Re: Virtual BAM ... you know you want to

Looks like we have A Thing. Next step is to choose our "platform". Google Hangouts seems to work for My Very Active Girlfriend, but you can only have 10 on a video conference. If this takes off, that may not be quite enough. Or do we need video? Will just voice do? Zoom seems to be the platform tha...

Re: If we close up for a bit...

Wise words in a subscription blog-email yesterday, I am working on slowing the rhythms of my life down, perhaps like a hibernating animal slows its heart-beat. I feel like now’s the time for life-advice from people who spend years living on space-stations or alone in arctic weather outposts. Ooooo,...

Re: Todays ride

Used one of my usual local loops for this mornings ride . Most bridleways and byways are now dry, although there are a few sectors that are still claggy, or have puddles. The main issue is that most have been churned up by horses and/or tractors, so some sort of suspension would've been nice. Seriou...

Re: What you done to make a little difference today!?

booked for my 2nd platelet donation, just got to go into Birmingham centre to do it. Not really a virus related thing, but donations are drying up and demand isn't.... 👍 All I ever wanted to do was donate platelets, but I didn't get on with the anti-coagulant. It all went wrong on about my sixth pl...
