LolFest X – Thunderstorms & Buses

28/06/2022 Leave a comment

So you have an app for the buses which shows you if they are running late. What it doesn’t do is show you if they are cancelled. I just shows you that they are running on time and they just never arrive.  Public transport isn’t really for the Public. Prepping in The Malcolm for the first LolFfest since December 2019.  In the meantime Storm Dennis flooded the brewery and The Rhonda shut it down.

Anyway it rained, it Thundered and it Lightninged. Three UK had installed 5G locally and I arrived 30 minutes early. However I was able to bag my favourite seat in the corner. At least until the live music started. The Beers were great and I also came away with a hoodie. Apparently there’s another LolFfest in August. Good times.

Garden – June 2022

It’s been very Great British Summer since the last update. Very hot then showers and cold. I still think that the season is two weekends behind, if not longer. The first of the Potatoes (Casablanca) are dying back, so are ready and I will be raising them soon. The Lemon Basil looked ready and then immediately went to seed, these are the things that happen to me. With the third pack of seeds, the Salad Leaves are now off. Lots of strawberries and the lawn is OK if not spectacular. The Summer Onions are coming on a treat and should be ready this time next month.

Lots of early morning things. The joys of remote Beanoing. Moving my iPad Pro SIM from Three to Smarty. Replacing my Chromebook which had gone End of Life.  The last full day. Bacon Rolls are back in Costa. Petrol pushing £2.00 a litre in some parts of the UK, is this Beano limiting. It certainly looks like it. All Cask Ale in The Regal whilst listening to MacBreak Weekly. The Pelican’s WiFi is down and it’s not even raining. Luckily Mike is on hand with the backup WiFi. Belgian Ales from Scotland and Stockport whilst outside Cloudbursts.  And there you go, it just went.

Skateboarding and Cloudbursts

The last day of #mb08, in fact the last full day of the combined Beano. Blowy out but dry and Costa has Bacon Rolls back.  A wander over to the Skateboard Park, which it isn’t and Fine Ales in The Regal from 08:00. All £2.19 a Pint.  Internet issues in the Pelican but he Can Cooler is fully functional. Meanwhile, outside Cloudbursts.

So the WiFi worked with the MacBook Pro this morning. A few, WiFi issues with the Dell but it was soon up and working. Put June’s security patch on the Pixel 3a and listened to the political updates on Boris’s No Confidence win. Learned that Dark Sky and it’s API will be gone by the end of the and March 2023. A misty world out of the window. Priced the MBA M2, expensive for mySKU. Lack of Bacon Rolls and Staff in Costa Coffee, no free drinks today. Video recording, posting and Cask Ales in The Lord High Constable Of England.  Went to The Pelican, it is my Number One Pub. 

Misty Pricing Up

Flaming June? Where did all this mist come from? Staffing issues in Costa Coffee and no Bacon Rolls. However, I coped. A quiet morning in The Lord High Constable Of England. Recording videos and drinking Cask Ale. Moving on to The Pelican, what a wonderful Pub it is. Tesco for tea.

Me with a Prelude and Postlude to Apple’s WWDC 2022. Recorded in The Lord High Constable of England, Gloucester. TLDR is was excellent.
