Having never posted to The Earl before, YHC made his inaugural post and Q at The Earl today. And it took only a drive around the round about to know what was on the menu for today. T-claps to Bunyan, Ito, and Yanni for starting this AO. Great site, lots to play with, and very […]

Bucket Of Fortune

Posted on

‘Are you Vanna or Pat?’, Bunyan asks the host of The Earl’s morning game show, Bucket Of Fortune. It’s simply a rip off of the TV show with a few minor tweaks. Pick a tennis ball from the bucket that has an exercise and amount on it, choose a letter, if wrong PAX completes the […]

“Where’s the 6?”

Posted on

  The Earl is fun, odd, busy and exciting all mixed into one.  There is something surreal working out F3 style whilst the regular world carries on around you.  Traffic, heavy goods vehicles and folks wrapped up tight to protect from the brutal cold all gawk and wonder “what the F&%?” I suppose I’ve become […]
