Just booked a four night break in the Algarve for the end of March, at the Tivoli Marina Vilamoura.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

Just booked some flights with BA to Larnaca in late September for a week away (we have a friend who has a villa near Çatalköy in North Cyprus).

I used BA Avios points and BA Amex Companion Voucher, so two Economy return flights Heathrow - Larnaca cost a total of £70 (if we booked flights the standard way, it would have cost us £610 in total).

Result!

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

Finally cracked the Rubik's Cube. Something I've been wanting to do for years. Took around 9 hours to learn it over 2-3 days or so.

Back in the 80's my uncle solved it on paper without touching the cube. Some people's brains are just wired that way.

When i was a teenager used to often complete it without a solution, i never really knew how i did it, it just happened randomly after getting the first 2 layers easily completed.

30 years later i can't even figure out how to complete 2 layers easily let alone complete it.

My nephew can do it in around 30 seconds, some 26 seconds of the record.


The fastest is 0.89 seconds, by a robot.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

I cheated.

I peeled off the sticky squares and put them all back in the right order then stuck it up with Uhu glue so it couldn't ever be mixed up again.

I was given it by a friend when they became popular, I hated that Rubik cube and I swear it hated me back!!!!!!!
