    I love the way the awful jokes come lumbering into view - they are not afraid of re-using gags again and again. They are also ripping the shit out of the TV industry - however, judging the way they used good light and got in some brilliant travel shots - which they then fekked about with but the brilliant filming of your lovely scenery was top notch. - it is shot by pros, scripted by a comic genius. now let us turn attention to Mr Canoehead and what it might reveal about what it means to be Canadian Dylan

    POTUS Takes Russians Side Vs FBI, CIA, etc.

    he called the BBC fake news - that did it for me - having worked there for decades I know that they take the truth really, really seriously. I do find your media coverage astonishing - almost everyone looks wonderful -.no-one is ugly - everyone has great teeth that are as even as a piano keyboard - but so very much whiter. The experts and analysts can turn their hand to analysing anything at any time, The women look lovely - they nearly all wear false eyelashes. They are so astonishingly good at their jobs. The old blokes all look trustworthy and even they are mostly lovely to look at too. Look at how polished and nuanced this 4 mins of brilliant TV is This is a golden age for news TV Dylan

    POTUS Takes Russians Side Vs FBI, CIA, etc.

    This is the greatest story ever told and I am fascinated by it. I spent an hour or so watching the US media coverge this morning - as is now part of my morning routine as a retired old journo. As yet I see no significant cracks in the Republican carapace. . I hear blather from analysts and columnists and the talking classes. I see outrage from the usual anti-trump GOPers - those who have already thrown in the towell on politics and Trump and are leaving the stage anyway As far as I can see the base is strong - their faith in the fakeness of the media and their willingness to believe the last thing Trump said remains strong. A decade or more ago I spent a few years working in the mid west, I heard some pretty insane, racist and extreme religionist talk from mid-western far righters and avid churchgoers..."america going to hell in a handbasket " was a classic phrase I heard again and again. Lots of them seemed willing to tear it all down just to spite the liberal minded coast dwellers who they felt had been running the show for far too long. I was a guest and as a hack I was not covering politics at the time - so I listened with interest and soon realised that any counter arguements would be useless. I heard some pretty extreme talk - at the time I thought it was very very fringe.. I thought they would never get their way because of the voting power of the slightly more liberal east and west coasters. Man was I ever wrong. We now have the arguement - which could be summarised by "so what if the Russians changed the election.... so what if Trump colluded....at least we got the liberal hands off the reins of power and here is a man who speaks the way I feel" I don't think that tapes of bed wetting or agreeing deals with Russian hackers will do anything to mitigate their overhwlming hate of anyone who does not agree with the simple principles of the base - which are more or less "we won - the liberals lost" I am a bit of a history buff. I see echoes of England in the 1630s, The eastern United States in the 1850s and Germany in the 1930s. I am not saying civil strife in inevitable or even likely - but you guys are walking a very dangerous road when you decide that passion is more important than facts. I am a long term fan of American energy, hospitality, drive, willingness to achieve the seemingly impossible. As a Brit whose father was conscripted to fight in the African desert I have an inherited gratitude for the way that the Americans came to Europe twice to expend their lives of the finest young men. to sve europe from tyranny. I live in east anglia where there were scores of airfields built by the Americans. Those fine young men from all over America flew out of east anglia to die in the skies of Germany, I know the areas of Devon and Cornwall where other fine young Americans came to train for the Normany landings where so many of them died. I am a great admirer of your country. But blow me - something has gone wrong. I think that Putin meddled, Trump conspired. That is almost certainly fact. More people voted against Trump than for him - but the base is deep and strong and united. The liberals are weak, disgorganised, under bad/week leadership. I see the Chuck and Nancy show standing at mahogany lecterns in Washington mumbling stuff past their 80 year old false teeth - and I see Trump rallying the base with with power, wit, hate, lies and passion. Then I despair. America really does seem to be heading to hell in a hand-basket. I wish you well - but I fear the worst. Maybe yesterday was a turning point.. . maybe the mid teerms will be a turning point...maybe not. You old liberal minded net jockies who expend so much energy pointlessly flaming the scores of right wing (or putin powered) sock puppets who infest every forum should divert some of that energy and creativity to putting America back in a place where truth, honesty and decency are respected once more.

    I see no sign of republicans moving away from the base the ones who speak out are the ones who are already toast. D

    I assume it was mainly cash - an HR of that length is an expensive thing to keep - slip fees, haulouts, replacement parts, engine repairs and servicing. Looking at their video stats they were not making enough money to cover the costs... they are going to try something different from the tits in the sun schtick - wooden chicks and mahogany decks perhaps. Good for her being prepared to scale down - as for the idea of trailering their new woody.... maybe... maybe not. All that aside the films are better made than most sailing vlogs and certainl better than kiwi man and eastern european chicks from Ceil. We are lucky blokes to have such a diverse panoply of sailing based entertainment. D

    I started a thread... it seems sensible and polite to read the responses. I seldom click on a thread started by NM as it is often a cut a paste from Central Control.
