My 7.5 mile training walk for Woodlarks today became a 10 mile shocker - blame cousin Johnny

My Woodlarks charity walk training plan for today was simple. My training path is the 2.5 miles path along the River Avon between Conham Hill car park and the Chequer's pub. It is a splendid walk which on Tuesday I did alone both ways (5 miles) and on Thursday I also did both ways but with Joshua in his buggy. Joshua and I saw ducks, swans, a train on the hill, all sorts of boats, a heron, blossom, a horse, it was great fun. 

Today I planned the five mile round circuit at which point cousin Johnny, a godfather to Joshua, would join us for a walk to the pub so leaving me having done a straight 7.5 miles. But Johnny arrived in his car and thus post lunch we had to walk another 2.5 miles back to that car so he could speed back to our house to dump it before heading off to the airport. Being a junior doctor he has vast amounts of time and money for endless holidays.

So thanks to Johnny my training walk today totalled 10 miles which is a bit more than i was expecting. I am feeling rather stiff. But with 49 days left to the 32 mile walk for Woodlarks I am feeling more confident about my ability to complete that trek on the day. 

Brokerman Dan and I have now raised 28% of our £20,000 target for this great charity in just over a fortnight. If you have donated already I say thanks. If not think of my aching feet tonight and, I am sure you can spare a tenner to donate HERE

Queers for Palestine and against Israel but it sure is not vice versa as Al Qaws discovered last week

On the left wing madrassas that are the Universities of the West and in other epicentres of liberal and progressive thought support for Palestine and opposition to Israel, ranging for demands to boycott it, the drumming out of Israeli lecturers and calls for a Palestinian state “from sea to sea”, i.e the destruction of Israel are mainstream. Anyone opposing this virtue signalling will soon discover, as did uber-liberal US chat show host Bill Maher last week, that they are soon lumped in with the wicked Jews amid calls for their career destruction.
