Another good result for Cheltenham Town this afternoon - Plymouth 0 Cheltenham 2.  Cheltenham are at present 3rd position in League 2, their best start for some years (far too early in the season to start talking of promotion). Next match is next Saturday when they are at home to Crewe who are currently in 2nd position.

ooo will be a good game I think EL

Good morning everyone it's very humid which is a little surprising after the cold nights we've had recently. I'm glad the old songs went down so well Ros, I thought they would be popular.  Nice that everyone joined in as well. 

 

Enjoy your day everyone

Good morning everyone

 

Cloudy here, some rain earlier and a band of heavier rain forecast to pass over sometime this mornng, 93% humidity, so rather humid.

 

Ros, I'm glad your Vera Lynn songs themed coffee morning went well

 

I hope everyone has a good day

Back home from church without getting soaked by the rain.

 

I normally do my Co-op shopping on a Tuesday but did some yesterday. Locally Tuesday's forecast is bad and a yellow warning for rain has already been made by the Met Office. Could get a good inch of rain (some places could get closer to 3 inches). This coming week is forecast to be really unsettled. Will impact on the final round of 4 day cricket matches which start tomorrow.

 

The top 3 teams in Division 2 get promoted to Division 1. Lancashire already promoted.
Northamptonshire are in 2nd place on 181 points, Gloucestershire in 3rd place on 176 points and Glamorgan in 4th place on 160 points. 2 of those 3 will get promoted.
Points are 0 to 5 batting points, 0 to 3 bowling points, 16 for a win, 8 for a tie, 5 for a draw or no result.

 

Intriguingly Gloucestershire are at home to Worcestershire and Durham (in 5th place) at home to Glamorgan. Glamorgan have to win to have any chance of promotion (or a tie, maximum batting & bowling points and Gloucester get no points which is unlikely).

That strange ad from Apple during Bake Off last evening with various sweets all over the place - I think it may be something to do with the code names they've used in previous versions but have dropped it for the new version. Could be wrong though.

I was wrong about that ad being something to do with code names.
Here's the advert on Youtube:

You may want to use the Settings icon under that clip and select a lower playback speed so that you can make out what the things being thrown around are. 
I think there may be a baby toy giraffe in it

What I had been thinking of was the various Android version code names:

Good evening erm- where did that weekend go?! I’ve caught up with friends, had an outdoor adventure and finally just caught up on strictly! I loved it 

 

I hope you’re all well and had a gorgeous weekend sweetest of dreams to you all  

 

p.s. Ros I’m glad Vera lynn went down a treat that’s my kinda music! 

Evening all 

Summer, I’m glad you had a good weekend 

Vekvet, sorry to hear about the driving licence.

Ros, it sounds like the Vera Lynn songs were a big success 

El, it restores my faith in human nature when I read stories like the stag one 

Squiggle, I hope the rain stayed off for you

Rain has stopped for the time being here though more is forecast later.

 

Humidity here is 94% which is very high for the time of day.

 

Little surprise that the cricket at Bristol, where Gloucestershire have their match, was severely curtailed by the weather yesterday and no play so far today.

In today's post was a birthday card. Although my address, it wasn't my name. As I didn't know if it was a joke (the name was unusual) I carefully opened it to find it was a birthday card to someone's nephew. No-one I knew, no-one with that surname in my road according to the 192 site. So I sealed the envelope, wrote "not known at this address" and put it back in the post box (along with the £10 note which was with the card). No postcode on the envelope so it will be difficult to track down who should have received it.

Good morning everyone

 

Rained overnight here, sunny at present, might get some rain during the daytime but not much.

 

Yogi, I recorded "Five Little Pigs" last night. I always allow extra time before and after the scheduled time - just as well as it started a couple of minutes early. Watched the opening scene just before switching over to Masterchef. That  opening scene in itself shows this is a standout episode of Poirot.

 

Taking my car in this morning for MOT and service. Getting the fuel cap lock system replaced as it's 17 years old and getting trickier to unlock.

 

I hope everyone has a good day

Looks as if Glamorgan have given up hope of beating Durham a short time ago as the BBC site are showing the match as drawn. The weather has hit most of the 4 day matches being played this week. ~Durham playing at home were still to complete their first innings and Glamorgan yet to bat. Glamorgan would have had to win to get promotion which would require Durham to declare now, Glamorgan forfeit their first innings, Durham to forfeit their second innings and for Glamorgan to score over 262 runs in their second innings - there is no reason for Durham to do that.

 

Means that Gloucestershire and Northamptonshire get promoted to Division One - that match has been also badly hit by the rain. Whether they play today isn't yet known - the first innings is yet to be finished so a draw is the most probable result anyway. They might play (depending on the weather) so that they and the fans can celebrate promotion together.
