    R.I.P. Sgt Major!

    😢 I worked with a chap who looked remarkably like him - to the point where I'm not sure that I can remember his real name...

    New Aer Lingus Livery

    Vulcans, Valiants and Victors were painted white in the early days, as 'flash-protection' from the thermonuclear explosions they might have ended up delivering - so, if you happen to be flying in a white plane when Trump or Putin finally get fed up, you have a slightly higher chance of surviving for a few seconds longer.

    8mm cork strips

    8mm square? The stuff used as expansion strips for laminate flooring tend to be a little bit bigger. But, it's probably worth asking, if you have a local installer.. https://hardwoodfloors.uk.com/strips-skirting/cork-expansion-strip

    New Aer Lingus Livery

    Flintstones to Fiber broadband

    I'm in a similar position to you, probably 80% of my phone calls (outbound) are international. I have a 'deal' from many years ago, no longer available to new entrants, and they keep trying to tempt me off it with speeds that I don't need, without mentioning the loss of the 'free' international calls. My broadband is laughably slow, apparently, but is quite adequate for me - and I do remember dial-up...
