    Good luck to anyone trying to get Costco to do seasonal tire changeover, they're booking mid May  =)

    Never heard of seasonal tire change over until now , I do at some point go from shorts to pants , but I can do that without a booking 
    It's not mandatory in Ontario (wish it is) to have winter tires but it's safer and we get insurance discount, for not wearing slippers in the snow so to speak.

    It was fun in Quebec when it became law in 2008

    Did mine several weeks back. I’d do yours if you lived closer (but only if you would cook me a hot meal).

    Cooking onions in butter.  One of the great condiments.



    Your picture of the desert sunset does a lot more justice than my sunrise this morning. The sunrise to work is one of my favorite settings.

    When you can hit the Sonoran Desert after a few days of rain, it is one of the most beautiful and magic places in the world (I've only managed to hit it once, out of several visits).

    Ian Rush, Bob Paisley, Steve Gerrard, Jan Molby - are you watching?  Names and a cultural reference that will pass you by, but in the words of Margaret Thatcher ‘Rejoice, Rejoice!’  which is a throw-back to the reference you will be unaware of in the last sentence (link at the bottom).

    The mighty Eagles cruised with considerable comfort / squeezed past Liverpool last Sunday to blow the whole title race open.  This was something of a Palace tradition for several years, nicking a win against a top three team in the final throes of the season.  and Arsenal lost too of course.  But that is all yesterday’s water, to mangle metaphors.  It’s a double game week looming though I shall not detain you with the mid-weekers as there is only so much insight and analytics I can share in one go, not for legal reasons but my attention span.  

    Saturday

    Luton v Brentford : The Bees have done their sums and know that with last weeks win at Sheffield Utd and a win against one of the few other teams placed below them will see them all but safe.  Any points above survival are wasted effort right? 0-1 

    Sheff Utd v Burnley : if this is an away win, then the Clarets could just about escape but it will need a big reversal of their form across the season.  It would also all but condemn the Blades.  But let’s go nuts. 2-2

    Wolves v Arsenal : wounded Gunners will have to be back to their best despite last week’s reversal against Villa and mid-week dumping out of the Champions League.  Boiled over? Maybe, we’ll know by the end of this. 1-2

    Sunday 

    Everton v Notts Forest : oooh, the scorned will convene and can compare noted about how the Premier League has conspired against them / enforced the rules all teams know full well about. Come on Forest, cheer us all up and smash the Toffees - what larks it shall be.  0-2

    Villa v Bournemouth : The Cherries have flagged recently and Villa are operating with a  full head of steam - a home win nudges them closer to CL entry for next season and no-one saw that coming.  2-1

    Palace v West Ham : naturally we will win by a huge margin given our humiliation of Liverpool last week.  Only joking, this is Palace so 0-0.

    Fulham v Liverpool : The Cottagers have nothing at stake and Liverpool, also now ejected from the CL could surmount the league whilst City are distracted. I think they will via a sparkly 0-3 victory. 

    AOB

    FA Cup semi-finals are 

    Saturday : Man City v Chelsea could be fun and your chance to see a £2bn worth of footballer all in one place at the same time. Don’t care about the score.

    Sunday : Coventry v Man Utd, in case you don’t know Coventry is a small city adjacent to Birmingham that was heavily remodelled by the Luftwaffe in the mid20th Century.   Don’t care about the score. 

    Keep any eye out for the subsequent mid-week fixtures.  And here’s a link to help make a modicum of sense of my opening remarks.

    'Twill be interesting to see how Man U conspire to make the FA Cup semi more interesting than it should be.  I do think that those that dropped out of Europe this week will have a chip on their shoulder that will be large enough to overcome their fatigue.  The fatigue won't set in until mid week.  It's times like these where a manager earns his keep as he manages the minutes.  I'm just not sure what metrics they use to decide who needs a break in any given game.

    a lot is smoke and mirrors. Some injuries are recovered in remarkable timeframes, others linger for a long long time and are undoubtedly a mask. 
    Players are very tightly monitored for fitness and conditioning with enormous amounts of data harvested to inform a matrix, by the club.  Of course that all falls flat when the player is too important or declares an injury.  
    Certainly elite player workload has grown in recent years - up to 60 competitive matches for the top players.  And margins, therefore career harm - are very fine.  
    There’s no collision data, AFIK, collected but it can’t be far off.  Rugby have intelligent mouth guards now and there’s more head injury assessments being carried out as a result. 

    Anyhoo- let’s get ready to laugh at/with/about Utd.  👍

    I am not familiar with Holey Confections. Thanks for sharing. The layered donut they feature in the DD episode seems to be what I would call a Cronut (croissant/donut). The first place I ever saw them is ArtIsIn bakery - a great local spot. Some of my favourite local sandwich places feature their bread. Suzy Q is a big name in donuts here. There is one location not far from me (bread crumbs for you 🙂). One of my absolute favourite local bakeries is Aux Deux Frères, in Aylmer. Just fantastic.

    Just came across this video and I thought you might appreciate the musicianship. The guy is insane. Amazing to watch live. One of the most underrated players of our time, IMO. Exceptional improvising and shredding like a mother while somehow keeping notes clean, and as a former teacher of mine used to say, “making every note count”. Ian’s a former Berklee student.

    Man U let a three goal lead go, then bailed out by VAR to inch past Cov'. 
    I don't know Sir Jim Ratcliffe, but you don't get to be a billionaire by being cuddly.  Even a win in the FA Cup final will not save him.  It's Van Gaal all over again. 
    So - who do you think will replace Erik?
