Re: Cataract Operation

Speedy recovery Himerus. Most people find that their sight is vastly improved even though the procedure isn't very nice.

Re: Ant McPartlin .... issues?

I'm sure he does have issues, but I'm going with the consensus here. He could have seriously injured or even killed an innocent person. It's not as if he doesn't have enough money to pay someone to drive him or get a taxi.

Re: We are stranded in Switzerland!

The last time I was in Switzerland was some years ago and it was eye-wateringly expensive. Maybe it's changed now, but we needed a new tyre valve fitted and it cost almost as much as a whole new tyre in the UK.

Re: Coppers and big notes

£50 notes are pointless, you can't spend them anywhere.

Re: Coppers and big notes

Yes, this is a common practice. I once exchanged some money in a bank in France and was given some sweets out of the cash drawer as they didn't keep small change. However, in Britain prices only go up. There will be some initial bollocks about prices having being held back until they could be round...

I wish them well, but such is the power of The NRA they will have their work cut out.

Re: Stephen Hawking

RIP Professor Stephen Hawking, a remarkable man in every way. Not only his intellect and physical endurance, but the wicked sense of humour which never left him. He appeared as a character in The Simpsons and made many guest appearances in The Big Bang Theory.

Re: private messages

This is an old thread. :? I've been here a long time so I can send or receive PMs, but to be honest unless someone I've had a bit to do with needs to send me a message I don't really want them. I joined a forum, not a messaging service. When I see someone I've had little or nothing to do with has se...

Re: Gadgets!

A Snark. It's a little clip-on guitar tuner that you put on the headstock of the guitar to pick up the vibrations of the strings. I was sceptical, I could see it working on an acoustic because there is plenty of vibration, but I couldn't see how there would be enough on a solid body electric, I mean...

Re: How is your health?

I've been hit with three viral infections since Christmas and it has left me pretty weak and not that well. The GP says that, in addition to flu, there are some particularly nasty viruses around at the moment. Various tests seem to show that there isn't anything seriously wrong with me and he thinks...

Re: How is your health?

Body wise not too bad. I have never broken anything *touch wood*. I used to get tonsillitis a lot when I was younger. Nowadays it’s just 2 colds a year. Autumn and spring. Mentally not so good. Been off work for 6 weeks so far. Doctor says I’m exhausted and need to rest. Go figure. Sorry to hear th...

Re: The Thaw

There's just one little patch of snow left at the bottom of the garden, presumably because it piled up in the strong winds.
