FUTURE STARS..

Fantastic evening of rugby at Eugene Cross Park presented by RTB RFC...
The Club hosted the youngsters of Pontypridd RFC and the age groups from U'7-U'12 took part.. 
There was a good crowd there too fair play and quite a few of the Mighty Steelmen showed their Support too..
My images from this evening have been edited and the discs will be with RTB RFC tomorrow..
Congratulations to both Clubs on a fine show and it looks like the future of Rugby in The Valleys of Wales is looking mighty fine...

VERY SAD DAY IN OUR HISTORY...

This day in 1966 saw a disaster in the Welsh village of Aberfan in which 144 people perished when a colliery spoil tip collapsed and engulfed the Pantglas Junior School which was full of children..
48 years ago....

THE BIGGIE..

Came in from work earlier, opened up the lid on my MacBook Pro and had a notification to say an update was available.. I was quite shocked to see it was for the new Apple Corp' o/s X YOSEMITE..
Took approx' 40 mins to download and a short while later it was agreeing to all the legal stuff and Hello YOSEMITE..
Looks tidy and lets hope this doesn't bring the issues that iOS 8 brought to the masses!?
Now I 'know' that I'll never go back to that Windows shite after owning a Mac!

First half was ok BUT the second half was back to the usual shite!! How much longer are we going to play like a Sunday morning pub team eh!! We've been in this Sunday morning pub team attitude for far too long now!! Shocking!!!! No urgency, playing the ball in our own half when we need goals and THAT defence Again!!!!!
If my Mam didn't read this blog, I really would let rip with the swearing vocabulary!!!!!!!
******* ****
Still...
ONWARDS & UPWARDS EH..
Ah Well..

BREWERY EVENING II....

OK Folks..
My Very Good Friends at TUDOR BREWERY are Hosting another of their BREWERY EVENINGS..
The date for the second TUDOR BREWERY EVENING is on  SATURDAY NOVEMBER 8th at HQ..
click here to find out more Info' on what will be yet another Fantastic Evening..

WILL IT BE LICKING GOOD...

Now, now, calm down you lot...
The title refers to the release tomorrow of Androids new Operating system(o/s) for their mobile platforms called 'Lollipop'..
Same as Apple Corp' iOS that run their mobile platform...
Having got an iPad I was rather not impressed with iOS8 to be honest.. There's quite a lot of 'things' new on iOS8 that the Android o/s already has and to me, Apple Corp' are playing catch up with Google Android..
So tomorrow will be another advanced step for the Android o/s over iOS and looking forward to the release..
I have another 10 months left on my EE 4G contract and my Galaxy S4 is doing mighty fine indeed.. Whether I will go back to Apple Corp' handsets or stay with Samsung or HTC is the decision to take next summer and will depend what reliable handsets Android announce and whether Apple Corp' can sort out the nonsense with their handsets that seem to be plaguing them at the mo'....
As I don't do 'shitebook' or any other pathetic media platform apart from my NCR Photography on 'shitebook' and Twitter, so long as I can talk on the handset then that'll do me...
Still looking forward to the next fortnight though when the new o/s for my MacBook Pro will be realised called 'Yosemite.' Now that will be worth it..

6 WEEKS TO GO.....

NEW READ...

Just downloaded to my Kindle, the new novel The Narrow Road To The Deep North by Man Booker Prize novelist Richard Flanagan.. 
Although this is inspired by the authors father, who like my Grandfather, was a jap POW in WWII, it's different to the way my Grandfather's life during the war as this is about the Lads' life on the notorious Burma Railway..
Looking forward to reading this..

Wonder what my Grampa & Uncle Wyndham(who was in the South Wales Borderers fighting the japs through Burma) would make of this... 
When my Grampa was alive, the stories he told me about how he and the Lads were treated by the japs and how he couldn't go on the Armistice Walks as it brought back too many painful memories for him, sickened me and to this day I have Never And Will Never Ever Work for the japs!!

(ANOTHER) ROAD RANT....

When I'm not working from home, I travel to my office in the middle of Cardiff via the A470 and this journey is rather frustrating for us 'proper' drivers..
Either I need my eyes tested again to see if I am totally blind(as I couldn't see any vehicles in the left hand lane) or there are a hell of a lot of drivers in their vehicles that see vehicles driving in the left hand side lane and stay in the overtaking lane to overtake these invisible vehicles!! 
Unbelievable, that vehicle after vehicle stayed in the OVERTAKING LANE for as far as I could see this morning, tailgating and quite a few were STILL on their mobiles and women applying make up, whilst on the move!!!! UNBELIEVABLE...

RUGBY MUSINGS..

The Legend aka REL, is getting all excited as The Mighty Steelmen head to townie land on Saturday to take on Newport RFC..
The black & ambers, who are currently lying in 9th position out of 12 in The Premiership, are the only Club to beat The Steelmen in the league this season.. That was at The Fortress and on a day, The Steelmen were not at the races..
For those of us who Follow 'The Beautiful Game' click here to go to The Legends vast Libarary to view his Fantastic Rugby Ditties...
Long Live The Legend

HO HO HO NOOOO

Well around lunchtime, it was reported to me by The Boy, that we had a sleet shower in Beaufort Hill, Blaenau Gwent today!
Now hang on a mo'... Ain't we supposed to have Autumn before Winter?!
Get the shovels ready Folks..

IN THE DOUGH..

Our Mam & Dad are regularly baking cakes and bread at home, using some of the equipment we had from our own family run bakery and confectionery business in Brynmawr.. 
Today Dad made bread and of course, we had to take a loaf and quality test it.. 
Pity we haven't got the business now, as the crap we see on the shelves of supermarkets these days, we wouldn't even think about putting that on sale in our shop!
