    Ed, I kind of agree with your statement ‘most elderly drivers know their limits and ease off on the pedal’ but I’ve seen so many near misses because of old folk. Common one round here is a national speed limit zone and people doing 30 in what sounds like 1st gear, engine screaming away. They get to the 20mph zone and do about 35 mph through it…[Read more]

    Loads of room in there Dave .Very slick build

    Les, is that for me or Ed, or both?

    Uncharitable, no. He’s already been spotted driving his new motor without a seatbelt on.

    The new motor was delivered yesterday. Without his status that wouldn’t happen to anyone else unless you paid many times over the odds for it.Very doubtful then. The logistics are complex.

    Of course the police are…[Read more]

    Totally agree Ed. A few million well spent in their eyes.

    From a quick read of the link posted by Ed above the liability still exists though.

    How much would the Kia driver take to keep schtum I wonder? More importantly how much would the injured lady take?

    If I was in that position I’d be after a LOT of £ and negotiating with news agencies just in case.

    It was in my news feed, it was a small paper reporting on it. It said that it was the gits fault. OFC I can’t find the report now as it’s probably been pulled or ‘lost’.

    Nothing will happen about it because of who he is, everyone must know that.

    I wouldn’t be at all surprised if in a few months there’s a not very well publicised statement…[Read more]

    Thanks JCD.

    The GP did mention an MRI but also said that it was x-ray first, additional tests on my next bloods (2 weeks to go) and him contacting my rheumatologist for any insight he may have.

    Down here it’s all ‘this step first, then that one’ no jumping to the sensible options.

    I saw the GP today, appointment booked a little while back.

    Just as well as on Sunday my right shoulder let off an almighty crack that had me lying on the floor in total agony. It does this periodically but nothing like the one on Sunday for over a year. My left shoulder also does it but nowhere near as bad as my right one.

    GP reckons it could…[Read more]

  • Hope it was good one!

    Went to a Stress Control course today, met my Autism support worker there.

    All I can say is it bloody better work, not been that stressed in years. I get stressed easily. 95 minute panic attack, which apparently is very unlikely.

    If I could walk I’d have been out of there in seconds. Lots of big women congratulating each other on making it…[Read more]

  • PlaneMan replied to the topic PC World… in the forum PC Talk 1 week, 3 days ago

    I’m not surprised at all. I had a click and collect order of a cheap, big buttoned mobile for a friend of my mothers, SIM free, unlocked, as shown on the email confirmation.

    Got to the shop and picked the order up, wrong phone, SIM locked to O2 and rude staff. For once I was glad I am knackered as I would have raised hell in that shop. First…[Read more]

  • Sunday morning I took this photo, the land has had many planning applications over the years, 2 were actually passed only to be dissolved due to blatant bungs to council members. They ‘resigned’. No criminal charges were ever made, of course.

    The latest attempt was thrown out about 10 weeks ago after the ‘impact on the village and wildlife’ was…[Read more]

  • PlaneMan replied to the topic Arthritis? in the forum Ailments 1 week, 5 days ago

    I’m seeing the GP next week (thank whichever deity you wish, or not, for online appointment checking and booking) so I may well bug him about that. Thanks.

    Glad it went O.K. with the wife.

    Richard, I also have joint hypermobility. My hands used to be extremely flexible, probably still are but the pain stops me finding out. I also suffer from it in my other joints but my wrists are very bad now, they dislocate daily. I don’t worry about it as it’s a stab of pain and they are back in place and working as normal.

    I’m waiting on a more…[Read more]

    Went to see the Chronic Pain Management people today. Waste of my time and theirs.

    The doctor was baffled why I was referred to them as on reading my notes anything that the NHS could offer has been tried, except an exercise referral which is done by the GP anyway.  Not amused.

  • Near the end of my mother’s cul de sac they built a new housing estate about 7 years ago, mostly ‘executive’ but some smaller and ‘social housing’ tucked away in a corner down the bottom. Social housing is the only reason planning permission was granted (apart from brown envelopes passed under the table).  The people in the village were stunned…[Read more]

  • If anyone fancies giving Smarty a go drop me a PM, I now have a referral link which will give 2 months free to the new customer and I’ll get a month free as well.

    Just activated the SIM and put the PAC request in, all very easy so far, the dashboard also gives a very accurate reading of how much data I have left after checking the speed, 1.97 GB.

    That’s great Ed.

    One problem though, in 3 years time someone will kneel down and find a piece of Lego embedded in their knee. 😃

  • Good luck with that Lee.

    I got knackered putting up a new blind in mum’s spare room not long ago, took about 3 hours in total, non-ruined me would have done it and had been starting a beer in 30 minutes.

  • Dave, I suspect you’re right. I don’t need wifi calling, most of my contact is via hangouts. The extra stuff 3 was trying to tempt me with just didn’t get used. I did watch about an hour of Netflix one month but as BL said with a bit of planning that’s easily got around.

    I reckon I could survive on about 250MB if I put some effort in.
