hi guys
well the time has come the walrus said to speak of many things etc etc

not really . I'm sitting the international airport in brisbane and its 12.30 in the morning and its still 2 hours till the plane takes off, but I'm coming to england for a few weeks. I know I've just missed the BMF :banghead but I'll get around abit . I'll be in london for a few days then on a bus tour of england scotland and ireland and wales ( have I missed any out ?) then I hire a car for 5 days . will catch up with Sam around then . anyone around who is interested in a cuppa let me know and I'll se if we can catch up. I'll be getting a local phone card for the mobile when I arrive so I'll be contactable. I've left the ausiie one with the girlfriend so the rest of oz can get stuffed for 3 weeks:devious :laugh
Minor panic with the luggage as i thought I could take 30 kg . turned out only 20 but mum WAS travelling light . managed to off load 7 kg into her bag and get us over the line within lmits . just as well I didn't pack a jar of vegemite or a case of fosters.
running out of credit on internet kiiosk so i'll update you from the UK

If your up north on the 3rd/4th October, we are sprinting on the Sat & circuit racing on the Sunday, at Elvington, 3 miles from Sam's house:) I'm sure we can fit you in, with a few bacon butties & a cuppa or 2:devious

never knew what sceptred isle meant even when I lived there. but then I didn't get alot of Will Shakespeare, although I did A Level English. Stu no doubt will be doing Stratford and taking in a couple of RSC performances between attending hill climbs with Sam :dowhat

If you're in London on Wed, Thurs or Fri this week, I'm on a course at the Intercontinental Hotel - Park Lane, so if you fancy a beer and a chat about TL's :)
Best of luck meeting Sam, he's always out!

hi guys
its friday am here and the internet cafes in kings cross are crap.
the hotel blocks everything the romanian one lunched my usb memory stick and the community one is linux based and has issues but is a bit of light in a dark space.

not sure where your up to but landed and had a great day in shep bush ( internet cafe and coffes great there) went to see la cage au folle at the playhouse . row 6 from the front and centre theatre top show and as the guest of the producer. ( 90 £ per head and free wooohooo ) good show worth seeing.

no comments here about the show content and how I came to get them gratis:doh

yesterday went to paris for the day. the tour was sold out but the first class was still available . so euro rail to paris !st class fed on the train etc etc . that sucker can exceed 150mph . went to the eiffel tower . boat trip on the seine and then to the louvre.
spotted a blue white TLR at the louve ( penske and fan mod iriium screen bluee white tank cover and rear seat . will post pics but who's is it . looks like a zoner from the mods.

saw the mona lisa. tiny picture compared to others around it. seriously ther were pics 12 ft high and the place is f'n huge. in total 18hr day and on only 3.5 hrs sleep. :banghead
today is a rest day then we move back the shep bush for sat night then on the 12 day bus tour.

will post pics when I find a venue that actually works.

I'm in IT and its f'n frustrating not being able to do the simplest things . can't even access the backend of my own web site:doh

http://s633.photobucket.com/albums/uu51/slangfield/

went to a couple of pubs last night

guiness is a lot smoother here but pubs are not really my scene

had fish and chips ( quite good) with mushy peas. really I was raised whith mushy f'n peas and I just don't get it. what about a nice bit of salad. F*** me :rant :lol

prices here are excellent. all meals were less than £7 including a decent steak. thats about 15au.:banghead
