Don’t call me (again)

So the backup phone seems to be dead, or very near death. It turned off and just won’t turn on again, at least not for any length of time. I turn it on and occasionally get the white screen of death, sometimes I get as far as entering my SIM password but never much further [...]


There has been much confusion, albeit in my mind only, about whether the solstice occurs on the 21st of the 22nd of June.
