Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Checking back in the medical thread I find that it is only just over 4 weeks since I applied for my driving licence back, I could have sworn it was longer. Not had any correspondence or contact from the DVLA via any of the preferred methods I gave them, landline, mobile, text and email. The DVLA the...

Re: Blood Donors

I have received my invitation to the donor session next Friday. In honesty I will have to tick the "had surgery since last donation" box again as that is still the case. That should invoke the Blue Nurse again, hopefully Tracy who bounced me last time. I have my get out of jail free letter though th...

Re: CHILDHOOD MEMORIES

The benefits of saving were instilled at an early age at Gisburn Road Infants and Primary. To compliment the home savings bank, the school operated a banking collection service on behalf of the Yorkshire Penny Bank. Subscribers were issued with both a small red woven paper backed bank book and a big...

Keep mobile as much as you can Wendy, even if you have to take painkillers to do it. Drilled into me by my physio's. You will already know that anyway. I wish you a speedy recovery.

Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

No, big fat ones. :extrawink: In Greece it is cooked with meat on the bone. It's shepherds or peasants lamb stew traditionally slow cooked in an earth oven. It's the combination of oregano, garlic and lemon with tomato that gives it the special flavour. It's my favourite Greek dish. Best restaurants...

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

We are in band B on the croft despite a lot of other properties around us being in A. This comes about because of the crazy way that the banding was calculated a number of years ago. We have asked to be re-banded to come in line with other properties but the council will have none of it. :sad:

Nice day for a walk if a tad breezy. I nipped round to see Miles at the pie shop and relieved him of one of his Cornish Pasties for lunch. Packed up and set off via my normal escape route up to Standridge and then the ridge route up to the summit. It was a bit breezy when you had gained a bit of hei...

I'm sorry for her medical conditions but she didn't have to take the job. In my book she stands alongside Thatcher in being the second most damaging PM this country has ever had. Although she has brought us to the edge of the abyss there is still a chance of reason winning over. With Thatcher there ...

Her biggest problem was the "bloody awkward woman" stance which in effect stymied the debate and the solution to Brexit. Her total intransigence to accept a cross party solution and go it alone has led us to the complete impasse in parliament that we have now. She was handed a poison chalice as was ...
