Great day at Sutton United but yet another defeat this time to Hayes and Yeading.  Losing one nil.  Though next season should be interesting when we hopefully have a 3G pitch.  A third generation plastic pitch surface.

Why does anyone care about the Oscars? It's not like the winners are anything like the best films. The best award a film can get is if it is screened and talked about 20, 30, 50 or 100 years from now.
The complete list of nominations for the 2016 Oscars is here! The Best Picture nominees include: The Big Short, Bridge of Spies, Brooklyn, Mad Max: Fury Road, The Martian, The Revenant, Room and Spotlight. The Revenant received 12 nominations and Mad Max: Fury Road has 10. See all the nominees for the 2016 Oscars right here!

Quick question. Do collections owners post content direct to the collection? or post to public stream then add to collection?

But a post to public which is then moved (not reshared) to a collection will not appear twice, so no one will notice, if that's what you do with an older posting, for example. +Alex Lapidus+Oshi Shikigami​

Another one gone. Loved the Heat is On that Fry sung for Beverley Hills Cop. For many though it will be the Eagles he will be most remembered but they were just before my time. 
The Eagles founder and guitarist Glenn Frey has died, the band announces on its website.

From a few years ago this is a wonderful interview with the late Terry Wogan. Getting to the heart of his relationship with Ireland. 
In this interview first published in 2007, Ireland’s most successful broadcaster, who died today, discusses his career, Ireland, the Troubles and identity: ‘I’m an effete, urban Irishman. I was a West Brit from the start’

Happy Burns night to everyone. All they had left was vegetarian haggis. Guess what? It was lovely. Like a really nice sage stuffing.

The mains reasons for disliking my stay at Pebbles Reach. First, asked to pay up front and second it turned out breakfast was not included. Paying up front and not on departure suggests distrust and not having breakfast included was a let down for somewhere that describes itself as a bed and breakfast. They said it would have been sixty rather than fifty had breakfast been included. The room was small but in fairness it was cosy and had all what you would need crammed into it. Overall staying here felt like staying in a shared house of a mate. Looked like a family was staying at the premises and they were renting out a few rooms. We wanted to be near the seaside and Pebbles does have a good location but we got a room not with a sea view but instead a view of the grimy back streets of Herne Bay. A for sale sign greets you on arrival that should have been a warning.

Decent old skool pub on the up and coming Union Street. Decent choice of ale, good pub food in particular the ale pie which is tasty and good sized. The pub has sports covered with matches from Sky. Plenty to televisions but thankfully it does not have one massive all dominating screen that can overwhelm some pubs. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

Old school Indian restaurant that is popular with locals. The interior is comfortable if uninspiring and it reminded me of similar restaurants in either Manchester and Birmingham. Service is average, when I asked for a Mango Lassai from the menu the waiter told me they did not have any. No Lassai This was a first for an Indian restaurant. Though the menu covers many of the usual Indian dishes with coconut rice being rather nice. I had a Tropical Balti not as exotic as it sounds. It contains a mix of beef, chicken and prawns. Quite nice but nothing special. As the meal went on people came and went with take away's, phone was ring for home delivery and the noise from the kitchen could be heard clearly. On the kitchen, a recent inspection by the council hygiene inspectors only gave this place a one (highest is five) you might worry. However I did not and the bill came to £35 pound for two with drinks.

Not a bad pub if want something of the beaten track from the area around Victoria. The night I visited it was really packed but the bar staff served as quickly considering the crowd. Thinking about it the best feature of this pub is the long, narrow beer garden. Well hardly garden as its mostly stone maybe back yard would be better to describe it. Recommended on a hot day for the backyard. Ale is pretty good as well.

Reasonably average pub but if you go on Saturday night then weather permitting it is better to sit out in the beer garden. This is the best feature the pub has. Once inside if its a Saturday night it will be chock full with people, barely enough room to move and getting a pint will be labour of love.

Little tricky to find but once you discover its charms you will feel relaxed. Cosy and modern venue with a cafe and nice seating. The programme is eclectic and as Time Out reckon 'its a place for rising talent' .

A quality Irish Pub, you know its not a fake Irish pub because of the service. The bar has got plenty of staff and the service is excellent. Plenty of TV screens with GAA and soccer on most of the time. Even horse racing is catered for. Best thing of all about this pub is the Sunday carvery which is the most generous in terms of portion in London. Great value for money.
