Sadly my family won't have a clue what you want or who you are knocking on the front door and looking for some lunch :lol:
I can recommend the Afon Conwy for lunch, right off the motorway A55 (at Llandudno Junction) before you head into the tunnel under Conwy, we've been there for Sunday dinner a couple of times and loved it. Its Brewers Faire and a Premier Inn next to it.

Or Fish and Chips at the Archway in Conwy it's right next to the castle wall and the arch that the old road goes through

You must be watching lots of TV, windsong ;) Haven't seen you around in a while. Hope it comes back for you soon. Think I am going to try out Tunnelbear on WhoFan's recommendation. Dying to see Broadchurch.

I watch it every night :)

I just signed up for the free version of Tunnelbear. Not sure of the difference between free and paid yet.

We'll be downloading it today sometime. We have finally decided to get rid of the cable (but we will wait until baseball season is over first!)

My experience: I finally went with TunnelBear last year because it was easier to shell out $5 (or is it 4.99) for a month than keep fiddling with locating free connections and navigating around them. I think the difference with the free TunnelBear and paid is that you are limited with use. So if you only watch one program a month it might work. I tried it and it fast became apparent that the paid was the best option. Never had a problem since: Corrie, Foyles War, Silent Witness etc etc...:D

PS I don't have cable at all here in NBTS so consider myself well ahead and saving $80 a month. I get my TV fix with Netflix and Tunnelbear, so a grand total of $13.98 per month. I even piggyback on top of a free internet provider :)

I read yesterday that the BBC is refusing to disclose the number of people who watch delayed broadcasting in the UK = a way to legally avoid the license fee as it is not a live broadcast.

I think the free version has limited bandwidth so it might be slower than the paid version. I also notice on my paid version that it says 'unlimited' so that might mean with the free version you might only get a limited amount of 'surfing' or program watching and more ads. I don't know, so don't hold me to that. I just went straight for the paid version to bypass any problems. :rofl:

I tried the free Tunnel bear and it ran out in about 10 minutes. The 4.99 per month is well worth it, I've never had any problems with it.
The biggest question I have is how do you hook it up to your t.v? I watch on my lap top at the moment.

Not being a techie I would just assume you would attach your laptop to your TV and operate it from your laptop while watching it on the BIG screen. Attach the necessary cable from the laptop to the TV switch the TV channel to PC and off you go. Easier said than done I bet.. LOL

Montfan use HDMI cable to view on your TV. I am looking at buying cheap computer from Ebay just to have permanently hooked up to TV and stream via HDMI cable and Roku box.
