Hi Tug Kenny, I had an experience of a 'grid of dots' in my right eye and I was amazed at the speed the NHS moved.  Withing 40 minutes of leaving the doc's surgery I was being looked at by an eye consultant, I am pretty sure he also diagnosed       Posterial Vitreous Detatchment.  But after a few days the dots just vanished or maybe my brain cancelled them out!
I have a few floaters in both eyes but I can shake my head a bit and they move away from central vision.  If anyone wants to check if you have any look at a white ceiling.

I had a prostate op 3 years ago, involving the scrape out, mine was quite large and I had the benefit of the consultant there as he was training the other guy.  It is amazing just how big a tube can be inserted!!!  I was awake and had the epidural injection, which I would recommend.
In retrospect I only read the small print of the operation 2 days before the op, I later found out that there are other ways of shrinking the prostate, leaving some 'vital' bits still working.
Anyone had an alternative op?
regards Roy

What a wealth of letters we have on this subject. I expect our younger members are raising their eyes to the heavens.  It does seem that old age doesn't come alone and we can all draw comfort from each other's stories.

Next problem please.    :} :}

That's exactly what they also do here in OZ for an enlarged prostate, only down side is high risk of bladder infection, and is very painful, otherwise all back to normal.

Tony52 and all who have to walk on ice, try a set of Yaktrax . They are rubber framed spring-like cleats that go over your shoes. About 15 from outdoor shops.

That is right Mick, I`m at North 57, but for the Gulf Stream most of the UK would be wearing them too.  Of course I`m sure your railway system doesn't suffer the "wrong kind of snow" in winter or "leaves on the rails" in autumn. %)

Mick, what's this, then? :-) Photos taken in the NSW snow fields O0 When I was coach driving, we used to do a lot of trips to the snow, and I would go skiing 3 or 4 times each season.

Hi Peter I am at present in Maui & I can confirm that there is a real lack of snow around here. It is so funny, I left Canada this morning & there was snow & minus 15 below, 6 hours later I am in Maui & it is 85 above. seeing Christmas trees & decorations in this weather is very strange indeed. Peter I did know you got a wee bit of snow down under but I can live quite happily without it now after having it for 44 years in Canada, Merry Christmas & a happy New Year to you & yours, Peter, we will probably both be on the beach soaking up the sun, Mick B.

Hi Arrow just checked on line , no Boat clubs I am afraid. However I will try to get lost near the docks if possible to get some pictures. We are only in this location for a day as by coming one day early the air fare was less than half if we had arrived today instead, don't ask me why. We have as you can see internet at this location, I hope we do in our permanent location. Contrary to popular belief we North Americans are not filthy rich,we had loads of air miles from our business card, no debt & no mortgage so it leaves a few bob in your pocket @ the end of the year. I don't know how much longer I will be up to taking trips like this so I am doing it while I still can . I love travel & taking photos of what makes different places tick. If possible will give you an update later. Mick B.
