[Australia! Dave's meanderings around Devon, Somerset, and Dorset are much easier to get!
I've promised myself a visit to Ivybridge Town but only when the new facilities are in place!
I shall be there tomorrow for what looks like an attractive game against Liskeard Athletic, and expecting goals as Ivybridge have started the season with two away games with a total goals count of fourteen! 4-3 win at Falmouth Town followed by a 4-3 defeat at Plymouth Parkway.
Number two is Exmouth who were all set for the Western League this season until they failed a ground grading.
I went to the FA Cup game between Tiverton Town and Plymouth Parkway yesterday but thought Ladysmead would be too easy a picture. 1-0 to Tivvy in a good tight game. My first FA Cup game of the season. I somehow managed a dozen last season across ten successive rounds. Maybe I shouldn't admit to this. I blame the Sheffield clubs for prolonging the sequence.
The sooner the BBC is privatised the better ! Other than compulsorily making us finance it's output of politically correct clap trap, I can't guess why it should still exist.
I, like many others I expect ,stupidly relied on the BBC to provide me with accurate scorelines from yesterdays football matches, and so have gone the best part of 24 hours under the assumption that Tiverton had been knocked out of the F.A Cup. Barton, as an eye witness to the match, now informs me that is not the case.
And here we are on Sunday afternoon, yet the BBC Sports Dept are probably en masse attending a Gay rights rally rather than correcting the mistakes of yesterday.
The Terror alert level may have been raised to severe, but I'd willingly give a Jihadist directions to Salford.
Barton's glad tidings mean that a big name could still be visiting Ladysmead in the Cup later this season. I believe that it will be 20 years this November since the famous Tiverton Town v Leyton Orient F.A clash that featured the collapsing perimeter wall.
Alpine Joe may like to know that Comrade Felix was also under the impression that Tiverton Town had lost yesterday. That leads me to the conclusion that, although you are far apart on the political spectrum, you are both reliant on the same news source for much of your information. BBC Sport, I hasten to add, as opposed to Mail Online (even though I believe that media channel may be employing some very talented young journalists these days; one of whom may have been a contributor to this site in the past).
Alpine Joe, for his part, draws my admiration in how he has been able to use this thread to continue his attacks on what he perceives to be the BBC's political correctness. I actually consider this to be a misplaced criticism and hope that, in the spirit of multi-culturalism (I can hear AJ choking as I type the expression), the BBC will provide suitable enthusiastic coverage of today's FA Cup match between FC Romania and Heybridge Swifts.
Yes, unfortunately, the beeb haven't updated the conference table, perhaps misleading Register into thinking that Nuneaton are still in the relegation zone when their fine win at home to Altrincham propelled them significantly upwards. Unbelievable, a win for us in the sixth games failed to improve our lower middle position although like a long distance runner we are now hugging the chasing Pack and a bit more impetus should see us rapidly improve our position!
The first to present his case seems right, till another comes forward and questions him.

Alpine Joe and Felix weren't the only disappointed BBC viewers yesterday. Lincoln City fans forums reveal some scepticism about the 'stats' reported by the state's broadcaster from yesterday's game. Our "shots on goal" stats appear to have been grossly over-estimated apparently.
I'm sure it's tough for Alpine, persecuted as he no doubt is by the BBC, and I do have some sympathy for his position. I think it was Felix who once pointed out that most of the prominent names at the BBC were privately/Oxbridge educated white men, just as they are at every liberal's newspaper of choice, the Guardian.
It must grate when Joe tunes into Newsnight after a hard day's graft to see this venerable show presented by Evan Davis (Davis being homosexual). Perhaps he should give Davis a second chance however. If he pops over to Amazon, Joe will be able to search for and purchase Mr Davis' 1998 book, Public Spending. In this book Davis offers us a startling solution to nation's economic ills - privatise everything. True, market forces have not been kind to Davis' magnum opus (currently for sale at £0.01), but if nothing else it will offer Joe an opportunity to take a break from the doubtless laborious task of cataloging his collection of Orange Order members photographed holidaying on the North Devon coast
Have been away for the weekend (no, not to Lincoln) so come late to this quiz. Can't match Keyberry's knowledge but confirm that 3 is Exwick (I have an intimate knowledge of the properties in the background!) and 4 is St Martin's in Exminster where my son broke his leg aged 14. By a strange coincidence that was against Stoke Gabriel which is where I have just spent the weekend!
