the past two months, people have been emailing me a news
item or similar and then when I see them asking, 'why I
have you not published my article/event'.
reason is that I have not received their email. I can understand
the odd email going astray but this has happened far too
often, especially over recent weeks and I have begun to
suspect one of two things: either somebody has been accessing
my account or that my mail provider, 'Tiscali' is extremely
combat this; over the Easter weekend, I have changed my
email system - setting up accounts with 'Googlemail'. Hopefully,
all addresses you may have in your address book for 'Wyenot
News' should become much more reliable from now on.
are also other methods of contacting Tina or myself at 'Wyenot
News' and these are all shown on my contact
is a big problem for me - no exaggeration, I receive up
to 3,000 junk mails per day as a result of spammers knowing
about the 'Wyenot.com' internet domain and this has been
a big problem but hopefully, the new system will ease that
I have learned as a result of investigating my email problem
(just personal observation)
is brilliant! - it has an extremely efficient spam
filter and you can set up pop mail so that you can download
with an email client on your own computer, as well as
keeping a copy on the 2 gig of webmail space.
Internet Security is absolute poop. It is expensive
and wants to take over your computer. I use AVG - there
is a free version, which works just as well at detecting
combination of the two does everything that Norton
can - for free and with a web back-up for
your email, so even if you have to reformat your computer,
you do not lose your email archive.
email should, hopefully, now be more reliable, so if you
have emailed Wyenot News and I have not responded, please
try again. I am sorry for any inconvenience and have not
deliberately been ignoring any mail.
from a Helicopter: Part One - Wilton
(Parts one to four this week - more next week)
Our flight path took us just north of May Hill to Ross and
we approached via Upton Bishop and Brampton Abbotts to Wilton,
banking and turning left to put the White Lion Inn and Wilton
Castle on my side of the aircraft.
called the White Lion on the phone just before our approach.
Having taken my headphone communicator off to use the mobile,
I could not hear a thing but I knew it had been answered
so I shouted into the mouthpiece to announce our approach.
Jacqui Newman had fully understood and she can be seen waving
from the garden (wearing white, nearest river, left). On
the full size image, I can actually see it is you, Jacqui.
then flew over Wilton Castle, turned and headed for the
Doward, Symonds Yat and Goodrich, approaching Ross from
the Tudorville end . . .

from a Helicopter: Part Two - Tudorville and Walford Road
Our approach to the town took us over the Vine Tree Inn
and Vine Tree Park with the new 'Duplo Brick' housing estate
on our side of Walford Road. I should not have worn a stripey
