    The Crisp Crack Of Leather On Willow

    Root must have a niggle surely? I think one of the problems of having him as captain is that he doesnt bowl himself enough. Maybe he didn't want to dent the confidence of Bess and Leach by out bowling them?

    My heart says Wolves win, my head says Wolves win (maybe), my bowels is another story.

    Steve, read it again. I was doing the old "are you trying to start an argument" "no I'm not" conversation. Fwiw, you're totally right, but the ignore facility is a great help.

    Oh, no it isn't .
  5. Don't know anything about SATS or GCSE's I don't teach them. I can only speak from my own experience working with SEN. Baking comes under HE and years back when I did teach in mainstream there was definitely a car mechanics class and we did pottery. Farming gets covered in Geography.

    Maybe the tears are because Daddy didn't pardon them yesterday.
  7. Schools are very interested in what parents do. They need to know if they are key workers or not! Regardless of that reasoning I've always had a pretty good idea of what my parents do for a living and we are quick to try and utilise those skills. Don't remember any potters over the years, but plenty of the others mentioned. This year we have a couple who used to be "church planters" - I have to say that was a new one on me.

    Better still, for those of us who have them on ignore, people could stop quoting their garbage.

    The Australians really don't help themselves do they. Actions on the field don't back up all the talk about changing their approach. Disappointed in Paine, he really needs to set a better example.

    Swindon Robins 2020

    With Clark Osborne involved the only thing that would surprise me is if they end up with the promised new stadium.

    Give them a chance. They haven't made the evidence up yet.

    Sad to hear. Thoughts with all family and friends.

    He'll find a way. Not so sure that this drive to ban him from various social media platforms is the right thing. It just allows his more extreme supporters to confirm their prejudices. I think on balance free speech should be allowed, it's up to us as individuals whether we read it or believe it. Though I accept that there is evidence that his lies are easily swallowed by far too many.

    Aye right! If Trump had scraped over the line by any means you would have been swinging from the lampshades telling us all to suck it up. No doubt. Now others have pointed out to you the simple reasons for Trump's increased vote, will you stop posting your bs links and falsehoods? I'd be surprised.

    100% agree. The ignore option is a wonderful thing, but unfortunately people keep quoting their nonsense. I don't understand why, if you're so obsessed with peddling the extreme views that are constantly posted on here, you would choose to spend large amounts of your time posting them on a Speedway Forum. Surely in the big world wide web they can find a more suitable and receptive audience?

    There were plenty on the Covid thread who were slagging off the Kiwi approach to the pandemic, but I know where I'd prefer to be living at the minute! (Apologies for bringing Covid onto this thread - should leave it where it belongs) Fair play to the Black caps for their success - couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of cricketers. They seem to eschew sledging - apart from Wagner and even he does it in a pantomime villain sort of way - and they are the first to congratulate the opposition. When Fawad got his ton in the first test they literally queued up at the end of the over to shake his hand, you don't see England the Aussies or India do that.

    R.I.P. Colin Bell

    A real icon of the 70's. There is good footage of him demolishing Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the early 70's. Always seemed to be photographed in that classic red and black striped kit. Don't forget he was practically finished at 29 when badly injured in a Manchester derby.

    Maybe Warren Beatty is going to announce the winner? Maybe that's the big plan!

    I must have missed them. Aren't no balls now supposed to be called by the off field umpires? More class from Williamson backed up by another big score from Nicholls who definitely rode his luck. I lost count of the lives he had. I have a friend whose been living in Christchurch for the last 18 months. Supposed to be a career break but talking to her over Christmas I don't think she has any intention of coming back - life over there is good at the best of times but at the moment the contrast between there and UK is massive.
  25. He might not have had a positive test (there was less testing at that time) but he had got all the symptoms hadn't he? Hence the need to check his vision. Wasn't he that weak he could hardly stand earlier on his visit to Durham. Though I agree it was different to the case of the MP hopping on a train back to Glasgow.
