Not so happy customers

I have received quite a few emails recently from readers who feel that the standards in many local eating establishments are declining. Service, cleanliness, and food quality are all areas of concern for many. I mentioned this to several people over the holidays and just about everyone exploded with their various negative comments and anecdotes. On a personal note I feel that the once famous Irish welcome is a thing of the past other than in exceptional cases, and it makes me feel very uneasy for our tourism future. This is also true in many shops where you feel like you would need permission to ask a question. Before I put pen to paper I thought about possible reasons for this situation, and it may be that staff are being treated poorly, or perhaps they are under personal hardships, or lack good management, but whatever the reason, it is still no excuse.

Baby Mama

image preview

Two women, one apartment, and nine very eventful months. Baby Mama is a predictable comedy about a successful and single businesswoman whose plans of having a child are thrown when she discovers she has only a million-to-one chance of getting pregnant. The film’s opening sequence shows the career-driven Kate Holbrook (Tina Fey) on a blind date, where she explains, “ Some women got pregnant, I got promoted. I want a baby now, I'm 37." Needless to say, her blind date rapidly flees the scene.

An American dream in a town called Lewiston

There was a famous fight in this town in the state of Maine, once upon a time. Sonny Liston and Cassius Clay — later Muhammed Ali — came to Lewiston to fight for the heavyweight championship of the world. John Delahunty remembers the excitement in town. He now runs a legal firm. On this evening of November 4 2008 he is working in a voluntary capacity. He is keeping an eye on election polling stations for the Democrats. “Right across there in the town sports centre. That’s where it all happened,” says John. “It was the mid 1960s.”
