Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

I will, pre op I was up to 20 - 30 miles without any problem with plenty of hills in the way. 60 to 70 miles a day when we did the coast to coast. I would love to get back to that but we'll have to see.

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

I just want it resolved, permanently. I expect you feel exactly the same. You just want to put the whole thing in the past and get back to normal. Indeed, but my normal may only be 90%. I will get the bike out soon and see if that brings the strength and stamina on a bit. I can start on the level a...

Re: COMPUTERS, THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY

We will see what the backlash is from the US semiconductor manufacturers who will be impacted by Trumps executive order. 44% of one named is a lot of business to lose overnight.

Current generation Talk Talk routers are manufactured by Huawei, so this post is being handled by their technology.

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

That's the attitude Maz. For your foot drop, have you not been offered an orthotic device? They do help, I had a carbon blade job first to get me walking again and have had two different ankle cuff type devices since. I only wear mine now with my trainers. I can manage without for shorter sessions w...

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

We used a projected digital clock in the exam rooms for the same reason. Invigilators handbook says digital is not as forbearing for some students. Analogue is much easier for visualising time remaining though. Those that wear watches are OK with analogue although watches have to be removed during t...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Similar to my recovery Maz. I still have to concentrate on foot placement, comes as a result of previously having a turned out ankle. As I lost all muscle memory down my right side it has allowed me to correct that particular gait but it is tiring maintaining the correct placement on every step. A d...

Re: THE FLATLEY DRYER

The postcode lottery supports a range of charities. Reading their T&C's led me to find out that they also maintain a pot that allows them to offer funding grants for projects taken on by smaller registered UK charities. Quite useful for Bosom Friends, we can apply for up to £20,000 which will, if we...

Re: POLITICS CORNER

Regarding Thursdays ballot, you will be voting for a party rather than individual candidates. Those for each party are ranked in order of selection and are elected in turn if the votes stack in the parties favour in each round of counting. The only exception is if any of the individual independent c...

I subscribe to the Postcode Lottery and checking the results yesterday I found that my old postcode for my house when we lived on York Street has won, nothing for me yet here but properties on St James's won a few months ago. Sods law working at the moment. :confused: :smile:

Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

I have some pork and pepper sausage (had a butty for lunch at the trig). Remainder will be turned into a sausage stir thing with tomatoes, baked beans, onions and peppers. That will also produce some portions for the freezer.

Re: PUBLIC SERVICE CUTS

Of course not, this problem is totally down to Tory policy and the choice of austerity. Food Banks didn't exist until the Tories came into power, it's a national disgrace.

I expect getting back behind the wheel will be at your own discretion.
If the DVLA are involved in any way, they don't do discretion. :sad:

Not always, my Motorola smartphone is still going strong after 7 years. It was a fraction of the price of the most desirables at the time and still does exactly the same job. Cheap, but not El Cheapo in any way.
