Some kid in a pac with blue flashing lights kindly flagged us down to inform me that we were too close to the submarines in the eastern solent, and that the carriers and subs had a 400m zone around them..

The kids liked it.. The drive down to Gosport was interesting.. Came outta Stubb by the Shell garage, and the cars were queued back past that to the mini-roundabouts.. All heading for the seafront.. Tomorrow is gonna be hectic..

Not even getting in a car tomorrow.

We'll sit out there 'till we see evrything and then 'twill be time for refreshments.

Do you think the French will win this time since they do happen to have the biggest bote out there?

Only if they do what the French normally do, and cheat.. I think it was prolly only invited so it could be on hand to rescue the yanks again..

Please stop. All these comments might offend them. IN future you must ensure you are politically neutral, and rather than pairing countries against one another, will you please only use the teams "red" and "blue", as a team is a far nicer concept than a country anyway, and red and blue are relatively non offensive so nobody should get upset if they loose. Shocking really.



(P.s., where's that french warship, and has anyone got a canon I can borrow?)
