    Simply click here. So my first warning in a previous thread here wasn't totally unfounded.

        The other wk they were saying that any alcohol whatsoever is carcinogenic. Previously it was a glass of red actually did you good. Teetotallers weren't s'posed to live as long as moderate drinkers. Cliff Richard owns a vineyard in Portugal and drinks a couple of glasses a night. Apart from the Botox and the dodgy hair dye he doesn't look too bad on it imo.

        I bet he doesn't use energy efficient light bulbs though.

          Seeing us out

          My wife, who wears glasses for reading and can never find them 'cos invariably she's placed them on top of her head, has bought lots 'n' lots of boxes of ordinary light bulbs 'cos she cannot see without lighting the house like Blackpool Illuminations. Think we've got enough of the old variety to last us 'til we're in our dotage! Speaking of which, I'm now officially old enough to be put in a care home. If we could afford one, that is, which we can't. Maybe when we sell the house and chattels.

            Care homes are out, MIL's is £3250.00 pm disgusting as she worked all her life, paid her taxes etc never claimed for anything nor got child allowance as that was in the day when if you had one got nought and where has it got her, selling everything to be looked after, whilst others come into the country or do diddly squat to help the country and get everything handed to them on a plate, now look what you have done get down from the soapbox.

                Soon as pa (pictured below in his heyday) snuffed it ma joined Dateline. Remarried and lost her marbles. Awful business.
                So no inheritance for me. Still, what's money if you ain't got your health?! The little boy (my 1st cousin) featured by the pony is now in his sixties and lives nr Brixham.
                He was struck by a passing car in his twenties whilst checking something under his own car bonnet and was left a little brain damaged. V like that rower who's just been hit by a truck. Lived with his ma till she went into a home and died last yr aged 89.
                'Course doing craft fairs keeps one's mental agility and physical strength up and we shouldn't need ever to end up in a care home.

                    the real cause for concern is dihydrogen monoxide.

                      Carbon monoxide poisoning from a blocked flue

                      Over time this has created flu-like symptoms, the feeling we'd had too much to drink the night before. (Which was always partially the case.) Dizziness. So. After much palaver I oversaw the removal of the monstrous solid fuel Aga from the far corner of our kitchen last mth. Choh! What a spectacle that was! Old farmer v much in the Bernard Matthew's vein and his associate, Pops, use rollers, planks, skates and a hydraulic trolley to extricate it.

                      The monster was gradually, intermittently, turned right, lowered slightly, raised slightly, kicked slightly to much "How's it going, Pops? Need the skates? All right on the left there? Wooh, we're into the wall! P'raps put a plank under that," while Alan, the Bernard Mathews lookalike, was guiding the hydraulic trolley along a series of plyboard sheets across the living room carpet. Fortunately I'd had the foresight to provide some underlying bed sheets to protect it. "Well done, Gren!" was the response.

                      Out through the front door it eventually goes and sliding down a plyboard ramp over the front doorsteps it drops down, shunting Alan (the Bernard Mathews lookalike) right into his solar plexus into a pyracantha hedge. "Good job I laid off the baked beans this morning," he laughed.

                      And down on a makeshift plyboard ramp it went out onto the lane, where I had to guide the traffic. Responsibility. Lives at stake. Oomph. But I coped. V gratifying the way drivers responded to my guiding hand movements.

                      And then, just at the last minute, as the Aga beast nosedived down the ramp onto the lane it started to barrel over. Aaargh! Bernard Mathews just grabbed it in time. Phew, again!

                      But we're free: lungs no longer congested by ash 'n' fumes, kitchen tiles no longer having to be cleaned every other day. We're at last walking round the whole of the house in the same slippers room to room.

                      In other words, as Hazel said, we're now almost normal.

                            Well, probably not 100% of people. Some people who drown will have drowned in other liquid substances......
