Maybe the slowest Ultimate WiFi ever. However Premier Inn all you can eat Breakfast with real Toasters. The Joy of the superior Wetherspoon’s Aircon and their WiFi for that matter. Are there ghosts in the flushing mechanism of the Wetherspoon’s toilet? Or just that the sensor is in the wrong place? Across the road in The Punch House and it’s Beavertown. The Robin Hood was a Pub come pile it high carvery and the Green Dragon was a classic Sky Sports on Sunday go to and it’s only guest ale was DoomBar. Monmouth, you were nice but not really a beer town.

A Gentle Sunday

Step out of the Premier Inn and the cool of the morning is instant relief. Also so is the Aircon in Spoons. An old favourite, Hazy Jane from BrewDog is an excellent start to the day. Across the road in The Punch House and it’s Neck Oil from Beavertown, FTTC too. The Robin Hood, almost a Carvery but the LandLord had seen better days. Where can you get good, not even great LandLord nowadays? Question, does live Football make up for DoomBar being your Guest Ale. These are the questions!

With the new Energy Cap, this is the first of the austere Beanos, only 34 miles from Home. It’s Monmouth. Mist patches on the way up. Really fast WiFi in The Kings Head (Spoons). Luma Fusion, Royalty Free and noted on YouTube. The Griffin, tables on the payment and lively Untapped Ales. The Old Nags Head. Premier Inn WiFi Ultimate isn’t. 

Orion and Austerity

Times are hard and getting harder. So the Beano, closer to home and monitor the hotel prices to get the best deal.  Orion in the East as the Sun comes up. A twilight and sometimes misty journey to Monmouth. Spoons opens at 07:00 as it’s a hotel and it was 4 Lattes as I battered Luma Fusion and Tweetbot. The Griffin was a revelation as  I drank two Untapped Fine Ales in the strong late Summer Sun. The Old Nags Head, a classic name for a Pub and the Butty Bach went down a treat. Make the most of it while you still can.

The first Austere Mini Beano on a Bank Holiday Weekend with an Amber Travel warning. Times are hard especially with the increase in The Energy Cap. However going out with a bang with two days of all you can eat Full English (in Wales). Orion was low in the Sky in the East, a sure sign that the Summer is fading away. It was cool with misty spells on the 34 mile journey up. Although it is forecast to reach 23c this afternoon. Have some royalty free music for the video and the local Spoons has blazing fast FTTC.

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.
