Over the next week and a bit we will be seeing some dramatic events surely. At this stage last season Man U were lucky to escape from Rome with an away goal, but a week later totally ripped a new hole into AS bit of Roma. Milan were also knocking out Bayern Munich. Can it be a coincedence that Barcelona play a German team? and could have 3 English teams in the SF, similar to Milan... maybe so, maybe not... on barca's form, they must watch out for Schalke though, not as easy as they may expect.

In any case this years QFs should be a good watch. Probably most intriguing is Roma - Man Utd... but certainly the All english clash is being hyped up, particularly on these shores.

I am betting on 4 draws for the first games. lets see.

Owls have an advantage over their prey and other birds of prey, in that evolution has designed their wings to be soundless.

OK, I guess this is overdoing it. :D

Schalke 0 Barcelona 2
Roma 1 Man Utd 1

No, mammals. :D

We get occasional glimpses of bats as we live in the vicinity of wetlands.

Oh and I've mentioned it recently, but in case you missed it - bats echolocate [ultrasonic squeaks], they don't see as we do, I believe echolocation creates and effect in which the animal gets a feel of what's within view, the edges.

Schalke can do damage to Barca, although I wonder if they'll have the balls to convert their chances. I wonder if they truly believe, is there a true conviction within the group that they can defeat all those big names, the players, the club.

yeah, bats are amazing, you can stand in a room full of them and they won't touch you, though I haven't tested this theory for myself yet as I don't have a room full of bats in my gaff.

It's a good thing they don't, their wings are brittle and would easily break on contact.

They've been described as mice with wings, which kind of creeps me out. Although, mice don't bother me so much as rats, of the wild kind, which make me shudder violently, how repulsive they are!

Deano, what's your job? :D Nah you don't have to respond, I respect your privacy, more than being inquisitive, I'm amusing myself.

We had a problem once at a betting outlet. I forget what sport/event/match it was on, but we stepped up to the counter and said something along the lines of "we'd like to place a bet on this". However, the person working the counter drew a blank and later we realised that when we are to make a bet, we should just put forth a number which they'll enter into a computer, our bet showing itself on the monitor to them.

the problem I have is picking the winner of the race, so many to choose from.
