"a very nice guy around 50ish"



Many of you will be jumping to conclusions there, but for the record, no, it was not me.

More seriously, it's SO wonderful to be on golf courses at this time of year, wildlife everywhere you look. Hope you had a good round Ralph & there are no golfing after-effects from your broken wrist last year.

Oddly enough, I saw some Egyptian goslings on Breadsall Priory on Thursday, & I attempted to take a few 'photos too. I'll try & post them later.

Thanks Ironside. I was so busy having my mini-rant I clean forgot to remove the spammy link.

Nice to hear about Aspers (Stratford) stepping up their game with the Friday night comp! It's great to have more options post-reopening. A bit of poker action sounds like a fun way to spend a Friday night.
And hey, if you're ever in the mood for some online slots, is worth checking out. I've had some good times there, enjoying the excitement from the comfort of home.




Ugh, sneaky spammers think they are so damn clever.

R.I.P Richard.

He must have played with them when I saw them years ago and I never knew.

As for Roy Wood, my main memory from ELO was Bev Bevan as I had a mate who had a crush on him. He left after a fall out with Jeff Lynne & I guess you don't stay if you do that.

Jeepers, I think I'm catching up to Tony even faster now!



Pretty sure Bev Bevan was part of "The Move". And Roy Wood became Wizard, & had a huge Christmas hit every year.  Oh I wish it could be Christmas every day, tra la la-la la la la. He must have made a fortune out of that song.

Bev fell out with Jeff, Bev formed "ELO Part II", while Lynne formed "Jeff Lynne's ELO". Bet there were lawsuits galore.

Very sad to see that Richard Tandy has died. He was 76.

He'd worked with Jeff Lynne for around 50 years, though with a break when the original ELO split up. He's maybe best remembered for his contribution on Mr Blue Sky but in truth he was Lynne's right hand man.

Apparently he joined ELO when Roy Wood left. How about that for a memory, Roy Wood, jeez.

Quick quiz, can you give me the name of Sticky Up Hair Bloke?

If you get it, you've cheated, so I'll tell you.

I wish the BBC would find presenters with some knowledge of the sport they are presenting.

Not satisfied with the vapid, "Will he be using tactics?" Seema Jaswal, we are now being treated to such insights as,"You can tell by his expression that he wants to win" and, "It's two frames all, it doesn't get more exciting than that" delivered in the lilting, tilting Welsh tones of random bint Catrin Heldd.

I'm sure she has plenty of experience, but I suspect it's mostly centred around school runs and ironing.

Having said all that Tom, who would you prefer, her, or Sticky Up Hair Bloke over on Eurosport? It's a close run thing imo.

Unlucky with the Allen bet Tony, I thought he was starting to look the most likely winner of the tournament.

He missed two simple reds which surprised me, one along the top cushion and another into the middle, and they were the difference.

My favourite frame was the tactical one where he tied Higgins in knots with some sublime safety shots that would never have occured to me.


Hi Ralph,


Yes, I loved that frame. I'm fairly sure that the standard of safety play has improved somewhat in recent years. Very enjoyable to watch imo.

Did you watch the final frame of Higgins-Allen?

12-12, Higgins 60 odd down and Allen misses

If Higgins loses he's out the top 16

faces a double into the middle, can't play safe as he can't hide another red over the corner he can't get to

Makes the double, match over if he misses

then later on has a smelly red tight to the top cushion. Miss it, lose the match. play it slow and miss it he leaves it

Knocks it in with pace, clears up, wins 13-12

Absolutely stunning stuff, and I am not a Higgins fan but it was nails.


Hi Rich,

Yes, I watched it, as I had Mark Allen "Outright", which was my only bet still standing.

Someone else said the same thing to me, that the "back cross double" was a tremendous shot under the circumstances, very much shit or bust.

Not sure I agree, as that back cross double, especially with the red that perfect distance from the cush, is a relatively straightforward shot for a seasoned Pro.

Personally, I thought the subsequent red along the top cushion was a better shot, especially with that pocket being so tight.

I can't get to like Higgins no matter how hard I try, but I do agree it took supreme bottle to make that clearance under the circumstances. In the studio interview afterwards, I've never seen anyone look so pleased with himself, which, all things considered, is fair enough.  

Here he is in the Studio, looking like a dog with two tails, & quite right too.

I really liked Ken Docherty as a player but as a commentator I find him rather irksome fairly often.

I am a self-confessed grumpy old man with a long list of irksomes, especially on comms. but is it just me?

Totally agree, he brings nothing of merit to the commentary.

Have you got the Merlin bird app

Great bit of tackle for bird song recognition, especially this time of the year

I got Teeks on it but he's more of a townie

Morning Mr Trevor.

Funnily enough, I was using Merlin last night.

I played Mickleover with three pals. It's a heavily wooded course with some lovely mature trees & bushery. We had a 10 minute wait on one tee whilst we let a speedy 2 ball through, & this was at about 7pm on THE most beautiful sunny spring evening. The birdsong was in full flow so I opened Merlin up & it snap identified 4 different varieties within seconds. Nothing exotic - Robins, Blackbirds, a Song Thrush & a chaffinch - but it gave me a real kick to be able to know what they were.

As a golfing experience it was a disaster - that's another story - but it was SUCH a perfect evening weather-wise, with glorious birdsong right across the course.

Hope to see you soon Trevor, it's been way too long since we had a knock. Mr Giblin (JAKALLY) invited me for a round a week or two ago & we drove down to Stoke Rochford GC on the A1 south of Grantham. Wow, it was SO lovely. I play with Moulty's crew at Breadsall Priory (Moorland) regularly) & yesterday I played with another crew - "JAC" & co - at Mickleover.

Sad news, Deadly Derek is no more.

As a relatively young man & in the days when I had sporting heroes, "Deadly" Derek Underwood (along with Alan Knott who was usually behind the wickets at the other end) was one of them, & grumpy Trevor Bailey on TMS.

What memories, B Underwood, C Knott.

My uncle's horse Panda Boy is 3rd favourite for the Grand National so I'm not saying anything hugely interesting but he says "he's as right as he could be", if anyone fancied a bet.
It's a dream for him. He had a horse Doubleuagain that won at Cheltenham about 40 years ago. That ran in the Grand National, finished but didn't place. Winning the Grand National has always been a life long dream and to be so close is amazing.

That's gotta be well exciting.

VBOL, hope it runs well & gets home safely.

RIP Peter Higgs - he of the "Higgs bosun".

If you ever get the chance have a read of a few of the scores of books about Peter & the discovery of the Higgs bosun at LHC. I've read most of them, & barely understood a word, & still I don't comprehend much of it. The "World of Small" is incredible, but it's a fascinating subject. He was a very special man indeed & clever beyond our imagination.

He's 65lb fully grown, like a small coffee table that snores.

Lost a few pounds since the above photo was taken


yikes, that's the best part of 5 stone. That's like a small person, or a 10 year old child.
