Having recently seen a long range forecast suggesting Britain will have a very cold winter, I'm now expecting it to be warm, probably accompanied by some more rain... But we can hope for a glistening, white winter.

This photo was taken in south Shropshire, sometime in the late '70s.

Back after a break for my little sister's wedding and some studying. Here is Moll looking fabulous on the big day.

Her lovely head dress was made by http://www.sarahdrew.com and I can definitely also recommend http://www.toscanaccio.co.uk as providers of a lovely tipple.

Well, what a fantastic Tour de France for the Brits. Jem retired before getting round to painting Wiggo, but he did paint the fantastic Cav.

I remember being summoned into the sitting room by my dad to see Chris Boardman win the 1994 prologue time trial: one of those sporting moments that you are really glad you saw. 

A week on Saturday the 2012 Tour de France starts, and this year a Brit could win the overall yellow jersey at the end of three weeks - that has never happened before... What's more it is the same Brit who might do quite well in the prologue. I know you never watch ITV4 but next Saturday I think you should.

Juan Manuel Fangio and the Maserati 250F

In his last and probably his finest ever Grand Prix victory on 4 August 1957, Fangio demonstrated the ability that had made him a legend in motor racing history. Having skillfully created a commanding lead of 30 seconds at the end of lap 12 of a 22 lap race in the German GP at the Nurburgring, he went into the pits for tyres and fuel. 
An appalling performance by the pit crew saw him emerge onto the circuit in third place, 48 seconds behind the Ferraris of Hawthorn and Collins. 
He drove his 2493cc six-cylinder 250F Maserati in an awe-inspiring fashion, breaking the lap record ten times during his pursuit. He caught and passed Collins and then Hawthorn to win by 4 seconds.
The victory secured his fifth World Championship title.

After the race Fangio said "I have never driven that quickly before in my life and I don't think I will ever be able to do it again".

Jem was asked to paint an illustration for the jacket of our village's, (Stottesdon), millennium book. 

Stottesdon means The Stud Farm on the Hill, which is why the heavy horses are in such a prominent position. The station is long gone, the shop is now a home. Happily the church, parts of which date back to the Saxon period, and the school are still there serving the community. 

When I was little the lady who ran the shop was called Mrs Flint, which I couldn't quite manage to pronounce and so instead called her Mrs Bint, (much to my parents' embarrassment). She was truly a Shropshire lass, and told my mum " 'er can reckon" when I knew how much change I needed when buying sweeties.

As 24 Hours of Le Mans is over for another year, this seemed a good choice to share this weekend: Woolf Barnato driving the Bentley Speed Six, Old Number One, in which he won the event in 1929 and 1930.
