Chris Woakes gets a well deserved century against India at Lord’s. Woakes now gets his name on the batting and bowling Honours Boards – quite a select few achieve that. Jonny Bairstow unlucky not to get his hundred. A good day’s cricket for England after a faltering start. 🏏

Glamorgan vs Gloucestershire at Sophia Gardens tonight – Glamorgan just win, by 2 runs 🏏

RT @GlamCricket@twitter.com: SUMMARY// Glamorgan win another nail-biting match @SophiaGardens@twitter.com as TVDG holds his nerve to dismiss Tye from the final ball of the game as the Welsh county win by 2 runs

Fantastic team effort with standout performances from Meschede, Smith & Hogan

RT @mrmarksteel@twitter.com: My little column about Corbyn and anti-Semitism. Luckily I can't see anyone taking any of this out of context and getting irrationally cross. independent.co.uk/voices/antis

RT @mrmarksteel@twitter.com: Here's a policy that Corbyn could adopt to swing the polls his way; coffee should come in a cup or a mug, but NOT in a glass. £2,000 on the spot fines for any transgression.

RT @mrmarksteel@twitter.com: In all my days I have never said anything this controversial, but if you can't stand up for what is right, are you truly alive at all? Here we go....... Abba aren't 'fantastic', they're a sodding nuisance.

My library hold came in! The new translation of The Odyssey by Emily Wilson. Here's a NYT piece on it: nytimes.com/2017/11/02/magazin

This is the first English translation by a woman. In our language's 500-year history this is the first time society and academia and economics have aligned just right so that for once a member of the other half (more or less) of the human race got to take a crack at it.
