    Bad end to Daytona 500

    yup. Hard to imagine a sport any duller. Even darts is more entertaining!

    Bad end to Daytona 500

    It's hard to drive when you're playing a banjo, and have to keep remembering 'left, left, left'.....

    My children are ... is the 8th Anniversary of our son's adoption, after he joined us at the age of two, after a perfectly shite two years up to that point. He's now the 10 year old brother to our 15 year old daughter, and they are inseparable / fight relentlessly! Both are growing up into 'world citizens' here in the UAE, and will be set for life with friends all over the planet in years to come.

    3,000 mile rowing race

    ex-Gurkha brother-in-law did this a few years ago on a double-hander. Brutal, as you'd imagine. full 360 rolls in big swells, locked down in the tiny cabin - not fun!

    What's in your arsenal??

    it is indeed. My favourite 'weapons' experience was spending 5 hours on a cold January day punting a 19th Century Punt Gun on a river on the East Anglian coast, and getting the opportunity to fire the home-made punt gun - aged 11. a beast. Not this one, but VERY similar. The 'home made' element included a set of old motorcycle shocks in the mount,so as not to rattle the boat into matchwood.
