With just over 12 hours to go before the 2013 British and Irish Lions squad is announced, there are probably some nervous players waiting to hear their fortune.
For those living in hope but soon to be disappointed, there will always be the national tours. But they will never compare to being a Lion.
To those selected: congratulations and may they roar in Australia.
How I wish I was going to be travelling with them.
I bought a new laptop last weekand having been a user of Dell machines for many many years I was seduced by the apparent good looks and power of a new Samsung machine.
When I got home I really felt quite pleased with the purchase until, that is, I started using the Windows 8 operating system.
Who on earth designed and authorized this dog’s breakfast of an operating system?
Who had done the Usability testing? Who ever it was has really failed in my opinion.
And the worst moment of all: how on earth do you switch the machine off? It’s so different from previous editions of Windows that it can only be change for change’s sake. And that is never a good basis for change.
Overall not impressed, but then, it does look nice.
