The disbelief of some, at the fact that Simona Halep pasted Serena Williams 6-2, 6-2. In the Wimbledon final.

It's an accepted fact in any raquet sport that, "if you can get the ball back, you can't lose."

Serena is only interested in the Grand Slms, the big money toyrnaments, whereas Halep and the rest of the top players are willing to travel all over the World. week in, week, out, playing the less remunerative tour events.

it came as no surprise to me that Serena was outplayed. In the rounds opposing players were intimidated by her speed of shot. Halep demonstrated that if you mix it up and get her moving from side to side, her lack of fitness would be her downfall.
She was unaffected by the agressive shouting of Serena when she won a few points.

Hi,

Thanks DM. If I modified a similar car I would also add a Bazooka on the boot lid; the front gun would be useful whilst following pedal cyclists up through Flockton village where there are double white lines most of the way to Grange Moor; the Bazooka I'd cheerfully deploy against tailgaters. :banghead::banghead::banghead:

I've just bought a TIG welder so could modify our Skoda Yeti. ;)

Kind regards, Colin.

An Irish boy stands crying at the side of the road.
A man asks him,“What's wrong?”
The boy says,“Me ma is dead”.
“Oh bejaysus," the man says. “Do you want me to call Father O'Riley for you?”
The boy replies,“No tanks mister. Sex is the last ting on me mind at the moment..”

Careful Sir. Forensics appears to be a brutal science.

Hi,

Whom would know La Garden if aliens had landed. I used to have discussions with an employee at Aldi who was forever trying to convince me the world is flat;


There are lots of these videos on YouTube; I've watched a couple but wonder how such thinkers can even tie shoelaces. The guy I spoke to was a cleaner and I asked him if management knew of his belief and did he expect any promotion if they did; I also asked where he thought he would be in ten years time; he replied "still cleaning" now we had some common ground.

A few weeks ago not having seen the guy for a while I asked a store assistant if the guy had fallen off the end of the earth; my comment caused much amusement; the guy no longer works there. Still I'm a dinosaur and can't understand why people behave weirdly then complain they attract the wrong kind of attention. :muted:

I smile every day because at 71 I'm a coffin dodger.

Kind regards, Colin.

So I am downstairs viewing out the windows that overlooke the yard and I hear this loud sharp thrap noise from the upstairs windows. I notice a bird dive down toward the bushes around the bird feeders in front of me. And then, like downy snow, feathers gently rock themselves to the ground in front of me. Poor Bird.....
