Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

The kit for the bowel screening program (poo sticks) arrived yesterday. It's different to the previous ones I have had and is only one plastic stich now with grooves on the end to catch the sample. The old kits had three cardboard sample boards and you had to do them on separate days within a total ...

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

Car Park is big enough for about three cars. If they have waived the 15 minute obs rule then it would work fine. They could run two separate lines as they did this last time for the socially distanced flu jab. I saw a news item and was shocked on how much time consuming preparation was required for ...

Re: Seen in the News

I saw a report that the Washington State Police checking cars entering the city from out of state in the run up to the inauguration. They found one good old boy with an assault rifle a handgun, three hand grenades and a scoped hunting rifle. "From my dead hands", yeah right.

Re: Blood Donors

We have to be pretty pure when we rock up to donate. I have had an invite for a dental check up but I am going nowhere near until after my next donation. A trip to the dentist a few days before a donation will definitely bounce you. I have no concerns dental wise so it's no great shakes and NHSBT ne...

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

Our surgery is a bit poky for delivering the Covid vaccine as it is just a warren of linked converted cottages no real space for anyone to sit down socially distanced after the jab for the 15 mins required. I reckon Colne may still be the best option in their shiny Medical Centre. In our forest, Jem...

Yours are all on my list too Peter. In fact I like a lot of different genres from 1920's and everything in between (more or less) up to the present day. Here is one band keeping live street music going.

Tony, I saw the picture you put up of the family gravestone on Facebook. I put a remembrance cross on there each year in November for Frank as I do for all the other service personnel commemorated on markers at Gill.

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

One thing I have noticed on the vaccine roll out is that if say there are spare doses available from a batch when all easily available patients in the first 4 groups have been vaccinated. The government is saying that they have to put the brakes on until other areas catch up rather than continue wit...

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

No age at all to be catching it then I didn't think age was a factor in getting infected ? Certainly is in the outcome, and in that age range, I'd say the prognosis was good for them both. I wish them both a speedy recovery. Thanks, they both work in schools one way or the other. Jemma is a Primary...

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

I may be wrong but I don't think Barlick Surgery itself will be suitable for dishing out the vaccine. OK for a walk through with the flu vaccine but too small for the regime required for the Covid vaccine. Just seen a news item that ASDA will be making spaces in some of it's stores for vaccination b...

Re: Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread

Half brick like actually, good crust as I put a water bath in the oven with it. Tangy enough and the crumb shows some activity of rising but not very much. Fine if you have it with soup or something else moist, otherwise it is considered a fail. I'm fairly certain this is down to the variation in am...

My starter was definitely dead so I dumped it and started another batch last week. Wednesday I think it was. 250g strong flour, 250ml tepid water and 6 or 7 green grapes chopped up to start the fermentation. I put it in a plastic sweet box that we had from Christmas and left it to fester until Sunda...
