Now what is this ? I've tried to identify it from the internet but without success. It wonders around in the company of a male Mallard and looks virtually black but closer inspection reveals glossy green feathers - about the same size and shape as a Mallard. I guess it could be some kind of mutant or a cross..
A trip to Blackpool Tuesday night to view the illuminations - to my mind not as good as in the old days . Now is this all in the mind ?? Were things always better then in the past ? One good thing - the OAP Bus Pass can now be used on the promenade trams but only up to 11 o'clock at night.. Weather was pleasant - quite mild and the rail journey fast and on time. .
After a shaky start to the football season Manchester City have certainly sprung into action during the last two weeks. A 3-0 Champions League win over Plzen followed by a 4-1 win over rivals Manchester United on Sunday. Last night in the League Cup they took their revenge for the FA Cup defeat and beat Wigan 5-0. Hopefully City are now in their stride and nothing will impede their progress. .
Manchester City 0 Stoke 0 is not a result that will be welcomed by the owners of Manchester City Football Club. A very slow and stuttering start to the 2013/2014 Premier League. The new signings - mainly from Spanish clubs were to herald fast flowing football and great success. For the start of the European Championship commencing Tuesday what are we going to see ?? Await Tuesday !!! .
Well it's very hot for the UK and we've not had rain for a few weeks so I expect that soon we'll be issued with warning about water shortage. I await the hosepipe ban any day now. What are the odds for a ban being announced next week ? On the plus side my gas consumption is way down. Profits for E-on will be down as well this summer. .
