OK and here's a totally legit, and very insightful interview for any football fan....but especially for an Arsenal fan, or a fan of the French national team of 20 years ago.

I really liked Henry as a player right up to the game against Ireland in the WC Qualies........cheated the Irish they did......the "Hand of Frog"......lol

^^ Fair enough.

But here's one more interview - at the end, indicating the immense power of football to unite people.

He and his fellow players are still thanked every day for what they achieved in 1998. Great interview - with a bit of life philosophy thrown into his reminiscences about the WC.

Not so, based on the evidence in your previous 1000's of posts!

Haha - it was the post on the previous page that got me thinking about hair on football players...and one thing led to another.

I'd never watched any of those clips before today. But he's well worth listening to, regardless of his appearance. :P

PS I'm back to Monty Python now - well John Cleese actually.

I tried to go out and embrace the invigorating wind....sit in the Sun and get some Vitamin D etc....but that didn't last long. :xmad:

Yep.

Had great fun until the tourists started showing up. Then went indoors.

Just walked through the park which had tiny clumps of ice spread out several metres part. People were still turning in and taking photos and driving through the park (!) like ****wits. Earlier, the mrs had walked through when it was still covered and tourists had destroyed all the stuff we'd made about half an hour before. I hope they all slip off the highway on black ice :lol:

BTW, I did go out yesterday, rode out to Hanging Rock, but it was mental as anything with the wind there. I was so paranoid about falling off a cliff, mostly because of definitely being remembered as a ******* idiot. :lol:

@ wendybr - does your husband know about your infatinfatuation with Petit???

I heard he had to wear a full Arsenal strip, put the head of a mop on his head and put on a french accent in the bedroom every night...

Proper winters morning. Got up early and put a bit of heating on for when the wife and lad wake up. First time done that in a while!.

Then put the slow cooker on low, been on 3hrs already, another 7 to go. Wife and lad smelt the cooking when woke up.

Then put some porridge on (Ed would approve).

Summer mornings you get out and perhaps get to the coast. This is winter mornings at there best. Only thing missing a log burner...

You got any more snow this morning?

Yep heh.

It was snowing consistently from about 7-10 but not enough to really stick around.

Hasn't stopped a stream of people coming up though and then stopping on the side of the highway to fling bits of dirty ice at each other and take selfies etc.

The weather guy reckons there's maybe a bit more this afternoon but it will need to be massive to settle at this stage I would think.

Thinking about holiday ideas for the end of the year / Jan. Has anyone here driven the great ocean road?

We are thinking of flying to Melbourne, picking up a hire car and driving the great ocean road and ending up in Adelaide, good idea, any tips on where to stay? Give enough time so we don't have to rush, stay in Melbourne and Adelaide for a few days at the start and end....
