Life in North Wales with an eccentric Welshman, a dog in the twilight of his years and one in the 'know-it-all' of youth.
"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

We've been having intermittent problems with our internet lately, usually out of office hours, so when we ring BT we end up speaking to someone in India who is obviously reading from a script and hasn't the faintest clue what might be wrong. During the last few days, however, it's been worse and we are still not sure whether the problem is with the modem or the line. When Keith rang the other day, he ended up, not having the connection tested, but ordering a new BT Home Hub, which is one of those all singing, all dancing ones which give you broadband and TV as well. It's cheaper than Sky and the reviews I've read of it have been favourable, so we'll see... The modem is due to arrive tomorrow, so I have two requirements to start my week: 1. That the modem arrives tomorrow as promised and doesn't get lost in the post like the last one did. 2. It sorts out the problem. Not much to ask!
