Sun: Blank yet again! 2019 has ending the same way it began--without sunspots. The sun has been blank for 281 days this year. To find a year with more blank suns, you have to go all the way back to 1913 (311 days).
This means we are experiencing a century-class Solar Minimum. Forecasters expect these low sunspot counts to continue in 2020. (spaceweather.com)
Stoke lost 1 – 0 to Fulham. I was there, a draw would have been fairer. But goals win matches. Stupid Stoke fans started fighting amongst themselves
