Pi-hole ad blocker

Gone are the days when browsing the internet landed you on pages that weren’t full of ads. These days, virtually every website you stumble upon or go to have the annoying ads in them. Sure you can install ad blockers on devices you use to stop them but what about taking it to the next level and blocking them on every device without the need for apps and software to be installed on the device itself?

That’s where Pi-hole is useful. By installing Pi-hole onto say a raspberry pi for example and pointing your device or even better, your routers DNS to the pi-hole, you can be ad free!

By simply installing onto a basic pi and connecting up to your router (including the power to the pi) you can be up and running in 30 mins or less. Take a look at the link below on how.

Strathaven balloon festival 2019

This festival was amazing. The festival was on in August from 23rd – 25th. We travelled to Strathaven on the Saturday around 4am hoping to catch the early morning flights but missed them by about an hour. We did however see the evening flights, the night light show, the morning flights on the Sunday and the sky divers. A truly amazing event and will be back hopefully next year.

Defeated at Anfield

Well it wasn’t going to be anything other than this was it!?

With Newcastle taking the lead early in the game, hope was short lived and the end result was expected with a 3-1 finish in Liverpools favour.

Newcastle are now 18th in the premiership table and with the next game against Brighton hove Albion, if we don’t get a result in our favour for this game then I can’t see us moving out of the relegation zone until December time.

Our games after Brighton are all well established premiership big clubs and can only feel frustration coming. I do feel there is worse clubs playing in the premiership that will fill the relegation zone up as we didn’t play that bad against Liverpool but it’s certainly looking like another pitiful depressing season. Ashley out and Bruce out will no doubt be focus yet again for the followers as we simply don’t pick up points over then next four plus games coming our way.

Next game Liverpool :(

This Saturday see’s Newcastle travel to Liverpool for their next game.

With Liverpool so far winning all their games I can’t see us coming out of this one without being battered and when I say battered I mean destroyed by at least three goals.

It may surprise me and we hang on for a draw if we actually catch Liverpool on a terrible day but I seriously doubt it!

Newcastle as a team are not strong enough or anywhere near the quality our away friends have and if a bets going on, it’s in Liverpools favour.

Nothing has changed with the higher Archy, Ashley is still at the helm of the Titanic toon and this is one of those games that will steer the ship clearly on course to the fateful iceberg!

On a more positive note, here’s the Newcastle Elmer 😄
