    Ey oop lad^_^

    I was plodding up a hill today then enjoying the crest as I got ready to swing downhill and I saw a badger running in front across the single track road into some undergrowth, I stopped, got the camera phone out but it didn't appear again and I didn't want to try flush it out in case it took exception, damn, missed it but what an impressive creature up close, I have watched them through binocs before but never been so close to one..made my day.
    Good to get out and about, a bit hot out of the wind, just my usual effort said Strava:ohmy:
    Enjoying Le Tour:okay:

    There’s been 2 of them roadkill on the road between Dunning and Auchterarder.

    Haven’t got into the cycling this year. More tennis for me.

    No sudden burst of speed when sighting the badger?

    There's no freewheeling in tennis though.

    Lol. I mean watching, not riding, although haven't been doing that much of that either.

    You'll not be thinking of taking up tennis then?

    Lots of roadkill today, a few grey squirrels and a crow or two.
    I could smell the remains of a deer roadkill I passed the other week, I guess someone tossed it in a ditch..
    Tennis is 'king' downstairs with the women in the house..
    the 'grunting' puts me off.
    I even catch up each morning with the extra daily episode produced by The Cycling Podcast during Le Tour,..
    After hauling this fat erse up a climb?
    Oh, EE finally came through..
    since BT took them over you get less leeway....
    but I'm happy.

    EE has been a BT company since T-mobile changed it's name.

    It was a Carphone Warehouse company, which went bust. Liquidators were in Rochdale.

    I'd be happy if they'd get their act together, and realise we are still paying customers.

    I find anyone I deal with okay,
    there are just not the 'wee extras' you used to get if you negotiate...
    they have been local since the 'One to One' days..
    another company now doing special deals to specific users....

    One-to-One were the first choice a week before BTCellnet went bust. No signal meant I went to Orange. Now it's EE, and the signal is next to non-existant.

    Upgrade and it'll fix everything, like magic.

    Signal here is excellent, when I move not so good..
    5G is a crock of ****
    4G is bad enough...and I suspect some one is telling porkies about the coverage

    The red dots should be really close together for outdoor internet coverage and the app needs only the basic internet signal to send a packet , like at Kilmacolm, they are a a shower of chanty wrasslers.
