Dublins 98fm Dave – Spanish Garden Tours

Normally when friends and neighbours etc come back from their holidays… guaranteed there’s a few pictures/ holiday snaps of unusual plants or something for me to look at…. In this case I got a video.

I had originally titled this post An Irish Garden in Spain but when I saw Dopey the Dwarf at the end I changed my mind 😉

Yes folks last week good friend and 98fm Morning Crew DJ Dave Moore went to his Folks-in-law in Spain for a little resting and this is what he brought me back. Take a look and see what you think….  thanks Dave 🙂

maxroam …technology for a gardener #2

The entire list of companies for ‘technology for a gardener’ is here.This is piece #2. The second company is Maxroam.

This is a slightly tougher one for me to explain…

Basically you purchase the sim card. The telephone number related to your sim card however is [if you are Dublin, Ireland] is a 00353 and 01 number. When you travel abroad this has two main benefits [to me]:

  • your roaming rates are reduced by between 70-80%.
  • the person calling you is charged for a call to a Dublin landline telephone number saving 25 – 35 cent per minute

There are other benefits, but one that I have heard of, although for no apparent reason – just not for me, [but why not?] is if you don’t have a landline number for your business, it’s the ideal solution.

What do you do next?

  • buy your sim card online
  • have an unlocked phone
  • buy your call credit online
  • no bills – as such

The big thing I like here is – it is simple[ish] once one gets it set up. But if ‘you’ have problems – well, you kind of can’t – just check out the video guides on their website. If that fails, just pick up the phone.

Add to that a Cork based and Corkman owned Irish Company – and you’ll understand why I love and admire Maxroam so much!

And if you don’t believe me… then ask the U.S. Army
