  1. 39, 690 - Hopefully if fans keep speaking out, things will start to change soon.
  2. 39, 688 - It's on free-to-air TV at the moment on Channel 4 - but from 2019, I believe it's going totally over to Sky Personally I hope that can be stopped because I hate the way that Sky (and BT) are buying up all the live sport and effectively trying to blackmail fans into paying for their services to watch our favourite sports. I've watched F1 all my life - literally since I was about 3 - and I cannot afford to pay £50 a month for TV services (nor would I *want* to pay anything to Murdoch and his lot). Equally, through the F1 Fan Surveys in the last couple of years, we have made
  3. Well done! I should get my final OU result some time roundabout Twickenham
  4. 39, 686 - It's not somewhere you'd immediately think of - but it's a country with a lot of oil money - which clearly plays a part. Whether it stays on the calendar long-term is another matter... although races like yesterday won't hurt.
  5. 39, 684 - Yay! We can get back to counting I spent yesterday watching Formula 1 - the Azerbaijan GP was one of the most eventful races I've seen! And it showed that even the best drivers in the world sometimes get road rage (Yes Mr Vettel, we're all looking at you)
  6. Today started badly with my friend telling me she cannot come to Twickenham with me to see U2. But now I have been able to arrange for another of my FB friends - who I know through the U2 Friends group - to have the ticket, so that makes me feel much better
  7. 39, 680 - Feeling more cheerful now that I have a possible taker for my spare London ticket It's a shame that my friend can't go now, but it looks like I will be able to help another U2 Friend to get there instead.
  8. 39, 679 - And a great weekend to you too Pain Mine will be full of Formula 1 cars
  9. 39, 673 - Early afternoon counting between F1 practice sessions. And I've literally just out found that my planned gig buddy cannot now come to London with me
  10. 39, 662 - Very late night counting. Adding another number at ten past midnight.
  11. 39, 656 - Counting while rocking out to my JT30 tour playlist. Still hoping that London might get
  12. 39, 647 - Counting in the early evening sunshine. It's cooled down a bit today - we even had a light drizzle of rain earlier! Still no thunderstorm though...
  13. 39, 638 - Early morning counting. It's cooled down a bit overnight, but I was still awake at about 3am
  14. 39, 633 - Just POP-ping in to add another number
  15. 39, 611 - New Year's Day and Two Hearts Beat As One. I do have a record player - although it's older than I am and I don't trust it! But my mum has a modern one which can convert vinyl to MP3/CDs etc and is much better.
  16. 39, 605 - I take it things didn't go well? Sorry to hear that
  17. 39, 603 - Adding another number before I attempt to get to sleep in silly temperatures.
  18. I found (and bought) the vinyl singles of Two Hearts Beat As One and New Year's Day while out browsing round some shops today Always amuses me that releases from this era are older than I am I shall look after them as well as I can.
  19. 39, 602 - Evening counting as it's starting to cool down. My eye appointment wasn't as bad as I thought - and then I found 2 U2 vinyl singles while we were out I found and
  20. 39, 589 - Our local football club recorded at least 29 degrees today - I struggle even when it's 25 degrees Hopefully we might get some thunderstorms in the next couple of days to cool things down.
  21. 39, 587 - Maybe when they get to Episode XVIII Melting in this hot weather - but I did make it to my Tai Chi and writing groups.
  22. 39, 584 - Morning counting. Sorting out stickers and cards to send out to trading partners. If all goes well, these trades will complete my Star Wars 40th anniversary card set
  23. 39, 575 - My salad was yummy. It probably helped that I was watching a U2 DVD while eating it
  24. 39, 570 - Counting while trying to stay cool. The display in the car said 27 degrees earlier... it will be salad for dinner as it's too hot for cooking.
  25. 39, 563 - Evening counting. I finished reading another library book today
