Here in what was the industrial South of Framlingham the broadband has been down for some 20 hours. If you're getting Internet on your mobile phone you may be able to use the phone as a modem for your computer. It's might be called tethering or possibly hotspot. Use your mobile to Google using <mymobilephone> as a modem. If you succeed your computer will be using your mobile's data allowance.

We have the handbill for the 1952 British Rail special run for the Framlingham Gala (poignant as regular passenger services to Fram ended in the October of that year) but we've mislaid the 1950s Gala prog offering a bicycle as the raffle's first prize and a running race class for unmarried ladies only.
