Of sleeping beauty

11th March 2018

A busy week here at the Briddon Country Pile. Let me see what I can tell you of it.

Of a long first week

8th January 2017

I thought I'd start off this week with a service announcement. If you are a Virgin Media customer, you may have had difficulty getting in to Weekend Rails for the last month or so. A while ago somebody tried to hack in to Weekend Rails from a VM account, and the security software banned their IP address. But as Virgin Media uses a generic IP address, it effectively banned all of VM from access.

Of pressing matters

1st January 2017

This week has rather been a blur, so I might get the days wrong and such, but here's a round-up of Christmas week here in delightful Derbyshire.

Of miles, smoke and Mond

14th August 2016

Ok, let's be clear. This is not a competition. I am not offering prizes. Just because I mentioned that one of my readers texted me before 07.00 on Monday a couple of weeks ago, it does not mean that you have to jostle to surpass it. (But for the record, it was an 06.35 e-mail which at least didn't disturb my well-deserved [desperately needed] beauty-sleep).

Of plus one to the collection

5th June 2016

I said last week that I'd have some good news to impart, but in truth I'm only going to give you half of it, as the second thing we had planned for the week didn't come off. Never mind, we've rescheduled everything back 7 days and hopefully, it'll be on the agenda for next week's blog instead.
