Yes; I forgot to put my clock back before retiring……….silly me.
It has rained all morning so I watched the Grand Prix live on BBC IPlayer, I usually wait for them to produce the highlights version as it saves a small fortune when one is downloading via a dongle.
For all it’s promise it was a pretty processional and predictable affair at the front. The Indian Grand Prix looks to have the makings of an exciting high speed venue. We’ll see next year when it’s settled down. It was still superb to watch these drivers flicking cars through high speed chicanes and with the odd exception being inch perfect.
I just love watching the skill………Contrast it to golf, tennis, cricket or football. Just not worth watching for me. Indy car racing…….least said……..one starts the fastest at the front. Not Indy….they pay to invert the sensible order and get the carnage their aficionados so desire.
Vettel was dominant, Button didn’t disgrace himself, Hamilton had yet another coming together with Massa. No change in form in the top seven. I liked Hamilton's helmet…….decorated with Bob Marley’s ‘No Woman No Cry’. His girl friend has ditched him……….nice to see a bloke that can laugh at such adversity. Mind you going out with a lass called Nicole Schirtswinger is bound to cause problems, not the least of which is spelling or pronouncing Scherzinger. A good job these lads don’t drink much…………only the Lord knows what her name could degenerate into after a gallon of the falling down water.
We are just back in from a sunny stroll…….nothing to show for it but these two images. I have never noticed this before. The light green bits are Lichen growing in moss. I’ve spent a good half hour ploughing through images on the British Lichen site and just got more confused. The black splodges are also a Lichen. Forget them for the time being.
The light green is the same thing but I was focussing on the water droplets on the moss. There is a wonderful world in miniature lurking on stones in dry stone walls……………I’ll try not to become obsessive. A futile exercise if the month I spent crawling around after fungi is any thing to go by.
Tomorrow we move over to a place near Mansfield in Nottinghamshire. I’m looking for old coal mine remnants and seeing an old mate. The latter is guaranteed the former will be much harder. Evidence of the coal industry was obliterated by the government after the Thatcher/Scargill fiasco. Both bright but ultimately stupid people unfit for public office. Pride is a terrible thing………..that’s why I liked Lewis Hamiltons helmet.
Have a really good week.
