hand grenades...
