Given that The Blood Donor episode of Hancock's Half Hour is almost 24 years older than me she might have had a point.
I retired from competitive politics at the end of 2019, but since about last March I've been getting regular phone calls every month or so from different people (none of whom I think ever voted for me) questioning my resolve to stay retired.
I got into an impromptu race earlier with another runner who just happened to be heading the same direction as me.
I lost the race because he was a good eight seconds a minute faster than me.
There is no moral to this story, I just want to see who I can annoy by using *seconds per minute* as a measurement.
I've just accidentally purchased a #pinephone!
Entirely on #FT8 as I've done many times before, but mostly using 30 and 60 meters which are new bands to me.
I suspect this may have been one of the easier tasks.
Earlier today I discovered the RSGB's Beyond Exams Club Scheme (https://rsgb.org/main/beyond-exams-building-experience/club-scheme/) that lists 23 activities to encourage being more active in amateur radio.
I have already completed 3 of them this year, and in the absence of parkrun, I might try seeing how many more I can accomplish this year. Some of them should be relativity simple, others like writing usable software less so, but lets see if I can complete 10 of them.
@tony if you are still looking to join a running club for parkrunning might I suggest this one ...
Given that I gave up running after 12 miles yesterday, now seems as good a time as any to ask people to sponsor me to run 26.2 miles ...
Today I calculated that is I run just under 10K every day for the rest of the year my kilometrage for the year would be 2020!
Fortunately I work in miles not kilometers so I'm not tempted to attempt such a stunt - although an average of 4.083 miles each day would see me reach 2020 kiloyards in 2020.
