Developments in motor racing

I thought I’d post a bit about whatever has been going on in Motor Racing recently.

From looking on you can’t help but think that the sport is in a lot of trouble. A driver with famous connections dies last week live on tv, an F1 driver is seriously injured but somehow at the time of the incident itself the guys at the circuit make it look all very relaxed – certainly no hint of the actual injuries.

Then just about as I’m writing this BMW are holding a press conference to announce (allegedly) that they’re leaving F1.

Aside from that the IRL keeps changing its rules to help “the show” and MotoGPs top class has an embarrassingly small regular grid.

Very little good news around really and I don’t see it getting much better. Its a shame really as has been said before because this years F1 championship should be a thriller.

I haven’t got any solutions here but its just not so good seeing a sport I enjoy so much struggling. Just have to hope things improve soon I guess.

Third times a charm

I started writing this whilst listening to the very odd Windowlicker by the Aphex Twin in my daughters schools car park. I’ve been here passing the time for the best part of half an hour – productive evening then.

I’ve actually had three stabs at writing this now – here on the bus on the way home friday evening and Thursday whilst standing in Gorey chippy. None of this is particularly useful information either in terms of background or context to any of this but such is life – you read this drivel you takes your chances really.

So what’s been going on with me lately – quite a bit really I guess. The diet has been going well…….. I’ve not lost a heck of a lot more but I’m getting fit and keeping the weight off which is great.

Last weekend I was doing my first proper karaoke night and I have to say I think it went damn well. The crowd at Bobby’s Bar were well into it and I might well be heading back there some time soon. Time will tell. And there was me thinking I would actually hate doing karaoke. It were great. I even allowed myself to get talked into joining someone singing “Fast Car” and joined a group for “Bohemian Rhapsody” – got to be done really 🙂

I enjoyed watching Glastonbury coverage on tv last week. Blur seemed outstanding even if Damon seemed a touch preoccupied with “Positivity” – not all that sure what that was about but the music was great, especially opening with Girls and Boys – brilliant!

One thing I did notice though was this absolutely huuuuge banner with “I love sausage” (technically it was a heart sign but I haven’t got one in this font!). Where do people buy this stuff – is there like a 60ft banner shop somewhere on the internet or something? We should be told. Might not bother investing in one for Jersey Live though.

Right then – bus is nearly home so I think that’s a good place to stop as any. Highlight of the weekend is lunch with work tomorrow swiftly ttp followed by hosting several or many of our kids mates at ours. My head will hurt from one or the other!
