We had a run of going to watch the Easter jousting tournament at the Royal armouries in Leeds. It was fun.

I f*cking love you, Galted.

...and that was the last we saw of either of them, as they moved on to their new life together.

Probably having a little cuddle in Runcorn as we speak.  

Tird.  

That would break all sorts of CC rules.

I went to The Oval yesterday though which is probably in the general vicinity of G-Unit. I saw a lot of people striding purposely with rugged footwear so could well have been him.

Wish I hadn't gone to be honest. There was an inevitability that they would lose. As ever with England test cricket, it is the hope that kills you. Although we should applaud them really. It takes a special level of skill to bowl a team out for 191 in their first dig and still manage to lose by a whopping 157 runs.

I've got a roaring hangover today. Might not bother helping Mrs Windows with any work.

You're in luck, I'm in Houston at the moment. Kept it quiet as I wasn't sure I'd be allowed into the States and didn't want to have to spend two weeks pretending while you and Julius picked holes in my story.
You can all rest assured that, although I may be posting sporadically and at odd hours, the quality of my posts will in no way be compromised.

I don't think so, Jules. This is the very start of the season so it might delay it a touch but other than that, your house is still going to be crawling with potential killer spiders.

If this weather carried on for weeks which, sadly, it won't then it might mess them up a bit but I don't think a few warmer days will spare you from almost certain death from spider bites.

Our spider surge is considerably more dangerous than yours, Pee Jay.

Some people have had some really nasty nips from false widows. It will be a miracle if we all survive the Autumn.

A bloke got nipped by a shark the other day. Didn't survive.
Seems to be more attacks every year... or maybe more people swimming at isolated spots all year round? I blame wetsuits.

I think we'll be OK. Our house is fully protected by those spiders with really long thin legs that make messy webs (daddy long legs?) We also have some pretty big house spiders that range all over the place

Doing some work for Woolworth's at the moment, peej, in a pre covid world, we could have been having an IRL beer, maybe next year.

I don't think it breaks rules if it's intercontinental, right?

All part of the ecological disaster the human race are heading for, Pee Jay. We've over fished and encouraged sharks closer to shore looking for food and also encouraged them in by essentially chumming the coastlines so people can dive with them. Mostly "harmless" breeds but the bigger Apex sharks are following them in.

Really? That's my go to store down the road here.

Nah.. no restrictions for intercontinental meet ups. I've met a few posters already. If they send you down here we can go for an IRL beer for sure.

There's a big push to open up soon. Gathering momentum with jabs after being slow to start. They're also about to introduce vaccine passports because obviously they want the Ashes to go ahead. Resort style accommodation for players and families is being organised as we type.

I know about crane flies. The same term is sometimes used for harvestmen too (which I think are spectacular btw) I was trying to look for the correct name on the web and the first place I looked used that term.

The shame..

So what's a cellar spider then? We have those flimsy looking crane flies (with wings) and also what we call daddy long legs spiders. Some can get quite big. They don't have wings. The abdomen can be as big as a large grain of rice... or even slightly bigger. They love corners of ceilings and wet areas. I always leave them where they are to devour other smaller insects... especially mosquitoes. They do that vibrating thing (without the use of any sex aids) when disturbed.

That's a good read.

Had a tiny mark on my arm just below the elbow a few weeks back. I may have been bitten by something whilst reaching into the pool hutch to turn the filter pump switch on. Noticed there were many more fine webs there that day. About an hour later this tiny mark got really itchy. Gave it a good scratch. Then the wound got a bit shiny and blistery looking. Fast forward a day and there was a black scab there. I've been putting all sorts of creams on it (savlon, betadine, calamine lotion... even squeezing lemon juice and dabbing aftershave on it. (I like that stinging sensation!)  All that's resulted is a mark which looks as though it will be there for a while now. Maybe some salt water might help?

That's a good read.

Had a tiny mark on my arm just below the elbow a few weeks back. I may have been bitten by something whilst reaching into the pool hut to turn the filter pump switch on. Noticed there were many more fine webs there that day. About an hour later this tiny mark got really itchy. Gave it a good scratch. Then the wound got a bit shiny and blistery looking. Fast forward a day and there was a black scab there. I've been putting all sorts of creams on it (savlon, betadine, calamine lotion... even squeezing lemon juice and aftershave on it. (I like that stinging sensation!)  All that's resulted is a mark which looks as though it will be there for a while now. Maybe some salt water might help?

Cut your arm off. Only way to be safe.

Mind the windows Tino.

Hi there, I was bitten around 20 years ago by a False Widow Spider on my lower right leg which resulted in an egg shaped lump filled with pus and dead tissue – I could barely walk – once burst a 1.5 inch hole wide and deep right to the bone appeared and although a very fine layer of skin which took 4 years to grow over the wound it is still completely numb to the touch! The bite most definitely killed the tissue right to the bone and I cannot tell you the relief when the abscess finally burst however, the smell of rotten flesh/tissue even made me want to vomit and believe me I do not have a weak stomach!

Laugh  Was thinking a bit of sandpaper and petrol might do the trick.

I'm not Neddy Smith by the way.

Had a bizarre experience in 2007 when I was recovering in hospital after breaking my leg. There was this shady bloke in the same ward who started chatting with me as I was coming back to my senses... high on morphine. He was proud to call himself a bagman for a notorious criminal and was telling me all sorts of stories I really wasn't expecting to hear. Guns, robberies, loose women, being on the run and hiding from the cops... or paying them off. That sort of thing. At the time the Australian Open was on and we were both watching it... the comments he made were hilarious. Then his daughter turns up for a visit. About my age. First thing she does before saying hello to him is "What's he been telling you?" Anyway, to cut a long story short; I ended up getting her phone number. Turns out she lived only a few blocks away. Never used it though. Too scared to bump into her Dad even though we got on very well. He even said that I'd make a great gangster. I must have been spilling my beans too after the operation.

Mum was a beekeeper but didn't do well with stings. She got stung on the face once and could barely see with the swelling.

I don't think so, Jules. This is the very start of the season so it might delay it a touch but other than that, your house is still going to be crawling with potential killer spiders.

If this weather carried on for weeks which, sadly, it won't then it might mess them up a bit but I don't think a few warmer days will spare you from almost certain death from spider bites.

I'm preparing for the spider surge here now. The days and nights are getting warmer.

Our spider surge is considerably more dangerous than yours, Pee Jay.

Some people have had some really nasty nips from false widows. It will be a miracle if we all survive the Autumn.

A bloke got nipped by a shark the other day. Didn't survive.
Seems to be more attacks every year... or maybe more people swimming at isolated spots year round?

All part of the ecological disaster the human race are heading for, Pee Jay. We've over fished and encouraged sharks closer to shore looking for food and also encouraged them in by essentially chumming the coastlines so people can dive with them. Mostly "harmless" breeds but the bigger Apex sharks are following them in.


Went swimming off Freeport the other day. Was sh*tting it as the water was murky as f*ck but didn't want to lose face with all the p*ssed up Russkis on the beach.

Fortunately it was fairly shallow so could wade out quite far and splash about in knee-deep water. Returned with all limbs intact though it didn't do my day one sunburn any good.
