I take it you're bemoaning Northern Ireland being knocked out of qualifying for the World Cup?

Meanwhile New Zealand clings to hope, having held on for a scoreless draw against Peru in Wellington. They now play the second leg in Lima on Thursday where anything could happen.

Peru are ranked 10th in the world by FIFA, although they didn't look like it here. It would be a disaster for them to be knocked out by the lowly kiwis! Here's hoping! And here's hoping they get out of the country with their skins if they do pull it off!

Nope, the inevitable happened 2-0 to Peru.

General agreement that they played better than us, although the one-hour bus trip that inexplicably took 4 hours and the plane from Argentina that somehow got diverted for an unscheduled fuel stop and the Peruvian jets screaming over the hotel in the early morning and the witch-doctors putting a curse on the team possibly contributed as well.

Oh, well. It's only four years till the next one. I may have to support Australia, although that will not be easy!

A book by our own Alec Gould.

One man's take on life told thru humorous short stories from his childhood on into his mid-50's; from feeling like an outcast in school to being an adult. His intent: hope. Hope in that you shall see, no matter how rough life can seem -and is- at times, that you may be able to enjoy it. Each story will bring a laugh, a smile, a tear, a lesson.

The 23rd Annual Book Awards said:
"We Really Need To Laugh" shares “memories which will resonate with many readers. Overall a creative presentation of the author’s life given in a rather sing-song poetic story telling style; a pleasant read"
