Just a quick update, gents, on my neck scan results: all clear, nothing serious to worry about and definitely no cancer = happy bunny!
Many thanks for your support and encouragement: only my kidney and diabetes reviews to go.....

Relieved Ron.

General Discussion Area / Health updates.
« on: 15 September 2019, 01:32:00 »
Hi All.

As mentioned elsewhere, my car passed its MOT last week, no advisories, just a clear pass and a compliment from the tester on its condition for its age!
I had an appointment with the diabetes consultant last Friday and he wants me to go on to insulin. Obviously I'm not keen, but I want to live, so I'll have to accept it. He did say that so long as I keep my blood sugar level under control. I won't have to give up driving - phew!
I have another appointment this coming Wednesdaay to get the results of my neck scan regarding suspected cancer: fingers crossed.
Also, Wednesday week I have an appointment with my kidney specialist - the one who gave me two years to live!

Ron.

General Discussion Area / Excel gone bozwonk!
« on: 31 July 2019, 10:30:13 »
I need to monitor and record my blood pressure daily and use Excel to do so, but as of yesterday I am unable to enter new data in the cells: no response at all!
I tried refreshing and even making a new spreadsheet, but the son of a bachelor stubbornly refuses to co-operate. Any ideas gents?

Omega General Help / Well done, Autoglass!
« on: 27 May 2019, 16:21:17 »
Despite my trepidation about having Autoglass replace my cracked windscreen, especially after reading the comments in a similar thread earlier, they arrived on time today with a 2-man crew and new rubbers.
Unfortunately, the rubbers were pattern and didn't fit very well, so they re-used my originals, which thankfully were in good condition.
They did an excellent, thoroughly professional job,  even removing the rust revealed under the bottom trim - and primed it too!  :y :y :y 8) :)

They ain't ALL bad.....

General Discussion Area / Titan TTL488GDO petrol strimmer
« on: 19 May 2019, 23:49:14 »
I have been given the above strimmer as a non-worker and as yet haven't investigted it, due to lack of strip-down instructions.
Does anyone have any knowledge of this machine, because it also has a hedge trimmer/weed and shrub trimmer attachment which would be ideal for cutting back the forest on my grandparents' graves (long story there...)

General Discussion Area / Retail question - Lizzie?
« on: 29 March 2019, 18:48:30 »
It's an Own Brand question, basically, but a specific example caught my attention today when buying vinegar:-
Sarson's 19.4p/litre Morrisson's 7.7p/litre

That's a big difference, so how come and how do supermarkets gain?

General Car Chat / Cam cover gaskets.
« on: 04 February 2019, 14:13:07 »
My nearside cam cover is leaking a little oil onto the exhaust manifold (I think), so please may I ask what the current thinking is regarding sources of new gaskets, please?

Omega General Help / My neighbour's wheel nuts
« on: 20 October 2018, 12:32:47 »
Sorry to make another post regarding locking wheel nuts, but my neighbour has got a puncture in one of his tyres and cannot find the Key to unlock the security wheel nut - his 2-year-old may be responsible!
Any suggestions as to how to undo the thing without major destruction, please?

Ron.

P.S. I want to help, because his wife is drop-dead gorgeous........

Omega General Help / Is my OBDII bozwonk.....
« on: 19 September 2018, 13:19:55 »
.....or am I doing something wrong? The eml light keeps coming on and going off at random intervals, and Cataclean didn't put it out. Luckily, the MOT tester didn't comment on it, but I would like to clear it. I tested with an OBD code reader and it declared that there were no codes found, despite my doing the Pedal Trick and finding Code 0430.
I was hoping that the code reader would clear any codes, but if it cannot even detect codes, is the feader 'dangle berries'ed or am I at fault?

General Discussion Area / Lizzie, please explain.....

.....this strange retail pricing stratagem. Our local Poundland has spades and forks marked as "5, or 2 for 5".
The staff declared it crazy, too! ??? ??? ???
