Sun: Only 3 sunspots. For the 6th day in a row, solar activity remains very low. No sunspots are flaring, and the sun's X-ray output has flatlined. NOAA forecasters estimate a scant 1% chance of significant solar flares on Feb. 18th.
 
We (Stoke City) lost to Blackburn 4 – 1 in the Cup and had a man sent off. So we lost 4 – 1 twice in one week!! And the injuries are piling up. This weekend we have Aston Villa away and they have a new manager.
