    All you need to do with Chromecast, Chris, is plug the unit in a spare hdmi socket on your Tele and connect mains to the Chromecast three  pin plug and the rest is done via wifi!

    Just spent a couple a days with some of our kids and grandchildren. One grandson is way ahead of me on computers, I love it when he says to me, let me show you how it works granddad, and he is 8 years of age. What ever happened to steam power I say. Seriously, these kids today are so bright. And some say we are doomed after Brexit, don't make me larf.

    I used to be ahead of the curve, but then one of the computers I used filled an air conditioned room and probably had less power and capacity than my phone. We ran purchasing and stock control on a Commodore CBM - that was the upmarket version of the PET, with about a ten inch screen, 32k RAM and a whole megabyte of disks, two floppies in the days when floppies actually were floppy, and a dot matrix printer. The program was written in machine code and to modify anything we had to Get A Man In.

    Now I'm trailing badly. I'm old fashioned enough to prefer hardwiring everything, I only use Wi-Fi for the phone and lappy, I need to add a switch to my router so I can connect the second computer alongside this one and the two printers and the fileserver and, well not the TV but the TV recorder. It'll mean punching more holes through my firewall along with the actual cabling. Does anyone have any circular tuits to spare?

    I'm the opposite much prefer wireless connectivity my printer is Wi Fi enabled and I'd have no problem connecting other computers wirelessly either. I don't miss all the cabling all I have now is a power cable for my lap top

    All the networks that come up here are secured, could never understand why anyone would leave their networks unsecured it's asking to be hacked  Sad

    It takes some faffing around, that's probably why.

    Every ISP I've used comes locked and can only be accessed by using the password key, I think they must have manually opened them up for some reason

    Changing the subject ...

    Marmite something you love or hate?

    Is mustard the same?

    I do use mustard in some recipes, but must admit I'm not a fan of spreading a little on a piece of meat.

    However, it is a great shame that Colman's will be closing their Norwich factory ...

    I still hope the yellow tin/jar survives being made, hopefully in another UK factory, but you can't but help sympathise with those in and around Norwich who will be affected by the factory closure.

    Yes always sad when an Old Name goes. Bloody Unilever.

    Personally I'm not fond of mustard but if I was I might try this

    http://www.cumberlandmustard.com

    This caught my eye

    https://www.aol.co.uk/news/2018/01/05/permission-sought-to-replenish-reservoir-despite-recent-rainfall/

    I remember when it was built, a neighbour was one of the directors of the water company and took us to see the work in progress. There were times in Surrey and Sussex, and probably Kent too, when we had hosepipe bans and floods at the same time. More recently I remember they were putting in some giant water mains to move the stuff around over long distances while simultaneously losing hordes through leaks in the existing piping.

    When I saw the headline 'Pothole-related breakdowns soar in 2017 - could poorer roads be to blame?'
    I was not surprised ... out driving these days you need to keep a close eye out for the potholes! One of our sons does a lot of bike-riding, he too (and other bikers/cyclists) have to be careful to avoid them, they can do a lot of damage!

    "Figures released by the motoring service company, the RAC reveal that the number of drivers breaking down due to impacts with potholes rose by 11 per cent in the latter part of 2017.

    The RAC's breakdown service attended a total of 2,830 incidents related to potholes in October, November and December last year – compared to just 2,547 over the same period in 2016.

    Further analysis supports this. The RAC admits that breakdowns usually increase during the final quarter of the year, due to worsening weather conditions. However, it reports that the rate of increase between this period and the preceding three months was 45 per cent, compared to 38 per cent in the previous year.

    The RAC's figures come just days after a consortium of local councils revealed the disparity in funding between major and minor roads. Motorways and strategic trunk roads receive, on average, 52 times more funding than smaller council-managed roads.

    The RAC's chief engineer, David Bizley suggests that the worsening road quality is a major factor in the number of breakdowns. "After several years in which the surface quality of our roads appeared to be improving, the latest analysis of RAC breakdown data suggests that for the third successive quarter we have gone backwards," he said.

    "Distorted wheels, broken springs and shock absorbers can be very expensive problems to put right," Bizley added, also warning that they can be "genuinely life-threatening" for motorcyclists and scooter riders."

    Our local roads have been significantly better than in many other places for a long time but are now starting to decline due to penny pinching. There were main roads in Surrey that were in worse condition than some of our cart tracks.

    Increasingly when they do road works they close the road completely. Health and Safety presumably, but a damn nuisance when they block off the road miles from the actual works and prevent access to the unaffected side roads.

    Surreal conversation I once had in a local shop with some local people

    "Oh damn! It's raining and I just put my laundry out to dry"

    "I'll put mine out when we get home"

    "But it'll be dark!"

    "That's all right, it's a nightdress"
