Richard's Diary

June 2005

Kiss me Hardy

By Richard on June, 29th 2005 - 4:42 pm

Portsmouth, England was the setting yesterday of the 200 year celebration of the famous British victory over the French/Spanish fleet at the Battle of Trafalgar. This victory gave the British Empire control of the seas which lead to 100 years of world domination.170 vessels took part in a reconstruction of this famous victory, with a full light and sound show. Once again Lord Nelson died, but the victory was still his. Over 200'000 people gathered to watch the event, including the Queen and other leading figures of British culture. I watched the show whilst puffing on a cigar named after another one of England's historical figures, the H.Upmann Sir Winston.

Heat wave !

By Richard on June, 27th 2005 - 1:06 pm

Well, we've been waiting for it for months now and it finally arrived. The heat wave is here ! 35°C today, as it was all weekend. This is my favorite time of the year, as I am allowed to feel lazy without feeling guilty. A rocking chair on the balcony, a fan, a cold beer in hand and a box of San Cristobal El Principes and I just melt away. Heaven !

Give a young musician a break

By Richard on June, 20th 2005 - 4:15 pm

A friend of mine has entered a music competition and needs your vote to earn a place in the final of the local Battle of the Bands.

Click on the link - Battle of the Bands

Click on the yellow square 'Virtual Battle' (left side of screen)

Click on 'Votes for Pop League'

Click on 'Pax' (my friend's band)

The more the merrier. Many thanks in advance for your help.

Well Richard, I'd say your friend is either a very skilled musician or your website is having a very positive effect. Probably a combination of both.

Festival of Music

By Richard on June, 17th 2005 - 2:19 pm

This weekend sees the celebration of Father's Day, as well as the Fête de la Musique (Festival of Music). With the weather promising to be in the 30°C's, this should be a fantastic weekend of good music, good food and fantastic cigars. I will be watching my brothers band, Swab, on the Saturday evening on the lake front in Nyon. All welcome. Enjoy a weekend of festivities, where ever you are !

The fastest man in the world

By Richard on June, 15th 2005 - 1:37 pm

9.77 seconds to run 100 meters. This is what Asafa Powell (Jam) did last night in Athens to set a new World Record. The scary thing is that most athletics experts say that Powell has not yet reached his full potential. I guess it won't be long before we see someone run under the 9.7 second mark. This super human achievement gives me hope as I will be playing in my annual football tournament this weekend. I am also hoping to achieve the 9.7 mark........that is staying on the field for 9 minutes and 7 seconds without collapsing. Courage to the athletes !

High School Reunion

By Richard on June, 13th 2005 - 2:03 pm

I had the pleasure of attending my high school reunion this weekend. I had a wonderful time, especially meeting with old friends I hadn't seen for over 15 years. It was funny to see the different paths people have taken. The Eco-Socialist who now works for a large pharmaceutical corporation, the student of business who started up his own charity and the sportsman, who now looks like three sportsmen. I crossed my first love and am thankful that our relationship was actually only every in my head. I am really looking forward to next years event

had you first love taken on a few kilos or was that also a figment of your imagination

The motorcycle diaries

By Rick on June, 07th 2005 - 6:32 pm

I have always been into the Easy Rider, laid back motorcycle lifestyle, without ever possessing more horsepower, than that found in a scooter. As you can imagine, the embarrassment was enormous growing up with my rackety old 50cc scooter whilst my friends paraded round on their 125cc motorcycles, fully clad in racing leathers. As the years went by, the gap in cc's only seemed to grow, as did my embarrassment. A grown man, dressed in racing leathers flying over the Pont du Mont Blanc on a small scooter has been the subject of many a joke over the years. Thus you can understand my excitement, as I am about to purchased my first real motorcycle. I have been looking at a Triumph Bonneville. I like the lines, giving an old school feeling to this bike. If all goes well, it will be Northern Italy or the South of France by motorbike this summer for holiday. Bonne dégustation, Rick.

European Union suffers set back

By Richard on June, 02nd 2005 - 3:50 pm

Following the clear French 'No' vote on the 29th May, it was the Dutch who followed suit yesterday, 01st of June, with a massive 60% 'No' vote, to the implementation of the European constitution. In the three countries where the question has been put to referendum, two have heavily voted 'No', with large turn outs in both cases. With the UK now considering dropping the idea of a referendum, fearing that this would also lead to definite 'No', it begs the question, are the European leaders on another planet ? Is their grand idea of a United States of Europe blinding them to Reality. Whilst the People struggle with rising unemployment (France over 10%) and rising social costs for a collapsing system, the leaders paint us a pictures of a new utopist Super Economic State, ready to compete with the US and the emerging China. Have the leaders sitting in their white tower in Bruxelles lost site of what the People really need and want ? Do they care ?

// irishcarny87 // June, 07th 2005 // 9:05 am

It's obvious at this point that the European Union is not going to succeed. The leaders' dream of competing with the U.S. and China economically, socially, and even militarily might have looked good on paper, but were too unrealistic. At this point, it would be wise of the leaders to drop the idea and focus on healing the ills in their own countries. Right now all they are doing is kicking a dead horse. If they keep on kicking, it would lead me to believe that they no longer care about the welfare of their people, but about stopping the United States from being the one, single world super power.

// cyril2 // June, 02nd 2005 // 4:33 pm

well you are wrong. the spanish people also voted about two months ago and they said 'yes' !

do I win a cigar for correcting you ??? ;-)
