Periodically I have an assessment of how much money we waste on irrelevancies, and am horrified (like my little bat friends who had a rude awakening one sunny day) by our family expenses on communications and internet, and how bad the service is for all the money that they receive from us every month. Recently the signal in our house for cellphone reception has been appalling, Gavin suggested that it may be "too many leaves on the trees".
Well, I took a moment after that one to work out whether he was pulling my leg, or being serious, as I have heard of leaves on the line making trains late in the uk..... but then leaves are not supposed to be on railway lines. I am fairly certain, however, that they are meant to be on trees. And if Gavin is in fact correct, then what exactly are Orange doing about it. This exasperation should not be interpreted by them however, as a reason to go chopping down all the trees, but more as....... encouragement, that some signal boosters would be most welcome in our vicinity.
