769 – Locality & Hashtags

I have just done a quick check of all 768 previous posts and there are four where I mention this thing called locality, and I think it is No. 302, and even there I don’t really talk about it much.

It all started one misty morning in May 2015. All of Cunard’s queens were departing in formation. I was stood at the waterside at Gilkicker Fort waiting for them. What I do remember was that initially it was misty and very cloudy and the Red Arrows were due to fly over them. Luckily by the time the Queens appeared, the sky and mist had cleared. It really was a spectacular departure.

The point of was though that this was just after I had spent a bit of money on a radio scanner which I still hadn’t worked out how to use. But within the year I will be a licensed radio ham. But that’s another story. The thing here was that I had a number of interests and hobbies that were coinciding;

  • Photography
  • Amateur Radio
  • The local area (history)

Using an application called DayOne, I spent some time setting up a framework, which I called “Locality” I had set the parameters as the eSolent from East to West. I must admit, I am thinking of changing that to a 50 mile limit from where we live – I say that because it is the distance we can travel without having to seek a re-charge for our EV, plus a bit of a safety margin. Actually, 50 miles covers quite an area (I’ve just done the calculation, it’s around four thousand square miles and that is only half the circle, because we are on the coast.

I included hashtags in the title. Hashtags are supposed, amongst other things, to make searching for topics much easier. For some some reason I stopped using them, but I can’t remember why. I need to have another look at them – They don’t affect the reader as far as I am aware.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
