Sounds like the sort of mixed case we'd all love to stumble across.
To continue the theme, the paper can suffer, but if the glass and cork are intact, hope springs eternal.
Hope when you open them, you've found some gems.

Just had a play with it....Excellent. I would love a score option, but it's very good as it is. If I've praised it enough? A suggestion. The look of it needs jazzing up. That funny paisley design doesn't do it for me, and it might benefit from more stylish and distinctive font. But of course that is...

After Ben's obligatory Cricket reference :D , an update... Tiger Woods has overcome a recent knee operation, to storm into a one shot lead going into the final round. Two eagles in the last 6 holes, on a brute of a Course, is anything but shoddy. This man is History in the making. And yet, one shot ...

US Open. 2008

Sitting here, sipping Warres 95 LBV, which is very nice, and watching the US Open on the HighDef. It's quarter past one in the morning, and the leader has only just started the back 9! Dont the Americans know we have to get some sleep! Woods wil take some beating, but Rocco Mediate is 4 ahead with 2...

They are excellent going forward. They are getting the breaks at the moment, but someone has to! Why they aren't playing Robben from the start instead of that clown Kuyt is beyond me as well. The only thing is, I suspect it will come to a crashing end in the semi's. Hope I'm wrong. I'll get the hank...

Do you think we may have found are Rules are Rules Man, rather than the Spirit of the Law???

Of Course Ben completely agrees, we just need to address the Rule Makers???

Congrats on finishing the Studies, where will that hopefully take you in life?

As it is, we have all learned about a poor obscure rule that was not brought in for that purpose. And surprise, surprise, we are talking about a Ref. What purpose was rule in for? The purpose of the rule was to stop a defender stepping over the dead ball line to 'create' an artificial offside. So t...

OK, always willing to oblige. :D If the Ref had of blown for Offside, no-one on either side would have argued, a sense of fair play would have abounded.

He told a news conference: "There is a lack of understanding as to why this particular goal was awarded. In fact some television commentators ...

Alex, this article sums up the dispute. The World thinks it was clearly offside, whereas some geeky official tells the world it's wrong. The rule covers deliberate movement off the pitch to gain an advantage, not being clouted at speed by your team mate in the hope of saving a goal. We need that Aus...

Axel,

Germany, like France and Holland, have a chance, but they'll probably fall short in the quarters or semi's, good luck though! With England missing I dont mind who wins, whatsoever.

There was this tramp. One cold winter's morning he was walking along a country road, when he heard a cry for help from a nearby lake. Without a moment's hesitation he ran out onto the ice and slipped and slided over to a little girl. He managed to pull her out without breaking the ice further and ca...

Portugal and Spain.

No cheesy Port reasons. Just the best teams. If they get to play each other late on, it will open the tournament for others, which may include Holland.
