What a weekend...

Britain's Lewis Hamilton on pole position for tomorrow's British Grand Prix at Silverstone, Federer and Nadal in tomorrow's mens Wimbledon final, the Tour de France starts in London (a coup for Ken), England v West Indies at Trent Bridge (less said)...

And of course the most significant event - Al Gore's Live Earth concerts around the world - (there's even one on Antartic weith a sell-out audience of the 17 scientists who work at the ice station where its at!)...

Have the Yorkshire floods anything to do twith global warming...? Not sure...but good to see our Prime Minister visiting the victims and finding 14 millions in cash aid to repair some of the damage...

All on the second anniversary of the 7/7 terrorist attacks on London and the same weekend when an NHS doctor - trained to save lives - is charged with attempting to cause devastation...

Life goes on...

Having a lovely time up here in the Grandstand on me lap top at sunny Silverstone.

Just been watching the F2.

And now its time to bring on Lewis.

Go on my boy!

Just back from Silverstone.

Traffic horrendous but tennis final still in play.

What is going on with the Fed.

I'd have put my house on him a week ago.

i'd have put mine on big roger too.

seems we would have both been safe enough, but wasn't it a close one!

Hope you enjoyed Silverstone.

Last time I went was 20-odd years ago when I was fortunate to have been given VIP family tickets.

Despite this, all we saw was a quick flash of the cars over just a few yards each lap.

Airfields like Silverstone are best for aircraft take-offs and landings!

I much prefer bikes round Donington, or even better round Cadwell...

I once saw Ago on the MV maintain a wheelie from the top of the Cadwell mountain into the left hander beyond - whilst looking behind him to see how far ahead of the field he was...!!!
