I didn’t like what he said but I felt more sadness and horror at those laughing and cheering...

For anyone else not sure what we are talking about, it was this

I didn't. I've come to expect it. I do feel disgust for the creep, sharing the stage with Johnson. Jackson Carlaw, a Scotsman, laughing at Johnson's belittling of his country in front of an audience in England. He's the man hoping to fill Ruth Davidson's shoes as contender for the post of FM.
He was such a failure as a businessman that parents wanted him removed from Mysty's (?) school board. And he wants to run Scotland bwah hah hah.

As I understand it, that delightful speech was at a gathering of the Scottish Tories attending the conference. I can’t find the link to give you that gave that info., it seems the different factions of the Tory party also have their own events/parties?

I rang Orange to ask if we were getting fibre soon as I received an email from them but I couldn’t open the link. They said yes, a matter of weeks or months. He then looked at the speed of our internet and said he could improve it from 0.6. It is now a staggering 1.6. He said when we get fibre it will be like using light speed compared to what we have now!

:D Saw the second salamader in our cellar last night. We've had two for a few years but I don't know if they're the same ones or whether they're a couple.

Finally got to Betty's for a hot mocha and Yorkshire curd tart. Also spent a fair whack of this month's pension in Sam Turner's.

That might not mean much to anyone who doesn't know Northallerton.

Off to Hawes tomorrow to stock up on proper Wensleydale cheese.
