And it started so well-but he was such a gracious loser-not a dry eye in the house

I liked his comment to the effect that at least he got a step nearer this year! Poor old And :- (

Will this one do, Geoff?

Kate-you've landed safely then-is it squelchy?-sorry about the £10

kate1123

I had the oddest drive to Cornwall, by the time we left the roads were empty, so although we saw a bit of rain, we had a good journey. My brother came for dinner so there are now no cakes or biscuits in the house.

I need a way to recoup my tenner.

My next tip is lympic related-put it on Murray to win gold.

I thought you might have to swim the last few miles-or at least push the boat out

kate1123

Can you give me a percentage chance of success?

I am really surprised it is freezing down here, I thought this was supposed to be much warmer than the south east.

sotongeoff

Cant do the percentages until I find out the number of entrants-you never know the Outer Mongolia entrant might have a secret talent.

What happened to the gulf stream-will you want the heating put on or did you pack your bed socks?

kate1123

It is July  and the heating is on!!!!!!!!!!

12% chance

sotongeoff

I don't think there is a summer heating allowance or cold weather payments for July-something for HMG to look at?

Someone has edited their post

kate1123

If only they knew someone who could supply logs free of charge

Is 12% worth a tenner?

6 years ago when the lymics were announced for London I did remark that he would be favourite for gold-have not changed my view

I do not have any witnesses to my statement to confirm-but my full house so nearly came up today-I will call that an unoccupied bungalow

I'm a lumberjack and I'm ok-I sleep all night and I work all day

kate1123

I will not be putting my tenner on him, so he should win.

The lumberjack I know has slept all afternoon, missed the washing up again

That is called timing-or was he just resting their eyes-did he bring his axe?

sotongeoff

Well today we are promised a dry day and the good news is all the hosepipe bans have been lifted-including Lottie's and I guess Pam's-now doesn't that make us all feel better?

Bradley Wiggins and Team Sky hold the yellow jersey in Tour de France. You could put a tenner on Bradley to be holding the jersey on the Champs-Elysees in a fortnight's time. He is actually the bookies favourite, though, personally, I regard it as very risky and shall not be investing. It's just too easy to fall off a bike. The odds are here:

The odds on Bradley winning are 10/11. I think that means that if you invest 10 shillings, and he wins, and you make 1 shilling. I really can't see that as the way to make a fortune.
