    I am, once again, in the catch 22 battle with Micro$oft concerning email blockages. Their argument is that the IP address of our web server is within a GROUP of IP's that contain one or two known spamming sites. Consequently our IP has been added, once again, to their blocklist by association. I...

    I hope everybody is going to celebrate the 80'th Birthday of the greatest living songwriter on Monday. The Nobel Prize for Literature winning Mr. Robert Zimmerman a.k.a Bob Dylan.

    Losing the will to live...!!

    Recently, when calling my local Doctors surgery I would get the usual message about if it's an emergency to hang up and dial 999 (911) and then the covid warnings and messages. Ok, not so bad, normally about a minute and a half. Now we get those messages PLUS messages about domestic abuse...

    I'm not such a freak!

    Recently joined a forum for like-minded headphone/audio enthusiasts. WOW! what an eye opener. I thought I was a bit of a headphone freak, always upgrading in the pursuit of my headphone nirvana. I have just upgraded to a pair of AKG 701 reference grade at.... well more or less a couple of...

    Courtesy, certainly NOT in Cornwall!

    Popped into our local Boots the chemist to collect my prescription this morning. Got there nice and early, about five minutes before they opened.
