The last two days I've been having trouble browsing the internet. My browser kept trying to connect to a mysterious host.

Well that's obviously rubbish but I eventually tracked it down to a mysterious 3rd NIC that I seemed to have acquired as part of a Video Capture card installation.

The Farmer's Cart - Towthorpe

Saturday lunchtime, I needed to get out of the house for a bit, so we went to The Farmer's Cart. It's a farm-shop not far from home and we go there reasonably often to get fresh veg and organic meats. They have a small café and we thought it would be nice for lunch.
