Today’s blog entry is provided by Sirius with pao’s assistance – mainly due to Sirius sleeping on the job. Sirius decided that the wireless signal round the house was simply unacceptable as he was unable to get onto the net to check his email from the back backroom or the conservatory since I had relocated [...]
We had some bad news about our car and are currently carless for around a week. The main computer in the car was fried so has to be sent off to be replaced and re calibrated for our car. We are taking buses which although are very green are not very time friendly. We missed [...]
