Oh dear, oh dear. I am really sucking the mop at the moment. Hacking cough, totally deaf in one ear, now the other ear is starting to go, and awfull ear ache, horrible brown stuff oozing out of right ear. Oh shut up, stop moaning and get on with it. It will pass. Hopefully
Pulis goes. Announced this morning. Most Baggies fans cheering. I thought it was ominous when the Chinese top bloke flew in the other day. And Pulis shot off home straight after the match.
His pride will be hurt but in reality it is a profitable time for a sacked manager. He almost always gets a good pay off, he has a few weeks with his feet up , then along comes an offer from another club and a new financial package and off he goes again.
There ain’t many top managers on the bread line.
Blues got a tough period of games coming up so I hope this win lifts their confidence. I say again, how can a club be in this position when the previous manager( our Harry ) signs 14 players who are supposed to better players and they end up at the foot of the table. It flipping well beats me.
I wish the missus a speedy recovery. You always feel low when one of these bugs hits you.
Someone asked on the radio the other day if anyone could pick up the SAME virus for a second time. The answer was no. Your immune system would be built up to stop it getting into your system. But any variant or mutation virus could knock you over.
You are right the Aussies have one of two surprises in their squad selection. It suggests a lack of depth in quality. But usually the Aussies have acouple if top bowlers and batters and they seem to knock us over. Paceman Johnson can be iffy with his bowling but when and if he gets it right he is devastating. 90 miles an hour plus, just short of a length and swinging, he can be lethal when he gets it right. I just hope he picks up the bug I have got.
Timothy is also a type of grass. Two main types , I forget their proper title, I will look it up. One is commonly called ‘Tall Timothy’ and is good for sheep and cattle fodder.
You might be surprised to know SOA, that there are about 60 types of grass common in the UK. And I met a bloke once who was a specialist in grass cultivation and his main job at Leeds University was to study and improve types of grasses for animal fodder. Sounds a bit boring to me, watching grass grow !!!!!
Reg.
Latin name for Timothy grass is Phleum. Now would you rather be called Timothy or Phleum.
Still it’s nice to have a grass named after you.

So much for the flu jab....looks like you have picked up a right old dose of it.....ear ache unpleasant ....seems like your brain my be leaking out also :) ...shall I write this in capitols so you can hear it better?....hope you is feeling better soon Reg.
Wife ok thanks Reg....got up this morning feeling a little better and less achy....she managed a lap around the park ...fresh air did her some good I think....not got it as bad as you for sure.
Yep it was a certainty Pulis would be sacked....Baggies showing against Chelsea dismal according to the reports and the fans....some fans are suggesting he was out to get the sack and was doing so because of the Wales job being vacant....not nice things to say.
Anyway the Wales job favours Giggs but I did read that Pulis was on the list......they want a Welsh man for the job....Pulis born in Newput way back when it was in Monmouthshire....perhaps not Welsh enough.....surprised they haven't insisted it must be a Welsh speaker also.
I never liked Pulis's tactics but he did keep the Baggies up....I would as a supporter like to see attacking football win,lose or draw.....and I think that may be the feeling of those who follow them also.....at the end of the day its entertainment we are after not a crooked neck.
Wonder who will get the job now? and more important....will they stay up?.....going to be hard to do so now I think.
Well I guess that would be correct...your immune system would indeed be ready....but we all know these viruses alter but thing is how fast can the do so?......clever little dudes these viruses.....never going to get the best of them for sure.
Timothy...two types of grass called Timothy.....surprised it wasn't two types of cabbage :) ....like the sound of Tall Timothy sounds like me as I am tall and I is quite partial to a bit of sheep and such.
Yes Timothy better than Phleum....but would have been much happier if I was a George or a Malcolm or even Horatio...joking about the last one....but I guess that's just a case of the other mans grass is always Greener.......GROAN....sorry Reg.
Not at all surprised at the amount of types of grass....anything to do with nature....so many different variations not only grasses.... all amazing.....I don't think I would like to watch grass grow....rather sit on a bank of sand and watch the river flow :)
Thinking about grass...it grows over night...cut it one day and the next time you look it needs cutting again....it seems like its over night anyway.
Not long now to the first test....soon see if the Aussies are up for it or just bluffing.....lets hope our lot can rise to the occasion....see now they are having a go a Cook...Aussies reckon hes not up to it.......he better be ...... someone has to put in some good scores ..fast bowlers or not...they have to put in the effort.....keep the faith Reg....never know we could be lucky.

Sorry for not posting lately SOA. Still in a lot of bother with this virus. Now almost totally deaf in both ears with shooting pains. Hurts to swallow and a dry hacking cough. Funny tiny bit of discharge from ears.
Will be back.

