Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

After only 2 weeks on Dulaglutide weekly injections my sugar levels have dropped 3 points on the mmol/L scale. My appetite is much reduced so I'm eating less and loosing weight and I feel better that I have done for a couple of years. Hopefully if this continues I can come off the dreaded metformin....

Re: MAJESTIC CINEMA AND MATT HARTLEY.

Barlick "pop" at the Majestic did not begin until the early 1960's ( 1962 I think) and it ran on a Sunday afternoon. There may have been pop sessions on a Wednesday evening but the big acts came on the Sundays. Nolic

Re: FORGOTTEN CORNERS

I attended there in the 50's when Doris Riding was headmistress. Mrs Lemon the wife of the Earby Station Master taught there as well as lovely Miss Ogden who had taught my dad when he attended. Not the best academically in the town but a very caring school. Nolic

My Bose has no treble control.....it doesn't need it as it picks up the full frequency range. It does have a bass control function which I set at mid-high range for TV and low when I play my iPod through it via Bluetooth. On another TV matter.

Re: GOOD TV

Comments may have been made previously along these lines but I have resolved sound issues on programmes by buying and using a sound bar. Modern TV speakers are much smaller than earlier ones and cannot handle the quality of digital sound. A sound bar has resolved this for us. Nolic
