    So we had the council elections and the EU parliament elections here in the UK.

    I've come to the conclusion that there are a lot of stupid people who vote. :P Our new 'far' right party won the EU elections. I'm waiting to see what happens but I personally hope that if they do things to limit EU involvement then I hope the EU returns the favour. Then II'll wait for the screams of anguish as things become more difficult for British people to travel and buy property abroad. :P

    Also the French voted very rightwinged and anti-EU. The French who profit so much from it... well. At least it's interesting ;-)

    So I had to hard reset my phone because it was acting up and I kept losing data connection. That means I lost whatsapp, but since I didn't use it that frequently it's not a huge loss.

    At least it seems faster.... :P
    If I'd had to do the same I'd get a HTC One Mini 2 or something like it ;-)

    Hey Rue, we've decided to stay two nights in Cardiff and only one night in London. We wanted to stay two night each, but then the hotels were very overbooked in London. No we have one night extra we still have to book. We thought about going to a small village for a night.

    Do you know a place around or between Cardiff and London that's nice and easily reachable by public transport?

    The city of Bath comes to mind but I'll have to see what route your train takes. I assume you're leaving from St. Pancras station?

    Do you know what stops the train makes on the way?

    I'm still thinking of Android myself. My phone is getting older and not much seems to be happening with WP. Well to me anyway. Some people have different opinions of what's important to them.

    I'm in no hurry to get a new phone so I'm happy to wait a little longer.

    There's been a lot of patriotic talk in the right wing sector of politics here in the EU lately. More and more right wing parties are getting seats and becoming popular. There seems to be an identity crisis with some places and fear seems to be a big driving force.

    I unfortunately live in a highly conservative area. Just looking around you can see the issues with these types of governments but people seem blind to it. I don't understand.

    We were also thinking about Bath. I'll have to check for train stops though.

    I'm not in a hurry either. Since the battery fix, my 8X is very enjoyable. But the fact that I need Whatsapp and the limited selection of interesting WP devices right now would make me buy an Android device.

    But if possible I really want to wait and see what Apple will be releasing in autumn.

    In Switzerland there's also a shift towards right-winged populism, and these circles of course enjoy the EU elections now. I'm a little afraid by this development, xenophobia, protectionism, bad relations with other nations, that always led to bad things.

    The common people just take the easy way out and blame the easiest targets for everything. And politicians take advantage of it. It's even worse in Switzerland with a very high standard of life and a low unemployment rate. Mostly people vote right because of fear of loss, not realizing that our wealth is coming from trade and a close relationships with the EU. What makes it worse is an incredible arrogance, many Swiss think Switzerland is very important and the EU needs Switzerland.

    I'd honestly get a smart watch if I chose to with my Z Ultra as my daily driver.

    The honest truth is that WP is moving along slowly. I'm watching closely to see what happens with it, but I just think that some of the platform's charm will be lost as MSFT caters more to what is out there in terms of these elusive features people are clamoring for.

    If I didn't have a Z Ultra, I'd honestly have gotten a Z2 and a 1020. The Z2 might be my daily driver and the 1020 my weekend phone. The Z2 is stupidly expensive though. Android still hasn't fixed the issues why I left it for WP, but...I'd still pick it over iOS.

    What I like about my watch is that the battery can last for years :)

    I did have watches like this, they can also have disadvantages. I usually don't wear my watch at home, some people take off their pants, I take off my watch. At least the Swatch I had stopped because of that regularly.

    But my T-Touch is electronic anyway, so it wouldn't work. Still, I prefer a few years to a few days.

    If you can stop by Bath I highly recommend it. It's such a beautiful city. The Roman Bath is cool but the city itself is rather striking.

    I haven't worn a watch for about 4 years now. If not longer. Not that I don't like watches but I had an issue what they were starting to bug me. I have issues with my neck which causes pain down my left arm to my fingers. I tried a watch on my right hand but didn't feel right.

    As for smart watches I'm undecided. If I do decide to try a watch in the future I may but one but I do want more than a 7 day battery out of it.

    Since my use of my phone is fairly basic I'm happy with WP for now but I'm getting tired of the app situation and the lackluster phones. Not to mention the costs. I'm not interested in carrier specific phones and I don't want a contract.

    I just hope the issues with WP OS start to iron out and the ecosystem gets better. I'm just a little tired being last ask the time. LOL 😁

    If I download an app on my phone and then move it to an SD card later, everything in that app will still work fine right?

    Ok that's what I was thinking. I saw the WPCentral article about Asphalt 8 and wanted to see if there is a Model S in that game and there is! I'm going to download it on my 1520 now and then get a microSD card and put it on that later.

    Tonight is the last dance class and it's a dance party instead of regular classes. So I baked a cake, but the oven overheated and now I don't know how good the cake is. That worries me...
