Re: Forking good job - Bob Jackson Cycles

I've had a couple of bad experiences with Bob Jackson but, fair play, they made me a lovely fork for my Thorn Cyclosportif and the silver paint exactly matched the silver on the THORN decals. Wish I'd taken a photo of it clean! http://i256.photobucket.com/albums/hh173/SPINNERS1961/PTW/2007PBP18_zps7...

I only did one season but didn't bother on the 400km, had 15 mins on the 600km* and 4.5 hours in total on PBP (84 hours but on the road for four nights). A few years before I rode my one and only 24-hour TT and didn't sleep on that but promptly fell asleep in the passenger's seat before we'd even le...

'Three Billboards Outside Of Ebbing, Missouri' (2017) starring Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell.

A very good crime drama and darkly comedic too. 8/10.

I hope he gets himself sorted as he seems to be on the road to self-destruction.

Re: What Book Are You Currently Reading ... (And Why)?

'The Sky My Kingdom' by Hanna Reitsch. I've always liked aviation history and have started to re-read some of the biographies I've accumulated over the past 40 years.

Re: Goodbye Doddy

Very sad news. My earliest memories of TV feature Doddy and his "an audience with" ranks alongside the Billy Connolly one, I watch it whenever its shown on the box. I liked his songs too!
