My interweb speed jumping from an average of 270 up to a whopping 1050 after I had a nice chat with a very helpful French dude, chez Orange.

I did nothing, it just jumped up last night and stays there..................fingers crossed, fingers crossed......... :-D That will probably hex it now.....

Now when my new Mac arrives on tuesday...............bliss.

The sound of the little boy racer that comes through my village every night with a bucket for an exhaust on his Citroen saxo, hitting the embankment on the sharp bend.
Then the sound of him shouting "oh man look at my wheels, look at my wheels"

He he you dub step marinated, shell suit clad little muppet.

Thread dredge cos we all need a bit more fucking positivity!

My pup is a year old now so when he tows me on my skateboard he pulls like a pack dog - fast as fuck. Flying along getting towed by him and seeing the look on peoples faces in London as some grey haired old git flys past them at 15 mph on a skateboard towed by a smiling dog is beautiful. :lol: :-D

Maybe the successor of the Husky - better temperament but still got pulling power?

An amazing day ski touring in Cairgorms. Epic day out, 4 1/2 gully lines ticked.

When tide, swell and wind finally combine after a winter of waiting for a quiet stretch of reefs to wake up, and when you surf it with your best mate and a seal with no one else in sight. Oh, and when he goes first while you're still on the jump off rock, and you see it go completely dry in front of him!

Bees are such a pleasant sight in spring.

Coincidentally I've just had some of my photos put in a publication on bees which although done for free gives me a bit of a lift.

Knowing that the last shake of winter's tail means I might get one last ski in for the year this weekend. Snow forecast for the mountains every day this week.
