This post is almost a throwaway , as I need to do a post about the festivals that I've attended this weekend , but they will appear on Spoongig sometime this week.
The title of the post is taken from the Orange Juice song of the same name, which is a fine song but doesn't really live up to the violence and clean slate manifesto of the title. The song should be load , fast and take no prisoners, instead it goes along at it's own laid back pace , conveying a great sentiment very gently.
I got to thinking about this because my power monitor had sort of stopped working. I wasn't sure what was wrong , but knew I recently replaced the batteries in the transmitter. Like a typical man I thought I was going to have to reset everything , replace the batteries and reprogram the device, which I wasn't looking forward to, Then unlike a man I quickly scanned the manual and noticed it wasn't receiving a signal (a little indicator wasn't showing as was illustrated in the manual). I then checked the transmitter and saw that it was transmitting (it has a red signal light). Then I thought I'll switch it off and switch it on. And that did the trick.
So often you don't have to start again , with a litlle thought you can find a simple solution to your problem.
This isn't always true, but I do love simple solutions.
And then a little icing on the cake...
It's always nice to be pointed in the directions of good things and this folk blog was a particular gem. Well worth a visit , though I think I will add to my blog lists. Mojowire is here . Some great stuff about English Folk Music
