I've got the GM supplied wheel brace and towing eye from my dead Desmond available if anyone wants one. Still in the pouch too. F.O.C.

If so, you'll have to quarantine for 14 days on your return. Second spike anyone?

Reading on the text service of the BBC that the price of West Texas Intermediate is a minus figure now. -$37. Worlds gone mad, they are having to pay people to take it away. :o

General Discussion Area / Odd feeling
« on: 26 March 2020, 19:46:54 »
Had a very strange thing happen this morning. Was doing my usual ablutions when a numbness went up my right arm into my shoulder then down my back as far as my waist. Thought, bugger, am i having a stroke or something like that. Phoned 111 and was told the wait for a call back was over 15 mins so phoned 999. Very impressed, they were here in a few minutes. Gave me an ECG and various other checks and concluded that i may have overdid the amount of gardening that i did yesterday and just a slight movement, (no pun intended  :D) resulted in a badly trapped nerve in the big muscle in the shoulder. Still have numbness in arm, shoulder and ribs but it's slowly easing thankfully. It could take some time to get back rights but was grateful to the ambulance crew and the NHS considering the shite that's going down at the moment.

General Discussion Area / T/V licence for over 75s
« on: 08 March 2020, 15:34:50 »
Our licence is SWMBOs name. Over the last few days i've had a few e-mails, addressed to me not her, saying there is something wrong with my direct debit and i haven't renewed my licence. It quotes the correct expiry date, so i sent an e-mail back explaining that the wife is the named licence holder. It seems the,according to my e-mail account that my replies are not getting through to the sender, which says it's the T/V licence authority.  In the meantime we have received a new licence which has an expiry date of 31st May, this year, also stating that we need to do nothing at the moment and they will be in touch at a later date to inform us what to do when the over 75 concession runs out on May 31st. So, i'm assuming these e-mails that i'm getting are a fisching scam. Has anyone else received anything similar?

General Discussion Area / Power cut this afternoon
« on: 09 February 2020, 22:51:46 »
Went down for a couple of hours, (daughters off for over six). On returning, all appliances came back on ok, except my hard drive/DVD player. Damn thing won,t power up at all. Have changed the fuse in the plug but no joy. It,s like me, getting on a bit  ;D. Could the outage have fried something inside on one of the boards?  Anyone with any ideas please.

Just reading on BBC news website that Norton Motorcycles have fallen into administration. Hope it can be saved. Seems they owed a 300k tax bill.

General Discussion Area / Credit scores.

Keep seeing loads of adverts for these on the T/V. What the hell are they all about and what good do they do? Asked my kids (they are all in their 50s) and they weren,t really sure. Can any of you world wise buggers on here enlighten me.  :D

General Discussion Area / Bugger, seems i have A/F again
« on: 20 October 2019, 23:19:35 »
Spent five hours in hospital this afternoon as have had a weak and erratic pulse since Friday afternoon. Phoned 111 and they said, after some searching questions, to get my sorry arse up to A&E.  They,ve changed one of my drugs and put me back on to blood thinners. At least it,s one of the modern ones and not Warferin this time. Will have to wait and see if i need to go to Papworth for a third Catheter Abblation. Oh well, another joy of getting old i suppose.

...... if we really need it. The Worlds first Vagina Museum has opened in London,  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D according to BBC news website. Sorry, can.t do linkies. :-[

is being phased out early next year. Shame, i like to run through the news and sport early mornings. Also found it handy checking travel before starting a journey. Just another cost cutting exercise to pay their over inflated, so called stars. ::)
