    We have a very, very long running problem with intermittent broadband connection. This morning yet another telephone technician was in our home and looking out through the window. He mused, “Lovely spot you have here. One of the first things I learned in this job was that if a house has a magnificent view like this then you can guarantee it has terrible broadband.”

    To misquote a line from the old song Love and Marriage, “You can’t have one with the other.”

    Roger.

    Yeah, just like the song I don't think that is always true. but one of my sisters lives in a house with a nice view and terrible broadband too.

    This is rather amusing, and not. I am seriously considering full retirement in Mexico. I have researched it extensively, and from what I have read, I can pretty much live like a king down there, with my current pensions, but the Internet sucks. lol
