Hey everybody. And for once, the following post isn't going to be an original daily post, I'm tired and basically out of ideas. Lovely.

So, what is in the news? Well, in F1 terms, it looks like Christian Klien still wants to be a part of the Hispania set up for this season. Of course Klien drove three races for them last season, not setting the world alight but far better than anyone else at the team who raced that season. And frankly thats it, which is hardly surprising for a Sunday. Times like this I hate doing dailies on a Monday.

So, lets drift into other motorsports, ooh WRC, lets talk about that. Sebastian 'Oggi' Ogier was leading (that means happy RG), but he crashed out, handing the win to a certain Mr. Loeb (which makes a sad RG). I would pretend to know about this, but I don't.

NASCAR, people drove around a bit, few people crashed, someone won, lots of adverts and yellow flags. I think.

Football, I know about this. And in a game featuring two of the greatest and successful teams in England, Wolves scored in the last five minutes to earn a 3-3 draw against Tottenham in one of the games of the season. Do watch the highlights, all three of Spurs' goals are worthy of a place on Match of the Day's Goal of the Month competition (but not a competition any more). Oh and some Liverpool side beat Man Utd 3-1. The best place for footballers in England is County Durham (in your face you southerners, unless your not from dan saaf, in that case, I'm not laughing at you at all, sorry for wasting your time). But how about this in Argentina, where a referee sent off 36 people, yes, 36.

Cricket, I'm trying to be interested in this because it is a World Cup (and I suggested it in my 5 'Sports to watch in 2011'). England continued their belief in 'make every game exciting', by securing a stunning victory over South Africa. England batted first and scored 171 (which is low), but managed to get South Africa all out for 165 (which is lower) to win. There was even some excitement on my part on it, which I haven't experienced in the sport since I scored my first ever runs (and my only ones) several years ago.

Lets see who has been doing what then, well apart from my 'Just How Biased is the BBC?' series I've proposed, Lukeh has been at his Photoshop again and of course Mr Giggles has returned! Hooray. His Audio Biography starts at the year 1980, which was of course the year that saw Tottenham finish 14th in the old First Division.

Finally, a little short tribute to a fine footballer and person, Mr. Dean Richards, who tragically died at the young age of 36. He played for Bradford City, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Southampton and Tottenham. The tribute at the game between Wolves and Spurs was immaculate, with special shirts produced which will be auctioned to raise money for charity.

    Quite some achievement considering two sides normally field a total of 22 people at a time...

    Referee Damian Rubino's post-match report stated that he sent off all players, substitutes, coaches and technical staff at the game after fans joined the fighting on the pitch.

    Well, yes... ...usually the technical staff manage not to do anything to get themselves sent off, even if everyone else grabs the idiot ball...

    Yes, it's the Mail, but it's an interesting article (assuming it wasn't taken out of context):

    Jenson Button: I'll quit Formula One if I become a father... it's not worth the risk

    It's a bit similar to what DC did, but I'm a bit surprised here. Many other drivers have no issue having kids while continuing to pursue their career. Still, it's a decision I totally respect.

    Buemi and Alguersuari say Ricciardo isn't a threat.

    Does anyone get the feeling that the only reason both drivers are still there is because they're so equal, STR doesn't know who to fire? They could keep this up forever as long as they make sure they stay even on points.

  • Journeyer07/03/2011 at 05:04

    They keep doing that, they'll both get fired in exchange for Ricciardo and Jean-Eric Vergne. And we all know STR won't hesitate to fire their drivers...

    ... I can't wait to see how good their 2011 car really is ... if the car is at the lower end of the midfield as it was in last 2 seasons the team would probably gain more than they would lose by making one driver change after few races.

    if however the new car starts collecting points on regular bases with both drivers contributing they may not want to risk a change and may stick with the same line up for the rest of the year. that is what I would do (without knowing any background and contractual stories)

    Jeez, can you imagine what would have happened if Mark Clattenburg had ref'd that game?

    Buemi and Alguersuari say Ricciardo isn't a threat.

    'Tato Head will be gone by Hungary I reckon.

    It's a bit similar to what DC did, but I'm a bit surprised here. Many other drivers have no issue having kids while continuing to pursue their career. Still, it's a decision I totally respect.

    By the way, they couldn't call the car 'Italia' as the 458 shares the name, so they would have been stuck there too...

    I love that you had Milo to perk you up afterwards!

    They don't sell it here but I brought some home from T&T - I gave it to a Venezuelan and a Canadian for the first time the other day (made with warm milk) and they quite enjoyed it!

  • Amy07/03/2011 at 09:54

    I love that you had Milo to perk you up afterwards!

    I wanted something cold but sweet, and that was the only thing in the house that fit the bill :)

    It's 'Malt Milo' and comes in a brown can instead of a green one. I only bought it to see how it differed from the usual chocolate malt milo and to be honest I can't taste the difference, although I guess I probably could if you gave me a mug of each at the same time.

