It's a cloudy day here at Granville Downs Post Office. A smattering of rain has fallen but the dry track has soaked it up greedily. The two contenders, one in brown paper colours and the other in aerodynamic bubble pack livery have just left the post heading for the first turn to the airport tracking towards the same destination. Who will win? Brown paper is carrying the heavier load but that might sustain it better over the long haul and it did pay a stiffer entry fee. It's one of the longer racetracks folks - 12,484 kms, 7,757 miles or 6,741 nautical miles. The crowd holds it's breath as they disappear into the distance.

P1 PPR,
I don't understand the significance of this number plate ... someone's initials?

Puzzled of Perth.

A surname or occupation perhaps? Piper?

Dawn is just about breaking and there's a touch of the old shepherd's warning about. Forecast to be overcast until this afternoon.

Good morning all. Long day yesterday and still doing emails at midnight. Went to bed took a bit to doze off...solid until 5am, nature then back to bed and got another 1 1/2hrs. Impressive.

Dull and overcast here.

Wreck fishing is good, went off Whitby in a converted ex Navy training boat. He was the only guy to have a license longer than 36 hrs, in fact he had a 4 day one. Boat called the Chieftain. Loads of good cod to take home.

The distance the Chieftain goes out into the North Sea is hardly inshore fishing.

I think fishing boats can make a lot more money on Mediterranean charters now.

Greetings gentlefolk,

29 for 35, hazy blue.

I have a chap painting the outside of the house at the moment - his choice - we said when ever you want this year so he chooses August and 30 degrees. Is Kosavo the East European equivalent of Ireland ?

It is reassuring to have two fairly large dogs guarding the property, he arrived just after 0800, got his equipment from the garage, put up his ladders etc. They clocked there was a break in at just before 0900 and bedlam followed, but he had been breaking in for an hour.

Terraces to clean soon, and physio later to be followed by Curry Night.

It seems to say Assosiated Dumlep on the front,wht's that all about.

It also has a Hunk sticking out the front which is what a starting handle was known as round these parts in the olden days when I were a wee lad and all vehicle had starting handles

Looking at the Radar thingy there appears to be a pair of C130s mating over Spalding.
Disgusting.

I must be a bit behind the door......I read the numberplate as P1 (pilot in command) PPR (Prior Permission Required)
There again, a lot of these imaginary meanings defeat me. more money than sense, some folk.

Captain, it is an "Associated Daimler" double decker. The roof seems to have been accidently modified, probably by a low bridge.
Here is another example - a 6X4, 9 Ton Heavy Breakdown Vehicle converted from an L.G.O.C. (London General Omnibus company) LS class double decker. And very smart looking it is, probably got 2 gallons to the mile.

My eyes aren't what they used to be.

So, like many people, you hear better when you put your specs on, do you GC?

No connection, but I've just started upgrading my tablet to Windows 10 - looks like this could take some time. If I like it I'll do the same to my desktop, I've got less to lose on the tablet if the installation goes TU on it.

I am told Win10 takes all your photos and runs them as your screensaver as a default. So, be prepared to modify.
