The Mighty QPR

If you want to see what the ravaj gave thanks for this past weekend, then have a look at the first minute of this vid. 5 points clear again at the top of the league. Hurrah!

Great Moments of 5771 #1

The ravaj preached her first Shabbat morning sermon in the pulpit where her father used to stand ... and her mother stayed awake. The ravaj was assured that this was a great compliment!

Happy Thanksgiving

This is Courage the turkey, being pardoned last year by President Obama. As a long-time vegetarian, I can only encourage you all to do your own pardoning. Whether or not you do, may I wish all who celebrate a very happy Thanksgiving. I am off to Wisconsin and therefore off the grid for a week or so.

Just Another Saturday Night

Sitting here in London it is hard to remember times like these for a QPR fan. In the olden days we were Premiership class. In the olden days I watched them home and away. In the olden days my father was alive. Those days seem far away, and I don't remember how I felt then. This makes it rather difficult to cope with the fact that tonight QPR are top of their division again, and still unbeaten. It's not a joke, and it's not a mistake. Pardon me for a moment ...


I celebrate along with Rob Hulse (above) who scored his first goal for the R's this afternoon. But now I must pack for a Thanksgiving trip to Wisconsin, knowing that I shall not be here next week when we play our great rivals Cardiff City. I may have to light a candle to St. Albert!

Momentary Catharsis

It's almost Monday over here in London, and it's been raining most of the weekend, that is when it has not been nipple-freezing cold. Then, thanks to the lovely Dorothy Snarker, I saw this:

Have a lovely week!

Royal Highlight of the Month

This is what the Daily Mail had to say about Prince Harry's attire:

"Prince Harry looked delighted with himself yesterday as he helped Scouts scale a wall at the Imperial War Museum at the launch of a forces charity campaign. But what comes up, must come down, so the saying goes, and Harry's trousers certainly looked like they could do with a heave-up as the prince revealed he was wearing a very pink pair of pants."

If you want to read more of the Mail's concept of the important news of the day, feel free to look it up for yourself. It may be one of my guilty secrets that I have bookmarked their website, but at least I don't have to enable anyone else! Meanwhile, I think that colour pants suits him.

O Schadenfreude

This post is probably only to be appreciated by QPR fans and others with discerning football taste.

For the best result of the weekend, look here.
