Yep what a final, once again Doncaster "Donny" is on the map. Earlier my old man heard to old dudes down the paper shop; talking about one half of Two Grand, commenting how he was good on the club circuit years ago. Britain's Got Talent; all I've got is a brew and a grin. Loving the Stavros flatley act.

Having seen lots of posters, press ads and indeed reading various reviews, the other night I tried Pear Cider. Whether it was me I just couldn't smell the pears. It was quite a refreshing beverage but I prefer a cup tea. Today I plan to rest my legs after the bank holiday bike riding sessions.

Today I've been dodging rain, chuckling to myself about "Tit Tax" eaten on the move, done some writing about myself and discovered a fantastic book which I must have in my collection soon. Reet; I need a brew oh and need to check some photography out which my mate as steered me to check out; its of a "Cycling Nature". Bless you Victoria Pendleton you cycling super star.

I drew this in my sketchbook the other day every now and again I'll draw strange plants and flowers. Again the rain falls. On my bike ride I spotted on the roadside a Toy cheetah, I'm wishing now I'd picked it up now to draw it.

Well readers I've been up tinkering and making some changes to yesterdays decorative peacock image. Sometimes I just cannot help myself revisiting my imagery until I'm happy. Meanwhile this above image I had doodled but quite liked. It was in response to the recent rain.

Just learnt that leading supermarkets are feeling the original artwork for the manic street preachers new album is inappropriate for displaying on there shelves. The cover is a painting by the talented Jenny Saville. Not Jimmy Saville or the talented Peter Saville. Jenny Saville eh?
Well I've got up, its throwing it down with rain outside; so to cheer me up I've opened my new trainer box to smell my new sneaks that I purchased yesterday. I love the smell of boxfresh sneaks in the morning coupled with a brew, your in heaven.

Here you go readers, I drew these two fine chap enjoying a fine ale each. I've noticed at one of my local supermarkets the bottled Ale section is multiplying in numbers, the problems of "Booze Britain" continue; but hey I quite like these dudes that I've drawn. A real cross section of social status coming together over a quick light ale, one is discussing the horses, the other is discussing his broom handle and the merits of nasty pasty with brown sauce. Check todays back page of the sports section in the Guardian for my illustration.

Ken Dodd has received word that his Christmas show, which has been a calendar event in Nottingham's seasonal festivities for 55 years, would Not be staged this year. There was a number of complaints he had not been funny enough. Meanwhile across the pond Barack Obama stormed the Whitehouse with a 16 minute set with gags. Personally I found it funny when I saw the news footage of him in the burger bar.

Well readers; I had the best night out in Manchester with my old Salford Uni mates exchanging stories. I can certainly recommend watching cartoon episodes of Batman with a hangover before you tackle a continental breakfast in a Lenny Henry suite. We established at the beginning of the evening that my old mate Bully still has his tackle pierced. Hang on a minute readers, I just asked him out aloud in the Tree of Trust to clarify things amongst the group. Think on; I'm just a cheeky chap from Donny who likes a brew and the ladies.

Readers I'm quite taken when the media do write ups on how many times Gordon Ramsay uses the "F"- word. But after last nights helping of Gok Wan and his style programme I'm quite taken how many times Gok says "Move those Bangers", "Work those bangers" It does make me giggle Gok's use of the word "Bangers", but hey that's just me.

Well today cycling home a chap on a scooter overtook me. For some reason I tried my best to keep up with the scooter other drivers passing me looked on pulling faces; for a while I kept up the pace. I've never shifted on my bike so quick.
