Last night I watched “Fly with me” on the BBC, and it’s very funny, Matt Lucas and David Walliams , are really very clever satirists. They did however do a scene using the 1st class head airhostess, and her attitude to a couple who have been bought a 1st class ticket as a gift and she feels are not of the standing for 1st class, and as funny as the scene is it did remind me of some of the treatment I have suffered at the hands of the service industry. Why do we stand for this? We pay for the dubious pleasure of being treated badly, and it’s our fault, because we just don’t do anything about it.
I have been battling my phone service provider for several months, it all started in May. I was called by my service provider and told that I was using less than 2 gigabytes of data, and that they have a special which gives me 2 gigs and whatever I don’t use is carried over to the following month. Sounds great, go ahead, and with that in early June I left for Italy and did not use my service until the end of August. Now logic tells me that I should at very least have 4 gigs available to me, but within a few days I have blown though the cap and am paying 50cents a megabyte. How can this be? I ask for an investigation, and I’m told that this is correct, but how, because they say so, there is no physical proof of this that they make available to me, but that’s ok I buy 2.5 more gigs, and within 24 hours it’s used up, it’s insane, how is this possible, I then pursue this further, and am given the same response, it goes to investigation and I’m told that I have used it up. So by the 17th of the month I have been through 6.5 gigs, no one seems to be able to tell me firstly how did they get to call me and tell me I use less than 2 gigs and offer me that deal? Secondly, how is it possible to go through more than 6.5 gigs in half a month and not be able to get a clear breakdown on where it’s has been used.
Enough about that, but it’s enough, why do we keep taking shit from services we pay for, stand up and give them hell, you walk into a store, and you are not dealt with properly, do something about it, take your business else where, and complain to everyone who will listen, and go above that person, and keep going until you get satisfaction.

On a lighter note this one’s for some one very special, it was Mi Ma’s favorite.

I been thinking about change this morning, and the old cliche comes to mind, "the only constant in life is change" and I think it probably is true, but I wonder if it is also true about the very essence of you, can you change after all you have seen, experienced and lived through, this sets patterns in your life, and I wonder if therapy could even change those ingrained patterns. Of course I will admit that all those things cause your growth, and that in essence is change, but after years of that growth there is a whole bunch of things that cause you to act, react, and feel, and that forms patterns of behaviour and I wonder if this can ever be truly changed or worst case scenario modified? All that, got me thinking about just what I let into my life, and how those things are going to change how I act, and worst of all, will I repeat the errors I made before in the handling of these things because I haven't actually changed at all. The truth for me I'm afraid is dark,

"Cape of Storms"

So much for summer, damn the rain, wind and cold that's blown in.... just as I was really starting to enjoy the weather. Even Laika jumped up on the bed and curled up against me, ok she is a husky that likes laying in the sun, so she didn't like the wind and cold either. We live at one of the most dangerous seafaring places in the world, many factors combine here making it a passage feared by sailors. The violent, rampant winds and the hundreds of reported shipwrecks along the coast earned it the name "Cape of Storms" and later changed to the Cape of Good Hope. The Peninsula, in occupying this latitude, is first in line to be affected by the extreme winds and huge Antarctic swells which conflict not only with the South African anticyclone but also the powerful Agulhas current, descending from the Indian Ocean. This all makes the ever changing weather a pain, that's what you get when you live on an island with a Oh good heavens, baby
