Poker   no comments

Posted at 9:14 am in blog,fun

As some may know, I’m an avid poker player. So, I’d just like to crow about my win last night!

Big tournament at the Grosvenor Casino in Luton, £50+£6 buy-in and around 60 runners. I wasn’t planning to go, but a friend was going and asked if I’d like to join him. With nothing better planned, I tagged along. We started at 4pm and things were pretty level for the first few hours. My friend crashed out early unfortunately. I didn’t get out of there ’til 2am but it was worth it for first place and winnings of just over £1K. Happy days!

Where’s the 419?   no comments

Posted at 12:41 pm in blog,fun

Why don’t I get 419 scam mails any more? Didn’t we all used to receive at least 1 a week? I know I certainly did. I even remember my first, when I actually read through it all, pondering the possibilities of helping someone retrieve $40 million.
I was only reminded of this when I actually received one today. Not from Nigeria, but from someone claiming to be in London. I particularly liked his sign off –
“Please if you are not willing and interested in helping me kindly delete this email from your email and pretend you never got it.”
I will do that Sir!

Rob at DGM wanted suggestions as to who their Affiliate Manager, George Bett looked like with his newly shaved head on this thread at A4U. We decided that it was very Dr. Evil so I produced this quick and dirty chopped image.

Any suggestion for semi slick mountain Bike Tyres?   no comments

Posted at 2:55 pm in fun

Can anyone suggest a decent pair of semi slick mountain bike tyres as I’ve just bought a 2nd hand mountain bike and am upgrading tyres and gear cassette etc.  Already got the cassette and a decent rear wheel and hub, so just need the tyres..

I usually ride a road bike, but never really given time to a mountain bike.  I’m swapping from a road bike to a mountain bike because the roads are so poor in the Hemel Hempstead area that it has become a nightmare to ride, full of potholes and ravines

Any suggestions welcome!

It was great fun to make and we welcome all suggestion on how we did it!
