    Morning, SG keep rebellious thoughts to yourself. Just because it's warm at your end there is no need to rub it in, anyway it's getting warmer. Slowly. Back to work today for a few days. Enjoy.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Hybrid commute and later is finish mowing the lawns - such excitement
  • sungodsungod Posts: 12,215
    it could still be warmer here, bit nippy first thing, not sure there's any to spare

    sky behind the volcanoes is lightening, another 30 mins or so should be about right for start

    Sun blaring through the velux. Cold though. Not sure what to wear.

    Morning
    Nice and sunny, although the missus had to defrost her windscreen this morning. Yesterday’s physio went well, still progressing slowly. Which is more than can be said for the car, first time I drive it in 7 weeks and it breaks.
    So today will be a walk followed by a limp like drive to the garage.

    Morning

    Like webbo, clear blue skies, chilly, scraping frost off the cars this morning.
    Now I've survived the cycle from the car to the office, it's gone pretty dull and cloudy.

    Club TT later, won't be any PBs from me.

    Morning folks,
    Chilly out there this morning, lovely and sunny but frosty. Had to drive in as I need to collect the Mrs and a load of boxes from her work later. Had ice on the windscreen of the car which caused great hardship as I pushed the heated screen button and waited a few seconds whilst putting my sunglasses on. Tomorrow more driving as I have to MOT the Mini, but Thursday I will ride.
    I appear to have bought another bicycle, whoops. Seemed cheap for what it was though and I can pinch some of the bits off it for the Chesini. Mirage bits on it and Record hubs with Mavic GP4 rims (never had tubs before) but shifters are Shimano unfortunately.

    Sternly worded letter to my MP should suffice.

    No frost just cold an bright here. Drove in again as apparently I have deliveries though I very much doubt that.

    V68, I do like that bike shame its a bit of a mish mash though.

    is it just me or does George Ezrah's (sic) "Paradise" that local radio djs are raving about sound like a poor man's cover version of something that Right Said Fred would have done 25 years ago?

    I gave up on the radio a long time ago, all to much censored an shouting for my liking. Radio 2 is about my limit an that goes off most of the time in favour of spotify.

    Has Xfm rebranded? Used to listen to that a few years back. Don't get to listen to the radio much, but if I do it's 6 Music.

    Brexit of course. We're not allowed to access continental weather any more.

    Good pedal in due to aforementioned weather. Now stuffing my face to make up the calorie deficit. I suppose I should check my bank account sometime to see if they've paid me the extra I was promised after their balls up on the new job front.

    Seems the local council missed some potholes, I found some other images on the web, not at all pretty

    Knowing the stretch of road I'm not surprised to be honest that ends in a terrible state an its actually worse further along going toward Mursley.

    I discovered Absolute last weekend - its really good.

    I have to internet stream it here and every 5 mins or so it goes silent for about 10 seconds - is this the Russians listening in or something else? Does anyone know how I can stop it?

    Move out of the third world and to a civilised country where you can pick it up on fm or have better internet speeds. Assuming you're in Wales at the moment.

    maybe not a dedicated internet link that you have, and/or the software you are using isn't designed to build/manage a decent buffer

    try different software, if that fails kill everyone else using your internet, not necessary to do it in that order
