Distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS attack)

It appears someone is determined to take my off-line. I have been getting lots of hits to DDoS level. So after being on-line since 1996, when I was only 16. It’s looking like I am going to have pull the plug on this website. It’s not something I really want to do. It’s been a big part of my life for so long. Just even typing this is hard. But I just don’t have the money for all the extra bandwidth it’s costing me.

So at the end of this month. I think I am going to have to pull the plug and close the website down!!

Vlog: A66 between Penrith and Scotch Corner

This may end up being the most boring ever video I have posted. I filmed the whole of the A66 section of the journey back from Scotland. I started the filming just outside of Penrith to the Scotch Corner service station.

If people do like this, I may film other journeys like the drive to and from work for example.

Vlog: Ghillie the West Highland Terrier

Gillie the family pet is the love of my life! He’s a West Highland Terrier and so cute and he really does play on it.

Just always hate saying good-bye to him. Since he’s getting old, I know, I may never get to see him again :(.
