Hail to the king, baby. Cool

Did you win Bully's big prize?

No. I had to listen to Ben practising his new violin. No joke.
Sounds like bumble bees. No

He's playing at the Magnolia Motor Lounge on Friday night.

We saw him live last night actually, at the Railhead Smokehouse in Willow Park. His voice is superb.

Yes Randy Brown was there too - he wasn't but as good as Grady though and we had already eaten before we got there at a vegan restaurant - the Spiral Diner? That food is divine!

Randy isn't really a great singer, and I think he knows that. He's more of a comic that sings pretty good, and an all around nice guy. He's willing to help these younger guys get where he's not going to get.

Spiral Diner is in my hood. Never eaten there because i'm an omnivore. Cool

Yeah Ben and I were saying that about Randy, he's an okay singer but Grady put him in the shady.
Ben's a meat-eater after being a vegetarian for years but the food in the Spiral Diner is soooooo good I think even you would like it. It is seriously just delicious.

A Texan vegetarian? Never heard of such a thing. Wink

I would like it, but I would be hungry in an hour. I love vegetables, but need a little animal flesh thrown in.

Maddog it is filling! Trust me. Protein from plant products is just as filling.  It's not all chickpeas and artichokes - their "bacon" is divine and so is their cheese.

I'm not a vegan as I love eggs and cheese but that food is seriously, seriously good! Give it a go and get back to me...I bet you're impressed and suitably full. Ben isn't a massive eater and neither am I but we stayed full on that meal for the rest of the day.

Hey if you're about tomorrow and we get up in time - you want to meet their and have some dinner with us?

So I'm back. Took three tablets of anti-anxiety medication and slept 7 hours of the 8 hour flight, missed my meals and drinks apparently.

8 hours is the quickest I've flown that. Always knew there was a short cut.

Yeah. It's eleven hours from SFO to Heathrow. They must have found a wormhole.

I think it was my powers of speed being released whilst we flew. I’m sort of like a superhero. Or summat.

I don't know about DFW, but SFO to Heathrow goes by way of the great circle route, not west to east. You drop down over Glasgow and head to Heathrow. I usually grab the 4 pm United Airlines, have cocktails, dinner, take a melatonin, and I'm waking up at noon in London.

I take the Paccadilly line to Earl's Court station, cab to the Harrington Gardens hotel. Easy-peasy.

I don't know about DFW, but SFO to Heathrow goes by way of the great circle route, not west to east.  You drop down over Glasgow and head to Heathrow.  I usually grab the 4 pm United Airlines, have cocktails, dinner, take a melatonin, and I'm waking up at noon in London.

I take the Paccadilly line to Earl's Court station, cab to the Harrington Gardens hotel.  Easy-peasy.

I was talking about going from the UK to SFO. I didn’t mention DFW??? confused

I know, but Maddog did, so I wanted to allow for that.  Remember DFW us much farther south.  Maybe the arctic circle route is too far from down there.

I've flown New York Kennedy to Heathrow, and it's straight across the Atlantic.  Much different. I don't know...Dallas is 2,000-miles west.
