Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

I received a call from Claire at the surgery yesterday to tell me that my blood pressure check was due and that the surgery was closed for the BP clinic. She knows I have my own BP machine so has asked me to do a weeks worth of twice a day readings. Once completed to post it through the letterbox at...

Does Kev have a Londonish accent?
I do indeed, we only ventured north in 2004.
He was taking up to much room in overcrowded London so came here where we have plenty of space for big blokes. :biggrin2: :extrawink:

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

Ian, has Sally tried ringing what was Albert Hartley's? Worth a try... They are still shifting a lot of cloth. We will recycle what Kev has offered and we also have a source for some Albert Hartley cloth from an employee who bought some but never got round to using it. Sally is coming to the end of...

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

I am fed up with hearing nothing but Johnson in ICU when I want to hear news about the pandemic. Just had 25 minutes of it. Enough all ready! Indeed and it's all conjuncture and supposition.

Boris's situation seems to be following the classic progression of the infection as has been described by the medics. The break point is around 5 - 7 days where, if infected and your immune system kicks in properly you should start to feel a bit better. Continued symptoms may indicate that the infec...

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

Indeed the mask debate goes on but to me its a better bet than coughing into your elbow. A mask will not stop you getting the virus that is clear which is why it is important for the frequent hand washing and wiping of surfaces. What a mask will do is mitigate to some degree spreading the virus if y...
