Good evening each. I wasn't able to get on here last night as I really couldn't keep my eyes open I went to bed at around 7.45 and slept like a baby (no I didn't poo the bed and cry all night). I could just do the same again tonight and I didn't get up until nearly 9 this morning, and that is very late for me. A mate is supposed to be coming round later, it was arranged a while ago I hope he doesn't come tonight because he stay's a while.
So until then I will stay on here and see who I can annoy. Oh yes Happy new year to anyone I missed.

Hi Jo, no our frost never went away either. Yes it's still cold. I wonder if Lyn is experiencing snow. it can be right cold in Argyleshire where she has gone, but it's a beautiful place anytime.

Sorry Mmy internet keeps kicking me out.

It's a lovely hotel Jo I have stayed there for a week. The trips, the food, accomodation, the entertainment etc etc are great. I know the owner Ian Cleaver he keeps a close eye on it and his other hotels.

Well we are nearly at the end of our contract with BT, they have been quite good for a while but have gone back to rubbish. I would never recommend BT. Several people told us how good the were. Lucky them.

I've been on BT for years and due to the rotting copper cables in our street the broadband service can be a bit slow and the entire phone connection has been lost a couple of times for days at a time.

Prior to BT I had Virgin Broadband over the BT phone line. During the many years I was with Virgin there were frequent problems with broadband but non with the phone.
The Virgin broadband would go down for a week at a time and Virgin Indian customer support always blamed BT, yet every time they finally agreed to look at the problem it was up and running immediately.
When I left Virgin they still treated me very badly, my email account was cancelled immediately even though I still had three weeks paid contract left so I had to wait weeks for them to give BT my MAC No.
They also left my webpages on the net even though I no longer had access to them and couldn't update them or take them down. They are still there, now 18 years old.

I don't think much of thieving BT but at least if my broadband and phone go down I can still get on-line using the BT FON WiFi service.
I would never go back to Virgin, if I did it would only be on their own fibre optics so they couldn't blame anyone else for their failures.
