A few minor tweaks to the style, let me know what you think (Dark style unchanged)!

On mobile at the base there's what looks like a WiFi symbol but when you click on it it just shows coding?

Is that next to the Help and Contact link? If so that's the RSS feed link for the forum so will load code unless you open it using an RSS Feed Reader :)
Today was the beginning of my 41st year on this planet and also the day I moved too a different country! After living in Wales for my whole life, due to personal reasons I've now moved to Leeds. Hopefully one day I'll be able to move back home to Wales but for the immediate future my life is now in Yorkshire! Guess it also means Leeds Bradford Airport is now my local airport! Hopefully I'll fly from there soon!
After working for a couple of years in a job that gave me no pleasure, I decided to quit and change my life completely. It just dawned on me at one point because I've never flown on a plane, never been to Europe, even though I'm 23 years old, but I'm losing my youth. So my friend and I started thinking about side hustles.

Understood Jenny. Reach out if you need any assistance.
Apologies for the reduced number of news stories being posted lately. I'm working from my mobile phone at the moment having broken my PC. I'm hoping Farther Christmas brings me a new one... fingers crossed anyway!

Still working from the mobile phone folks. This is really annoying

Family has gone another year closer to achieving the diamond anniversary of the family picnic... 58 now done; I do wonder if we will contact the press when number 60 comes around
4 more daytrips done Saturday to Tuesday. Over 40 miles walked (quite why in this heat, though!) with just on 1000 more photos. More pleasing is 3 were "new" places for me. Only issue yesterday was not one but 2 trains breaking down from Windermere (and to think the train fare cost more than all the buses I used)
Just realised I didn't give an update to the "post daytrip restriction lifted" scenario. 5 or 6 places visited so far and well over 2000 photos taken with today Tatton Park saying they'd like to feature a couple of shots on their social media. The good ol' days have returned.
Big decision made today. Decided to quit my job at the end of the month and take a break from long distance driving. 15 years is a long time to work for 1 company.
Going to try and use the break to get my enthusiasm back for avgeekery in general!

I'll probably look to continue driving but not the long distance stuff. After a break i'll look for a local job that means i'm home every day and gives me a better work life balance.

There seems to be a shortage of lorry drivers across the UK. Is that partly due to Brexit with Eastern Europeans no longer driving in the numbers they once did? First Group in Bristol once set up a recruiting base in Poland for bus drivers. There are still a lot of Polish bus drivers in and around the city.

That is part of it and the pandemic has stopped tests but also the job is less appealing than it once was especially with the long hours and the 4 to 5 nights away a week. It partly used to be a way of life for many but it is becoming less so. I also think that expansion by companies like Amazon and Aldi has also impacted the shortage.
Hello Sir?

I am wondering if have you got any knowledge of ground operations at LHR airport?

Looking forwards to hearing from you soon.

What exactly are you looking for?
Please do not withdraw from the forum. I appreciate your view's, knowledge and the photo's you provide. Your work for the support's group has been over & beyond. You are too valuable to lose. I am sure my thought's are shared by many other member's of the forum. It is easy for some people to make their comments behind a screen but coward's up front. I hope over time you will reconsider your decision. Best wishes.

Thank you. I plan on sticking around but it's been quite tough and after yesterday, I feel like stepping back. Whether I will or not remains to be seen!

Thank you for your kind words! Much appreciated.
With the restrictions being lifted, I am now looking to a coffee filled fest on a park bench on my birthday.
Just spent an entertaining hour drawing up a list of places for me to visit this year. There's nothing on it.

What, there's so many places you must still have to visit in the UK ?

Waiting till we get released from national lockdown to see which bits are going to be relatively open then working out the plan.
