Continuing with the work on my new Postach.io blog which is slowly getting a bit easier now that I better understand the many quirks it has. Have been slowly working my way through all the old postings and uploading them, I doubt this will save me time in the longer term but it should make things a lot more convenient which is important as I may have another thirty years of blogging left in me!
Failed to do any training again which is deeply unimpressive and I must try to get a grip of myself. Lorena is right when she observes that I get very wrapped up in individual projects to the exclusion of other things and my work on this new blog is another excellent example of this. The problem is it becomes very hard to change your basic personality after a certain point but I do need to make more of an effort.
Sir Bradley Wiggins stormed to victory in the World TT Championships in Spain today and I really enjoyed watching it. I certainly didn’t expect him to beat Tony Martin by almost 30 seconds but that is exactly what did happen, Martin was second. Stunning thing to do in what Wiggins said was his final World TT Championship, I just wonder if he might find it hard to resist defending his title in 2015 once he has got used to wearing those rainbow stripes?
Tried some of the sunflower seed bread I bought when Holland & Barrett had run out of rye bread and very nice it is too, I shall probably buy both types from here on for a bit of variety.

Twitter Updated: September 23, 2014 at 11:11PM @evernote @postachio Hugely disappointing experience with Postach.io Have found the sync arrangements unreliable++, abandoned.
Twitter Updated: September 23, 2014 at 11:34PM @evernotehelps @postachio To be honest I've given up. Really bad experience, proved to be totally unreliable, impossible to recommend
Twitter Updated: September 23, 2014 at 11:35PM @evernotehelps @postachio The Evernote side of things is just excellent which I why I wanted to use Postach.io but it's hopeless.
Twitter Updated: September 23, 2014 at 11:37PM @evernotehelps @postachio Some notes sync and publish, others do not, unpredictably. Had hoped to migrate from Blogger but too unreliable.
Twitter Updated: September 23, 2014 at 11:39PM @evernotehelps @postachio ZERO problems syncing @evernote material between machines, sync to Postachio hugely problematical, support poor.
Facebook Updated: September 24, 2014 at 01:49AM It's been a struggle and it's far from over but not long ago I decided to close down the Blogger blog (Leading The Tour) that I've had running since 2006 and move to a different platform. This was never going to be easy and getting all my postings into Evernote was a task on it's own. When I have uploaded all my previous postings to the new platform I will be able to continue with the blog but I will then be able to write all my posts and publish them from within Evernote and will also therefore have simple access to all the material I now store in there. The new platform looks very clean and basic without loads of frills and for me will be much better. I'm sick of having different systems for this and that and this is just another step in making things simpler and less complicated in the longer term, though it's not been a simple process!
Facebook Updated: BBC News - Ed Miliband insists deficit is 'priority' despite forgetting it in speech http://ift.tt/1mPvVSy
The Labour leader admits leaving out a part of his conference speech about the deficit but insists he covered his plans for economy. If you take a relaxed approach to this kind of thing what else are you relaxed about Milly? What a fool.
Facebook Updated: BBC News - Day out at the gallows and other Victorian photographic oddities http://ift.tt/1qs06tJ
Lined up for a family photograph, Victorians often looked grim and staid - people from another era. But forgotten photos reveal they were often more modern than we think. This will be recognised by anyone from around these parts, good old Winter's Gibbet hits the BBC!
Twitter Updated: September 24, 2014 at 01:43PM @tyabblemons @postachio For example, on the blog: http://t.co/LURsGRqrkb
there is a recent video. I've deleted the note but it remains!
