Fun this last week.
Tuseday had collected some new Conti mtb tyres from Wolverhampton, put them on in the evening.
Drank far too much on Tuesday evening, like a bottle of Absolut vodka, 40% proof. Not good as it led to some sort of showdown with Mrs Cog, ended up writing Hazel's address on a pice of paper, with a heading - this is where I will be living soon. Sent Hazel a text to say I'm being chucked out.
Tuesday worked at home, in Joanne's bedroom, with a good wireless connection, waiting for some sort of showdown when she came back from the shops. Looking at some of the stuff Joanne left behind made me realise how much I miss her. Passed of the address as a hotel I would be staying in when I go to work in Manchester after the holidays. Can't believe she swallowed that. Drink now banned, and all the keys hidden.
Anyhoo, had a call to say I would be working in Portsmouth for September and October.
Thursday went to bike shop in Wolverhampton to buy XT chainset and some rather neat mtb pedals, by some company I never heard of, probably from some Taiwanese mass-production line. But they are lighter and as good quality as the Shimanos which are twice the price.
Called Hazel, as she sent me 2 texts as she was worried about me.
Her cousin has gone to USA, with a green card but she can't get his cellar flat in Stockport.
I did offer to help her buy it, when I was in Spain, but that went cold.
Ho, hum.
Friday we celebrated gettin decent sales in UK, so red wine and pizza was had by all, and me especially.
Today we went to Bristol to see Joanne, went for a meal at the cheesey chip pub, no alcohol so had a horrible coke. But not before getting a parking ticket and a big yellow notice saying;
'Authorised for towing away' stuck on the side of my car.
Yes, Joanne said I can park on that road at weekends.
She seems happy there, which is good. So watched The Young Ones, and now to bed.
Some 'foriegners' were caught trying to blow up 2 trains in Germany. Couldn't possibly be islamic as the Germans are not bad like us in Britain and the Americans, the Germans don't support Israel or send their armies into Afghastlistan to fight the Al-Peadophiles.

Snakes on a Plane ! At cinemas NOW !

Interesting comments from British muslims on BBC's have your say.

Most say that British foriegn policy is wrong. Wrong in what way ? Are we being too fierce to the French ? Cruel to Cuba ? Bullying Borneo ?
No, we are figting evil in Irag, Afghanistan and not calling for a cease-fire soon enough in Lebanon.
i.e. fighting wars in places where muslims are, and not condeming a country that dares to stand up for itself against the aggressors that surround it.
Well, supporters of Al-Quedophiles, maybe you think you have have the moral high ground, and us in The West are running scared, but we have been the cradle of civilisation and had the power and knowledgde to rule the world since the days on The Greek civilisation that flourished at the end of the Bronze Age, almost 2000 years before mohamed reared his ugly, evil head.
Do you think the collective will of us all that enjoy the greatest, most profoundly good civilisation will allow some dirty arabs from a desert to rule our world ? I don't think so.

Medals for cowards.
Running away is finally approved by HM Government:

If my cousin hadn't have sold my Granfather's medals, I would have thrown them away in disgust.

Heres a funny thing:

From The Daily Mail;

Muslim leaders summoned to talks with the Government on tackling extremism in their midst called for public holidays to mark their religious festivals.
The Whitehall meeting was set up in response to last week's airline bomb plot discovery.
Communities Secretary Ruth Kelly had prepared an uncompromising message on the need to tackle dangerous radicalism. But, in what she admitted were 'sharp' exchanges, some senior Muslim figures turned the tables yesterday and made a series of demands which also included the introduction of Sharia law for family matters. Dr Syed Aziz Pasha, secretary general of the Union of Muslim Organisations of the UK and Ireland, said: 'We told her if you give us religious rights, we will be in a better position to convince young people that they are being treated equally along with other citizens.'
Dr Pasha said Miss Kelly had agreed to look at the proposals, though her spokesman insisted later that she did not favour any legal change which would give 'special treatment' for the Muslim community. Some of the 30 moderate Muslim leaders at the meeting told Miss Kelly that important days in their two main religious festivals - Ramadan and Eid-ul-Adha - should be made public holidays for followers of the faith.Sharia law, which is practised in large parts of the Middle East, should also be introduced in Britain, they argued. While it specifies stonings and amputations as routine punishments for crimes, Dr Pasha said he wanted it only for family affairs.

Yes, you do what we tell you, and we won't bomb you.
Well, if muslims want to live under sharia law, THEY CAN FUCK OFF to some Middle Eastern shithole that has sharia law already.
Mammoths !

Plans are afoot to combine mammoth dna in an elephant egg, and grow a cloned mammoth !

Cycling. Whats that ?
Oh, I remember, its something I used to do !
To that end, I'm going to buy some new tyres for my mountain bike, as the ones on now I bought in December 1990 ! They have lasted pretty well.

But, be happy as Snakes on a Plane is in a cinema near you soon !

The crummy town of Epila, Spain.

After a long blogless interval, here goes.
Lazy, working until 21.30, tiredness, nothing to say were all reasons why I couldn't be bothered with blogging.
What transpired since I last put fingers to keyboard ?
Last week flew to Zaragoza from Stanstead and hired a car. Stayed in PH Hotel in Zaragoza.
On the Sunday I arrived, checked in the hotel and drove to Sierra del Moncayo. Drove up to the Monastery, which was a tiny church and a hotel. At the end of a dirt track, not maybe the best thing for a hired Toyota Yaris. The walked up a track, the moastery was at 1600M, and walked up about 2/300 more, to 1800M, the highest I have ever been.
Back to Zaragoza, had a few wines.
Monday work, quiet evening.
Tuesday work, went for a pizza with Anchel, (Spanish Qad guy) then more wine.
Wednesday work, walked into el Pillar, looked in the Cathedral, had some food and beer, went to an Irish pub, more beer and vodkas. Woke up feeling poorly, felt rough all Thursday. Was sick Thursday evening after a couple of glasses of wine.
An islamist plot to blow up 6 or 10 planes in flight was uncovered in Britain.
Friday, easy morning, off to airport. Flight cancelled, found out I can get a flight on Saturday from Vitoria, 250 km north, so OK, back and checked in hotel, then off to look at Pyrenees !
Nice drive, nice scenery.
Saturday up the toll road to Vitoria, Northern Spain is greener and cooler !
Long queue for flight, it was late, long queue for passport control in Stanstead, but eventually got in car, off to eat a bacon double cheeseburger ! Then a long drive, and fianlly arrived home at 21.00.
