You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

Internet archives, man. I’ve been trying to find out a bit more about the house I grew up in; some local authorities are much better than others about digitising planning records. I just came across the drawings and forms for an extension we had built in 1972 and it had my dad’s handwriting and signature on it from before he had his first stroke. Proper got to me, that did.

Funny old thing, because GDPR means that all current applications are anonymised before they go online these days. I can’t really see any harm in a 48 year old signature online, but seeing it pop like that, wow.

Tomorrow we go again.

Just reading this makes me believe the future of my industry isn’t finished.

Excellent stuff :) Hear Slunglow are doing some amazing stuff! They could do with some help with their website though, shame it's not my thing. Wonder if there's any Ballers who could help?

My 15-year-old daughter recently asked me to teach her how to play football. She's very athletic - a keen climber and does karate - but this is her first solid interest in The Beautiful Game. Today we bought A Proper Football and went to the park together for a kick about. She loved it. And now she plans to watch Leeds v Stoke with me.

Her normal life is over.

Getting a request for parental guidance from a 15 year old? I don’t understand.

Ah well, yer see, it's an old hunter's trick. Don't bother the fuckers with your music likes or your football shite - let them come to you and ask. If they never do, their loss.
First born lass, now 28, came to love Marvin, Bobby and Al all by herself [and a load of other guff, of course]. Lad is nerdy and uninterested in sport or music - he's into films - so I don't expect to hear from him. And now the youngest is discovering football. [Though she does still love Taylor Swift - I'm ignoring that aspect.]
All you have to do is bide yer time.

The Swansea (Gower) sea is alive with Mackerel, Bass, and Black Bream.
Calm seas forecast for all this coming weekend.

Leeds top of the table and summer days out on my boat - life does not get much better.

More that 15 year olds seem primarily focussed on defining their own world on their own terms, by way of standing in opposition to all that stands around them. But hey, enjoy it while it lasts. And know that you'll destroy her life forever when we lose to Stoke.

I was there, our Ex player and Rhondda boy Alan Curtis scored against us and Bob Latchford bagged a hat-trick.

Our fans threw cans and other missiles at a poor young John Lukic - a bad day at Black Rock as they say.

Me and Mrs O just did the zero percent balance transfer thing. Ended up with a smidge over £20k more credit than we used to have. I only want it to book the odd trip or buy bits online.

:shock:

You and her.....probably.

You do realise you can contact them and ask them to amend it down?
