Are we still on for tonight?


Well are we?

Elvis's third wife, I believe. ;)


That would be Costello rather than Abbott!

M'lud, I put forward the case that it is far more likely that a 64 year-old Englishman would not know Diana Krall than a 60+ Englishman would know nothing about football.

I rest my case - (on top of the wardrobe, actually.)

And I put it to you that motor racing types are more normally interested in music than football...(normal ones like me, anyway!)

Anyway, I know all there is to know about football.

Here's a song from Diana especially for Barry:

I get along without you very well

Is Diana Krall any relation to Norma Ann Sykes of MG B Mk III fame ?

Slip of the slip of the finger, or an apposite comment??

Just me being rubbish and not checking what I've written.

I should add that I don't know much about football either, being an Altrincham supporter. I am, though, familiar with the life and works of Ms Krall.

You had to be there - mind you Alan missed it despite being at the centre of the swapping!

Didn't we all! Personally I think it had to do with sex and travel!

There was also some discussion about the origins of "The Stig". If you believe Wikipedia, neither of the propositions put forward appear to hold water...

The character was the creation of presenter Jeremy Clarkson and the show's producer Andy Wilman. "Stig" was a nickname for new boys at their old school, Repton

The scanning of Autosport covers and articles is part of an on-going project Mr Boor, as for posting photos I would gladly do that but for some reason TNF doesn't like the site I host my photos on!

I suppose I could host them on Facebook but if I limit viewing so that they don't get stolen by some Italian person then they don't appear on TNF!

That's wrong! There should be a forward short leg AND a backward short leg.

Reminds me of the classic 'X is bowling with two short legs, one of them square'.

My favourite cricketing howler was on the Radio when it was said that "the batsman's Holding the bowler's Willey".

Other way round, Steve - 'the bowler is Holding, the batsman's Willey'.  ;)

Also to be treasured:

Lillee, caught Willey, bowled Dilley

When - at a time deemed best for most.

Where - Somewhere in the Southern reaches as the last one was "Up North".

EasyJet charges about £70 for a return flight from Gatwick to Malta, if you book early enough. Trouble is, Steve W would probably fall down the plane steps and everybody else would be at 35,000ft by the time Kingsleylate reached the airport. Also, I don't know whether EasyJet allows 1970s Formula Ford results sheets or bits of March 751 to be carried on as hand baggage...

To be fair, Steve did manage three days at Cholmondeley climbing up and down to the commentary position without mishap, so I think he has learned his lesson :)

Oi Arron! I must leap to the defence of Rob who hasn't always been the last to arrive and I have never fallen down any plane steps.
