You kept that quiet. Not sure what to say.

Sorry, no need to say anything.

Den's post simply brought back a very precious memory. Maybe I should have been a bit clearer. My first wife died very suddenly, out of the blue, when our kids were very young. It was a special treat she just happened to book for them the day before she died. In fact in all the turmoil at the time, I completely forgot about the trip until the tickets were delivered a couple of weeks later. Our youngest was too young to understand what had happened but, happily, Osem Jnr. was able to see the trip as a special goodbye from his mum who'd kissed him goodnight one evening but had 'gone to heaven' by the time he woke up the next day.

Seeing my cousin Jamie become world boxing champion, knowing that he beat a champ from Mexico who said he could not be beaten is my happy thought

More power to Mrs O, quite some achievement

Bravo Pisces, well done your cousin!

My happy thought, I will be celebrating a very special birthday on Tuesday, some of you will probably guess which one. So me and Mr Tink are off for a little 4 day break to the north coast of Cornwall.

It's gone up to 4.19 - it was 2.37 when I got it.

Very hard though.

As well as passing my medical on Friday, I got my interview appointment in the post yesterday. 13th August at the American Embassy, my birthday! Hoping to fly out around the 20th if all goes well.

The Wi-Fi in the First and Last allows me to use my Thunderbird client to send e-mail. Must be piggy-backed on VM somewhere. Means I don't have to wrestle with the web-mail

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

My running has been slacking off over the past few months so a couple of weeks ago I decided to buckle down and get back to my best. On my first day back I tried my usual pace and distance only to get ITBS which is a pretty nasty pain on the outside of the knee. I gave it up for a week and went back out on a run, different route and it started again after 2km. I bought an IT band strap for my knee to easy the pain which worked on my following run....until I walked the final few hundred metres taking past the place where I first had ITBS...and the pain kicked in at the exact same place.

Went and bought a quality wrap-around Neo G knee support instead which isn't actually for ITBS pain but since then I've been out on it 3 times (6 miles each) including tonight - albeit at a slightly slower pace - and the pain has not returned. Chuffed with that and my target of the Cardiff half-marathon in October is now back on
