First snow of the year

A day with a difference, woken at midnight by my BT modem flashing away, thought they might have done it during the day, but no. The Virgin Media engineers arrived at 9am, nice sunny cold weather, took them 2 1/2 hours to complete the job and everything went well. Really pleased with the broadband speed 90mps and the TV package is brilliant, glad I got the package now.

Just as the lads were finishing the install, the weather changed a bit

Lightning Association Website

Was chatting to one of the members of the Association the other day and he hinted that he had a mate who is involved in helping out on the Binbrook Lightning restoration who would like to revamp the website. After getting agreement with the Association, it was agreed that Craig Wise would take over as from now. Will look forward to the site revamp and am sure it will grow in popularity when completed. Now down to only 4 websites to look after.

Virgin media

Not long now till my Virgin media Broadband and TV package gets installed. Thursday 30th November. Now thinking of where they intend running the fibre cables from outside my property to the house. If all goes to plan, there should not be a broadband outage as my BT broadband is due to be cancelled the same day.

Twilight Double scramble

Excellent day out at Bruntingthorpe, was on starter crew for XS904 with my pals Martin Forster and Pete O'Callaghan, so an all ex 5 squadron crew. The event was well attended with over 400 photographers. Looking at the Facebook page and images, it looks like they certainly got their money's worth.
