Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

Keep at it and you'll soon be up at the Trig point again. That's the plan Stanley, glad yours went smoothly, was it a CT or MRI scan? Maz, yes the train beats driving to and parking in Leeds hands down, Sally is a competent but reluctant driver anyway and doesn't do cities. The journey will get eve...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

That is going to be an exhausting day for you, Panbiker. Not really Maz, 20 minute drive to Skipton, park at the station, buy tickets, train journey 40 minutes to Leeds, No 5 bus (one every 5 minutes) from right outside the station, 5 minutes to stop right outside the hospital. We arrived 10 minute...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

In some cases there doesn't seem to be a level playing field Tiz. I'm with you, the young ladies case if correctly reported does seem to be an accident waiting to happen. I know I am not yet fit to drive but would hope that I can get my permission back in a timely manner once I have made the grade. ...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

Got a letter back from the DVLA regarding my ability to drive. They say they have written to my consultant and that they will review my case when they have a reply, this could take up to six weeks. They also state that my ability to drive will be based solely on future medical assessment, I think I ...

Re: Mobile Phones

That used to be the case with previous types of battery chemistry Stanley. Nickel Cadmium (NiCads) and Nickel Metal Hydride types could both develop memory patterns through incorrect or irregular charging regimes, the former more than the latter. Lithium Iron batteries don't exhibit the same pitfall...

For that price I can have three of mine and I can fix it anyway. I don't think a £15 battery in four years is bad.

Re: Mobile Phones

Looks like the Lithium Ion (Lion) battery in my phone is on its way out. Noticed last week that it was only charging to 72% even on an overnight charge. It's down to 48% now so time for a replacement. It's not a drop in replacement and there is a note under the back cover that there are no user repl...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Not heard of them either. On the basic culinary literature front we have the BeRo Book of course in the UK. You could do far worse than having a copy of that.

Just Googled it and we would probably call it a type of sweet and sour chutney.

I have no problem at all in taking any medication prescribed as long as I can see the need for it.

I was gradually weaned off them as the need reduced and wa...

Tommy Kendals cloggers, Charlie Morris's camera shop, Derek Spencer's plumbing shop, three I can remember on that side. Original har...
