Longing for Dial-up!


NewbigginI’ve spent this last week doing a course in Newcastle, living in a house at Newbiggin about 15 miles to the north. The people have been great, both those on the course and those I’ve met around and about. They have been friendly, open and welcoming. However one old chestnut has followed me north, poor phone signal. At one point I sat attempting to access the internet with phone held aloft, typing with one hand…

Trying for Internet access,
I’m pulling out my hair,
one moment it’s gone,
the next it is barely there!
Using a hotspot,
to keep in touch,
is just frustrating,
just too much!
I dream of the day,
you can use your phone,
everywhere you go,
When away from home.

Thanks to the instructors and students on the course, for making a simple farmer so welcome! Oh! and I managed to pass by getting over 75% in the exam, the toughest I’ve ever sat in my life. So if you want to know how to fly UAV’s (drones) safely and correctly, have a chat to those nice people at Heliguy or RUSTA!
