OK, so I've been playing down these price rises, brushing them off with comments like: "There's no use moaning; you've got to have it, so you've got to pay for it." This lunchtime, it hit me personally! A pound, A POUND! I can't believe they've stuck a pound on the larger I've taken a shine to!

Marmite peanuts are WAAAY too addictive!

This is really bad. I'm eating wine gums at work!

I've just eaten the most insanely sized corned beef salad torpedo sandwich. Even I'm surprised I ate it all! Never mind "Foot Long" I think this was a European Metre long!

I have gone insane and bought my lunch from Marks & Spencer today.
ÂŁ5.75 for a packet of crisps, a ploughman's sandwich and some prawn and chilli bean crush thing

Don't go home when you finish work. Go to your local polling station and vote! I don't care who you vote for. I couldn't give a toss if you're one of those.
"Get the Tories out!"
"Keep Labour out!"
"Don't let the Liberals in!"
"Greens, who are they?"

𝗜 𝘃𝗼𝘁𝗲𝗱 𝘁𝗼𝗱𝗮𝘆, 𝗵𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂?

Don't let others influence you.
Don't let others bully you.
Don't fall for the lies that this is about Government; IT'S NOT!

Vote for who you think cares about where you live, not who runs the country.
So tempted to buy this. I'm surrounded by sheep.

Went crazy and spent ÂŁ2 on a mint plant for minted new potatoes. Fresh does smell nice, though.

The guy upstairs is almost continually coughing his guts out and the guy in the workshop is coughing his guts out! Are these swine trying to make us ill?

So while I agree it's good to see all these Twitter users coming over to Mastodon and the Fediverse, I am slightly saddened that they are doing it because they feel they have no choice rather than making a conscious decision to embrace freedom. Still "Every cloud...." and all that. #

Seeing LOTS of people reactivate their Fediverse (Mastodon, Frendica, PLeroma) accounts last night and this morning, maybe even one or two will migrate to #? Not sure why everyone is jumping ship. TBH, Twitter already has your personal profile and preferences, and so what if he invites Trump et al. back? There are already more dangerous freaks on Twitter anyway!

Great! I place my order with @argon_forty for their EON NAS Drive enclosure and then two days later PiHut lists it. # #
Still, I think there's only a three or four quid difference.

Oh, God. Boris needs my help again!

If only I had a podcast?
This is an interesting story
I'm sure something is missing from this report though? While ValueLicensing is missing out on potentially buying old licences to resell, I would have thought it was more beneficial for customers to surrender those licenses in return for a discount on M365? Indeed, eventually, ValueLicensing will run out of licenses to sell anyway? Maybe that's why they're suing?

If only Mandrake Linux could be resurrected. Personally, I think they lost their way when it morphed into Mandriva.

I have eaten four, yes 𝗙𝗢𝗨𝗥 Eccles cakes! That should translate into three stone by tomorrow. :-O

So my QNAP TS-251B is fixed. Not quite sure how tbh. I read a write-up that walked you through a reset but advised that it would wipe the drives. Luckily, I could still access the NAS from the cloud so downloaded all the important stuff. anyway, I bit the bullet and pressed reset and the voice said "Advanced Reset started" after a reboot, the NAS was back and so was my content \o/
Had to re-implement my personal configuration such as fixed IP etc but well chuffed it didn't wipe the drives.

Guess whose grandson has come to visit #

If only I had a moped.
If only it was 1964
If only Brighton beach wasn't so bloody cold this time of year.

𝗕𝗿𝗲𝗮𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗡𝗲𝘄𝘀: There are only 37 Mondays left until Christmas!

Huzzah for Thinkpad!

Never mind all these schemes for loft and cavity wall installation most of which are a scam anyway. The government should pay for every house in the UK to have solar panels fitted and make it law that new builds must have solar panel roofs. They never will because the energy industry will resist it as it will eat into their profits.

Wondering how many contractors are queuing up for rebuilding contracts in Ukraine?

Emily Davison didn't chuck herself under a horse so that you lazy feckers could sit on your arse and say: "What's the point of voting?" Get it sorted! Go and vote! You can spare 5 minutes of your day.

Local elections in the United Kingdom will be held on 5 May 2022

Took Charlie to the park this morning. Fairly cold, -1C but enjoyed meeting the fellow dog walkers until we were nearly on our way out of the park and a woman I've not seen for a while said: "Have you retired now?"

Do I look that old?

I might start quoting in Guineas.

Friday night, I fancied a beer. "I know; I have a bottle sitting in the cupboard." I poured out the "Old speckled dog bollock", or whatever it was called and then thought: "Hmm? It's been there a while?" Too right! "Best before Jan 2020!" I bet I bought it in 2018.

Saturday night: I'll have me a Margarita. "Best before Feb 2021"
Thank The Pond Gods my Bushmills is OK.

I am on to a winner today. I definitely know the wife is at the hairdresser's; therefore, for once, as a man, know to walk in the door and say: "Ooh, your hair looks nice." which means brownie points for me unless she hates her hair and then I'm deep in the doggy doo doo. 😟

And to think I was dead jealous of anyone that owned an HTC.

Always in the top four, I've finally found a home where I'm appreciated. # #

One of the guys has just had his new Samsung S22 delivered and it's PINK!
"But it says Red!"
It's Pink :-D
I have very dry lips today for some reason?

FFS! It sounds like a mule eating pellets out of a nose bag. What are you eating?

Is there some sort of by-law that says shops in retail parks cannot open until mid-morning on a Saturday!? If you don't want to push people online, I suggest retailers open at 9 am, oh, and Currys PC World; I recommend you get rid of the Brand Name assistants who can only help you with their brand.
