Zidane, Larry David, and Tipping

So Michael Schumacher has announced his retirement from racing. Well it will give someone else a chance, only way Jenson Button can get points is by speeding on the motorway. So theyll be none of this whens he stepping down malarkey that has ghosted Tony Blairs leadership.

When you think that the car is a very important factor, how much credit can you give the driver though really. The machine is useless without a man, and a man is useless without the machine. Though apparently you do need to be fit to drive these super fast cars, especially in the neck muscles. Zinedine Zidanes new career maybe?

Another favourite TV programme is Curb Your Enthusiasm starring Larry David as himself, each episode a masterpiece in comedy storytelling and timing. A must watch. Am I the only one who watches this? I share Larrys reluctance in tipping, in the UK its not required by law, but it is expected. Even if I get exceptional service, I don't want to tip, theres just too many people willing to take your money and we give it over with a smile. I'm like I earned that, that's 30 mins work for me and all you really did was ask if my food was okay. Do you tip?

So whats going on with Blair and Brown, Blairs announced he will stand down within a year, this is a far cry form Arnold Szwarzeneggers rally cry of, four more years!, at the last election. Maybe there should be a pop idol style face off between Brown and Blair for the publics vote, don't think viewers would be that enthralled. Dour Brown or Smarmy Blair, great choice! The doors wide open at No.10 for Conservative David Cameron, and the revolving doors with Blairs ministers leaving are spinning around wildly.
