Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Are these lead pipes still conveying drinking water? If so it's no wonder Britain seems to be following the Roman Empire into decline and fall! Yes they are. The main in the back street where I live is all plastic, it's the pipework from the stopcocks just outside of the properties to the stopcocks...

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

As I understand it is when they dug the cellars out the drain in the cellar fell into the main outside street drain which was set at a very low level. The water table that the cellar was built into may come half way up the walls which hopefully could resist water ingress. The same applied to the fl...

Re: COMPUTERS, THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY

I paid £3 a pint last night. No idea how much a packet of 'fags' is. Last time I was behind someone buying cigs and they opened the doors, I think it was around £8.00 a packet. You get a pretty picture for that as well, something on the lines of cancerous lungs or other nasties. I've just 'Googled'...

Re: HOUSEHOLD TIPS NOT FOUND IN WOMAN'S WEEKLY

We have three months of winter to survive yet! Yes, and possibly much worse weather. Meteorologists report a dramatic change in the wind direction 50km up in the stratosphere and a rise of 50C in temperature there. They describe the problem as funnelling down to affect our weather close to the grou...

Thanks Kev! I bought a Samsung sound bar from Curry's on Comrade Nolic's recommendation, he says Jack's is as good as his Bose and it was only £99 but I paid extra for timed delivery tomorrow.

I saw that too, I've been advised, as disgusting as it sounds, to sneeze and cough with my mouth wide open. Don't try and stifle anything, scares the life out of small children and dogs when I sneeze :-)

Sniff and spit instead? (Sorry about that if anyone is offended....)
Sniff very gently :-). The difference in air pressure in the sinus and my mouth could open the wound again. I think it's healed enough for that not to happen but I'm not taking any chances.

Had another courtesy call from the Colne Dental Centre at lunchtime, very impressed with the aftercare. Had the stitches removed on Friday and it's making good progress, they reckon another two weeks before it's fully healed. Not allowed to blow my nose during those two weeks which is a bit of a nu...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

I joined a 'friendly society' 40 years ago, the yearly subscription of £8.40 has never changed. It pays all my dental charges up to £300, optical charges up to the same and any chiropody or physio up to £80. I also got £500 when I had my appendix out in 2003.

Re: WE ARE WHAT WE EAT

I have porridge with a few frozen berries and semi skimmed milk, it all goes in the microwave for 3 minutes. I'm not a fan of full fat milk unless it's in coffee. I really should eat more fish, grilled sea bass fillets are a favourite, along with the spicy battered haddock at Banny's in Colne.
