After months of to and fro with BT Customer Care they decided to send me a new home hub.
A two second installation and then a while to connect all the hardware.
If this appears. It must have worked.

I had a trawl through my saved ITN and GPX files and found two massive ones that contain all the waypoints for UK Steam Railways including museums and stationary engine sites. I had made these from lots of smaller files. But, importing to MyRouteApp proved to be a problem as they are too big to import as they are and need to be cut down again!
If you sign up to MyRouteApp you might see the ones I have posted as I made them "public".

Enjoyed the ride
From my armchair. From my office chair. From the train seat on my daily commute. I enjoyed the ride. Enjoyed the description of the journey. The places. The people.

I have been looking forward to this game since the draw. Another away game in the south. Not as nearby as the last round in Maidstone, but in London.
Usually when you are drawn against a team 59 places above in the pyramid you think the worst.
But on NYD our other team, Arsenal, hammered them 4-1. So we thought there could be an upset.
Fulham are 19th out of 20 in the Premier League and as a result they must see that as more important than a cup run. So they played a weakened team.
With 8 minutes to go before kick off the Oldham fans, numbering about 3800, were in full voice. The home fans seemed somewhat sluggish arriving in their seats.
Although Fulham where the better team they didn't bother Iversen in the Latics goal at all in the first half. Latics had a few half chances and with more composure may have taken one.
The second half started pretty much the same but the home side were more clinical and dangerous. A little mix up and Odoi scored. 😨
The Fulham fans woke up!
"You only sing when you are winning"
Oldham began to struggle a little but despite the pressure Fulham didn't really look like scoring again.
A change was made and Sturridge came on. Instantly more impact. Chasing down and winning the ball in the areas where they had been second best.
From a corner there was a spot of wrestling and referee Anthony Taylor pointed to the penalty spot. Sturridge stepped up. 💥💥💥
Fully energised after the goal and it looked like an upset was on the cards and then disaster. Another penalty. It looked soft but apparently VAR said foul.
Fulham brought on Mitrovic. He usually scores penalties. Boom. Iverson dives left and pushes the ball away. Big hand to get the ball well away to the corner flag. Tbe Latics fans went wild.
Oldham reborn. A cross from the left on 88 mins and Callum Lang rose the head 2-1.
The crowd went wild again. Well. Our end. Home fans started to leave.
And finally the whistle.
A famous away win.
A couple of videos I took.

The Motorcycle Action Group (MAG) has been working to exempt as many motorcycles as possible from the high Ultra Low Emissions Zone (ULEZ) charges being introduced in London in April 2019. In a series of releases, MAG is outlining the progressmade with manufacturers in helping you to avoid charges, by proving your motorcycle is compliant with the emissions levels that have been set.
Following a productive meeting with the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, regarding motorcycles in the Capital, MAG is engaged in seeking information from manufacturers which will help you secure an exemption for your motorcycle. MAG’s Director of Communications & Public Affairs, Lembit Öpik, explains: ‘we have agreed with the Mayor that those motorcycles which achieve the emissions standards set for the ULEZ charge should be exempt. It’s common sense and eminently fair to do this.
‘There are two ways to achieve that exemption: a Certificate of Conformity, showing that your machine produces less NOx than the upper permissible limit; or a specific test of your machine providing evidence that this is the case. We’re working with manufacturers to see what needs to be done to get a Certificate of Conformity (COC) and we’ll share that information as we get it.
MAG is also working to seek a simple, long-term solution that avoids any punitive toxic tax for motorbikes and scooters. The current proposal, which MAG is opposing, would add £12.50 to a daily commute for many, increasing the cost of the journey by over 1,000%.
We’ll keep you posted on manufacturers as we get more information from them.

Over the years they have made it easy by having the destinations too far or too imaginary to get to.