    I can't go into it too much now (am in work), but I also believe it to be one of the many reasons why overtaking is so difficult now. The fitter drivers have much higher rates of concentration, that sees them produce less mistakes.

    (an this is not getting into the fact they are much better prepared now than ever before)

    Come into the corner way too fast, possibly even with throttle on, then jump off the gas or tap the brakes. Works with WRXs too - don't let anyone tell you that they're boring because you can't get the tail out :)

    Sounds good. Maybe the photographer left the mailing up to an intern who totally screwed it up and would be mortified to find out how you received the package. Gives him a chance to make it right first....and if that doesn't work, Twitter to the rescue.

    I had no idea it was that bad out there until I saw us on the news with pavement all torn up after water washed out the road underneath it. I was very surprised school was called off today, but if we can't get the kids and vehicles are floating, then I guess they had to.

    It hasn't been my week for space stuff. First I missed the launch of the USAF's top secret X-37B mission and today I missed the shuttle separating from the ISS and doing the flyaround.

    Hopefully tonight's skies will be clear enough to see the ISS and the shuttle at 7:22pm in the UK. I have only once before seen the ISS chase the shuttle across the sky.

    Something I have learnt over the last year of unemployment/temporary employment, is that you don't have one CV. It's good to have a base document so you don't forget any of your qualifications/employers but you need to be able to tweak it dependant upon the job you are applying for. As an example, the agency is putting me forward for a management information assignment so I cut back on the planning aspects of my last job and gave more detail on the reporting/excel side.

    Of course this may mean that you don't really want the job you are crafting the cv for..... or that you want it too much ....

    How about using the time limit technique... if you give yourself, say, 15 minutes (we know your typing speed is phenomenal) and just go for it.... when it's finished do the quick covering note (5 mins) and send.....

    NO SIGHTINGS AVAILABLE Fine! No reason to shout at me.

  • RubberGoat07/03/2011 at 19:42

    The second one was very slightly brighter but the first twinkled a bit more.

    It also seemed very fast and low for a plane too...

  • Steven Roy07/03/2011 at 19:42

    The question is now... I'm pretty sure that plane should have a white flashing light too.

    Planes should have red flashing lights not white ones

  • Steven Roy07/03/2011 at 19:43

    It says 6:50 but that wouldn't have been dark enough.

    You can see it before it is really dark if it is at the right angle to the sun

  • Lukeh07/03/2011 at 19:43

    Maybe it was the ISS safety car following the pack. Perhaps it has white lights instead of orange.

  • Steven Roy07/03/2011 at 19:43

    The second one was very slightly brighter but the first twinkled a bit more.

    I would guess the ISS twinkled more because it has all those solar panels and radiators at different angles

  • RG07/03/2011 at 19:44

    No, 2 red and one white, its for night time flying so planes can see on runway and all that, I think.

  • Steven Roy07/03/2011 at 19:45

    The ISS and the shuttle are way higher than planes.

    Red on left wingtip, green on the right.

    I believe the tail has a white strobe

  • RubberGoat07/03/2011 at 19:46

    I saw twinkling but not strobes - and the direction was abnormal too - they would have been flying over, not by my house if they were on approach to the arport..

    Yes, white light, thats what I meant, didn't mean fully flashing, I'm all over the place here.

  • Bassano07/03/2011 at 19:49

    Forward facing White lights are either landing lights or taxi/turn-off lights.

    No others when cruising, I believe

    It's so you can tell which direction it's travelling when viewed from a distance. Especially important if viewing from another aircraft travelling at 500mph

  • RubberGoat07/03/2011 at 19:55

    OK, a plane just went past, a lot dimmer, slower moving and you could easily see the strobes

    I think I saw the ISS because it was a lot brighter and didn't strobe like that...

    You need to get out now to see it

    I was in sign language class :(

  • Steven Roy07/03/2011 at 22:20

    (At least the class went well this time. Did signs for emotions and everyone was encouraged to do the most ridiculous facial expressions!)

    Sounds like fun. I guess sometimes the hands are not enough to convey the meaning

  • Alianora La Canta07/03/2011 at 22:21

    Problem with Laguna Seca is it's far too narrow. It would instantly be compared to Hungary

    Hungary seemed to work quite well with the LMS cars - or was that because my newbieness didn't let me see the flaws?

  • Alianora La Canta07/03/2011 at 22:24

    Sounds like fun. I guess sometimes the hands are not enough to convey the meaning

    The facial expressions allow communication of the amount one is feeling the emotion as well as the fact one is/was/will be having it. So a small smile means you are quite happy and an ear-to-ear grin means you were very happy.

    Also learned the signs relating to confidence:

    A "C" shape in front of your chest is confidence in general

    A "C" shape at stomach level means low confidence

    A "C" shape at neck level means high confidence

    A "C" shape above your head means arrogance

    And a "C" shape at your chin means... ...cousin!
