A £15 replacement for the £19.95 Motorola I’ve been using for the last six years or so (the battery was beginning to fade). Just transferred the PAYG SIM over and there was my credit and numbers all ready to use. That’s the third handset the SIM has been in. It started around 2002 in a big brick of a Philips that cost £19.95. The Samsung does over two weeks between charges.

And it lets us find out about what the catholic church has been up to that it would rather not have us know about.

My postal ballot for the parliamentary election arrived this morning. It’s filled in and I’ll post it next time I walk the dogs. Then I can ignore everything until the result 🙂
