Praise and Blame

Praise. The RAC. There's been a problem with my car since Christmas Eve. I had it booked into the garage today but although it started this morning, it wouldn't move. A wonderful woman from the RAC fixed the whole thing and I only had to pay for the parts. Result!

Blame. BT. No broadband for most of the afternoon. 'We are experiencing major difficulties with broadband'. This is the company which boasts in TV ads of the reliability of its service.

Praise. Radio 2. Currently broadcasting The Beatles, Here There & Everywhere which I am *loving*. I also loved the Great British Songbook: the Sixties the other day, which was pure gold.
