Had an interesting weekend. Got in an auto accident on the way to see my first client of the morning. Starting to think that maybe I should make Fridays my office day instead of Tuesdays. Second time since late May I've been in a Friday Accident. clown

Haven't heard yet if car is total or they are going to fix it. Bumps and bruises, nothing broken though I am missing a few seconds of memory after the accident. I remember hearing the crash but not feeling it, then next thing I know I'm down the road with the air bag deflated [didn't remember it deploying] and trying to stop the car. Brakes went with the accident.

I hit the other car with my right front side, going through an intersection where I had the green light, the guy pulls out of a parking lot into my path. So fast! Didn't even have time to take foot of the gas or swerve. It was like CAR! BAM!

Hope you guys are doing better than me. What a Face

Strewth, glad you're ok, save for the bumps n bruises! I was reminded yesterday about my hobby (Motorcycling) being hazardous when a guy who rides out with our group (bunch of us on Facebook go for rides to the coast etc, but I haven't been out for a while with them) passed away. He'd been involved in a crash a couple of weeks ago when riding on his own and the group had found out about it. He was in hospital, supposedly 'on the mend' after touch n go week or so and yesterday he passed. The money contribution I was going to make to help him get back on his feet (he was self employed so whilst in hospital no way to pay bills) will now sadly go towards funeral costs. I didn't know the guy but can tell from the outpouring of grief on the FB group how well liked he was. Think he was in his late 40s.

Be careful out there guys, and enjoy life as best you can, because you never know what's around the corner. RIP.

Hopefully updating later, but have lots of homework to do so may be in the morning. Cheers, Paul

Aiming for update tonight. Latest disaster is that I went out for a few drinks with the Girlfriend after work and she got drunk and fell over. I Spent all night in Casualty with her and she's having her leg stitched today whilst her face looks like she's been 12 rounds with Mike Tyson. My life is officially crazy! Hope you guys are faring better.

Well, it's explaining my absences. When I'm around at the GF's place I have no access to a laptop to update. Indeed, I seem to be spending most of the time running around and fetching things... hmmmm. Anyway, I have a brief window this morning before I go to work so let's see how far I can get with updates! based on the run of luck this year, I'm thinking we are due a lottery win of a substantial amount at some point, to even things out...

Well, the insurance company totaled my car since I had repairs of over 3/4s of its worth, which by state law they must then declare totaled. I bought a 2017 Kia Soul back on the 4th from the money the insurance company paid me.

BTW, if you are tall like me and are looking for a new car, you want to check out the Soul. It is surprisingly roomy with good headroom, cargo space and inexpensive and beat out Porsche as best rated car of 2017 as by 90 day owner satisfaction rating. First time in decades a non0luxery car got the number one spot. Land Rover came in like 35th. Razz

I bought the Plus model, more power and other goodies. So far I am really enjoying it.

So, anyone seen Thor yet? I will probably wait until it comes out on Netflix since I now have a nice big TV to watch it on.

Ok, in case anyone thinks I've wandered off, I haven't but this year has been a dozy for me. I've just moved for the third time and am in between properties as I write this. I will be in my final new home by the end of November. On top of this, I'm in one of the busier times for me in the year and things are what one might call settled, at least not at present. So, Paul, I know you've been a bit the same, however, I wanted to specifically come on and say it's not you or me, its just been what it's been. I will be slower in replying than normal but I have to prioritize at present and that is why I've not yet replied not because I don't wish to or am going anywhere.

Dave - completely understand mate. No rush, no worries. The game has slowed down for the most part thanks to my bonkers schedule (even as I type this I should instead be making further notes on the route for the train from York to Manchester. It's something I've been putting off as I learn other routes but have just done Scarborough, newcastle before that and my head is spinning. Like being back in school with homework every night Sad ) Once things settle down (next year should be finished training) things will become more settled and back to normal, I promise!

David - saw Thor, quite enjoyed it. Didn't take itself seriously, they did some crazy stuff to Thor which will need fixing in the next film I expect and i reckon there'll be a mass clearout of actors in the next few films after Black Panther. We know Robert Downey is nearly done, and Chris Evans and Hemsworth will want to do other stuff (Evans wants directing I think). Besides which the wage bill must be enormous by now so bringing in new/fresh actors on lower salaries will appeal to the Disney Execs.

Have spent too long (again) doing work stuff and need to hit the sack, but there will be (at least) one update this week David. Dave, whenever you can mate, no rush. It's usually you waiting for me and things have been absolutely bonkers this year. Let's see... change jobs, move house, girlfriend changes jobs 3 times, breaks her thumb, I run over her cat (he's fine by the way, the thing is nigh on indestructible it seems) and she ruptures her tendon in her leg needing surgery and a leg splint for months. During all of which I'm required to be around and supportive (translation - be a taxi driver).

You ever have one of those years?

(rhetorical question - I know you both have had just as crazy years as I've had...)

Thanks for hanging in here! Cheers, Paul
