Re: TODAY'S PENNINE WEATHER

I always thought that the damage caused by diabetes was like a ratchet. once it went 'click' there was not turning it back all you could do was try to stop it happening again. I'll always have it, my hba1c has been 'normal' for a few years now and, according to my GP, if I presented now I wouldn't ...

Re: POLITICS CORNER

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-52566030 Lots of use of the words 'expected' and 'assume'. The 14% drop in the economy is overshadowing the other prediction further down the article (good old BBC) that the economy is expected to bounce back 15% in early 2021. The 2% drop in the average wage pac...

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

I will pass on your comments to my friends and relatives who are nurses in the NHS, I'm sure they'll be thrilled.
I find it hard to criticise those fighting against a virus with no, current, known cure.
Should we also be criticising them for the number of cancer related deaths then?

Re: TODAY'S PENNINE WEATHER

What a lovely day it is today, scones, jam, clotted cream and a chilled bottle of Cava. It'll do wonders for my blood sugars but I'm in an 'am I bothered' frame of mind today. They'll be back to 'normal' by teatime.

A couple of things, is the provision of PPE in private care homes not the responsibility of the care home owner? The school meal vouchers process is, in the majority, working. There is a minority that are 'falling through the net' but the media only seem to highlight those. There are slso some who a...

Bartering with Wendy.

Some books for 6 eggs was a great deal for me, turned them into an omelette for lunch. I had an onion, a red pepper, a mushroom and some cheese lurking in the fridge.

Note that the diagnosis was very late December, the 29th. The man's wife worked at Charles de Gaulle airport and had been in contact with many Chinese travellers. This is an isolated case and most scientists would wait to see any further such early cases before giving credence to this one. Good poi...

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

There is a BBC News story that a pneumonia case, back in December in France, has had the nasal swabs retested and they came back positive for Covid-19. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-52526554 A question for the scientists on here, would the virus survive, on a swab, from December? If that ...
