    The Good Morning Thread 5th Apr 14 at 6:17 AM
    Well, we've got a goodnight thread so let's have a good morning one as well.

    Good morning everybody
    Me and the dog have had our morning constitutional and shortly I shall be venturing forth to the big Tesco to do my fortnightly shop. When I get home I've got 3 hours work related admin and paperwork to do

    The weather here is a bit nippy but at least there's no fog.

    As I have a massive fear of heights - this would not be a good idea.

    I live in fear of the day I have an accident and need the air ambulance.......

    I'd quite enjoy a visit to beautiful Wales.

    I did an Ancestry DNA thing and I am mostly Celtic - there is quite a bit of Welsh there.

    Yes but Stoke is quite a way north-east from there.


    Although there are mountains in the way, I suppose.



    Ludlow might be a more central option, though. Ludlow is nice.

  • RT @justindeaville: @MartinSLewis I looked it up when we last went. It's ball speed. And it's about O.3 seconds to cross the court. @Martin?

  • Amazing how empty the #Wimbledon court is for the mixed doubles even though there's a Brit playing. The bars outside are rammed though

  • RT @BimpeIN: @MartinSLewis According to Quora its "the speed of the ball as getting out of the racket. As soon as the ball starts to fly it?
