Re: Favourite Walks and Rambles

Did a Weets circular today. Moorgate, Standridge then into the field and up the ridge. Round the trig then back to the cairn to put a call out on 145Mhz (2M) from my handheld transceiver. Simon came back who was operating mobile from the top of Burnley, then Ray from Winewall called in. Simon was a ...

Re: Favourite Walks and Rambles

I have the discount card for Go Outdoors as we got some camping kit from them as well as the mid boots. Agreed they are not particularly dear compared to what you can pay but it depends how much disposable you have. We have been managing on one pension for the last six years of course so not much of...

Re: Favourite Walks and Rambles

Yes, found some Brasher Country boots, a tad on the expensive side though at £129.00 even on discount from £155.00. Berghaus also with Vibram but again around £120 and above. :sad:

Re: Favourite Walks and Rambles

Yes, I know you like your Brasher's Wendy. I work from the sole upwards and am convinced the Vibram keeps me upright where other soles have failed. I need to feel confident in my boots. If I can find some Brasher's with Vibram I will take a look. The ones I got are very comfortable and Sally says sh...

Re: Favourite Walks and Rambles

Went out for walk round the fields yesterday. Out via the stables, through the orchard below Cow Pasture and up the hill over towards Raygill. Here is where I found that my new boots are not suitable for my drop foot. The grass has not been mown on the first hill so I had to do about half a mile up ...

Re: BEWARE! THE BANKS ARE OUT TO GET YOU!

When I was pick pocketed on Nice railway station. The professional team that hit me, (including an eight year old or thereabouts girl for authentic looking dad and daughter) spent just over £2000 in fifteen minutes in stores around Nice. I couldn't cancel until 40 minutes down the track as I didn't ...

Re: Seen in the News

Reports also say that the perpetrator also shot himself in the neck? I cant see the Suns photo explaining that one. Every cop program I have watched of the ones on the sharp end of policing shows suspects being searched after being restrained. A weapon such as a hand gun isn't exactly invisible. I w...

As a bit more information emerges about the shooting and death of a police custody sergeant. It would seem that the perpetrator was handcuffed with his hands behind his back. I cannot get my head round how in this position he managed to produce a firearm and shoot the custody sergeant dead and then ...

Yesterday was bob on for emptying the roof box and getting it off the car. Bars have gone upstairs, box is waiting until we have stacked and stored all the other stuff properly. I have kept our can of waterproofing spray out as one of Sally's kagouls needs a treatment.

Well that's fair enough. The Apple problem is documented and seems to be an example of unintended consequences. One thing is for certain it's nothing to do with the site.

I just Googled "Issues with Apple Updates" and got this hit, it may be relevant.

Fix for resetting default apps bug

Another result from the same search:

The verge - Apple updates

I think that nails the problem with your chosen device and its updates

Nothing wrong with the site.

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

I think the rise in cases is not a product of wearing face masks. Just that folk were encouraged to wear them at the same time that testing increased and therefore the number of cases went up. In my view we were late to the party in the face mask dictate. Most other countries wore them from day 1. B...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

The link is simply wrong so not an issue as such. Try clearing your cache and also try a different browser if you can. No one else has flagged this as an error so it is almost certainly something to do with your platform Maz.