No worries mate(said with a Aussie accent)......I thought you have either run off with a 60 year old beer swilling nymphomaniac,or won the lottery and was down under watching the cricket.....or maybe a heavy dose of flu or the likes........but deep down I knew it was the latter........no one ever wins the lottery....and a beer swilling nymphomaniac only exists in my imagination(just as well really) :(
Take it easy Reg look after yourself....might be a good idea to get a doctor involved with those ears....ear infections can be right miserable even after the clear up it sometimes leaves your ears blocked and the background hiss enough to drive you bonkers.
Cricket...doing better than I thought...Cook and Rooty disappointing though.....time for Moeen and Bairstow to put some thick icing on it all and prove that last summer was not a flash in the pan.....and shut them load mouths up please boys.
Hope you is feeling better when you read this.....Hugs but no kisses.....Tiim the grass.

Well it appears as if I might have pierced both my ear drums due to pressure from an infection. Ears fully
blocked up. Boy was that pain awful. At least the pain has gone but I cannot hear a thing.
So now I have to put olive oil in my ears 3 times a day for 3 weeks and then have em syringed to get the gunge out.
Then I hope all will be well. And I can then hear myself think again. So to speak.
I hope you and the missus are doing ok.
Terrible performance from our cricketers, totally outplayed. At one stage Rooty looked terrified waiting to bat against their pace bowlers . I think they have sledged our lot so much that we are petrified . But it is quite silly , their pace bowlers are hardly faster than ours. It is all in the mind.

Had me worried Reg....glad you is feeling a little better and the pain has stopped....ear infection not the best but in both ears right miserable...ear drums should heal?....but look after them whilst in they are in process of recovery....I use olive oil from time to time to keep my lug holes open and stop the hissing.
We are all ok thanks Reg...wife shook it off and was not that bad....my chest hairs no longer stuck together with snot in the mornings now.
Cricket disappointing.....full of hope after the first day but the failure to put runs on the board was the writing on the wall for us lot....just knew it was all over for us after the Aussies first knock.....I fear the worst Reg.....but lets see what the second test brings before we let our hearts sink to our boots....Keep the faith :( ....get Bairstow to headbutt Smith might help us too.....(joke).......that's Stokes job.
Just heard on the radio...Peardrop has been appointed boss at the Baggies.....what a terrible move Reg.....(glad he didn't get the Exiles job)....still...it will give the Baggies fans a little more to moan about....be begging to have us Newput boy Pulis back before long.....or should that be Bournemouth boy Pulis....why he ever left Pillgwenlly for there I do not know....he must miss the old transporter bridge something rotten....but still Newput and Bournemouth have a lot in common....both close to water. :)
Anyway.....its getting colder here on the hill and they reckon its going to get worse....so if it be the same in your neck of the woods....make sure you look out for yourself and if you do venture out wrap up warm and pull your hat over those poor ears of yours
And finally....my daylily out in the front garden is still putting up buds.....how strange is that.

Still here SOA. But not feeling brilliant. Hope you and the wife are ok. I am still getting a little pain though nothing like it was at the onset. But now almost totally deaf in both ears. Can’t hear the doorbell, telephone or tv unless i turn it right up till I can just hear it but then the neighbours would be up in arms. It appears that both ears are totally blocked up with what the Doc said was Puss, but I suppose that would be what we know as wax. So that has got to come out. I have been putting Olive oil in my ears 3 times a day now for a while. They were going to have a go at getting it out on 12 th Dec. But that was cancelled and now it’s on 14th. It’s all go and Xmas is coming on fast.
I have just been informed that the forum is closing very soon. So I wish you and the wife all the best and enjoy Christmas and good health in the future. Hopefully by the NewYear I will be ok.
All the best to you both.
Reg.

Happy your still here Reg :) wife and myself all ok thanks and we is glad to you are feeling a little better now also....after they give your old lugholes a wash and blow dry your ability to hear the hustle and bustle of modern life will improve no end.......bet you will hear more after that than you used to.....and I also hope your back on top form before Christmas..... fingers crossed that will be so.
Yes sad its all over with the forum but I did expect its closure was on the cards....shame but that life.....I suspect I shall go back to hanging about on street corners and getting up to no good again now...or sitting in Wetherspoons and making a pint last 4 hours....maybe steal my dads cue and make a living out of playing pool.....or join a rock roll band that needs a helping hand....perhaps I better find a Maggie May first though....one thing for certain I shall not be going back to school.
But back on planet earth...
So it just remains for me to wish you both a happy Christmas and and a happy New Year and all the best for the future.....keep the faith Reg....every time I see the football results I shall think of you .......just before I laugh about the Blues inability to win a match......never seen the Blues play...but that may change if they don't buck up.....they will be playing us Exiles before long and I shall make a point of doing so. :)
Tararabit or Hwyl Fawr...or just goodbye for now.
Tim the grass.
