Indianapolis 2


altogether a good visit there. The only real hassle is the lack of direct flights meaning that going through Chicago is often the route. One thing strikes you immediately about USA that they eate differently. Not only do they eat more, seemingly much more, but they eat different foods. Eating also seems to be the national occupation at airports. So many different types and shops. Hotels focus a lot however on heathy eating. Fruit is abundant. blueberries to die for. The one thing lacking though is bread. Too often there is only cakes, muffins and sweet types of bread available at breakfast. toast and rools do a vanishing act. hot tea is also difficult to obtain and they want you to make your own tea. So a kit arrives, cup, hot water, milk and tea bag. The tea bag is never the same as UK.
the temperature also changed by the hour. Really warm one hour and then suddenly snow on the way to the airport.
The congress was also well worth attending. Us folks get together annually for a 2 day meeting and yes the talks might be bit droll and even boring and some unneccessary but the social ability to put faces to e-mail names was priceless.

Brentford 1 Basingstoke 0


There was little real evidence of the maigic of the FA cup today at Griffin Park. a slightly better crowd than expected due to the 1pm kick off and the mild reduction in admission prices to £15 of 3553. Brentford started well and fully deserved their opening goal from sam saunders, a free kick from 5 yards outside the box. but that then led to a decline in both effort and quality, and being honest Bees looked like they were shepherding a 1-0 victory for 80 minutes. good game? not really. Did basingstoke deserve a draw? yes. Only Diardouraga and saunders can really claim any credit. Grella failed to give a clue as to how he scored 4 goals midweek and was woeful at times. Still, Bees are in the second round of the FA cup and thats only a game away from Chelsea, Man utd etc……

finally, a third win on the trot for Walton and Hersham, away at Croydon Athletic 3-2.  A great run.
