JK and JJ,
The golf clubs await you.
And the telebox soaps.
In other words, boredom.
Keep pedalling I say.

Zero, zero , zero on that one.
However as I told you before, I have to concede I seem to have the tired bit on board.

Well I retired, when I joined TC. No more 16 -18 hour days, every weekend off, sleep in my own bed (which stays in one place!), no vibration, no middle of the night phone calls (CHEEF!! IT's F*******) they give me days off they call "holidays" and I get paid for them! When I get sick, I get paid time off, not fired! Beats the hell outa working!

Not to mention the Fat Government Pension when you go, you don't get company pensions any more if you go to Sea.
