I was here earlier on in the year opposite Cannah Mead Wharf, where they do the occasional bit of work.
It’s kind of a nice spot, opposite the meadow.
There are many birds in the hedges here.
Solar is good. Phone signal is strong. When I got here, the C03 alarm was going off in one of the boats opposite and there was a couple of work boats moored behind me.
It had been raining. When I arrived, the owners of the work-boats weren’t aboard so I got the genny out and ran it for a little while to boost the batteries up a bit.
At about 7.30pm, I get a bang on the roof, so I pop my head out. It’s the owner of the work-boats, who’s obviously arrived home and says in a rather surly fashion, ‘Do you mind if you turn that generator off’. So I looks at my watch and says, ‘sure’, ‘it’s not 8 O’clock yet’. To which he says, ‘just a simple request’.
So, I said ‘fine’. ‘When it gets to 8, I’ll turn it off’. And got back on the boat.
It had been raining all day. I was hardly running it for the good of my health. …
Or so they say… Amazon has a return Police. Did you know that?
Making ‘too many’ returns gets your account flagged, and eventually, if you continue, will get you banned.
Since 2018, this seems to be an increasing common phenomenon.
Getting your Amazon account banned; too many returns?
This morning, I received an email. This is the ‘warning’ email, and in the UK, it’s sent by a .uk address called email@example.com.
The email I received reads like this:
