So Fred we now know who wears the pants at the stablescheesy.gif !

Now today in London we have nor rain, middle of JUly and max temp forecsat of 15C, good here isnt it! Meanwhile Waitrose have another 3 beers for £5 on offer so will be up there later this morning, it includes "Spitfire" and "London Pride" will let you know what others later, do think of these when you are drinking your Thai drink tonightbiggrin.png one of the few advantages here!

Olympic timetables went into action yesterday, great start, Victoria Line completely closed for the weekend.

Another nice touch, Bruce Springstein and Paul Macartney do a gig in a central London Park had there equipment turned off at 1030 to comply with local by-laws, amazing.

How did you know that Mrs H/M resides in the stable's ??? Just to update you she is allowed in the Mansion but only to shower & clean the place.

Enjoy your beer's H/M cant wait for a good glass of bitter, have now changed from Thai beer to German stuff and very nice it is too all be it a little pricey at just over £2 a pint but still cheaper than the stuff in Blighty. Have been told that there is a wholesaler in K.P.P. that sell's the stuff cheaper will pop along today and have a gander.

So Paul M was cut orrrf at 10.30pm If H/M had been in charge he would have been cut orrrf before he had started.

Today Blue sky's temp at 9.45am 30c that's to us 86f light breeze well that's in K.P.P. In N/S it's more than likely the same except you wont be able to see the Sky through the haze. And I have heard that your river is still in full flow and muddy as usual, don't blame us for the water flow as here it's almost stopped.

Only another month + to go enjoy.

N/B Have been informed that exeter (The only falang now left in N/S) cant wait for you to get back so he has someone to talk/splutter to.

H/M K.P.P.

I am back on the Broadside now, lovely drop of stuff! Today we have blue skies, yesterday we did not! How surprising! Ready to come back, weighing the items to go in the case, I am hoping this time to fall in line, last year was 4 kilos over! Does anyone know if they ever weigh the hand luggage?

Wetherspoons I saw the other day had a beer on sale at 2.7% still £1.99 a pint so I dont know why you buy that rather than a flavourful ale unless you were going to attempt to drive!

I am awaiting a letter with the timings of a special train from Kings Cross to Edinburgh next wednesday. A rare sight is in view, a Deltic "Alycidon" north and the newly built "Tornado" returning much later in the day, I will settle for the Deltic.

You may recall that 2 RAF Tornados crashed recently, they have found the other plane and recovered one of the bodies, they apparently hit head on.

Hand luggage is weighed now and they do it big time well that's in heathrow it's 5kg max. Last year H/M had 6.5kg and they made me take out the 1.5 and squeeze it in my case that then came to just under 35kg well over the 30kg aloud but they didn't seem to care about that only the hand stuff seem's the rule's are no more than 5kg on the plane. I flew with EVA but have been with other airline's and they all seem to be the same. BKK well their a law unto themselves and have never in over 20 year's had hand luggage weighed.

You might have to take out the odd bit Dave. Tip, what ever you do not the English Bitter, or the Marmite come to that.

I am coming back with Emirates, last year they weighed my hold luggage at 34kg should have been 30kg and I had to remove 4 kgs, they did not weigh my hand luggage ( 7 kg ) so ended up taking my 7kg + 4kg in the cabin!

The weather is suppossed to improve next week, promises, promises and strikes in the offing too. Immigration officers on the 26th and East Midlands Trains have have announced 3 dates in the 2 weeks of the olympics, cricket is going well though.

New safety rule's no more than 5kg in overhead locker per person??? well that's what's I was told. My ticket said I could have 7kg but on arrival at airport Heathrow they would only let me take 5kg but they let me put the over amount in case. I think it's up to who serve's you. My chum had the same problem they had already sent his case through but they found a box and packed his over's in that and sent in through as hold luggage. Over here it's TIT I now think over there it's TIE. Or toss a coin. You can alway's pay for the extra kg but I think they charge you in excess of £20 a kg. EEEEEEEK.

Enjoy the strike's. Only 4 week's to go.

So it's the King Canute ploy is it exeter. May H/M advise you not to bother. Why you may ask well to start with you will need a beach and they are in short supply in N/S that muddy area next to the fast flowing brown sludge you call a river is not a beach, yes I know that Dave had put a few sack's of sand down before he left but alas that has now been washed away.

Second N/S has flooded several time's to my knowledge over the last few year's well every year come to that, point in question in the last 6 the By-Pass has been closed at least 3 time's must admit that last year was a real humdinger though.

This year you wont have a problem trust me on that that's because the river Ping here is now down to a trickle sand bank's every ware, and the dam in Tak is less than half full, Last year it was full and they let it all go in one hit, hence you and half of Thailand copped it big time.

If I'm wrong I'll be willing to put you up in one of H/M stable's, of course there will be a small charge.

H/M K.P.P.

N/B one of the hotel's here has just had a revamp and they have re named it World Heritage Hotel just wondering where they got the name from.

The weather here as picked and went to a BBQ yesterday, outside! Forecast to continue good for the rest of the week, but, the coming weekend will see it all end.

Now moving onto another old favorite Badger Brewerey Tanglefoot, helps pass the time. I ran down the road with a Pifco torch yesterday but no one turned out, no one noticed, the Olympics are no big deal here!

What is it with you mob from N/S. First exeter think's he's royalty to-wit King Canute and I do believe as I tap he's trying to hold back the water's. Now you Dave with a pifco torch I could see you doing that especially after a few Tanglefoot's, but the running bit I find very hard to believe.

H/M think's it may be time for him to open a funny farm down there seems I'll have several taker's.

All day and all night on the news this gold fag holder is being trailed round the country, now its in London, tomorrow it comes to my borough, I am not staying in to see come past my house! But I will be up early tomorrow, at 650am, a deltic is coming out of Kings Cross heading for Edinburgh, I suppose that has left most folks perplexed but if you have ever seen or heard one you will understand, particularly as I and friends helped save it from the cutters torch 30 years ago. The sound is as iconic and distinctive as a Spitfire, Lancaster or Concorde. Edited by nong38

Little bit of trivia about the Deltic at 90mph they were only doing 1200 rpm some feat A. Enjoy Dave.

Who would have thought than an infernal combustion engine would ever gather the same devotion as hot steam.

What you have to consider HR is Dave live's in N/S and anything has go to be more exciting than that.

Paint drying now there a thought, if you go there now you might see another farang 'some sort of royalty I believe' that's trying to hold the water's back, say's it all really. I dont know if you've seen it but there is someone that is looking for a house to rent there N/S that is, sometime's I think there's just no hope.

The deltic "Alycidon" came through 10 minutes late and exhaust putting a steam engine to shame, I hope it gets to Edinburgh! A fine site none the less and many others out to see it as well. The A1pacific "Tornado" leaves Edinburgh for the return leg.

32C today but sun has gone so very humid.

The new beer offer up at Waitrose is 8 cans of Marstons pedigree for £8, which is where I came in, Pedigree was on offer when I arrived and the offer finishes on the day I fly out. NIce finish.

This friday on the Euromillions lottery 100 millionaires will be created as well as £105m jackpot, thought I might have a dabble, beats the thai effort!

Toodle Pip!

Ten Min: late dash poor show. I bet with all the Diesel fume's it was belching out it must have seemed like you were home again in N/Smog.

Hope you have a good result on the lottery, just think if it's a large amount you could up stick's and move to somewhere decent. One can alway's dream what.
