Internet… or lack thereof!


Sunday 22 March, 2015 by Uncle Spike


This is a quick explanatory note and a bit of an apology…

Over a week ago we had a rather monstrous storm – quite usual as winter likes to give a final bottom-kicking as spring pushes it firmly out of place. Anyway, said storm wiped out much of the local telephone exchange, and as the local technology was somewhat aged by a few decades, getting replacement parts is proving ‘challenging’.

Suffice it to say, my blogging and general contact with the outside world has sort of ground to a halt. I have managed to post to my blog in ‘lumps’, scheduling posts from the local town, thanks to a cafe there. However, with very limited time due to work, and no telephone or internet in the village and no fancy smarty-pants phone, it’s been a struggle. The worst part is that I simply am not able to follow my fellow bloggers, so cannot read or see any of your great works.

So, rest assured, I’ve not been ignoring you guys, just that the man upstairs has decided to curtail my blogging antics somewhat of recent. Hopefully life will return to normal later this week – possibly…

    Maybe this was a message to just sit back and enjoy what is. Inconvenient yes, but perhaps good for the soul.

      Perhaps 🙂 I spend little time on the net for pleasure these days, but with my wife working away, it’s our main form of daily contact, and blogging my only ‘sit down’ thing, so in actuality, it’s a good thing for me on balance, else I’d probably continue working :).

    That’s okay…we’ll still be here! Hate to miss the daily trip to Turkey!

  3. This happened to me as well, Spike, just over a week ago as we traveled to a home of aging relatives with no services. It just points to how dependent we’ve all become with the technology. Take your time getting back, I’m struggling to catch up !! Van

    It will be nice when you, the village and technology are all back to normal!
