So I am sitting here having consumed a modest yet adequate amount of Guinness and a couple of cheeky shots of Bourbon and feel the urge to post in my blog, namely that I feel the need to discuss cycling again
Cycling has been a passion of mine since i was a child and along with my kid it is the one thing I enjoy dearly in life. So as per my last blog post about bikes I talked about how my last rig was stolen. It was not the first bike I have had nicked (That is english slang for stolen for t
So as I elucidated on a past blog entry (link) I am a wee bit crazy about cycling, fanatical would probably be a good way of putting it. Back then I was riding a Kona Dew Deluxe (2010 model), and it got used a hell of a lot…doing a 12km commute during the weekdays and probably notching up a further 5 Km’s over the weekends, in short she got rode hard (no innuendo intended). But last month some piece of !@#$ decided to steal my rig…and not off the street but from the ‘secure’ underground car/bike
So its 2012 and my year began on a sad note as my father passed away on the 29th December 2011, it was an event that overshadowed everything. Having spent Christmas with him I have endearing memories of both my father and 2 year old son interacting, it gave me great pleasure to see that...something made even more poignant by his passing days later. The grief is not overwhelming tbh but it is ever present, in the back of my mind at all times is this sadness I know I cannot shake off.
I am not su
Living in London most of my life there has always been a measure of exposure to American Football, mainly from the game being televised here in the late 80's/early 90's (some of you older Brits might remember it being on Channel 4 back in the day). That said I could never claim to be a bonafide aficionado of the game, but by the same token I am not exactly hostile to it. The Superbowl has always been a big draw, mainly for the sheer spectacle of the event (Lets face it the Yanks know how to put
So its the 26th and if your household is anything like mine you have a ton of turkey and so other meat to be nibbled on, so the question is what to do with this mound of meat taking space in your fridge, oven, etc. Here is a recipe I do which takes its influence from Turkish and Indian cuisine.
1.5 tsp cumin
1.5 tsp Coriander
1.5 tsp turmeric
1.5 tsp Ground ginger
300ml plain yoghurt (preferably Greek yoghurt)
30 ml lemon juice
For as long as I can remember I have been nutz about cycling. Being a city boy I was naturally crazy about BMX's but once I hit my teens I got the mountain bike vibe pretty strong. My first decent off road rig was a Gary Fisher 1991 Super Calibre, which at the time was awesome...in hindsight the design has not aged well but hey when I was riding that rig I did not have a care in the world.
I pretty much rode the Gary Fisher for nigh on 8 years before cracking the frame, Not being particularly f
I have not really utilized this blog as much as i would like, and with RL eating up my time in recent months my CN presence in general has taken a battering (largely due to the arrival of my son but also to a larger workload that my employers have dumped on me). But hopefully now i can contemplate getting back into the swing of things and begin reacquinting myself with Planet Bob
So whats on my mind atm? well as usual its my beloved ODN, being a patriot can be a heavy burden and serving ODN h
My nation got past the 1000 day mark a few days ago, it was an event i shared with my fellow ODNistas but not with CN at large, but i feel almost embarrassed for some reason to post this in the OWF so i thought i would post it here in my blog...
So there you have it, this is my nations story so far, so thank you Admin for providing some of the best of times and some of the worst; its been awesome , I look forward to another 1000 days and can only wonder what I shall see in the months ahead.
Well i am not sure what kind of crap i am going to fill this blog up with but for starters i think a Tea reference is in order....
Earl Grey Tea
Just the other day a work colleague made himself a cup of Earl Grey , nothing out of the ordinary in that i hear you say however he proceeded to add milk to it! i could not believe what i was seeing?!? Earl Grey should always be served black! :jihad:
