United Kingdom
I'm an amateur photographer and travel diarist who now sadly does most of his adventuring from his desktop computer.
My current obsessions are browsing DA for fantastic artwork, scanning the remains of my film negative collection (1982-84 still to do), image manipulation and transferring my 1990 and 1992 travel diaries from handwritten notebooks to Word documents.
Examples of all of these, along with those film negatives already scanned and my digital photography are being submitted here as and when time allows.

2018 World Cup - Rules and Regulations
BASICS
32 competing countries are divided into 8 groups of 4
Each country has a squad of 23 players
Positions are based on the final squads as published on the FIFA.com website
3 must be goalkeepers, the rest can be from any outfield position
The number of declared outfield players per country varies from 6 to 10 defenders, 4 to 11 midfielders, and 2 to 8 forwards
Each group is divided into Top 2 and Bottom 2 countries based on my weighted averages of their combined current FIFA world rankings (30%) and Elo ratings (70%)
PLAYER ALLOCATION
Each deviant will be randomly allocated a squad of 22 players - 2 GK, 8 DEF, 8 MID, 4 FOR - equally divided from amongst the Top 16 and Bottom 16 countries
Each deviant will have their quota of players from each positional group allocated randomly (by the miracle of the Excel RANDBETWEEN function!); there will therefore be duplication of players in some squads, whilst some players will remain unallocated
The chances of 2 deviants having exactly the same squad of 22 players are about as remote as my winning £100m on the EuroMillions (must check my Friday night ticket!) and being elected as the next Pope on the same day!
Any unallocated players left in the tournament at the start of the knockout phase will be randomly allocated amongst the deviants; more details to follow after group stage ends on 28th June
SCORING
Group Stages:
GK keeps clean sheet scores 5pts, DEF keeps clean sheet scores 2pts
To score points for a clean sheet the player must have played in the match, either from the start or as a substitute
Any player scores own goal loses 3pts
Any player who scores a goal scores points based on their designated position - GK 16pts, DEF 12pts, MID 8pts, FOR 4pts Knockout Stages:
GK keeps clean sheet scores 10pts, DEF keeps clean sheet scores 4pts
To score points for a clean sheet the player must have played in the match, either from the start or as a substitute
Any player scores own goal loses 6pts
Any player who scores a goal scores points based on their designated position - GK 32pts, DEF 24pts, MID 16pts, FOR 8pts
Clean sheets and goals scored will be decided at the end of normal time or, if applicable, extra time
Goals scored or penalties conceded in penalty shoot-outs will not count
In case of dubious goals the goalscorer is deemed to be as published on the FIFA.com website the following day Unallocated players added to squads at the end of the group stages will only score points from the knockout phase
THE JUDGE'S (MINE) DECISION IS FINAL
The champion will be the deviant whose squad has scored the most points after the final is concluded on 15th July
In the event of a tie a count-back system will operate with these priorities: Which entrant has the highest points-scoring FOR in their squad; if still tied then then MID, then DEF, then GK
In the unlikely event that scores are still level then the championship will be decided on the toss of a coin

You too! I envy you. Visited Russia in 1987 as the Soviet era was coming to its end and really loved it. Love Russia now too - one of the countries that is standing up to the globalist elite. The way the western media portrays them is just comical and I'm so glad the football team are doing well. Can't see them winning it but I hope they go a long way. Nice photo of the Spassky Tower; shame it's small resolution. Hope you have a great time there.

Hi Teos, you're welcome! Thanks also for the watch, which of course is just in time to qualify you for entry into my 2018 World Cup competition - see my status updates for details. Let's hope you have more success than I fear your home nation will have!
I confess that your style of art is not one that greatly appeals to me, but I will have a look through your gallery and return the honour of your watch that your support for mine deserves.

We could go on like this for ever! So let's call a truce now and say that it was both our pleasures. :D (Big Grin)
Of course, as a woman, it's your prerogative to have the last word, so if you decide to reply back again I promise not to respond further!
