I was wondering earlier how best to describe things and this is the analogy I came up with:
… it’s a little like the family car. It’s vital, it is appreciated and quite possibly admired. The merits of it will be shared and spoken about but, bottom line is, when not required it is in the driveway, alone. No one feels the need to boost the ego or moral of the car because there is no need, it functions. Only when it splutters does someone think it may need some attention and then, quite possibly, it is discarded for a model creating fewer demands upon them.
