Hi Guys

I had to work X'mas day in Crewe Station area - caught my foot on a cable and went down hard and fast
erm.........and I am a generously proportioned guy - fully ready for a two year famine or basting.  {-)

Ended up in Crewe A&E - in, triaged, x-rayed, doctored, medicated, out - all in just over an hour   :o :-))

Knees hurt, hands hurt, left wrist splinted, a wonderful groin injury that they thought might be a pelvic fracture,
and you know what - I am soooooooooo happy :o

As I fell (thankfully breaking the fall) my mouth just kissed a raised metal plate (a LERP) which placed a large
metal bolt at my forehead ................... Oh I think it was almost check out time there boys.
Ah well the drugs mean no Magic Mead this X'mas hol, and the fall means loads and loads of forms to fill in.

Seasons Regards Dave

Hi all , today I have lost a very dear friend to cancer. He was born in England & never lost his British sense of humour. He was very honest & a very loyal friend & although we knew he had not long to live it was still a terrible shock to us. He was only 61 years old. I have shed many tears tonight as I write this. It is 3.30pm but sleep will not come tonight, life is so unfair sometimes, Mick B.

Same  as that Mick, I feel for you...I lost a very good friend and sweeper driver work mate last Sunday. Just back from six weeks in Oz, landed Saturday night, died at home Sunday morning due to a massive heart attack. At least he didn't suffer, the paramedics told his wife he was dead before he hit the floor...that was his one wish that when his time was up he would go quickly and quietly.

Rest in peace, Fireman Sam...



On a lighter note (if I may) after fifty plus years of smoking, I am now on my tenth day of quitting. On my last visit to the doctor, he told me in no uncertain terms that if I didn't stop now, then it wouldn't be worth me booking a summer holiday, because I probably wouldn't make it. My ladyfriend also stopped a week before me, we are both using those E-cigs...wonderful things, wish I'd bought one before. I haven't wanted a smoke, haven't missed the nicotine, and believe it or not, my food is beginning to taste better even after just ten days.

                   Today's little worry ....   SHINGLES

No, it's not me, but my good lady.  Any cures or advice please.

We've been on the Web and were inundated with reasons and symptoms but not much in the way of soothing sympathy !!

Antiviral tablets are one treatment. Consult your GP.

Cheers for that subculture.

We took some photo's but I've been banned from transmitting them as it might frighten the children.  I have learnt that it's a 'hang on' from Chicken pox and is contagious to all around it.

Being so cold outside has stopped me going out and spreading it, so some good there eh !!  We checked Wikepedia and the first picture on the page is exactly a duplicate of my picture.  O0

I had a friend who had shingles and was off work for quite a while - only good news was
he lost a lot of weight whilst ill and looked ten years younger when he came back. I'd need
to get a few doses just to make a dent in my weight.

Hope your good lady gets well soon.

Thanks Dave.

I should imagine one dose was enough.   {:-{     I'm waiting to start scratching cause I'm one degree down with the sniffles myself.  :}     Haven't  touched a boat for a week

Shingles is only contagious to those who haven't had chicken pox, if you or others have had chicken pox, you can't 'catch' shingles.

Are you sure?
Tug---Kenny's boats may get shingles on the bottom if beached or sunk  >:-o

on a serious note get the medical attention as soon as a relative of SWMBO has gone blind because shingles got to her eyes and there was nothing done about it and now its too late.

Don't want to scare you but get her to the medic asap.

As we all know there is a lot of junk written about medical problems on the Web.  I have just asked Sheila and she recommends
thefollowing website which all the doctors in her practise used to advise their patients to have a look at if they wanted infomation sheets
about a particular condition.  I believe it is written by medical professionals not someone who had an aunt who had a cousin who's nextdoor neighbour
might have caught something similar.
She did say catch it early and it can sometimes be treated with anti- virals.  Otherwise it is painkillers (apparently it very sore) and soothing creams like
Calomine Lotion.  She advised get to GP ASAP

Today seems an improvement.  It's on the upper back and side of her arm but no new outbreaks so it seems to be settling . We are using the creams and it's looking all-right at the moment.

Thank you for your thoughts and advice. We can now worry about my sniffles.  :}

Cheers,
