London Necropolis Station!
at 22:46 22 Apr 2021

I had lunch at a pub called the Duke of Sussex near Waterloo Station today. The floor of the gents has a map of the area from about 100 years ago engraved on it, which was pretty amazing. Not only was there a leadworks, sawmill and brewery on the South Bank waterfront between Westminster and Waterloo Bridges, but there was a London Necropolis Station at the south end of Waterloo Station. Apparently a private company had a mortuary and chapel to receive dead bodies and send them on dedicated trains on the “London Necropolis Railway” straight to Brookwood cemetery and crematorium in Surrey, most famous passenger, Friedrich Engels. First, second and third class coffin tickets available.

I am 56 years old and hadn’t heard of it until I looked at the floor of a pub toilet!

Including real people in the stands! Can't see any of last year's also-rans moving up into contention this year. With a less taxing schedule than last season and better luck with injuries (possibly), I'm tipping the Raiders this year.

Don't know why I stumbled on this. Top marks to anyone who recognises our entry. Otherwise, hats off to the Southampton lad who has since played in Eastbourne, Iceland and Cambodia, have a laugh at Manchester United's kiddy, and whatever happened to the Arsenal boy?

Pawing the ground at the thought of getting away to somewhere new. Who better to turn to than the Frank and Nesta Boughs of LFW? Can I go first? Has anyone been to Chania in Crete and is it a good idea?

Flu Camp - any experiences?
at 14:05 15 Feb 2021

My youngest has applied to be part of a medical trial with a company called Flu Camp. She thinks if she's going to be locked up with nothing to do, she might as well get paid for it. Has anyone come across them?

That crept up on me. Looks like it might be another three day game. Root and Bairstow could do with an upturn in form.

...the last surviving (probably) widow of an American Civil War veteran had died, more than 155 years after the end of the war.
