Sit in the garden and read Birdsong whilst drinking beer. Then watch a dvd whilst continue to drink beer in the evening. Then order a curry, whilst drinking more beer and finish off with another film and more beer/ scotch!

Re: What Shall I Do In The Next Hour Or So ?

Thanks for the advice all ! In fact I went for a 6K bike ride, 2nd one in 25 years and discovered that there are more hills around these here flatlands than are apparent from the driving seat of a GTV and that you ALWAYS have a headwind ! Also think I need a Gel saddle.........

As soon as I find out how to get these darned Lycra shorts off ( please don't try to visualize this ) and my voice returns to normal I will follow all the advice given except for Nicky's, did that yesterday !

Re: What Shall I Do In The Next Hour Or So ?

There's a Dutch writer
J.M.A. Bieheuvel - hort-story writer, born in Schiedam, W Netherlands. In 1971 he published his first work In de bovenkooi (In the Upper Bunk), which was an instant success. Since then, and including his collection of stories Het wonder (1995, The Miracle), his work can be typified as autobiographical set against a strangely deformed reality coloured by bizarre occurrences and an outlandish fantasy, and with underdogs as the main characters. Recurring themes are his strict Calvinist upbringing, his detention in mental hospitals, the motherly, protective role of his wife Eva, and a romantic longing for paradise. In 1988 he was assigned to write the Book Week Gift
who is also a cyclist. He only cycles with the wind, then takes a train back home from wherever he ends up.

Re: What Shall I Do In The Next Hour Or So ?

Good comments Ferdi and Al.

I have a cunning plan for the keep fit bike rides. There is a nice country pub about 5 miles away. Now on a nice sunny afternoon that could make a good halfway point, and of course I wont drink any beer whilst there.

Seem to be getting lot's of low flying pigs around this computer....

Just the usual quotient of Collared Doves ( flying rats ) poo !

Years ago I had a theory about cars and bird poo. I mostly owned red Alfa's and my theory was that a bird flying over a red car was startled by the colour ( scared poo less ) and let go !

They seem to be frightened of green as well..............

I know it's a bit late, but you could have vaccumed the house AND drank beer. Work and play at the same time, everyones a winner!

Not too good at multi tasking Rob, especially when drinking beer !

Nice thought though, might try it during the annual vacuuming !
