Get away from it all.... downside....no Plusnet

Get away from it all.... downside....no Plusnet
Nor mains Electricity, nor Water.

Rubha nan Gall cottage is on the Isle of Mull in the Scottish Highlands
The only water supply comes from a spring located on the 80-acre estate
But the 156-year-old home has spectacular waterfront views.
And boasts 80 acres of surrounding land and a mile of untouched shore front which includes the Rubha nan Gall lighthouse

I have used it, and it is slow & expensive !!
Just like Sat Phones.

( Internet Providers SheepNet, and its' subsidiaries WoolNet, LambNet & BaaNet ? )
I think one of the main benefits / selling points is to get away from Internet, and possibly TV !!!

Friends of mine have satellite internet from TooWay and 20 meg fast although only achieves 12 meg which is fine and only around £50 per month considering paying BT for no broadband only 0.2meg.

Hello again... I see you're back !
It's called irony.
( Irony is lost on some ! )
A journalistic technique I often use !

Secretary ?
Oh I see, you are referring to your post in another thread where you again commented negatively on a post of mine, about spelling, which had your bad spelling in it !!!
Quote from: shutter
Quote from: PlusComUK

A secretary once told me the secret to remembering which was the correct spelling.....

My teacher told me many times, the correct spelling an meaning of many words... I learned about that at school....

Pot, Kettle, Black springs to mind.

And Ironing ?
I actually have a "Woman that does" for most of my properties, both here in the UK, and abroad.
Usually a local Husband & Wife team, who look after the place(s) whilst I am not there.

Oh. dear.... some people.... just love to "show off"... and try to impress.... sorry... not impressing me, at all...  Sad
P.S.. the post you were referring to of mine  ( only partly quoted to emphasize the "correct spelling".. )...  Roll eyes ( a typical journalistic action of mis-quoting the full quote ) .. Roll eyes with the bad spelling of the word "and" was a typo...  Cheesy  Most intelligent people on this forum realize that.  Lips are sealed

Re: Get away from it all.... downside....no Plusnet

I had a similar reaction from an employee in one of my UK companies.
About the cars I drove.
Diagnosed as Tall Poppy Syndrome
I have a free Health Care Plan for Employees, and all are subject to regular Medical Check-ups.
Before, and during Employment.
It's in the contract they sign.
But, we digress, or should I say, you digressed.
