The arrogant Michael O'Leary capitulates !!

So the bullish arrogant CEO of Ryan Air, Mr Michael O'Leary has suddenly woken up to the fact that in retail, the customer is king. Well too late Mr O'Leary, much too late. Who in their right mind will want to travel with your low class airline when there are bargains to be had with more upmarket carriers who give a far superior level of customer service. In fact, I doubt whether the many thousands of your customers who have left you because you treated them with such disrespect will ever forgive you. You have treated us as fools for far too long and I hope it all back fires on you now.
Everyone will recall that Mr O'Leary's theory on baggage charges was to deter people from taking too much luggage with them. Another way of achieving this, so it seems, is to arrange for your luggage to be severely damaged whilst being loaded in the aircraft hold so not only do you have to pay for the privilege of taking luggage with you but also have to pay to replace it once it is damaged. Thus, you will definitely not want to take luggage with you next time. . .  geddit?? (see below)

Tim Cook CEO of Apple disrespected by Russian Vitaly Milonov

Tim Cook CEO of Apple has officialy come out as gay. This makes him the highest profile CEO to come out. Are most of us bothered about that? Well no, in fact I am really pleased about it as there must be many CEO's out there who are gay and this declaration by Tim Cook might just set the ball rolling as, after all, we are now in the 21st century right?
Well actually no, not in Russia. This is what Vitaly Milonov said as a member of the Legislative Assembly of St. Petersburg:

“What could he (Cook) bring us? The Ebola virus, AIDS, gonorrhea? They all have unseemly ties over there … Ban him for life.”

What a disgusting piece of shite Mr Milonov is and his comments also say a lot about Russia today. What a sick society they must be. I wish good luck to Tim Cook but I am afraid I cannot express what I wish Mr Milonov !!!!

What do G.P's really know?

You see, I have got this funny little patch just above my forehead which has been there for about a year.  I am always banging my head on the cooker hood (men don't belong in the kitchen) and I thought it was as a result of a little knock. Over the year it has got slightly larger so I have applied all sorts of creams to it, antiseptic, hydro cortisone cause it sometimes itches but it's still remained there. So I made an appointment with my doctor to get some jollop to put on it and make it disappear. On the other hand I was also unsure if it was more serious and wanted to know if it was. 
My doctor took out her magnifying tool which lights up (some sort of scope) and had a look and exclaimed "I don't think it's anything serious, more likely dermatological and sometimes they freeze it to get rid of it so I will refer you to the dermatology dept. at the hospital". 
I got a phone call some five days later from the hospital telling me that they had a cancellation that very afternoon if I could make it, otherwise not to worry an appointment will be sent to me in due course. I said o.k. as I am about.
I was called into the examination room on time which was great, sat down and the consultant swanned in holding the same magnifying scope thing my doctor had, had a look and within five seconds said "yes it is skin cancer and not what your doctor thought it was. Don't worry it is not the nasty kind, it is very minor and we will just cut it out at a day surgery". Well, can you imagine how I felt to be given this news. Of course I am relieved it is not the serious sort but it still is the "C" word and my doctor was completely off course and I have to ask myself what good are G.P's other than for treating colds and headaches or referring patients to specialists who really know what they are doing. I find it exceptionally frightening and I just can't get my head round it (no pun intended).
