Morning all, beautiful start to the day. Thunderstorms for later, certainly signs of instability aloft yesterday afternoon, and looking at the West country they are under the cosh rainfall wise at present.

Up to now Ellie has not been particularly destructive, during the night she decided to start eating the house and has destroyed about eight inches of door frame leading into the kitchen.

Morning. A lovely one here.

The weather forecast has led my sister-in-law to cancel a barbie she was due to have tomorrow.

Gotta dash.

Morning all.
Tis unaturally warm and humid here.

The 75 year old wanted to go on a pub crawl of Derby yesterday after the meal. My head hurteth.

I've got both my mobile phone and broadband with EE and have had no problems whatsoever. From the tales of woe on here I now consider myself very lucky.

The trip to the hospital was a bit of a downer.
Kidneys still deteriorating and my consultant wants me to have another kidney biopsy.
I had the last one 20 years ago and apparently they can now get a lot more information from them. It isn't a particularly pleasant experience but very necessary.
He also told me that I was a fat pig and had to lose some of the blubber or it will kill me. He used much different words but I got the message.
On the upside he got me to join up to patientview on which I can view all the results of my blood, urine, ultrasound tests etc that I have from the hospital and GP.
I can add my own blood pressure readings into the data and contact the renal team through it as well. Pretty good tool.

Kippers for breakfast.

Now I have a sim-free robust 'contractor's' phone from ALDI which is fitted with two sims
Now I'm really confused. How can you have a sim-free device with TWO sims? Those two ideas would seem to be mutually exclusive ...

Puzzled of Perth.

Morning all

Very humid with cloud cover here. Had aircon on in car whilst doing delayed airport pick up of Mrs IB last night.This then required windscreen wipers to be deployed due to amount of condensation outside...That's how humid it was and still is! Finally got home just before midnight.

The delay was avoidable. Mrs IB's gold harp airlines plane got to the take off hold, then had to turn back to terminal, as paper work not in order from handling agents. Ejits!

30 years since the Manchester Air Disaster.
A friend of ours daughter was sat in row 3 and thankfully escaped.

Vets breakfast.
Hot dogs, Nigel?

Sim-free = not tied to a particular service provider.
Two slots for sims, therefore two sims - could be different service providers, thus ensuring greater coverage.

Just thinking as one took off one's coat keys change and stuff out of me pocket I must have had this wallet for neigh forty years,still few signs of wear,be good for another forty year, prolly on account of it seldom coming oot me pocket.Keys are the same,but I did lose them about thirty years ago and got this new key ring, origionally it had a real .44 magnum bullet (deactivated) hanging from it, but that dropped off somewhere,they prolly sent for the bomb squad to pick it up out of the gutter.
A man's wallet and keys say a lot about him.

Vets not cheapskates.

2 fried eggs, sausage, bacon, tomatoes, black pudding, I could have had beans as well. 2 slices of toast and a mug of tea 2.
Bury black pudding company donated 10 whole black pudding rolls to our cause on Thursday. Lot of ex Kings Regt. So wouldn't slag us down Ibby.

Finally...went to the EE shop, charming and well mannered young girl served me. Apparently the guy at EE I spoke to at EE emailed the shop saying I didn't need a new SIM. It was activated, only prob was it didn't show my number, now fixed thank goodness.

Around here your mobile is either locked or unlocked.Apparantly unlocked is best..then you can change sims without problem. Spect. It would be a problem for me!
A shame that people are leaving or getting chucked off Trabb, you can't do much about a banning but if you have the choice surely much better to stay and keep contact with friends.
I like being on the fringe of Trabb, I learn interesting things and enjoy the conversation from people..

Gotcha thanks, G-CPTN. That is a terribly misleading expression though as it clearly implies that no sim card is needed. It made me think immediately of my previous CDMA mobile which, of course, had no sim card and which, incidentally, had an entirely flawless performance that no sim-operated mobile phone I've had since then has come even close to matching. The worst thing Telstra ever did was get rid of the CDMA system and foist the current substandard GSM system onto everyone. A pox on them.

I question the logic of excluding folk completely from certain threads rather than restricting contributing if the contributions are considered inappropriate.
As I cannot (legally) access the thread from which I am excluded, I am unable to monitor what might have been the reason for my exclusion, and I cannot see what others are contributing to what is, for me, an interesting thread to read - or, at least, it would be if I could read it.

I can understand being prevented from contributing (or, at least I might if I could see what had been 'said').

Of course the moderator involved could have communicated his displeasure - but that's not how the system works.

At least it is only one thread that I am excluded from (as far as I know).
