Debit and Credit Cards

Wahoo; I’m now able to accept debit and credit card payments! I’m with both SumUp and PayPal. Having both methods gives me a balance of cost efficiency and breadth of payment methods. SumUp is cheaper, but PayPal allows me to accept payment over the ‘phone.

I’ve just finished converting my van into a hippy campervan. Goodbye sleeping in a cold damp tent in the winter. Hello to sleeping warm and dry! You can find the best video on YouTube, complete with a soundtrack and voiceover. Type in Hippy Kendal, and look for James I Morris.

This was taken yesterday from my main tent… With a great view of a lake, my girlfriend by my side, fine wine, cigars, our favourite cuddly toys and the highest cuisine, life seems very good on my day off!

All’s well. Particularly on the camping front. I’ve bought a foam mattress, barbecue, and tarpaulin. The tarp has revolutionised the camping! We can sit out under it, sheltered from the rain and sun. Here, I’m showing off my favourite onesey.
Work-wise, I bought three tyres yesterday, with Morning (one of my cats) enjoying the hide and seek.

Summer’s here, and the car is going well and enjoying four new summer tyres. It’s barbecue season, too; so cowering under canvas from the winter rain seems a long time ago!

Phew! Christmas is over and my girlfriend and I can get back to nature on Mondays. On Monday we were at Wasdale National Trust campsite. It was beautiful since the leaves were off the trees and we could appreciate the stunning scenery. The two photos below are a glimpse for you. And we had the whole campsite to ourselves!

<p>All is going well.  I’m trying to go camping (with a lady!) every Monday.  But high winds and care for my loved one made me decide to try a pod. These are like very posh sheds.  The Youth Hostel in Borrowdale, South of Keswick has amazing lake district views, and provided a wonderful setting for us huddled against constant rain and wind in our shed.<br/></p>

<p>Work is running well and smoothly,  so there’s little to report there.  The camping is going very well, so I thought I’d share a screen shot taken yesterday in Borrowdale.</p>

Website update...

I’ve added soundtracks to three of the videos on my website, today. And added a copy of the Taxi Table of Fares to the downloads page. Hopefully the movies will be more enjoyable, and you’ll be able to understand our charges more easily!

<p>Yesterday I was at the “birdcage” in Kendal, showing my support for “Population Matters”.  This group is trying to tackle the world’s increasing overpopulation.  I think it’s the most important problem in the world today.  If you’re interested, please contact Nick at nickghyll@aol.com.</p>

I had to replace a tyre this week. I had a puncture. Surprisingly, since it was a “run-flat”, no tyre dealer will repair it. It seems that a run-flat tyre has extra rubber in the side-wall to stop the tyre being deflated if it loses all its air. It should never be used if your car doesn’t warn you that your tyre has low pressure. Also, since the rubber may not show damage, when it is damaged, tyre dealers won’t repair it. I’ll never buy a run-flat again!
I’ve replaced the rear car mats this week, which I sewed myself to give a better fit. This should help the cleanliness as well as the internal appearance of the car.
I’ve been fiddling with the inner workings of my website; technical stuff to do with images, alt-text, and SEO.
And two new songs have been added to the jukebox. Please keep your suggestions coming!

Wow, you can now translate my website into a different language!
Bonjour, tout le monde! Oh dear, too late. Brexit. Oh well, the Aussies will trade with us. Hi Skippy.

It’s been another busy week on the website. Changes include having a background colour to the site, a new Flavicon (TK) - like the F symbol for facebook, and a couple of files you can download - including the current taxi prices in Kendal.

I’ve added touches to my website this week, including coloured page tabs, that change colour when your mouse hovers over them.  This will help to show visitors that there are other pages to my website.

I’ve improved some of the music already in the car, and added three new tracks.  2001 - A Space Odyssey is my favourite.  As a result of improving that track, I’ve discovered that I can raise or lower the bass in the finished product!

<p>Google were in Kendal today!  They were offering a presentation highlighting how the internet can be used to promote small businesses like mine.  Here’s a picture of me and Abby (?) from Google.  I’m the camera shy tall guy.<br/></p>

The video below introduces you to my girls. This, taken in June 2016, is one of six videos on this site.


Here, I'm in New York!  I had a fly-drive holiday via Boston, New York and Washington.
