Celtic lose today (what a surprise) so title to be won against rangers at home next week unless Aberdeen and Rangers both lose today

Sorry Iron, thought it was a good bet till Sunday. Certainly wasn't chucked  - hibs deserved the win (just back from the game).


i dont think it was chucked just dont think they cared if they didnt win and think the fans would prefer to do it at home to rangers for the party

Graeme Dott might be the most consistently underrated top-class snooker player of all time, especially at The Crucible.

Fairly surprising since he has won one world title and been runner-up twice.

Agree with you here Ralph. When at his best he had a run of results most would love, as you say a win, two runner ups but in between he was also knocked out by the eventual winner twice too.

He’s been playing well for months now, biggest issue he has had is he’s been drawn to play Ronnie in a few of the first to 4 and 5 comps. I hope he wins this match and gets to take a few more scalps over these longer matches.

I’ve decided to play a bit of a schedule tomorrow. Like many over the world Sunday is online poker day. Now I’m back working a project I’ll be fully engrossed in that for the next 6 months.

A weekly schedule of the following will have me looking forward to it each week/fortnight.

215 Sunday MILLY
11 storm
Big 11
22 SPK
Big 22
22 spk turbo
Big 55
Hot 11

Not sure if they have a Sunday 8 game if so I’ll play that.

Am I missing any of the good ones?

If anyone wants some action, I’ll open up a percentage. Not sure what that would be. But a max of 40%

I am no super horse just someone with a bit of skill, and a love for the game. Hopefully we can have some deep runs and get a fun blonde rail going.

Hourly updates for the MILLY.

I wish I knew some more blondes that are playing? Id like to keep a tab on their progress.

1. Favourite genre to read
It changes over time. Historical fiction has been quite a mainstay - with the more specific sub-genre changing. At the moment it's probably Historical Drama. I can recommend Bernard Cornwell's Fools and Mortals.

2. Current book you're reading
Homo Deus by Yuval Noah Harari. I preferred the first of these (Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind) because this one is somewhat more speculative about what could happen and using that as a way to comment on the current state of the species. But he writes really well (or has a really good editor if he doesn't), so I think I'd probably enjoy any topic he wrote on (roughly in his field of expertise at least).

3. First book you remember loving
Bit tricky because I know I did love The Very Hungry Caterpillar when I was very small - but I don't 'remember' loving it. I have a terrible memory, the first books I actually remember loving were the Choose Your Own Adventure books (I definitely can't remember a specific one Smiley )

4. A book/series you wish would be adapted to film
A few, probably mostly the Rift War series by Raymond E Feist.


5. Favourite protagonist
Hard question, will probably change regularly but I guess Thursday Next from Jasper Ffordes 'Thursday Next' Series.

6. Favourite antagonist
... I really can't think of one; plenty of books have well written antagonists but I can't really think of any that really stand out enough to be 'special'.

7. Do you write any stories?
I have done. I co-wrote a pilot for Blackadder 5 when I was at school (it was City/stock market based) it had some good gags in it is probably the best that could be said. I wrote a short story for  my wife, but it was very tailored to her likes so wouldn't 'travel' well. But mainly I've had ideas and cba to do anything about them - even the short story I wrote for my wife I plotted out as a trilogy but never got around to writing the 2nd and 3rd one.

8. A movie you think was better than the book
I've seen at least one film where I thought it was better than the book, but I can't remember for the life of me what it was.

9. Best book you've read this year
The Romanov's by Simon Sebag Montefiore. Really good book on that (large) part of Russian history.

10. One of your favourite authors
Jasper Fforde

11. Least favourite genre to read
Difficult to say, maybe epistolary novels, but even that is arguably more of a style rather than a genre.

12. A book you'd recommend to a friend
It would depend on the friend. For example, my wife and a few of her friends like Harry Potter a lot so I'd suggest the Peter Grant series by Ben Aaronovitch. But for other people I'd never recommend any fiction book - because it wouldn't help them.
So very much - it would depend on the friend.

13. Favourite film adaptation of a book
Difficult, I like a lot of books and a lot of films. Maybe Gone with the Wind, maybe Blade Runner; but they're both films I like which are also book adaptations. In terms of the process of adaptation my favourite would probably be Adaptation, even though that's a bit meta.


14. Book you've read the most times
Not sure, maybe Jane Eyre but it might be something like The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe because I haven't got a good enough memory to remember how many times I read it when I was younger.

15. A book you didn't expect to like
I don't read books unless I expect to like them. The only book I didn't expect to like at school was Of Mice and Men - and I didn't like it. So that's the sole answer.

16. Favourite classic book
Ulysses by James Joyce. It took me a couple of goes to get into it (the key was to be reading it in the right accent Cheesy ). But once I did get into it, I pretty much didn't stop until I finished.

17. Book that's impacted you the most
The Epigenetics Revolution by Nessa Carey. Nothing 'deep' or profound in the reasons, it just taught me a lot of science that I didn't know.

18. If you could meet one author (living or dead) who would it be?
I've met a few authors and it's all nice and good if they do something like sign a book for you; but I'm not really that fussed about it. It would be quite nice to meet Bernard Cornwell, he seems like a nice chap. It would be nice to have dinner party conversation with Stephen Fry (I imagine); but I don't really 'care'. If I absolutely had to give an answer, I'd go with God.

19. An author you think more people should know about
I really like Ben Aaronivichs Peter Grant series of books, but as good as they are I'd still have to go for Jasper Fforde - his literary skills are pretty awe inspiring, and he's illustrated them over multiple book series (albeit thematically linked). It seems a bit mean to Ben Aaronvich given I like his books so much and that I've met him but he has to be relegated to second place in this question.

20. Favourite book / series of all time
Book: Ulysses by James Joyce
Series: at the moment the Thursday Next series by Jasper Fforde, but Ben Aaronvitches Peter Grant series could overtake it (I don't think they'll ever 'technically' be better - but they're just so goddam entertaining Smiley )

Not discouraged by that run as I'm sure she'll run the track a lot better next time.

Thanks for putting those races up Omm.
