On the kids topic ... I am a father to be in March 2018 and you guys give me so much to look forward to :))
Congrats man :toast: Your 1st is definately the best, after that it's a mixed bag depending on how many you have, I have a 10 year old who I love the bones of and an 18mth who is a little shit already, not too mention the 2 in between I have inherited as my partner had 2 before we had our youngest together, now I hate children :banghead::cry::nutkick::laugh: have 1, 2 if you're brave, please for all that is holy in this world don't have more than 2, you will contemplate walking into traffic one day just to ease your suffering :roll:

it took probably 6 years for me and my first wife to conceive though we both did like a drink or ten back then as that was in our early 20's. When I got with my current partner and we discussed having another as I already had one and she had 2 I thought what the hell, will take a year or 3 anyway.... hit first time :banghead::roll:

2. Nice cup of tea
3. Deflation

lol, i'm not quite as ripped anymore (but still exercising). Craft beer has been my undoing.

FTR, that old man is 99% on growth hormone or steroids.

Bollocks


my fence just blew down, 3 panels so far but it doesnt look good for the rest of it. My 90 foot garden is on three levels and only the top bit is fenced, the rest is blockwork both sides thankfully. The wind blew in a huge high tide this morning and swamped the road and a couple of houses and cars.

Not a single streak of poop on the roof, the rain has washed it all off.


There was a Red Kite desperately battling the wind earlier, with our elevation he was pretty much eye level to me as he struggled up the valley, theres a nest 2 miles from here.....when i was a kid they nearly went extinct.

My wireless set up has finally been upgraded. I bought a Netgear 'Nighthawk' R7000-100UKS for £60 when it was selling for £140. I should have bought more so i could sell them on but I wonder if amazon would of honored the price if I ordered 5.

So far so good. Took a little while to set up but we are golden now.

Guy in gym I speak to (one of my customers) had scabs on knuckles. We talk weights then when the other gym coach moves away, he leans in and tells me his dog went for a deer. He breeds some tough dogs, well natured but still, a bit fierce. I ask did he set dog on deer, 'no', it just flew for it. I ask are the scars from punching the deer's skull in? No, it was from tussling with it as he bent it's neck to break it.
He would have let it go but his dog did a bit of damage so he felt it would be kinder to put it down.

That's tough nature..... Guy's a lovely bloke with a very, very colourful background!

you should of beat him with a 50kg kettlebell till he told you where he stashed the rest of it.

Its a matter of National Security... The Queen must also know where this meat is stashed...

We cant let this Venison fall into the hands of the enemy who like their meat well done.
