    And I'm not being flippant, but I also found the ones of Sam Fox quite 'interesting'!
    I got to play footsie with Sam that evening (perk of the job, somebody's got to do it).

    Funnily enough, I'm a German speaker and in 1994 I gave lectures to the German Staff College and their School of Infantry about our time in Bosnia. In both places, a German officer asked me how I had managed to get my soldiers to do the things I needed them to do, some of which were extremely unpleasant and a bit dangerous. I could only say that the thought had never crossed my mind that they wouldn't and because I was doing it as well. It had obviously crossed their minds, though.

    2001 is a real shock - I was sat here trying to count back the years and reckoned it was a long time before then. Blimey.

    That'll be my recurrent insomnia then (again!)

    It's ok, it's only work tomorrow (today). Half the patients (at the least) are too busy talking about themselves to notice that i'm not listening.

    No official results as yet, but somehow these chaps seem to have some fairly specific times...

    If Dom Raby was 23rd, that puts me 24th. Nice to get a mention in the telegraph. I struggle getting a mention in the Rossy free press.
    Well done John Sutton

    Well down on what I hoped for too. After coming top half of the field at my first 2 races ( Hope and Windgather ) my FTOP 195th is a bit of a wake up call.

    Time to step up the training I think.
