[access-uk] Re: First Guide dog

Hi Andy,

My response wasn't meant to be narrow minded by any means.

Yes indeed I admit that I am becoming rather old, decrepit
and as you have pointed out, impatient.

However, I do see many questions on many lists, where I'd
love to be able to show the questioner how to use a search
engine.  More often than not, you'll get the answer in half
the time it took to type out the message asking the
question.

I'm seriously lazy (or just short of time) so I use just
one.  http://www.google.co.uk.

So I type in the following into the search field.

+"Holiday Inn" +"East Kilbride" +broadband

The + sign means that I am looking for something which MUST
be included.  The quotes surrounding two or more words, mean
they must be found as shown, not as individual words.

The Second one that comes up says:

"Hotel in East Kilbride Holiday Inn East Kilbride. A Hotel
in East Kilbride, Glasgow, Scotland ... Wireless Broadband
Internet Access from rooms; Services; Guest Laundry Service
..."

So you can see that all the words or expressions I searched
for are there.  I really don't need to go any further.

Click on that link, and bingo, up comes a page where under
"Facilities" it says "Wireless Broadband Internet Access
from rooms".

I am all for support, Andy, and I do try and give people
answers, but there are times when my inbread Scottish
impatience get the better of me.

"Help those who help themselves"

(Look that one up in Google! Smile)

George.

Hi George.

 I believe that Peter's question was a legitimate question
to ask on this list.  Of course he does have the
intelligence to lift a telephone and make enquiries,
concerning the services available to guide dog trainees, but
did it not occur to you that perhaps, he valued the
experiences of other list members, who may have undergone
training at the same venue?

To respond by simply suggesting that he could try
telephoning to make enquiries, I believe, was very narrow
minded and petty George.  Actually, I'm getting pretty sick
of reading similar responses, particularly from yourself, to
other list members, who may ask legitimate questions, that
obviously irritates you, and subsequently results in an
abrupt or arrogant response.
If this list is about anything George, it's about supporting
visually impaired people and  I'd have hoped, that given
your experience of visual impairment over the years, , you
could have  been a little more positive and supportive to
Peter's enquiry.
