After the problems we had this summer our ADSL Infinity line is back to normal :


It’s now 70 Mbit/s down and 20 Mbit/s up, dead stable.

I’ve just applied to buy shares in


[From All Our Beer]

In our family we have a bit of a ritual on a Friday.

When the last of us arrives at Waterloo station and know which train we are on a order goes to our favourite indian curry house for a takeaway.

This in turn leads to being picked up at the station, driving by the takeaway to pick up this :


and life is suddenly very good!

At long last I sat down to fix the AeroGarden – the connectors between the base unit and the top (which powers the circulation pump) are really badly made, and on top of that they corrode. SO I had to fix them one more time – but now it’s all running as it should.


and the first signs of life can just be seen

In a previous blog I mentioned our local food shop – the Godalming Deli. It’s very small – tinny if probably a better word for it, but they have managed to source a very impressive range of local and other stuff, including the beer from the Little Beer Corporation.


I cam across this beer in a local food shop :


It’s from a local nano-brewery in Guildford called “Little beer corporation”. They actually encourage users to become share holders in the company, and have a interesting philosophy,

I will have to look into this after I have tasted the first 2 bottles of beer.

Just had another wonderful BBQ meal – as you can see the steaks and the trout done more or less at the same time:


The temperature was around 300ºC at this stage. with the steaks receiving almost all the direct heat. The trout has been cooking at slightly lower temperature for a while on the lower level.

Btw. this part of the deck is now almost fixed.

We usually do a Indian takeaway every friday from a (fairly) local pub in Godalming, and as today is a Saturday you can quite rightly guess that we had a takeaway last night. But we are going to the same pub tonight with friends.

Their food is always of a very high standard, but it seems to taste even better when you can eat at the pub. Btw. it’s normally quite popular so a booking is advised.


Just down from our house a landowner has applied to ‘

clearing trees from the site which may fall/cause damage’

– as the picture shows this seem to be a bit of a mis-statement. He’s actually removing anything growing there…


There is actually snow/sleet falling outside – it’s cold and miserable.
