  • Calman: Countdown working fine on my end now.  Can you tweak it to run half way into a race, so I have a chance of earning more than 10 points in the GG? lol

  • Wizzo: Countdown working for you now?

  • Ian: Wiz or Slugs, have we lost chatroom and who's online ?
    June 05, 2018, 09:19:29 AM
  • Calman: Mr Happy over here Wizzo, so it's all good,  Cheers!
    April 10, 2018, 02:17:21 AM
  • Wizzo: Its not a problem Cal, its better than waiting for your pictures to be approved.
    April 09, 2018, 10:24:22 AM
  • Calman: Hi Wizzo ... I am trying to understand the system, not change it, so appologise if my attempts to add to the gallery are causing any unessesary stress!
    April 09, 2018, 05:56:12 AM
  • Wizzo: To be honest its a very long time since we had any issues with members photos. I have changed the permissions so that images no longer need admin approval
    April 08, 2018, 03:14:05 PM
  • Calman: Thanks for the info and approval on my 1st photo Wizzo, really appreciate it.  So, who is the best member to contact for photo approval (as I am aware that you mostly appear online over the weekend).
    April 08, 2018, 01:44:45 AM
  • Scott: When I do my GG picks, I get a warning that the website is not secure up on the browser address...using Safari.  Anyone else get anything like that?
    April 07, 2018, 09:34:27 PM
  • Wizzo: Yes the gallery does not inform the admin when a new picture is posted so we either have to check everyday or its just easier when you post a picture to let one of us know. Yours has been approved.
    April 07, 2018, 06:56:03 PM
  • Calman: Can anyone shed light on why an image I uploaded to the gallery 24+ hours ago is still pending approval? ... thank you.
    April 05, 2018, 06:34:01 AM
  • Calman: Took a HUGE gamble with my Bahrain Race predications, so let's see how crazy a race it may be!
    April 02, 2018, 11:26:21 PM
  • Calman: Lovely, will have to think about some predictions for Bahrain in the next few days!!
    March 29, 2018, 01:02:51 AM
  • Wizzo: Grid Game countdown all working again. Don't forget your predictions!
    March 28, 2018, 12:11:49 PM

I'd love to see this race come back on the calendar. Slim chance by the sound of it as the numbers don't seem to stack up but never say never.

As some of you will know, I have been very busy with work this year and have not been able to find the time to post very much as a result.  Even when I have had time though, I have found myself unable to post anything because I cannot find enough positives to say about Formula 1 any more and I dislike being so negative all of the time about a sport that I used to love so very much.

I keep being mystified as to why those in charge of Formula 1 and some commentators and pundits keep saying that 2018 is such an exciting season.  Yes, the championship is close between Hamilton and Vettel and there are some exciting new drivers coming through, such as Leclerc, but the actual racing (aside from Austria because of unreliabilty and Germany because of the rain) has been dismal.  It struck me just how poor modern Formula 1 racing is when I saw some clips from some races in the mid 1980s, when, just as now, there were no pitstops for fuel and drivers had to drive to the limits of their fuel tanks, resulting in some running out of fuel in the closing stages.  On the face of it, that doesn't sound like a lot of fun.  Why then are these races so much more interesting to watch clips from?  For me, it comes down to the fact that there was more racing (i.e. genuine overtaking without DRS assistance), more unreliability and driver errors (which made the races much less predictable) and a tyre war going on between three tyre manufacturers which would change who was setting the pace on some weekends.  In other words, there were far more variables taking place in a race than there are now.

Races now are governed by who can stop their tyres from wearing out.  Nobody is really pushing, the drivers don't look in the least bit tired after a race, and the cars are almost as prestine as they were prior to the start.  This, for me, is not how Formula 1 should be at all and it has got to the point where it's almost risibile to call it the pinnacle of motorsport in my opinion.  How can the pinnacle of motorsport justify using DRS to generate easy overtakes and force the drivers to drive slowly because otherwise the tyres will 'fall off the cliff'?

Is it just me who feels this way or are any of the rest of you as disullsioned as I am?

This is a bit risque, so if that doesn't appeal...

A woman decides to have a face lift for her 50th birthday.
She spends $15,000 and feels pretty good about the results.
 

On her way home, she stops at a news stand to buy a newspaper.  Before leaving, she says to the clerk, 'I hope you don't mind my asking, but how old do you think I am.

'About 32,' is the reply.'

'Nope! I'm exactly 50,' the woman says happily.

A little while later she goes into McDonald's   and asks the counter girl the very same question.

The girl replies, 'I'd guess about 29.'  The woman replies with a big smile, 'Nope, I'm 50.'

Now she's feeling really good about herself.  She stops at a candy shop on her way down the street.

She goes up to the counter to get some mints and asks the assistant the same burning question.

The clerk responds, 'Oh, I'd say 30.'

Again she proudly responds, 'I'm 50, but thank you!'

While waiting for the bus to go home, she asks an old man waiting next to her the same question.

He replies, 'Lady, I'm 78 and my eyesight is going.  Although, when I was young there was a sure-fire way to tell how old a woman was.  It sounds very forward, but it requires you to let me put my hands under your bra.  Then, and only then I can tell you EXACTLY how old you are.'

They wait in silence on the empty street until her curiosity gets the better of her.

She finally blurts out, 'What the hell, go ahead.'

He slips both of his hands under her blouse and begins to feel around very slowly and carefully.

He bounces and weighs each breast and he gently pinches each nipple.

He pushes her breasts together and rubs them against each other.

After a couple of minutes of this, she says, 'Okay, okay.....How old am I?'

He completes one last squeeze of her breasts, removes his hands, and says, 'Madam, you are 50.'

Stunned and amazed, the woman says, 'That was incredible, how could you tell?'


 

'I was behind you at McDonalds'

Apparently it's love-hate

I know what he means - he loves being in F1 and I hate him being in F1. Simple.

So, I am not normally someone bothered about meeting 'famous' people, I can take it or leave it.  But last night due to where I work, I had the opportunity to meet Major Tim Peake (briefly) at the launch event of the Soyuz Tour.  I simply had to get a photograph taken with the man as after all, how often am I going to be in the company of someone who has been in space and lived on the International Space Station?!

So, anyone else been unexpectedly star struck?
