Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

On a general point, considering the mileage, I am as fit as anyone my age can reasonably expect to be. It's age that is the problem and if you are above the government age limit for treatment Gott helfe mir may be your best option although I don't believe it will! So keep yourself safe. More bleach...

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

Here is an extract from my daughter's email: "My friend also a nurse messaged me today. She had wrestled all night not sleeping as she didn’t know whether to warn me. Anyway basically she said patients with COPD or heart failure will not be given ICU beds and possibly not even Oxygen if supplies run...

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

I think I know what Trippy doesn’t want to say.. ( is it about who/who isn’t going to be considered for care? Blanket rule - don’t bother going to hospital.) I'll say it, high risk cases excluded from intensive care. Is that right, Tripps? My eldest daughter works for the NHS in Cumbria in the comm...

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

Thanks, Tiz. I'll just keep an open mind whilst the blame game is running. Who knows what caused it? I'm in a country in which I want to remain so I dare not say anything controversial and you know that isn't like me! :extrawink:

And what I want to know is what happened (law wise) to those that killed and sold the animals in the markets that caused all this in the first place? Does anyone know? Perhaps Chinatyke knows! :smile: I'd also like to hear him tell us whether the Chinese people believe their leaders who have been c...

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

I went into the local KFC yesterday and sat down waiting for my meal.

A lady 2 tables away from me shouted "Put your mask on"

"Why? Am I likely to get infected with Covid in here?" I said.

"No" she replied "because you're bloody ugly."

Wendy, I did a bit of photo image adjusting and pulled the brightness down to an absolute minimum. The church became clearer and the trees disappeared. I can't figure out where the row of houses were. Looking at old maps shows the mill but only houses on Stone bridge. It could be before the Town Ha...

British humour is so eccentric! Imagine being in lock down for a few weeks with 100 toilet rolls! At least I can eat my chickens and talk to that woman I found on my sofa this morning!

China, some good things there. It sounds very calm, boring but calm. No panic. It sounds like your area has lost it’s character for a while, but as you say people are optimistic. Luckily you have your partner to ‘wait it out’ with. All the best. Funny you should say that. When I came downstairs thi...

China, are you still living in isolation. How are people coping? How is the mood, are your neighbours still singing in the afternoons?

Tiz, the vapour was Easy Start for diesel engines. I always assumed it was ether but could be mistaken. It was a cold day and we were in a freezing garage and the Easy Start was hanging in the air like a mist. It didn't explode but we were both poorly and were told it was Phosgene from the reaction...
