I'm told that fibre speeds will double from tomorrow until the end of May

Today, I also received an amazing offer from myheritage.com.  They are providing an unlimited photograph colourising service to turn old monochrome pictures into colour.  I have already done 20. 

Here is a photo that dates from 1888.  A good sharp image at the time, it now looks wonderful.   This old guy was born in 1819 and died in 1898.  He is standing in front of a house he built

Grandpa Clarke?


-F_D

Great-grandpa

He had 9 kids, all boys (The Victorians were busy guys) and operated a house-building business.  He only employed Irish labourers and artisans.   Didn't want any WOGS from France or other places.  I have his gold pocket watch. 

According to a handed down tale, he was given this by a grateful customer but when he discovered it was made by a German watchmaker, Wilhelm Schultz, took it off and put it in a drawer

Say what? Blank picture frame, blue background with a red "X" through half of it means what exactly?

For some odd reason, I am longing to go out, I have been in the house for 7 days straight!

I guess I 'll go into the workshop later today (after work) to burn this "unwanted" energy!!!

Helicopters overhead makes it feel like something out of Terminator! Could be worse I suppose, I could be on a cruise!

Apparently they are trying to get hold of people who went on the last two cruises on MSC (the infamous one which should not have been allowed to even board and the one before - source was Dept  of Health on Twitter) as they are contacts.  So thatís the curve knackered.

Reason to stay indoor! Fight that urge.
