I haven’t blogged for a while.
This has partly been because I have been too busy with other work stuff but mainly because website upkeep doesn’t come naturally to me. However, I will try to blog more now that my Wife, Sue, has taken over the running of the site and has put up a new page of Projects to show what we have been working on.
But today we have been at a repair cafe, one of three that we regularly attend now. This time I repaired a power supply wire for a phone music dock, and a 45 year old transistor radio. I wasn’t able to repair the fancy steam iron as the heating element in the steam pressure tank had failed but the client will contact the manufacturer regarding spares or repair service as a last resort.
Also today I am attempting to write this blog while sitting in a cafe in Chorlton having lunch. I am writing it on a Planet Computers Gemini PDA, the modern replacement for my long dead, and much loved Psion 5 Organiser.
This will explain the lack of photos, formatting, and hyperlinks. I will work all that out another day.
Now, another cuppa tea is needed….

…Yoast SEO and all the ways to improve the searchability of my business website when, to be honest, I don’t want ‘everyone’ to find it! Continue reading “Funny learning about…”
…is a ‘thing’. Or at least I hope to make it so.
The idea is that if you see something in your community that could do with a simple fix then you fix it. Continue reading “Guerrilla Fixing…”
…day that involved a skip, a mini digger, computer back ups, a big spanner, and a Mapp gas torch I am ready for sleep.
But I can’t sleep yet!
Tonight is gig night at Malaga Drift and we are due to be out until midnight!
