    Whats everyone got planned for 2016, if anything

    Any gardening plants, new plants, projects, or generally plondering onness for 2016?

    For me, hopefully at some point a new patch, in the meantime, some seeds, cuttings and replanting of troughs! and a lot of work in the family garden!

    Hoping to grow my own bedding plants this year, bought a greenhouse heater, seed trays and the seeds. I haven't got green fingers so just hoping that I get some results. A learning curve for me now I have an accessible garden.
    Looking forward to seeing the results, if any.

    Also hoping to be able to get affordable travel insurance now age plus the pre existing medical conditions are against me so I can continue to feed my itchy feet and go in search of the sun and places I would still like to visit.

    Thank you for that. Have tried some on the list and extortionate prices coming up or they will not cover me. Heart problems and SAH plus acquired hydrocephalus really throws a spanner in the works.
    Will try Freedom tomorrow.

    Got some summer flowering bulbs coming, a special offer from Thomson & Morgan. Need to set my seeds also but will have to wait until Easter because we are taking our pooch away and I have no one to water them or set the heater going if temperatures should drop. At least the bulbs should give some colour until the bedding plants are ready to be put out much later than would be normal.

    Just tried Freedom and they won't cover me. Look like paying an arm and a leg if I want to travel. I am going to have to think very hard about travelling abroad now even though I feel so much better in a warm climate.

    New windows and front door is the main project, followed up by some home automation.

    Recently installed a Hive device to control the central heating from my phone. Next up is a doorbell and door opener, lighting and power sockets all connected to my router and controlled from my phone etc
    No single thing can define me; not my work, not my politics, not my hobbies, not my vices and not my disability. I'm way more complex than that!

    Make sure you have a good, strong password for the admin functions on your router, (and for the wifi connection itself).
    You don't want some computer wizz being able to open your door at will from their phone.

    Of the 3 routers I can pick up from home and have permission to use the wifi:

    1 has no password at all on the admin, I can go in and change anything that I want to.
    (It's the museum next door, handy if the internet or the router itself needs resetting when the museum is closed).

    1 has the default name and password for admin.
    (Took me less than a minute to get in to admin functions).

    The other is passworded - I can get into the router, but can't access the admin settings without the password.
    (But knowing who it belongs to and that they use 'soft' passwords I could probably get in in less than an hour if I wanted to).
    I don't know everything. - But I'm good at searching for, and finding, stuff.
