  1. It must be so difficult for the team to process that they won't see him again. I've noticed Max Verstappen has a tribute on his helmet this weekend too.
  2. 39, 157 - I received a birthday present today! A parcel was delivered and I was confused at first - I haven't ordered anything from Amazon lately. Then I realised it's my birthday next week. Presumably it's from my best friend as we have a tradition of sending each other gifts from each other's Wishlist.
  3. 39, 148 - They were originally published a couple of decades ago, then in the last few years, new editions have been brought out. Great for passing the time on road trips Weather update from my part of the world: I'm melting.
  4. 39, 142 - I have an I-Spy Car Badges book - and the Trabby is listed as one of the cars I must try and find. It's one of the higher-scoring ones too
  5. 39, 138 - Monaco is an oddity indeed. It's such a low-speed circuit that the Trabby could probably win!
  6. 39, 136 - Today will confuse me. Friday of an F1 Grand Prix weekend and we've already had practice... Why does Monaco have to be such an oddity?
  7. 39, 109 - Evening counting now that it's cooling down. Having to wear smart clothes to work in hot weather is not pleasant
  8. 39, 080 - Late night count to congratulate Manchester United on winning the Europa League final. Some happiness for the city at least. I listened to the match on the radio and the atmosphere sounded amazing. Not sure how the Ajax fans were allowed to bring flares into the stadium though...
  9. 39, 069 - Designating this one as the Nicky Hayden tribute count (His bike carried number 69 when he won his MotoGP title)
  10. I'm sure the F1 community will pay some sort of tribute at this weekend's Monaco GP.
  11. 39, 050 - Halfway to another of those nice round numbers
  12. I read that on the news this morning at the same time as I heard about the Manchester attack. I know he'd been in an accident and was critically ill, but it was still a shock that he'd died. We're big motorsport people in our house, mainly F1, but my dad and I follow the various motorbike categories as much as we can too. He will be deeply missed. It's been a horrible day for news all round, hasn't it?
  13. 39, 043 - Maybe they're waiting for the 30th anniversary of Pop. They always said the album was a bit unfinished, maybe by 2027 they'll actually be happy with it
  14. 39, 028 - Sorting books on to a new bookcase is very therapeutic. Then I come back and find people on social media trying to use last night as an excuse to spout racism and hatred At least here in the counting thread, it is a safe, pleasant space
  15. And already on social media there are people trying to use it as an excuse to stir up racism and hatred before we even have a full picture of what happened or who did it This is where I don't like the modern 24-hours news culture - we don't need to see endless speculation and disturbing footage. Reporters need to focus on facts rather than chasing distressed witnesses. I will not put my TV on and watch that. I will minimise social media today because again, already there are people sharing clips without thinking of the distress they will cause. I hope that the missing people are found. M
  16. 39, 025 - Counting to try and distract myself from the horrible news One thing is for sure, events in Manchester will not put me off seeing U2 in July.
  17. 38, 972 - Posting one last number... while listening to One
  18. 38, 959 - The counting has been much better today
  19. 38, 956 - Still half an hour until noon here. Time-zones are funny things
  20. 38, 953 - I caved in and watched a video from last night's show. Couldn't help it
  21. 38, 946 - Adding one last number before I log off. Goodnight Zootops!
