Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

I believe there are two variant jabs. One for the under 65's and another for those over. Apparently I qualify for the latter even though I am still 64, I am in my 65th year. :extrawink:

Did you get the reg Stanley? Report the bugger if you did, too many inconsiderate morons on the road who think they own it. Glad you are OK, after a fashion, you do right, take it easy.

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

Same at our surgery Tiz but we have a long corridor where everyone lines up, same 2min slots. They sometimes run two treatment rooms when it's very busy.

Re: THE FLATLEY DRYER

Back in the mid 50's I can remember the two immaculately dressed Sikh gentlemen who used to come round with Betterware goods. Their suitcases looked like Aladdin's Cave to a little lad. I remember that if they failed on the sales pitch that day they gave away small tester tins of wax furniture polis...

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Thanks Kev, I'm hoping not to be available by the end of next week but I will give you a shout if I'm still here and not sorted. No roof access required at all just up to the eye on the gable. It's the remote end that has failed not the business end that is tied back to my chimney stack. It's failed...

Excellent news on the song Kev. Last night actually, I noticed that the end of my HF wire antenna has broken from it's paracord tether which in itself is intact but now hanging free. The end of the ladder line antenna is in my next door but one neighbours back yard. Must be the termination on the la...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

I got a call yesterday from the local surgery. Apparently they had availability of a BP monitor for me to take 5 days of readings with! These will be the readings they asked for after my last surgery BP check and which I supplied them with around six weeks ago from my own machine. I remember handing...

Yes, Nice photo's Tiz. I think I might know the bloke from Keighley who renovated the Jeep in one of your images through the WR 28th re-enactment group. Lots of the restorers are members. I know one bloke who keeps a Sherman tank in his garden along with sundry other wagons, Jeeps and half-tracks. I...

Most folk exist quite happily with various strains of bacteria. A lot of people are MRSA carriers and never know it unless tested for a specific purpose in order to reduce infection risk as in hospital surgery. It's the possibility of cross infection which carries the greatest risk, one man's meat i...

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

If mine comes across a word that I know is right I just add it to the dictionary that sorts if for future use. Mainly had it with electronic terms. If it's a general dictionary not surprising that some stuff is not covered, they should all do common words though.

Nothing has changed in the site software Tiz, default language for the board is British English.

If you right click in the post editor, what does it say under language for you?
