Ate this week at The Windmill in W1. Famous for it's pies.....jesus it was good, fill your boots.
So thread on recs to eat....
The Windmill W1 . Pies of many varieties
The Britannia Richmond - the whole menu. A gastropub that actually delivers. Non-poncey
Pizza: Pizza Pilgirms, Dean Street W1
Meat splurge:Rules in WC2. High end, but that chateaubriand for two is peerless
Mexican: Corazon on Poland Street. Incredible value, food and margaritas. Cool place.
Old school French: Mon Plaisir, WC2
American pre-theatre: Joe Allen still rocks in it's new location.
Falafel: Naama on Uxbridge Rd, W12. As good a falafel wrap as i've had (and i've had many.
Over to you....

Now that was a performance. Ireland were rusty to be sure (to be sure), but in the second half apart from their try, never got England's half.
There's half a chance of doing well in Japan you know. Semis? almost certainly. Finals? maybe. Winners? punchers chance on the day.
|Biggest con you've done|
at 21:32 7 Jul 2019
I about 13 just started a new school (a boarding one - don't judge me Bazza!).
We had outdoor PE on a freezing morning and i decided to bunk it so went to the school sick=bay and faked a stomach ache. The nurse prodded around my stomach area and i groaned and oohed at random points. She called for a doctor.
The doctor came to examine me. He prodded around my stomach area and i groaned and oohed at random points.
Then my mum was called to pick me up and drive me to hospital to have my appendix out. On the way there, tears welling in my eyes at the enormity of the situation i'd got myself into but i still didn't confess.
And so i had the operation and my appendix removed. Was off school for about 3 weeks. Single-most stupid thing i've ever done.

|Spotify and hifi help|
at 19:57 27 May 2019
So one of you wonderful people must be able to help me here.
My old skool hifi is in the living room with wired speakers in there and also in the kitchen. I need help with the kitchen.
So i can obviously plug my device into the amp and play spotify through that and feed it into the kitchen but is there something that can plug into the amp that i can control/change the music from the kitchen so i don't have to keep going into the living room.
First world problems and all that, but if there's a solution i'd be grateful to hear it.

What a fckng con. I don't play as it a rule but i did five lines for a tenner last night. I won £140. Don't get me wrong, that's a good return but when i checked i got 5 out 6 numbers correct on the winning line....wtf...stick another couple of 00 on it and that seems about right. Impossible.

After the most inept first half i have seen for a long long time, that second half was breathless entertainment. Ok we lost, but that's what sport is all about - great stuff.
Jordan Cousins - flipping heck - he was a man possessed, more performances like that please. Leistner a rock when he came on. Smith - running on gas fumes, all heart.
Bring on Friday.

Ok, so i said i wouldn't jeopardize my 100% win rate, but here's goes...........

In the end pretty comfortable. We looked pretty controlled throughout and Pompey looked utterly knackered by the end of it. Lovely to see Mass back and working his socks off. Matt Smith - take a bow...he's limited but he's got a lot of heart and that counts for much. Bidwell, Scowen also good as were Hall and Lynch (Lynch especially in 2nd half).
On we go.
|Even our pitch intruder fckd it up today.|

Don't know what he was on but legging it onto the pitch for a bet/fame/whatever only for the oppo to score during it...is pure epic fail. Thought it was Jordan for a split second .

On one side we have a spineless and rudderless government full of self-serving narcissistic cnts utterly divided.
On the other side we have spineless and rudderless opposition full of self-serving narcissistic cnts utterly divided.
Can someone please show us a third way beyond flipping Vince. Failing a Chuka et al third way then Disco, you're the man no to save us from jezwecan, Diane, Sneery Emily and McDonnell no?
