England v South Africa -The Rugby World Cup Final Game – 2nd November 2019 in Japan

UPDATE – I was as disappointed as all of you players, that you didn’t win, but why were you so very down – you won – into the Final!  What an achievement – Please, never think your ‘second place’ medal wasn’t worth having!  I was so disappointed seeing you take your medals off. I know I am nobody, but I was so proud of you.  You must set an example to others – especially young kids.  It is worth being second, third and fourth in the world.  I am screaming, thank you all for putting England somewhere, where we are all proud.  My two sisters were at 1966 World Cup game (and one sister was involved with that team) FABULOUS! 

Hey, this is just a quickie, because I am getting things ready for our jazz club for tonight (1st Nov) – See below for ‘Granties Dixie Six’ newsletter.  We shall be getting up – quite tired, but will soon be worked up with excitement, I’m sure, for this wonderful final (thank goodness, our neighbours are rugby fans too).  We spent this morning, watching Wales and New Zealand play, with a disappointing result, for us, but well done New Zealand.  As for tomorrow’s game, may the best team win – Keith and I will be thinking positive and screaming ‘Come on ENGLAND’ – yeah!

 

Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics

I just don’t know how I am going to be at the club tonight, because I was up watching the Winter Olympics till about 4am.  I haven’t been well enough to watch from the beginning of the Olympics, but recovered very quickly.  I loved the figure skating, the curling and speed skiing (well all events).  But have to write Farnborough Jazz Clubs congratulations to Don Parson for the men’s skeleton final and winning the first medal of the 2018 Winter Olympics for Great Britain.  I will return to add……..

Mo Farah wins 10Kmeters Gold                                         at London’s 2017 IAAF Championships

Oh wow, COME ON MO FARAH – WONDERFUL.  Mo, you have just made me cry with happy emotion.  You are fabulous and I salute you.  What a wonderful achievement winning the Gold Medal for 10,000m race at IAAF World Championships at ‘YOUR’ London Stadium.  I can’t wait to see it – no haven’t seen it yet, but look forward to seeing you – tissues to the ready. 

Good luck tonight Mo – and Usain Bolt.

 

Diane & Keith

Just two of your millions – no billions of fans.

Update:  Our huge wishes to Usain Bolt – a great sportsman – sorry you didn’t achieve the gold again, but brilliant to still go out on a high.
