    Let me know if you'd like to combine for free postage Cranky, I've got $62 worth sitting in the basket with $15 postage required. More than $99 is free postage.

    That's good news .....Grimsey 10k at Redcliffe in 2 weeks 👍

    I always wondered what those foam pads on TT handlebars were for 🤔 😜

    What training did you do today...

    Swam 4.5k in some pretty rough open water at Redcliffe this morning, probably the roughest conditions I've ever swum more than a few k in. Included in that was 2.5k of race pace pack swimming drills with the Grimsey Squad which is always a lot of fun and great race simulation. Followed that up with an easy 25k spin on the roadie just to make sure I'd earned the "big Breakfast".

    What training did you do today...

    Swam a slow boring straight 5k after work today. I'm thinking about entering a 10k swim in just 2 weeks so I thought I'd better start uping the mileage. Since the Maggie Island to Townsville Swim in July I've hardly gone past 2.5k and only averaged 1 swim a week so there's a good chance this will get ugly

    I've been pushing off my turns with one leg since the Gold Coast half in July.

    Live aid acts. 1.9 billion watched

    Queen came to Aus in 74 to play the Sunbury Music Festival and we’re booed off the stage... but so we’re Skyhooks. In the early 80’s I saw INXS at the Homestead Hotel in Brissie for $8. In the mid to late 70’s (?) I got dragged along to see a band at North’s footy club, think I was 16. I almost said no when they were charging $10 at the door but paid and went in anyway. The band was AC/DC 😎

    How long until footy season?

    Quite often I'd get stung by bluebottles at surf carnivals and open water swimming events. I got 10 bluebottle stings during the WSS 5km open water race at Noosa last year. One was particularly annoying as it was latched on to my 3 day growth and for 50mts the body would end up in my mouth whenever I took a breath. Probably my most unusual was a bee sting on my back during a swim at Enoggera Dam

    Here's their post Kona show, it's like an advert for the 4 Seasons Ko Olina, esp the 1st 5 mins. I'd be surprised if the hotel wasn't comped https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NEYQZADLlgA

    Speaking of old bands, I'm seeing the Happy Mondays in Feb.... if they turn up that is. Not sure they'd make it past the party favours in the green room at a Live Aid gig.

    The Politics Thread

    I think that handshake with Howard at the radio station was the defining point in Latham’s career
