    Hi all

    I know your wife, Neville. She's a very talented lady - but I didn't know she could connect to the internet as well......... :thumb: :thumb: :D:D:D That apart, welcome Dee63 and family. It's a very 'interesting' time to start full timing, lots and lots of changes but I'm sure you'll love the...

    It's Still a Bl**dy Shambles...........

    ........ at the moment, who does?:sick::D:D I see that from tomorrow (Saturday) they will be joining the exclusive and much reviled UK quarantine list, along with Malta and Holland. It seems we are trying quite hard to alienate every country in the EU, instead of cold shouldering the ones we...

    It's Still a Bl**dy Shambles...........

    Excellent post. Very clear and well written, Eric. You're right, a lot of folk don't/didn't - grasp all the implications and I think a lot of the reason for that is it hasn't really been well publicised. Maybe too, this aspect of leaving the EU has a much greater impact on our community, so...

    It's Still a Bl**dy Shambles...........

    Yes, it is and making plans has gone on our back burner. I've a strong suspicion that Boris et al are busy backpedaling on quite a few major issues, keeping it as quiet as they possibly can - then pretty much aiming to present us with the same thing as Theresa May had, dresses in different...

    MiFi and Internet

    I'd suggest that currently it's anyone's guess. The only (possibly erroneous) hint I got was from GiffGaff, when they sent out text messages to quite a few folk a year or so ago (first attempt at Brexit) that hinted at 2 weeks roaming then a greatly hiked rate for calls and texts. Internet...

    MiFi and Internet

    Dohh! Sorry, just re -read you post. Europe included, going to anywhere else in the world (eg Aus?) for an additional £6 per day?

    MiFi and Internet

    Ta. No need to check the bills - but is it £180 per month if you're touring in Europe? Three has some good deals - but no service worth the name in this area. We have one of their SIMS as a standby for Europe. Vodafone and O2 are good here. EE (Everything Everywhere? Pah!) are the worst of...

    MiFi and Internet

    A couple of questions, Chris: Does it work OK in Europe and have you tried it for more than 60 days? Do you know roughly how much data do you get through each month? I assume it's a tad more than our £32/month :eek:- but we don't stream films/TV/whatever.

    MiFi and Internet

    I'd guess most folk have already solved their particular problem but we put the 60 day roaming issue to the test with a Sky phone SIM, a MiFi and a 12 month contract. In a round about way we asked what the roaming time limit was. The answer, much to our surprise, was that there wasn't one! We...

    Ah! Now I'm with you. I'll put it down to tiredness................. :snooze:

    Made it!! Back at the Home Depot. 6 hour slog northward overnight, very, very little traffic, even on the M25. Tired to poach a slot at Newhaven but it was full of everything but motorhomes. The bit where we last parked up waiting for a ferry was full of trucks and cars. Stopped at one...

    Oh, I remember the song alright, Alan. I'm easily old enough. :) It was a choice between him, Sheb Wooley?. and Russ Conway for the first record I ever bought. Russ Conway won. Will

    Nah, Alan! The big male Haggii usually scare them off long before humans get a sighting. It's the breeding season and they're quite territorial about now. :rofl: Now 10 miles south of Dieppe, hiding in a bit of shade in a layby. 32C and a hot, dry wind. Back to Spanish mode, with a wet...

    It's Still a Bl**dy Shambles...........

    The local saying was that 'The midgies were so bl**dy thick in the air you could lean on them' I think you may just be in the process of learning that bit of folklore :D From personal experience: Don't expect any relief in Skye. Add to that, if the sun comes out, so will the horse flies - and...
