Thom Evans

It is sad to read that Thom Evans has been forced to retire as a rugby player.

Thom was ever present as a winger for both Glasgow and Scotland.

However in the Six Nations game against Wales on 13 February 2010 Evans suffered a severe neck injury after colliding with Welsh player Lee Byrne. He was stretchered off the pitch and taken to hospital to receive treatment. He underwent a neck operation that evening. After four months of rehabilitation, Evans was forced to retire, after accepting medical advice.

Very sad news indeed.

Now The Lovely Trixie I feel will be in deep mourning over this news and may herself be forced into a period of rugby abstinance whilst she recovers.

The Gulf Oil Spill

In june just passed I wrote a message to Obama about the Gulf Oil spill.

See Here

I was a little scathing.

I knew his mouthing off was to bolster flagging support for a failing President half way through his fist term and maybe not going to get a second.

But I might be wrong.
Mrs MBUN1 may have a comment on that.

Anyway a small boat has done some maths and I quote him.
Who can argue with a boat.............he is closer to the water that I will ever be.

I quote.....

The volume of the Gulf of Mexico is 2,424,000 cubic kilometers, or 6.43 * 1017 US gallons. The volume of oil spilt is estimated at 20m gallons to 50m US gallons; let's take the max, 5 * 107 gallons. That's one part of oil to 1.29 * 1010 parts of water.

The volume of the Thames at mid tide between Teddington and Gravesend is about 2.4 * 107 cubic metres (633 * 107 US gallons, or 127 times the total volume of the BP oil leaked). To replicate the 'environmental disaster' the Septics are claiming, I'll therefore have to empty 1.87 litres of engine oil into the river.
Now it appears that 75% of the oil has evaporated and a further 24% has been eaten by bacteria. The Armageddon merchants have crawled back in their (unpolluted) shells and the talk has switched to 'undetectable long term damage'

Whatever. The fact remains that 1 part of oil to 100,000,000,000 parts of water is nothing to get excited about.

Now I am not decrying the loss of income, marine life etc.............I just wanted to get a perspective so when a politician come on TV shooting off at the mouth about why his daughter cries at the action or lack of action of a BRITISH Company.....who has 42% of its shares owned by Americans by the way.............we might just be a bit more factual.

H/T to the Boat

Well Hello...............I am back

Sorry to have been absent for so long.

I away doing some stuff in a hot place ensuring that our troops got the support they needed.

Anyway back now.

However I just wanted to share this wee photo with you.

Kind of made me stop and wonder for a min or 2.

It is one of 40 Commando's medics, a L/Cpl Hanlon just standing to reflect on another day at Forward Operating Base Zeebrugge, high above Kajaki and Helmand’s Green Zone.

Made me stop and wonder.
