Not sure if anyone is interested in my motorcycling videos around Ireland…..?
Friday, 5th August 2022

Not sure if anyone is interested in my motorcycling videos around Ireland…..but even if you are not interested in bikes the countryside and vistas are stunning….turn the sound down if you like !!

This one takes us from Galway, down the coast road, past The Burran, through Doolin, past The CLiffs of Moher and Spanish Point to the River Shannon Ferry and onwards into County Kerry.

Thave a video for each day I was in Ireland – you can access these videos here.

MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT “SUBSCRIBING” TO A YOUTUBE CHANNEL !

When you SUBSCRIBE to a YouTube Channel it does not involve any money!! The advantage of subscribing is that you will see a notification on your YouTube home page, showing you which of your subscribed channels has new videos, saving you the trouble of searching around.

YouTube also uses its clever algorithms to learn the kind of thing you are interested in and make suggestions about what you may like to see. It is not intrusive…..there are no emails. Its a tool to help you!

If you have a Gmail address you can simply sign into YouTube using your username and password. If you do not have a gmail address you need to go through a simple registration process.

If you have youTube on your phone and also own a smart TV you can sign in to your account on the TV using a code they will send you!

I hope that clears up any confusion!

Lunch with Gladys the Dog at The Fox Inn, Sherborne…..
Wednesday, 3rd August 2022

What a dog Gladys is…..out again for lunch, twice in a week!

Bev and I are both recovering from covid and although the actual time we were infectious was just like a summer cold, it has left us tired and listless.

So we decided to go to the Fox Inn near Sherborne and build up our strength – Bev had a burger, me fish and chips and Gladys had some of both !!

Calne Bike Meet – Saturday 30th July 2022

[NOTE: – no idea why the video comes up blank but if you click on it you can see it !!!]

Well after two years of zilch, Roger and I recon this was the largest number of bikes we had ever seen at Calne Bike Meet, yesterday, Saturday 30th July 2022.

But I have limited the video because all you could see was people and bikes Ha Ha !

Very humid down there, too warm to lug yer gear around, so after a quick scout around we departed – me on my Royal Enfield Meteor and Roger on his little vintage Honda C110.

We met our old mate Dave with his vintage BSA 350 and Mike was immersed somewhere with his Meteor but we didn’t get to find him!!

Anyway you get the idea of the atmosphere from this – likely a super spreading event !!

Videos of my trip to Ireland on YouTube…..
Tuesday, 5th July 2022

I am conscious that readers of my inane rantings may have followed my trip to Ireland.

I am now putting videos up on YouTube if anyone is interested but I do not intend to publish all these videos here, on my blog – some may find that level of “self promotion” too much!!

The first in the series – I aim to do one video for each of the 15 days I was away – is here on the blog…..its an overview of the entire trip which you may find amusing and you’ll notice I got back in one piece!

All the other videos will be published – two per week – on my YouTube Channel – roblittleuk.

If you would like to follow my videos in Ireland, and others I publish about travel and The Cotswolds, the best way to do this is to SUBSCRIBE to my Channel. Then it will be easy to find my videos. “Subscription” does not involve any form of payment – you just get notified of things you are interested in. If you have a gmail address you can just sign into YouTube using that. Otherwise you need to register with another name and password. Nothing sinister about this…..no hassle…..you just end up watching the videos that interest you!

Here is my second video of the series….my trip from home in the Cotswolds, across Wales, to the Ferry at Fishguard on the west coast of Wales. Click on the link! But for future videos, please search direct in YouTube.
